Natural synthesis of hyaluronic acid: what diet for your skin?

Natural synthesis of hyaluronic acid: what diet for your skin?

Hyaluronic acid is one of the molecules essential to the health of your skin. Its production begins within fibroblasts, stellate cells present in connective tissue.

Unfortunately, as the aging process begins, its production slows down from the age of 25.

This is the reason why many people turn to supplement solutions. Certain food supplements, such as MyCollagenLift, are in fact the ideal solution to boost your hyaluronic acid production.

But how to create an anti-aging treatment with your supplementation? How to make the most of it? What diet should you adopt to support your natural synthesis of hyaluronic acid? It's time to give your hyaluronic acid a kickstart by boosting it with a treatment of natural ingredients!

Hyaluronic acid: why and how?

Hyaluronic acid is the “must have” for the young and healthy body.

Certain diseases such as osteoarthritis appear precisely because the wear and tear on the joints is too great and they do not have enough hyaluronic acid to function properly.

Likewise, the skin is more prone to the appearance of wrinkles, dry skin, tears and redness if it is lacking.

This is why it is increasingly common for people with such problems to be recommended the consumption of hyaluronic acid supplements.

However, a healthy lifestyle remains ideal for preserving the health of your skin and this requires an appropriate diet.

Choosing a diet with real results requires understanding the roles of hyaluronic acid and how it is produced.

The roles of hyaluronic acid

Generated in the heart of fibroblasts, hyaluronic acid is a natural substance produced daily by your body. It is mainly in your epidermis and in your dermis that it is concentrated (50%) and its role is plural 1 . It is used in particular to:

  • Retain water in your skin;
  • Lubricate your ligaments and joints;
  • Fill the empty spaces between your cells (in the extracellular matrix);
  • Providing a fluid environment in this matrix allowing cells to migrate throughout your body;
  • Regulate the repair process of your damaged biological tissues.

The signs of an organism well nourished in hyaluronic acid are quite obvious: the skin is more hydrated and firmer and wrinkles are reduced.

Hyaluronic acid production

Hyaluronic acid is synthesized by 3 different types of proteins: HAS (Hyaluronan Synthase):

  • HAS1;
  • HAS2;
  • HAS3;

If each of these types has a greater or lesser importance at different stages of life (HAS2 is for example vital for the good development of an embryo), they all have one thing in common: their place and their process of synthesis.

The fibroblast membrane: place of production

Hyaluronic acid is in fact always produced inside fibroblasts, close to the cell membrane.

The reason is that hyaluronic acid is most useful to the cell membrane and the space between cells (the extracellular matrix). Hyaluronic acid makes it possible to create a sufficiently fluid environment for the cells to “slide” over each other.

This is, among other things, why your muscles and skin do not tear during exercise. This is also what pushes many athletes to consume food supplements based on hyaluronic acid in order to protect their ligaments or to heal better and more quickly after an injury.

Maintaining your cell membrane

Preserving the membrane of your cells is therefore vital. It is first of all because hyaluronic acid is generated there. It is also because the sending of hyaluronic acid to the extracellular matrix passes through it.

Finally, it is because it is still through the membrane that the cell recovers the nutrients necessary for its metabolism.

To maintain your cell membranes, certain nutrients and active ingredients are more effective than others.

The Best Ingredients to Support Your Hyaluronic Acid Production

The “have-to” nutrients capable of protecting the membrane of your cells are mainly:

  • Vitamins A, D, E, K and especially C;
  • Omega-3 acids;

Why do these nutrients protect your cell membranes?

The membrane of your cells is attacked by numerous external agents and pathogens: bacteria, viruses... but also free radicals.

Free radicals are molecules that are missing one electron. Electrically unstable, they need to “cling” to other molecules in order to stabilize. This is why industrial food, for example, rich in additives which contain numerous free radicals, creates a stressful situation for the cell membrane: oxidative stress.

Conversely, molecules such as vitamin C have an “extra” electron in their chemical structure.

This is why vitamin C is able to neutralize free radicals by sharing an electron with them.

This is why we say vitamins, for example, are “antioxidants”.

What ingredients should you consume to benefit from these nutrients?

Consuming foods rich in antioxidants is therefore the best solution to protect your cell membrane.

By doing so, you will be able to improve your own production of hyaluronic acid and the process of releasing it into the extracellular matrix. You will therefore gain from eating:

  • Fruits rich in vitamins and usually consumed in Western countries (strawberries, apples, grapes, citrus fruits);
  • More exotic fruits with a higher concentration of certain vitamins (such as acerola fruit, which is much richer in vitamin C than oranges, for example);
  • Certain vegetables such as eggplant (rich in anthocyanins, powerful antioxidants);
  • Certain oils (such as fish oil rich in Omega-3 and wheat germ oil rich in vitamin E).

MyCollagenLift: the MUST for anti-aging nutricosmetics

Offering a triple action to its consumers, MyCollagenLift is a food supplement whose formula is designed to:

  • Improve your cellular regeneration;
  • Promote your tissue reconstruction;
  • Create cellular protection.

100% natural ingredients rich in antioxidants...

In order to preserve your skin's health, the anti-aging experts at MyPUREskin have developed a highly synergistic formula based on exclusively natural ingredients 2 .

MyCollagenLift is in fact an anti-aging nutricosmetic that makes the most of a combination of hyaluronic acid, various antioxidants and marine collagen bio peptides.

It contains in particular:

  • Hyaluronic acid deeply moisturizes your skin and stimulates its own production;
  • OPCs (OPto anthoCynanines - grape extracts);
  • Vitamins C and E (extracted from acerola fruit and wheat germ oil);
  • Marine collagen bio peptides to stimulate your own collagen;
  • Ceramides supporting the hydration of your skin and protecting marine collagen bio peptides;
  • Organic silicon protecting collagen and elastin and restructuring the skin;
  • SOD (SuperOxide Dismutase) which offers the best possible protection for all these ingredients and the cell membrane;
  • Zinc supporting the formula in its antioxidant effectiveness and promoting the effects of SOD.

...Stimulating your hyaluronic acid production

In addition to protecting your cells, MyCollagenLift gives a “oomph” to your hyaluronic acid production.

Thanks to its ingredients, this deeply hydrating food supplement will be the ideal companion to promote your natural production of hyaluronic acid and even your long-term health routine.
