Hyaluronic acid is a naturally-occurring substance that's present in every tissue of the body, with highest concentration in connective tissues (such as the skin and cartilage). Hyaluronic acid assists with moisture retention, binding water molecules to cells for enhanced lubrication, cushioning and support. Hyaluronic acid helps the skin retain moisture and promotes natural rejuvenation, while also contributing to the restoration of viscoelasticity and reduction of sun-induced damage (including wrinkles) to the skin. It's also believed to support improved overall skin appearance. Look for hyaluronic acid supplements that can be taken orally in capsule form, as well as topical hyaluronic acid products in cream and lotion form, at Vitacost.com.**
