Hyaluronic Acid by Douglas Laboratories supplies 70 mg of low molecular weight HA in each capsule for joint and skin health.
Hyaluronic acid (HA) is produced by keratinocytes and is a member of a large family of glycosaminoglycans which are the main components of the extracellular matrix. It is abundant in tissues and fluids with the highest concentrations in synovial fluid, vitreous humor and skin. Studies have revealed that most HA properties depend on its molecular size. Many sources of HA consist of a high molecular weight which is too large to be absorbed in the intestines.
HyaMax® sodium hyaluronate provides a low molecular weight source of HA produced through a fermentation process. In a pharmacokinetic study, orally administered HyaMax HA was incorporated into joints, connective tissue and skin with a particular affinity for cartilaginous joints.
