What You Need To Know About Hyaluronic Acid | RenewAlliance dba TautUSA  | Taut Collagen Supplement Drink

Sagging skin, wrinkles, and joint pain are issues that commonly plague us as we age. These problems might seem unrelated, but they can all be treated with a substance that’s naturally present in our bodies called hyaluronic acid. 

Hyaluronic acid may not be the latest, most exotic ingredient out there, but it’s a tried and true substance that’s proven to be great for the skin. It is now widely available in skin creams, serums, and beauty supplements.

Hyaluronic acid has been referred to as a fountain of youth. It is a polysaccharide (carbohydrate) found in connective tissues that helps to retain moisture and lubricates your joints. It is also found in the fluid inside your eyes, acting as a shock absorber and transporting nutrients into the eyes.

Not Only Do You Lose Collagen As You Age, You Also Lose Hyaluronic Acid
Youthful skin is pliable and resistant due to its high water content, and the key molecule that contributes to the skin’s moisture is hyaluronic acid. There is a large amount of hyaluronic acid between the skin cells, where it keeps your skin moist, firm, and supple. Babies have plump, dewy skin because they are born with a high level of hyaluronic acid. 

Unfortunately, as you age, the amount of hyaluronic acid in your skin diminishes. While you’ll never be able to make your skin look as plump and smooth as it did when you were a baby, you can restore your skin’s hyaluronic acid levels to give it a fresh and youthful appearance. Skin that has high hyaluronic acid content looks healthy, soft, and smooth. 
It Can Be Washed Off
Dermatologists have long touted the benefits of hyaluronic acid. It can even carry up to 1,000 times its weight in water. The disadvantage of hyaluronic acid is that its molecules are too large to penetrate the surface of the skin and therefore can be washed off. However, there are new anti-aging formulations that are more effective and achieve longer lasting results. The hyaluronic acid molecules in these products are at lower weights, making them capable of penetrating lower layers of the skin, such as your dermis, where collagen and hyaluronic acid resides.

It Can Minimize Your Wrinkles 

The oral intake of hyaluronic acid helps to maintain skin hydration and smooth out wrinkles without the invasiveness of hyaluronic acid injections. A study in the Scientific World Journal has shown that when hyaluronic acid is taken orally, it contributes to the increased synthesis of hyaluronic acid and moisturizes the skin. Another study carried out at Ludwig Maximilians University in Munich, Germany showed that the topical application of hyaluronic acid led to a significant improvement in skin hydration and elasticity. Furthermore, the application of low molecular weight hyaluronic acid was associated with a notable reduction in wrinkle depth.
Lube Up Your Joints With It and Get Joint Pain Relief
Not only does taking hyaluronic acid supplements make your skin look supple and smooth, it also relieves joint pain. Hyaluronic acid is a key component of synovial fluid in your joints, which provides lubrication and enables the bones in your joints to glide against one another. The results of a study from Japan show that oral hyaluronic acid supplementation may improve the symptoms of knee osteoarthritis, for example.

You’ve probably heard of good fats and bad fats, but what about good sugars and bad sugars? Sugar is a carbohydrate that is naturally found in a variety of foods. An example of good sugar is the naturally occurring sugar found in whole foods like fruits and vegetables. This type of sugar is bundled with water, fiber, vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants. Bad sugar consists of regular table sugar or the refined stuff you find in sodas, candy, ketchup, or baked goods. The average American consumes about 22 teaspoons of sugar each day . Many of us consume sugar without even realizing it because ready-made foods, even savory ones like pasta sauce and bread, often contain sugar.

Bye-bye Botox. The new beauty secret on everyone’s lips right now is collagen. There’s always been pressure to be ageless in Hollywood, but today’s celebrities are nixing the usual topical remedies and invasive treatments in favor of collagen of the consumable variety. Collagen drinks have been popular in Japan for years, but they have started generating more buzz among women in the rest of the world, including the rich and famous.

What does it take to achieve glamorous looks and a youthful complexion worthy of the red carpet? Celebrities often have access to a team of hair and makeup pros who can glam them up at a moment’s notice, but they also cling to their fair share of anti-aging beauty secrets – collagen drinks being one of them.

The likes of Drew Barrymore, Lady Gaga, and the Kardashian sisters swear by these nutrient-rich beauty drinks. Below are some of the reasons why more and more celebrities are incorporating collagen drinks into their routine.

1.   Repair, strengthen, and rejuvenate skin with collagen

Collagen is the most abundant protein in the human body. It is a major structural protein, making up about 75% of our skin. Skin with healthy collagen levels looks smooth, plump, and youthful. After the age of 25, however, collagen production slows and you start to lose approximately 1.5% of your collagen each year. The breakdown of collagen causes the skin to get thinner and leads to the formation of wrinkles.

Collagen gives the skin its strength and smooth appearance, so it’s crucial to protect and promote collagen growth. The active collagen fragments in collagen drinks are absorbed into the bloodstream and distributed throughout the body and to the skin. Skin cells called fibroblasts produce collagen. 

Collagen drinks containing hydrolyzed collagen promote collagen synthesis by stimulating these fibroblasts to produce new collagen. Clinical studies shows ingesting 10,000mg a day for a period of 8 weeks help to increase skin thickness and collagen density, reduce wrinkles. See Clinical studies.


2.   Hydrolyzed collagen can be absorbed into the bloodstream, and stay in the dermis of our skin

In their natural state, collagen molecules are too big to penetrate the skin’s surface, so the effectiveness of many topical collagen products is limited. Collagen molecules are also too large for your body to absorb when ingested. The process of hydrolysis breaks collagen down into fragments that are small enough for your digestive enzymes to break down completely. Hydrolyzed collagen consists of small peptides with low molecular weight that are easily digested, absorbed, and distributed throughout the body.

 While traditional collagen serums only penetrate the top layer of the skin, hydrolyzed collagen is more easily absorbed by the body and can thus boost collagen in the deeper layers of the skin. A 1999 study published in the peer-reviewed medical journal Arthritis & Rheumatology showed that orally administered hydrolyzed collagen was digested and more than 90% of it was absorbed within 6 hours, with measurable accumulation in the skin and cartilage.


3.   Collagen drinks are better than powder or pills

Collagen supplements come in all forms, including tablets, capsules, chewables, softgels, powders, and even marshmallows. The problem with collagen pills and powders is that they could pass through your digestive system without being broken down. Pills are also hard for some people to swallow. Moreover, they typically contain fillers, binders, stabilizers, and chelating agents, making them less potent than liquid supplements.

The secret to success with collagen supplementation is taking collagen in liquid form. Collagen drinks are absorbed into your bloodstream faster than other supplements because the collagen is already dissolved in the liquid. Collagen drinks are also a lot more convenient than pills and powders. They come ready-made in small bottles that you can easily carry in your purse, so you can drink them on the go. No messes or mixing necessary.  Additionally, collagen drinks are a lot more potent than other collagen supplements, so you can get a higher dose of collagen.


4.   The higher the potency, the better
