Why is Hyaluronic Acid Important?
The main functions of hyaluronic acid are as follows:
1. Improve the function of joint
2. Natural moisturizing lubricants
3, to prevent arteriosclerosis, pulse disorders and brain atrophy and other diseases.
Hyaluronic acid itself is negatively charged and occurs in most soft connective tissue of animals. Its aqueous solution is a viscoelastic fluid filled with cells and collagen fibrous space and covered with some epidermal tissue. In the animal body, its main function is to protect and lubricate cells, regulate the cell movement on this viscoelastic matrix, stabilize the collagen network structure and protect it from mechanical damage.
Because hyaluronic acid is natural lubricating and shock absorbing polymer, it is used as lubricant for tendon, tendon sheath and synovial membrane. Hyaluronic acid is widely distributed in connective tissue of human body. Hyaluronic acid, which exists in the skin, plays an important role in the metabolism of human epidermis.
The destruction or maladjustment of human hyaluronic acid can cause diseases. The decrease and destruction of hyaluronic acid in the skin can cause skin loss in the skin, wrinkle and lose elasticity and make the human epidermis aging. Therefore, hyaluronic acid is also called antiaging factor.
Hyaluronic acid HA is one of the main matrix components of the skin and dermis of human skin. Its physiological function is to make water into the space of cells and to combine with protein to form protein gel, stick the cells together, play the normal cell metabolism, keep the cell water and protect the cells from the disease. To restore skin tissue, improve wound healing and regeneration ability, reduce scar and enhance immunity. Hyaluronic acid is also a major component of the extracellular matrix of proliferating cells and migratory cells, especially in embryonic tissues. Because of its own characteristics, hyaluronic acid can keep cells apart from each other, making cells easy to migrate and proliferate and prevent cell differentiation.
During development, hyaluronic acid seems to prevent cells from differentiating prematurely before proliferating enough or migrating into place. In medicine, hyaluronic acid HA is used in non steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs, arthritis treatment, ophthalmology, and cardiac surgery, and has a unique role in the treatment of scalds, burns, frostbite, artificial skin and so on.
