A new study shows supplementing with Hyaluronic Acid for twelve weeks may reduce wrinkles and improves the luster of the skin.
60 adults participated in this randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled trial. Participants ranged in age from 22 to 59 years of age and included both men and women. Individuals were randomly chosen to be in 1 of 3 groups. The first group received a placebo; the next group received a Hyaluronic Acid (HA) formulation with a molecular weight of 2k. The last group received an HA supplement with a molecular weight of 300k. The groups receiving the HA received a dosage of 120 mg daily.
Using three-dimensional analysis of the participants skin, researchers found that the groups supplementing with the HA had a better level of the whole sulcus (groves in the skin) to volume ratio, wrinkle volume ration and wrinkle area ration. The Hyaluronic Acid group supplementing with the product with the 300k molecular weight also saw significant reductions in wrinkles when compared with the group supplementing with the placebo.
50% of the body’s Hyaluronic Acid is found in the skin. Breakdowns of collagen and Hyaluronic Acid are believed to be the cause of wrinkles. Because Hyaluronic Acid effects the skin cells it is noted that daily supplementation with HA can moisturize the skin since the metabolites of HA increase the skin moisture content.
