Hyaluronic acid can be used for a variety of reasons such as to help with joint pain from osteoarthritis, healing wounds, or moisturizing the skin and eyes. At Vitae Healthcare Center in Greenwich, CT Dr. Stec and her staff of functional medicine doctors can clear up any questions you have and help you on your way to a more functional life with hyaluronic acid.
Hyaluronic acid is a clear, gooey substance that is produced by our bodies. Normally it is produced in small amounts and helps our skin maintain moisture and our joints to stay lubricated. The aging process, or damaged by the sun, can reduce your body’s output of this substance in certain areas like your skin.
Hyaluronic acid can be used as an injection to help people who are suffering from joint pain associated with osteoarthritis, for healing, and for moisturizing excessively dry areas. Pain associated with osteoarthritis is often due to a lack of lubrication on the affected joints. It has antibacterial properties as well and it can be applied to an open wound to hasten the healing process. Dr. Stec and her functional medicine doctors at Vitae Healthcare Center in Greenwich, CT can set you up with a consultation to see if hyaluronic acid is the right solution for you.
Hyaluronic Acid is a naturally occurring substance in our bodies so it is generally safe to supplement. The acid signals to the body that more blood vessels are needed and it reduces inflammation. Studies have been done and observed no negative side effects although it has not been thoroughly tested on pregnant and breastfeeding women so caution should be practiced. If you have any further questions about how hyaluronic acid can work for you, call Dr. Stec in Greenwich, CT.
