How Hyaluronic Acid is Used in Mountain Ice Joint & Bone Health Complex
Hyaluronic acid, one of the key ingredients in Mountain Ice Joint & Bone Health Complex, is crucial to protecting our joints from long-term wear and tear. Although we associate acid with abrasive substances, hyaluronic acid is naturally present in our bodies, specifically our skin, connective tissues and eyes. It binds to water molecules, helping to retain them in order to keep tissue lubricated. Read on to learn how this powerful ingredient works to promote joint and bone health!
Repairing Skin Cells and Connective Tissue
Damaged, dehydrated tissue is susceptible to inflammation, the body's response mechanism in treating that damage. Inflammation is a valuable process, but needs to be regulated by the body or will cause more harm than help. Hyaluronic acid is necessary for the growth of new skin cells following damage, and is found in high concentrations in granulation tissue, the connective tissue that grows to fill in wounds. It doesn't just bind moisture to skin cells, but binds skin cells together.
Concentrations of hyaluronic acid increase in damaged tissue, where it's crucial to tissue regeneration and regulates inflammation levels. Increased hyaluronic acid promotes inflammatory response to injuries and wounds, but it then moderates this response by binding with proteins that inhibit inflammation. This contradictory response promotes healing but then manages the inflammation and new tissue growth that's crucial to the healing process but in excess can cause pain or damage.
Hyaluronic acid is naturally present in joints, where it helps retain moisture in the connective tissue between bones. This allows the tissue to bend and move more easily and creates less wear from friction. It also prevents the bones from grinding against each other painfully. Supplements of HA are commonly used by people suffering from osteoarthritis, and studies have indicated its effectiveness in reducing knee pain from OA.
