Hydration is Vital: Drink More Water and…Consume Hyaluronic Acid!
Among dieting, exercise, and the wishful thinking to acquire more sleep…there is one common New Year’s resolution that is almost as routinely forgotten as it is promised – “drink more water!” But in 2019, we now know you should add to that resolution – “consume more Hyaluronic Acid!” That’s right. The powerful combination can support your overall health like no other.
Yet, getting enough fluids is commonly overlooked. Not hydrating properly is a dangerous practice that can make or break your health—no matter how often you frequent the gym, or how strictly you stick to your diet.
Depending on your activity, and other environmental or physical conditions that may cause you to lose water, the average male requires about four liters of water per day.The average woman needs about three…and that’s the minimum.
But before you start feeling overwhelmed, let’s take a look at the impact a tiny molecule – Hyaluronic Acid – can actually have on your ability to retain hydration and, indeed, your health! (Spoiler alert: quality Hyaluronic Acid is available as a nutritional supplement).
Ever wonder why a headache is one of the telltale signs of dehydration? For good reason. We know that water makes up 70% of the human body. But let’s go a little deeper. Within that percentage, your brain is 80% water! As the command center for the rest of your body, it can be surprising that something so simple as hydrating can increase blood flow and oxygen to this critical, powerhouse organ. That hydration leads to an array of improved cognitive functions such as concentration, mood, emotions and even memory.
Said simply, hydration equals better focus and attitude. And Hyaluronic Acid can help ensure the retention of hydration to your brain.
Your joints are made up of cartilage, which is about 60% water. Cartilage acts as a protective layer that reduces friction and wear between bones. Synovial fluid is the substance which lubricates this cartilage. It is produced in your body by proper water intake. Not surprisingly, dehydration decreases water content in cartilage, resulting in wear, tear, and friction (not to mention pain!) in the joints.
But there’s good news for those who struggle with joint discomfort. Synovial fluid is made of Hyaluronic Acid, as well as lubricin, proteinases, and collagenases. But what is Hyaluronic Acid?
Hyaluronic acid is synthesized by the synovial membrane and secreted into your joint cavity to increase the viscosity and elasticity of your cartilage. It also lubricates the surfaces between synovium and cartilage. Combining Hyaluronic Acid, like that found in Hyalogic®’s Synthovial Seven, with appropriate daily water consumption, supports your joint health and your immune system. This encourages cell repair and renewal, circulation, and ultimately more rapid recovery.
As we get older, our body’s natural ability to produce Hyaluronic Acid diminishes. Many athletes and adults over 45 choose a proven Hyaluronic Acid joint support supplement to provide additional maintenance to their cartilage and joints.
Weight Loss and Detox
Think of water as your all-natural, self-cleaning system. Staying well hydrated aids in transporting waste in and out of your cells, which enable the waste-eliminating organs, like your liver and kidneys, to flush these toxins from your body. And Hyaluronic Acid helps retain that water to aid your body’s cleansing function.
On a similar note, drinking water can also help you lose weight! Very simply, water can help kick cravings and suppress your appetite by helping you feel fuller when hunger hits. And as backwards as it may seem, dehydration causes your body to hold onto water…in all the wrong places. That’s why a healthy water intake helps keep bloating and water retention at bay—and for zero calories to boot, it’s a feel-good health food – anytime, anywhere.
The skin is the largest organ of your body and made up of cells. Guess what these cells are made of? You guessed it—water! This supports our previous point that hydration not only protects but encourages proper cell growth and repair. Lack of hydration will eventually result in tight, flaky skin and early signs of aging.
Hyaluronic acid can not only be consumed in liquid form, but it also a highly moisturizing additive inl Hyaluronic Acid hand and body lotion.
How Hyalogic® Can Help
It goes without saying: without water, your organs will not function optimally. Even on your most immobile days, your body loses water. Whether it’s from sweating or just eliminating waste, your skin, eyes, joints and organs are not getting the sufficient amount of water they need without adequate water intake.
To aid your hydration routine, Hyaluronic Acid (often referred to as HA) is your new best friend. But the critical Hyaluronic Acid fluid your body produces has a half life of less than a day! In about three days, your body replaces effectively all of its HA. And your ability to regenerate it decreases with age and poor hydration, among other factors.
That’s why Hyalogic®’s award-winning Hyaluronic Acid products are designed to take your hydration to the next level.
Water-loving Hyaluronic Acid seeks out and binds to water. It can actually hold up to a mind-blowing 1,000 times its weight in water. As it binds, it generates a gelatinous substance which serves as a lubricant for joints, eyes, organs, skin and other areas.
Since most of us do not consume enough water every day, our body’s ability to generate Hyaluronic Acid is diminished, especially as we age. And that’s the time when our eyes, organs, joints and skin need it more than ever!
Hyalogic® provides you with a lineup of all-natural, HA-based products for skin, personal care, and even Hyaluronic Acid for your favorite pet! You no longer need settle for poorly hydrated joints, skin and organs…when there’s Hyalogic®.
