What is Hyaluronic Acid?
Hyaluronic acid is a substance that is naturally present in the human & animal body. It is found in the highest concentrations in fluids of the eyes and joints. In humans, the amount in the body is 50% less than optimal by age 40. This is why it is a key ingredient in Recovery Extra Strength. HA is safe as it is naturally occurring in the body and is especially beneficial as we age or if we are under a heavy work load / prone to injury.
Why add Vitamin C?
Vitamin C is well known for it’s immune benefits but did you know it is essential in the production of collagen (the main structural protein found in skin and other connective tissues)? It is widely used in purified form for cosmetic surgical treatments. Vitamin C is also a key ingredient in Recovery. We use the best available human grade ascorbic acid form.
