SKIN NUTRITION BENEFITS
A form of hyaluronic acid, naturally found in our skin, sodium hyaluronate holds 1,000 times it’s weight in water and promotes collagen and elasticity. Because the skin naturally loses its water composition as it ages (going from 10% – 20% water to less than 10%), Sodium Hyaluronate can replace the skin’s natural Hyaluronic Acid and some of the water lost in the dermis and help fight wrinkles and other signs of aging. It smooths the appearance of wrinkles and improves skin’s texture. Sodium Hyaluronate is gentle enough for use on most skin types, including acne-prone types. It also enhances the skin’s absorption of other nourishing ingredients.
Hyaluronic Acid or sodium hyaluronate can be found in foods such as bone broth, soy-based foods (tofu, tempeh and edamame for example), starchy root vegetables (potatoes, sweet potatoes and other tubers such as jicama and Jerusalem artichoke), citrus fruits (tomatoes, oranges, grapefruits…), and leafy greens.
Also, supplements can be safely taken by most people and provide many health benefits. Supplements may prevent the natural decline of hyaluronic acid with age by giving your body extra amounts to incorporate into the skin. Doses of 120–240 mg per day for at least one month have been shown to significantly increase skin moisture and reduce dry skin in adults. Apart from its well-known skin anti-aging benefits, Hyaluronic acid helps speed up wound healing, can help relieve joint pain, and relieve dry eye in eye drops.
