5 Foods that Naturally Boost Hyaluronic Acid
The month of January has many people feeling cold, dry and tired but that doesn’t have to be you! Keeping up with your nutrition is essential if you want to look and feel energized during these cold winter months. Fueling your body with the proper nutrition will boost your skin health, immune system and increase your mobility and joint movement. Hyaluronic Acid plays a major role when it comes to plumpy, dewy skin as well as easy joint mobility. Here are 5 foods that naturally boost the production of Hyaluronic Acid within your body to keep skin glowing and keep your body moving comfortably.
1. Sweet Potatoes
These delicious and nutritious vegetables are packed with fiber, vitamin A, vitamin C and plenty of magnesium which enables your body to produce hyaluronic acid more efficiently. The variety of antioxidants these potatoes include, prevent oxidative damage and help protect skin from sun damage, air pollution and harmful chemicals.
These sweet and citrus fruits contain a flavonoid called Naringenin which blocks the activity of hyaluronidase (an enzyme that breaks down hyaluronic acids in the body). Consuming more oranges and citrus fruits will allow you to maintain healthy levels of hyaluronic acid in your body leading to supple, plumpy skin.
3. Bone Broth
Bone broth is made by simmering bones and connective tissues of animals in liquid for 12-48 hours. This broth turns out to be flavorful and full of hyaluronic acid, protein and amino acids needed for new collagen production.
Along with many other green leafy vegetables, Kale is packed with nutrients such as fiber, vitamin A, vitamin K, calcium, copper and manganese. These nutrients contribute to healthy production of hyaluronic acid within the body.
These nuts are filled with vitamin E and magnesium. Two nutrients needed in order to combat oxidative stress, speed up healing time, protect against skin damage and you guessed it…increase hyaluronic acid production.
Consuming these foods on a daily basis will help you glow like the angel you are! And if you have a difficult time switching up your diet or find it hard to eat an array of fruits and veggies, you can find all of these nutrients along with hyaluronic acid in our Skin Supplements.
