Hyaluronic Acid (Sodium Hyaluronate) Powder
Hyaluronic Acid is a necessary component of connective tissue and belongs to a protein family called Glycosaminoglycans. They help the body retain water when it needs it and keep the body moisturized which in turn aids the transport of molecules at a microscopic level all throughout the body.
The chief function that Hyaluronic Acid exists for, is to lubricate the body and act as a cushion against joint pressure by fortifying the cartilage that is present there. Far from being limited to the joints though, the lubricating power of Hyaluronic Acid is needed for the appropriate function of the heart; the tissue beneath the outer layer of skin where it is needed to keep these tissues connected together, and the eyes. And finally, HA possesses antioxidant properties, assisting in the body's ability to protect itself from harmful free radicals. The appearance of the actual Hyaluronic Acid supplement is as a white powder that has no odor.
Health Benefits Provided By Hyaluronic Acid
Hyaluronic Acid can be taken orally in order to keep joints healthy and strong, or it can be applied directly to the skin as a topical moisturizer. It is found in a wide selection of different beauty products meant for the skin, and in these solutions it is meant to help improve skin elasticity on top of moisturizing the areas that it is applied to. It can also be found in some brands of makeup.

Hyaluronic Acid is a great supplement to take orally in order to improve the health of various connective tissues in the body as well as joint health. It may also be applied directly to the skin in order to moisturize. For topical use, concentrations of Hyaluronic Acid of 1% and below are approved, but concentrations above 1% are not to be used. Hyaluronic Acid must be mixed in cold water only. It is not easily soluble in this cold water, but there are directions for making an easily consumable supplement here.
The following items are required for the preparation of a Hyaluronic Acid solution:
An accurate gram measuring scale that can measure up to two gram decimal spaces and has a capacity of 100 grams
3.56g Hyaluronic Acid supplement
12 fl oz distilled water
A resealable water bottle with a capacity of at least 16 fl oz and a tight-fitting seal
A large cooking thermometer that can measure freezing temperatures
First measure out 12 fl oz of the distilled water. Pour into water bottle, seal and refrigerate for at least 4 hours. Using the thermometer, make sure that the water has reached a temperature at or below 39 degrees Fahrenheit. Pour the Hyaluronic Acid powder on top of the cold water, seal the lid and shake vigorously for a few seconds. Do not expect the Hyaluronic Acid powder to dissolve. It does not dissolve in cold water and doing this will cause clumps to form. This is normal.
Put the Hyaluronic Acid powder mix in the refrigerator once more, but do not allow the solution to freeze. Once the Hyaluronic Acid powder has been in the refrigerator for about 4 to 8 hours, the powder will begin to disperse throughout the water. Given up to 12 or 24 hours, the Hyaluronic Acid will have dissolved completely into the water and the viscosity of the resulting liquid will be somewhat similar to honey or synthetic maple syrup. You may now consume the solution. For purposes of internal use, the yield of actual Hyaluronic Acid per tablespoon of this mixture is about 150mg.
If the Hyaluronic Acid solution is prepared correctly, it can be stored in the refrigerator for up to 30 days. If the solution is watery, however, it should be discarded and replaced with a new batch. Hyaluronic Acid may not be stored at room temperature unless preservatives are added to prevent bacterial contamination of the solution.
Preservatives that can improve the integrity of the overall solution include Ascorbic Acid and DMAE Bitartrate. For every 12 fl oz of distilled water, 6 grams of Ascorbic Acid (Vitamin C) and 3 grams of DMAE Bitartrate should be added while the water is still at room temperature. Once these have both dissolved in the water, it is okay to chill the water in the refrigerator to 39 degrees Fahrenheit and then follow the rest of the above instructions as normal. If consumed internally, this new solution will yield 150mg Hyaluronic Acid, 250mg Ascorbic Acid and 125mg DMAE Bitartrate per tablespoon.
