Highly beneficial where cellular dryness is a contributing factor or side-effect of a person's condition. Other applications it may be considered for include joint and bone health, cardiovascular health, macular health, wound healing and skin, hair and nails. It is particularly helpful for rheumatoid arthritis.

Health Information

Hyaluronan (HA or hyaluronic acid) is a long chain molecule that consists of alternating units of N-acetylglucosamine and glucuronic acid. HA can absorb up to 3,000 times its weight in water and is an important hydrating agent for tissue. HA is found in virtually all tissues and fluids of the body, especially synovial (joint) fluid, the eyes vitreous fluid and in the skin. HA plays a critical role in maintaining healthy joint synovial fluid and preventing the degeneration of aging joints HA has a high daily turnover, so large amounts may be needed to maintain normal steady-state levels. HA is also a regulatory molecule influencing cell movement, phagocytosis and blood vessel formation. HA also serves as a free radical scavenger and antioxidant, and may be particularly important to protect the skin from the aging effects of excessive sunlight exposure. HA is critically important in healthy wound healing. HA stimulates DNA synthesis and fibroblast cell division, essential for healthy skin and cartilage maintenance. By the time a person reaches age 30, his or her HA becomes disorganised from skin collagen protein, compared to the interweaving of HA and skin collagen in a nine year old and is even more disconnected in the skin of a 60 year old. Given the importance of HA for healthy skin and joints, its high turnover and 'normal' decrease with aging, an effective, absorbable source of HA is highly desirable. Fortunately a bioavailable source of HA is now available. Nature's Way Hydraplenish contains the patented Biocell Collagen II complex derived from chicken cartilage. This form of cartilage contains the greatest number of naturally occurring anti-inflammatory and joint supporting proteoglycan (PG's) such as type II collagen (60-65%), chondroitin (20%), hyaluronic acid (10%), glucosamine and other proteoglycans. Each of these is found throughout the body and are required elements for healthy connective tissue. Collagen is the most abundant protein found in the body. Type II collagen proteoglycan (PG) proteins have a remarkable absorption rate of up to 70 to 90%, are an integral part of moveable joints and are essential components of cartilage and intervertebral discs. Studies have shown type II collagen to be particularly helpful for rheumatoid arthritis (RA). Although the mechanism is not fully understood, type II collagen seems to not only help strengthen cartilage, making it very useful for many other connective tissue disorders, but it also manages to 'switch off' the autoimmune response in RA. In one trial on patients with severe reactive RA, those who were taken off all other medication and received type II collagen supplementation experienced significant stabilisation and improvement. Four patients had complete resolution of the disease with no reported side effects. The patients in the placebo group continued to deteriorate. Biocell also provides significant amounts of naturally occurring chondroitin and small amounts of glucosamine, which are also constituents of the proteoglycans that are important components of healthy connective tissue including cartilage, bones and even our arteries, which suggests cardio-protective actions. This Nature's Way formula contains added MSM (methylsulphonylmethane) a naturally occurring sulphur compound essential for normal functioning of the body's growth and repair mechanisms, especially for connective such as joints and skin. MSM also has anti-inflammatory and pain relieving properties.
