Hyaluronic acid is a protective substance found in the fluid that surrounds the joints. It forms a thick gel that lubricates and protects joints and is essential for joint mobility. It acts as a shock absorber, reducing friction, facilitating movement and providing nourishment to the joints. As we get older, our bodies produce less hyaluronic acid, which exposes bones by leaving little to cushion them and provide lubrication, creating friction, inflammation, pain and potentially arthritis. Studies have shown that the hyaluronic acid content in osteoarthritic cartilage is greatly reduced and that hyaluronic acid supplementation lessens pain and improves mobility in patients with osteoarthritis.
Lysine and vitamin C are two nutrients whose role in the body is to aid in collagen and connective tissue formation. These tissues are required along with hyaluronic acid to form the fluid that protects and lubricates the joints. They also give skin its elasticity, and help keep nails and hair strong and supple. Collagen provides structure to our tissues which is important for healing wounds and scars and preventing wrinkling and sagging of the skin. Hyaluronic acid, lysine and vitamin C each contribute to collagen production and are beneficial to promote healthy, youthful skin.
AOR’s Lysine, Vitamin C and Hyaluronic Acid combines these three nutrients in one formula for relief of arthritic pain, improved mobility and collagen support. AOR’s Lysine, Vitamin C and Hyaluronic Acid is vegan and free of wheat.
