Our external appearance is the most obvious target for anti aging practices, although as shown here, the anti-aging benefits of Hyaluronic acid go much deeper than that.
OUR SKIN- The crucial nature of hyaluronic acid is documented in a comprehensive NIH review entitled,

Hyaluronic acid: A key molecule in skin aging

“The most dramatic histochemical change observed in aging skin is the marked disappearance of epidermal Hyaluronic Acid.” https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC3583886/
Good hydration and provision of hyaluronic acid may be crucial to maintaining hydration of the skins’ dermal layer, and provide an anti-aging benefit 
With aging a steady loss of collagen in the skin occurs, and hyaluronic acid can help retard that effect.
But enough about the skin- what else can hyaluronic acid do for us ?

According to WEBMD, Hyaluronic acid injections, called viscosupplementation, help knee osteoarthritis  which is characterized by a loss of cartilage, which is what cushions the joints. These injections of hyaluronic acid in a gel-like form can provide relief of pain, but  the benefits might take a number of shots to achieve significant results which may last from 6 months to a year. It is best employed

with mild to moderate arthritis, not severe arthritis.

Hyaluronic Acid May Help Acid Reflux.

Pain occurs when stomach acid comes back up into the esophagus. Known by the acronym GERD (gastroesophageal reflux disease).  Hyaluronic acid may help with the healing of the lining of the tissues affected by GERD.

One research study showed that people who took hyaluronic acid when they took acid-reflux medication reduced their GERD symptoms. Studies are ongoing to further investigate this effect.

Hyaluronic Acid for Hair

Hyaluronic acid is widely used as an ingredient in hair shampoos and conditioners, and in hair sprays. This helps the hair retain moisture, and reportedly revitalizes hair with subjects reporting an improvement in hair texture, less frizziness, and they notice benefits to the scalp as well.

Benefits of Hyaluronic Acid for Skin

Hyaluronic acid is used as a dermal filler injected into the face as a cosmetic treatment. It has become a popular skin care treatment. possibly working anti-aging agent with subjective improvement in wrinkling and fullness of the face.

The products that use hyaluronic acid claim that its gels, creams, and serums fight wrinkling  and aging, making your face look better overall. The scientific evidence for it seems to show that it helps your skin to make more collagen and elastin, it keeps your skin moisturized, and those mechanisms together improves elasticity of the skin.

Food sources of hyaluronic acid

Bone broth is a major food source of hyaluronic acid, as hyaluronic acid is present in the bone marrow of meat. You can also eat foods that have plant-based estrogen called phytoestrogen. Research shows that phytoestrogens can increase the production of hyaluronic acid in your body. These foods include:

  • Sweet potatoes , Beans, Soybeans, Grains, Peanuts, Chickpeas, Garlic, Onions
  • Fruits : apples, grapes, plums, pears, and berries
  • Vegetables: sprouts, cabbage, spinach, and hops
  • Black tea and green tea

Potential Benefits of Hyaluronic Acid for Bladder Pain

Interstitial cystitis also called painful bladder syndrome, is characterized by having an inflamed and irritated bladder  causing sensitivity and pain. Intravesical hyaluronic acid, is a treatment inserted directly into the bladder, which may lessen the urge to urinate and decrease the associated.

The results of one study showed that after 3 months of treatment with hyaluronic acid the urgency to urinate went down 40%. And overall pain was decreased by approximately 30%, lessening the need for pain medication.


Hyaluronic acid is available by prescription in the following forms:

  • By injection: Hyaluronic acid injections into your joints can relieve pain caused by arthritis. It’s also commonly used with medications given in an IV. Healthcare providers may prescribe it off-label to treat bladder pain (such as pain caused by interstitial cystitis).
  • Although anyone can suffer from this condition those that are at most risk are:Women age 30 or older. Those with another disorder characterized by chronic pain .    symptoms of interstitial cystitis/bladder pain syndrome include:

    • Pain in your bladder region with pressure seen when your bladder is filling up.
    • Urinary urgency and frequency.
    • Only urinating a small amount each time.

    These symptoms are experienced from mild to severe. They may appear occasional or may be continuous.

  • Why people get Interstitial Cystitis is not completely understand what causes it. It is suspected that it may be related to ;

 In treatment as an IV, hyaluronic acid is a component of Regenerative Medicine umbilically derived human “stem cell” treatment. 

BIO X STEM- Human Cell and Tissue Products

SUPPORTING REPAIR AND HEALING HylaJel and Hyla Pure are cryogenically preserved human birth tissue allografts derived from the umbilical cord. These structural tissues contain extracellular matrix, such as elastin, Hylauronan, (hyaluronic acid) collagen fibers, and fibronectin, and naturally occurring tissue components such as growth factors, cytokines, and nanoparticles. BioXstem’s HCT/Ps are processed from bio-ethically donated human birth tissue from healthy, consenting mothers in the United States who have passed a comprehensive medical background check, blood screenings and had full term, live C-Section births.

HYALURONAN  Hyaluronic Acid. Being increasingly recognized as helpful in the treatment of the joints, skin, hair, acid reflux and bladder pain from cystitis. Hyaluronic acid injection is used to treat knee pain caused by osteoarthritis and various joint, ligament and tendon injuries.

Hyaluronic acid is similar to a substance that occurs naturally in the joints. It works by acting like a lubricant and shock absorber in the joints and helps the joints to work properly.

COLLAGEN Collagen accounts for 30% of your body’s protein. It provides structure, support or strength to your skin, muscles, bones and connective tissues.

FRIBRONECTIN Fibronectin (FN) is a ubiquitous and essential component of the extracellular matrix (ECM). It functions both as a regulator of cellular processes and an important scaffolding protein to maintain and direct tissue organization and ECM composition.
During tissue repair, the body acts in a series of tightly regulated steps to rapidly reconstitute damaged tissue.

GROWTH FACTORS Essential for tissue repair and healing

CYTOKINES another crucial element in the healing and regrowth of tissues

NANOPARTICLES Increasingly recognized as being able to help a variety of maladies. These nanoparticles-tiny in size -can overcome biological barriers and enhance the delivery of therapy to the target site of injury and needed healing.

As a safe and uncomplicated treatment, an IV infusion of this regenerative material may be a worthwhile attempt to treat an often intractable condition.
