Beautiful skin with hyaluronic acid

Did you know that back in medieval France, King Henry II’s wife, Princess Catherine, believed that if she ate chicken combs she would become beautiful? Even before that (in the 700s) Yang Guifei, one of the four beauties of ancient China, also ate chicken combs.

Chicken combs, as it turns out, contain a lot of a substance known as hyaluronic acid. Recent clinical studies show that ingesting hyaluronic acid actually can increase the moisture content of the skin. This shows up as more hydrated, and “beautiful” younger-looking skin.

Nowadays, hyaluronic acid is not just made from chicken combs, but also from microbial fermentation. It’s found in many skin supplements. It’s also used as an injectable filler to reduce wrinkles.

Let’s dive into how this ancient beauty enhancer actually works.

Hyaluronic acid in the “matrix”

Hyaluronic acid in the skin

Aging and wounded skin

Collagen and hyaluronic acid supplements

Skin benefits from ingesting hyaluronic acid (as a food and supplement)

Skin benefits from supplementing with hyaluronic acid and collagen

Skin benefits from other supplements that increase hyaluronic acid
