What’s Hyaluronic acid?
Hyaluronic acid is a water-loving molecule that it found naturally in the skin, joints and eyes. It’s your body’s own hydrating molecule, often referred to as nature’s moisturiser. Think of a new born baby’s skin; it is soft, plump and dewy (full of hyaluronic acid!) As we age the level of HA diminishes, this can be due to many factors such as free radical damage from the sun, environmental pollution and of course dietary choices we make. So how can we stop the ageing process? We can’t, but we sure can slow it down! Think intense hydration, increasing production of collagen and preventing loss of elasticity of your skin.
Are there different types of Hyaluronic acid? How can I know the best for my needs?
Did you know that not all hyaluronic acid is the same? There is food grade and cosmetic grade, low and high molecular weight, from animal source to non-animal source. Unfortunately very few brands advertise these factors publically. Usually they choose the hyaluronic acid based on cost without taking into consideration its effectiveness and suitability for what the person actually needs. It is truly important to find out as much information about the products you consume. Sometimes all is not what it seems!
Terranova was the first supplement company in Europe to work with Full-Spectrum Molecular Weight Hyaluronic Acid. What this means is not quite as complicated as it sounds… Products containing HA on the market normally contain HA of a specific molecular weight. The size of the HA molecule defines which tissues within the body will use the different molecules, for example low molecular weight HA is better suited for skin tissue and higher molecular weight is better suited for connective tissue in joints. The individual needs vary greatly, with most people needing the full spectrum. So why not take a Hyaluronic acid supplement that has low, medium, high and everything in between! That’s where Terranova Full-Spectrum Hyaluronic Acid jumps above and beyond. By using a new technological approach, ExceptionHYAL®Star delivers this unique approach to ensure that we get the most out of taking this amazing supplement. Based on a collection of molecular sizes, ExceptionHYAL®Star does not focus on a specific molecular weight but rather a range of molecules working in synergy, just as it occurs in the whole body.
