Hyaluronic acid

Hyaluronic acid (HA) is a carbohydrate, or more precisely a mucopolysaccharide, which is found throughout the body. The complex structure can consist of several thousand sugars. When the molecules are not bound to each other, they bind to water and a gel-like material of high viscosity and pressure resistance is formed. The function of hyaluronic acid is, among other things, to bind water and "lubricate" the moving parts of the body, such as joints and muscles. Hyaluronic acid is one of the hydrophilic ("water-loving") molecules in nature. Where in the body does hyaluronic acid occur? Hyaluronic acid is naturally found in almost every cell in the body and occurs in high concentrations in specific areas. As varied as the areas are, so is the function of hyaluronic acid. HA is found in bones and cartilage, in the synovial fluid of joints (synovial fluid), in tendons, ligaments and connective tissue, in the scalp and hair follicles, in the lips and eyes. In addition, hyaluronic acid is found everywhere between the individual body cells and supplies tissues and structures with nutrients everywhere where no blood vessels lead. Fairvital offers a wide range of hyaluronic acid products. In the online shop you can order hyaluronic acid tablets or capsules in various dosages. A cosmetic anti-aging serum with hyaluronic acid rounds off the hyaluronic acid range.
