Hyaluronic Acid: Bone Loss and Rebuilding Heathy Bone Tissue

bone loss

Peak bone mass (or bone density) is reached around age 30. After age 30, bone resorption slowly begins to exceed new bone formation. This leads to bone loss.

As we all age, we face the threat of bone loss – often leading to hip fractures and rapidly-declining health. In the article “Everything You Always Wanted to Know About Hyaluronic Acid for Bones and Skin,”1 author Vivian Goldschmidt explores the role of hyaluronic acid in replenishing bone tissue as we age:

“Both the building and breaking down of hyaluronic acid are important. As we age, however, hyaluronic acid synthesis begins to slow down. Hyaluronic acid is found in nearly every human cell. In the synovial joints, hyaluronic acid assists in producing a viscous fluid that fills the synovial sac, lubricating the joint.”

“Hyaluronic acid’s various roles in bone tissue include the formation of hyaline cartilage, the thick, cushiony substance that covers the ends of bones such as the femur and humerus. This cartilage is also found on the end of your nose, in your larynx and trachea, and between the sternum and ribs. It greatly resists everyday wear and stress, which is why it’s sometimes called the “gristle” cartilage. And hyaluronic acid forms its base.”

Recent clinical research2 clearly identifies hyaluronic acid as a key factor in healthy bone remodeling. The data indicates that, just as building new muscle tissue requires the breaking down of muscle fibers first, removal of old bone is essential so it can be replaced with young and healthy bone. And just as hyaluronic acid boosts the restoration of muscle fibers, it also facilitates the natural process of breaking down old bone tissue, as well as the creation of healthy bone tissue at the cellular level.

Goldschmidt points out: “You may be hesitant to increase levels of a substance that increases the tearing down of bone. But actually, the opposite is true. Removal of old bone is essential so it can be replaced with young and healthy bone. Clearly, aiding your body in the synthesis of hyaluronic acid is merely supporting an essential natural process.”1

Could the body’s age-related decrease in hyaluronic acid synthesis account, in part, for the onset of bone loss? The research shows that hyaluronic acid is a factor in the restoration of low bone density that often coincides with age. For all of us – especially women who are far likelier to suffer the effects of bone density breakdown – oral liquid hyaluronic offers a naturally-occurring supplement that helps create healthy, new bone tissue as we age.

Why wait for the hip or other fractures that can occur as a result of a loss in bone density? Start your prevention program today.
