Hyaluronic Acid: How it helps
- Hyaluronic acid supplements are very helpful for people suffering from osteoarthritis, a type of degenerative joint disease caused by wear and tear on the joints over time.
- Taking 80–200 mg daily for at least two months has been shown to significantly reduce knee pain in people with osteoarthritis, especially those between the ages of 40 and 70 years old
- New research shows hyaluronic acid supplements may help reduce symptoms of acid reflux. When acid reflux occurs, the contents of the stomach are regurgitated up into the throat, causing pain and damage to the lining of the esophagus. Hyaluronic acid may help soothe the damaged lining of the esophagus and speed up the recovery process. One test-tube study found that applying a mixture of hyaluronic acid and chondroitin sulfate to acid-damaged throat tissue helped it heal much faster than when no treatment was used (29Trusted Source). Human studies have also shown benefits. One study found that taking a hyaluronic acid and chondroitin sulfate supplement along with an acid-reducing medication decreased reflux symptoms 60% more than taking acid-reducing medication alone (30Trusted Source). A second study showed that the same type of supplement was five times more effective at reducing acid reflux symptoms than a placebo
