 IS THERE SUCH A THING AS A 'YOUTH' SERUM?

     Hello, Dyan here (The Health Coach Is In) to talk about a little ol' compound you most likely have heard of that I find extremely helpful in my quest for a healthier life.

     So I'd like to share with you, this simple compound, in hopes that you may also find it helpful in your pursuit, for your healthier life.

What is this little ol' compound?

PURE HYALURONIC ACID or (HA).

     Hyaluronic acid is a natural substance found in almost every cell in our body, but it's mostly concentrated in our skin, cartilage, joints, eyes and other connective tissues throughout our system.

     It holds a 1,000 times its weight in water and keeps our eyes and joints lubricated and our skin smooth, plumped and soft.

INTERESTED?

THEN TAKE A LOOK AT HOW IT ALL BEGAN:

     Hyaluronic acid was first discovered in the body of a cow's eye in 1934 by Dr. Karl Meyer, a German Biochemist. While performing his experiments, he learned that HA was a substance that helped the eye retain its shape and moisture, and speculated that it may have other therapeutic uses, as well.

     Then in the 1940's, a Hungarian Scientist found that rooster combs (the red mohawks) were rich in hyaluronic acid. And since combs were more abundant compared to cow's eyes, they became the favored source of hyaluronic acid.

     As time went on, other researchers found that bacteria strains such as Agrobacterium, Bacillus and Lactococcus (in their purified forms) could also be used to produce hyaluronic acid.

     And in 1989 Biochemists discovered that they too could extract a healthy dose of HA from fermented grass yeast. 

     Which brings us to today, where hyaluronic acid is either taken from bacteria strains, fermented grass yeast, rooster combs and even plant extracts, but rarely anymore from a cow's eye.

FOR YOUR JOINTS

     

     As we grow older, our body's ability to produce Hyaluronic Acid decreases, causing less lubrication for our joints, eyes and skin. Hyaluronic acid has been the go-to program for a lot of people suffering with osteoarthritis.

     HA has been found in many different studies to ease the symptoms of this inflammatory condition, along with preventing joint pain from starting in the first place.

FOR YOUR EYES

     

     In a study published in the journal of the American Academy of Optometry, researchers found that hyaluronic acid had great potential to help alleviate dry eyes, even in severe cases and, in addition, give (a lot) of relief to contact wearers.

FOR YOUR SKIN

               

     Hyaluronic Acid has been found to keep our skin moist and make it smooth, plump and tighter. That's why you see so many injections, serums and moisturizers containing Hyaluronic Acid and why dermatologist's and plastic surgeons like to use it in their office.

     A FEW LITTLE HINTS:

     Make sure when you use a pure HA serum on your skin that your skin is damp when you apply it. HA serums won't absorb if your skin is not damp or even a little wet. HA needs to absorb through moisture (like water) to hydrate and plump.

     And you don't need to thoroughly rub it in for it to absorb. Just spread it evenly over your skin and let it absorb naturally.

     And you don't need a lot either, just 1-2 drops or pumps will do. Just play around with what works best for you.

But besides injections, serums and even creams, there is another way to help boost your bodies HA and that is through your DIET.

     Foods that are a good source of HA are grass-fed meats, like bison & lean beef, pork, pasture-raised lamb, turkey or chicken, which all contain high levels of HA, not to mention organic Bone Broth, also a great source of HA.

SEE MY POST:

Climb aboard the Bone Broth train.

     Then there are organic potatoes (regular & sweet) and vitamin C rich foods, like red, yellow and orange bell peppers and citrus fruits that have higher levels of HA.

     In addition, magnesium rich foods will further boost the HA in your body, such as bananas, nuts & seeds, avocados, dark chocolate, low fat yogurt, spinach, plus the herbs cilantro and parsley.

     Another fab way to get your Hylauronic Acid is in a supplement form (80-100mgs, 1 capsule daily) if not on medications, breast feeding or pregnant.

     I do both (diet & supplements), but I'm not on medications, pregnant or breast feeding, but if you are, consult with your doctor before you supplement with Hyaluronic Acid, for HA can interfere with some medications. Not very many meds, but a few, so check with your doc. 

AND MAKE SURE TO USE HYALURONIC ACIDS MADE FROM HIGH-QUALITY SOURCES.

DIET & SUPPLEMENTS:

Grass-fed beef, pasture-raised chicken, turkey, organic veggies. And take your supplement on an empty stomach.

SERUMS & CREAMS:

No parabens, sulfites, artificial ingredients and coloring's. They should contain a pure solution of 1-2% HA and HA should be the 2nd or 3rd ingredient.

LABS:

Clean, pure and non-pathogenic bacteria/yeast labs.

IT WILL BE WORTH THE EXTRA MONEY YOU PAY.

     So if you want to help Mother Nature along and keep your joints moving smoothly, your eyes moist and healthy and your skin youthful and plump, give Hyaluronic Acid a try and add it to your everyday diet, your everyday beauty and your everyday healthy life.

     Because frankly, I think you'll find that HYALURONIC ACID (through diet, supplements and pure HA serums) just may be an effective alternative to painful, expensive injections.

With Love & Light,

Dyan, NE CHHC
