Medical Benefits of Hyaluronic Acid

According to the Supplement Research Foundation, "HA seems to work through several mechanisms of action including restoration of more normal synovial fluid with improved viscoelasticity, effects on cartilage biosynthesis and degradation, anti-inflammatory effects, and direct analgesic effects." Hyaluronic acid supplements are also considered to be an effective treatment for conditions such as arthritis, chronic fatigue syndrome, fibromyalgia, and pain linked to joint damage. Additionally, the supplements can be useful in increasing bone density, muscle strength, mobility, alertness, sleep quality, sexual potency and wound healing.
