Hyaluronic acid is a multiple sugar (glycosaminoglycan) produced naturally in the body. It is an important component of connective tissue and thus of the skin, cartilage, bones and joint fluid. The vitreous body of the eye also contains hyaluronic acid. Hyaluronic acid, which is formed by connective tissue cells, has great water-binding power. Its high viscosity ensures moisture, elasticity and stability of the tissue. As a component of the joint fluid, it promotes the lubricating function of the joints.
With age, the body's ability to produce hyaluronic acid decreases.
Hyaluronic acid from Allvital contains pure hyaluronic acid as a sodium salt in capsule form.
