Is Hyaluronic Acid Safe To Take?

Is hyaluronic acid safe? YES. Hyaluronan is a naturally occurring molecule in all mammals and has many useful functions with receptors throughout the body. It is found in all of our organ systems but is especially concentrated in the skin, joints, eyes, and musculoskeletal system. Because our bodies produce Hyaluronic Acid, interactions or complications are rare.

Hyaluronic Acid production in the human body begins to decrease in our 20’s, resulting in the “aging process” in the joints, skin, eyes, GI tract, etc. Hyaluronic Acid products can be taken orally, injected, used topically, or used effectively as eye drops.

Most clinical studies are performed with 100 mg to 200 mg of Hyaluronic Acid per day, though there is no maximum dosage.

If you choose to try a Hyaluronic Acid product, for the best results, take at least 100 mg per day in a prehydrated formulation (not tablet or powder form) that is “freshly” rehydrated. The Hyaluronic Acid molecules take up to 24 hours to hydrate and become fully activated, as they absorb 1000 times their weight in water. If taken as a powder, the Hyaluronic Acid may be out of your system before it becomes active. If purchased in a liquid form (prehydrated), it is believed that the Hyaluronic Acid molecule begins to “break down,” and it may not be known how long the product has been in storage, shipping, distribution and stocking. The freshest Hyaluronic Acid is rehydrated (from powder to golden liquid form) by you with bottled water and taken in its most effective presentation – Topshelf HA. Our patented, high molecular weight Hyaluronic Acid has a 3 year shelf life and provides 100 mg of Hyaluronic Acid per day at a cost of about one dollar a day.
