High molecular weight hyaluronic acid for improved comfort and elasticity
This new titrated extract of the plant Boswellia serrata significantly increases the already substantial anti-inflammatory effects offered by our previous product. A much lower dose can now be taken with potentially greater effect.
Boswellia serrata is a medium-sized tree with large branches, native to India. Its resin is highly valued in Ayurveda – the extract is used in this traditional Indian system of medicine as a powerful and natural anti-inflammatory. It wasn’t until the 20th century, however, that it began attracting the interest of doctors and therapists, and it is now available to buy in dietary supplement form. As well as being a natural anti-inflammatory, it has the advantage of causing no gastrointestinal side-effects, thus protecting the gastric mucosa from ulcers.
Over the past few years, hyaluronic acid has received significant attention from both the medical press and the cosmetics sector. It’s a polysaccharide macromolecule from the glycosaminoglycan family which is abundant in the skin and synovial fluid (the viscous fluid surrounding our joints). Under normal conditions, the human body contains around 12g.
It’s produced by cells called chondrocytes and synoviocytes to increase the viscosity of synovial fluid, which improves lubrication of the joints. It also helps maintain good hydration in the skin by capturing water and retaining it in the skin’s deeper layers (1). In some cases, it also reduces the concentration of inflammatory mediators and activity of immune cells.
The viscosity of the gel depends on the chain length of the hyaluronic acid. The higher its molecular weight, the greater the molecule’s capacity for absorbing water. Therefore, with ...
