Lysine, Vitamin C and Hyaluronic Acid contains ingredients that help in the development and maintenance of bones and cartilage, as well as aid in collagen and connective tissue formation.
Hyaluronic acid is a protective substance found in the fluid that surrounds the joints. It forms a thick gel that lubricates and protects joints and is essential for joint mobility. In between the joints, it acts as a lubricant and shock absorber. It reduces friction, facilitates mobility and provides nourishment to the joints. As we get older, our bodies produce less and less hyaluronic acid which exposes bones by leaving little to provide lubrication, creating friction, inflammation, pain and potentially arthritis. Studies have shown that the hyaluronic acid content in osteoarthritic cartilage is greatly reduced and that hyaluronic acid supplementation lessens pain and improves mobility in patients with osteoarthritis. One of Lysine and Vitamin C’s most important roles is collagen formation. Collagen is required along with hyaluronic acid to form the fluid that protects and lubricates the joints.
Lysine, Vitamin C & Hyaluronic Acid combines these three nutrients in one formula because they work more effectively together to reduce arthritic pain and improve mobility. Hyaluronic acid, in combination with lysine and vitamin C, contributes to collagen, cartilage and connective tissue formation to provide well-rounded support for the joints. Collagen formation is also important for skin and has functional as well as cosmetic benefits. Collagen provides structure to our tissues which is important for healing wounds and scars and preventing wrinkling and sagging of the skin. Hyaluronic acid, lysine and vitamin C each contribute to collagen production and are beneficial to promote healthy, youthful skin.
In the past, hyaluronic acid has been sourced from rooster combs or from corn and wheat peptides. AOR’s Lysine, Vitamin C & Hyaluronic Acid is completely vegetarian and free of wheat and corn.
