These days, you’re hard pressed to find a serum or face cream that isn’t boasting hyaluronic acid on the label. Alongside collagen, this in-demand, anti-aging ingredient is taking the beauty and wellness industries by storm. But the benefits of hyaluronic acid are more than skin deep.
WHAT IS HYALURONIC ACID?
Nearly 70% of the human body is made up of H2O. Of course, all that water isn’t just sloshing around inside of you. It’s stored in connective tissue and organs, like your brain and nervous system, digestive tract, eyes, skin and joints. So how does the water in your body know where to go? And how does it stay in the right place?
Hyaluronic acid, or HA, is a naturally occurring substance that bonds together to create a net-like matrix that attracts and “holds” water molecules. In fact, HA is estimated to hold nearly 1,000 times its weight in water.
Hyaluronic acid helps increase your body’s hydration where you need it most, including in your skin — where it helps your complexion look fuller and younger — and in the synovial fluid between your joints to help you move with ease and avoid discomfort.
What’s more, water isn’t the only thing hyaluronic acid binds to. It also binds to collagen, delivering even more benefits to your skin and joints. When HA levels in the body are optimal, it creates an ideal environment for collagen. Together, this intracellular matrix of HA and collagen is critical to your body’s structural support and even promotes healthy eyes, nails, hair, and gums.
SHOULD I ADD HYALURONIC ACID TO MY ROUTINE?
Your body metabolizes at least 1/3 of the hyaluronic acid it produces on a daily basis, so it constantly needs to create more. Plus, as you age, your body naturally decreases production of substances like HA and collagen. However, levels of the enzyme that causes skin aging — hyaluronidase (think of it as HA’s arch-nemesis) — don’t decrease. Not only does this affect the way you look (dryness, visible fine lines and wrinkles, sagging skin, etc.), it affects the way your body functions on a cellular level.
Starting in your 20s, it can be beneficial to add hyaluronic acid into your beauty and wellness routine. And because collagen begins to decrease in your 20s too, it makes sense to seek out skin care products and supplements containing both. But there’s a catch…
As ingredients, hyaluronic acid and collagen molecules are naturally macromolecules — they’re too large for the body to absorb internally. That’s why a product’s manufacturing process can play a big role in how beneficial these nutraceutical ingredients are. While products containing hyaluronic acid and collagen are plentiful, few are manufactured to be bioavailable and deliver clinical results.
The good news? Collagen/HA Matrix® Technology in Modere CellProof and Liquid BioCell® is derived from a natural, single-source matrix that contains both HA and collagen — and Modere has a patented process to transform this matrix into the optimal molecular weight for proven bioavailability.
COLLAGEN/HA MATRIX® CHANGES THE WAY YOU AGE
Collagen/HA Matrix® is a result of research on hyaluronic acid and its effect on vitality and longevity. This science led to the discovery of chicken sternal cartilage as a unique natural source of HA that coexists with collagen in a matrix that mirrors human articular cartilage.
In addition to its unique composition, Collagen/HA Matrix® undergoes a patented Bio-Optimized™ manufacturing process that transforms the macromolecules into smaller micromolecules of the ideal size for absorption.
