What is hyaluronic acid?
Hyaluronic acid is a substance occurring in the body naturally; its special properties have an effect, for example, in the skin, joints and eyes.
One of the outstanding properties of hyaluronic acid is its extremely high water binding capacity: 1 gram of hyaluronic acid can bind up to 6 litres of water. Therefore, hyaluronic acid forms an important component of the so-called extracellular matrix (proportion of the tissue between cells) in the tissues and organs of the body. It ensures that the tissue is always adequately supplied with water.
