Hyaluron to drink – Does this help to young fresh skin?
True beauty comes from within and this does not only mean the advantages of character. The fact that a healthy diet, rich in Micronutrients and vegetable fibers, has a positive effect on health and appearance, there is no question. – But how useful are actually dietary supplements, beauty pills and miracle tinctures of all kinds?
Do such products actually have a demonstrable effect, or is it just marsupialism?
Very often the products advertised with all kinds of full-bodied promises are Miracle cure not quite cheap and, according to the manufacturer, the success only becomes apparent many weeks after taking it. On the one hand, this is not surprising – after all, our cells do not renew themselves overnight, but take weeks to do so. On the other hand, a certain skepticism with regard to the trends in nutritional supplements is quite appropriate.
Most tinctures that promise eternal youth or at least a ten-year younger appearance have quickly disappeared from the market. Which would certainly not be the case if the promised effect had also occurred. At present, one focus of the beauty industry is on Hyaluronic acid in liquid form, which is said to provide a fresh, young appearance.
Does hyaluronic acid also help when taken orally?
Hyaluronic acid is a important component of the connective tissue. The substance is characterized above all by the fact that it is able to store many times its own volume of water.
In aesthetic medicine, hyaluronic acid has been used successfully for decades as a filler to correct expression lines on the face.
In particular the Nasolabial folds between the nose and the corners of the mouth are often filled with hyaluronic acid.
Whether the oral intake in the form of tablets, tinctures or drinks has a positive effect on appearance, is strongly disputed among experts. Some physicians are firmly convinced that these products have no effect at all because the hyaluronan cannot be broken down in the gastrointestinal tract and therefore cannot be absorbed. Until about 2011, all studies probably concluded that the peroral application of hyaluronic acid is pointless.
New study promises more moist skin
However, the substance can now be produced with a molecular weight that allows it to be absorbed through the lymphatic system. In its 19/2015 issue, the Apothekerzeitung reported on studies showing that orally absorbed hyaluron to a Improvement of skin hydration leads. However, an effect could only be observed after several weeks of use.
Even if the hyaluronic drinks that are so heavily advertised on social media in particular are not completely useless, however, their effect is in no way comparable to that of a hyaluroninjection. Those who are afraid of injections and hope to be able to simply drink or swallow the wrinkle filler instead will be disappointed.
