What is Hyal-Flex™?
Hyal-Flex™ contains sodium hyaluronate (HA or Hyaluronic Acid). Advanced fermentation technology and purification processes are used to obtain Hyaluronic Acid of 99% or greater purity. Hyaluronic Acid plays an important role for in mechanical and transport properties in the body. For example, HA gives elasticity to joints and vertebrate disks.*
HA is also a key constituent in the vitreous body of the eye. In a less direct efficacy HA assists in the regulation of biological functions through association with major intercellular components such as collagen, fibronectin, and elastin.*
Hyal-Flex™ has better properties in water absorption and retention than other existing humectants.
Hyaluronic Acid is a polysaccharide that has been termed a “connective tissue polysaccharide,” “mucopolysaccharide,” and “glucosaminoglycan.” Hyal-Flex™ has also been observed to have physiological functions that protect cell structures and defend against bacterial infections.*
Hyal-Flex™ (Dietary Supplement) Food Grade
Like its cosmetic-grade cousin, food-grade Hyal-Flex™ is produced by an advanced fermentation and purification process, optimally designed to obtain the highest quality HA.
Some of the internal benefits of Hyal-Flex™ include:*
- Maintain healthy bones and joints
- Care for Orthopedic Disease (Osteoarthritis)
- Care for wound healing
- Bone regeneration
- Care for ophthalmology
Hyaluronic Acid is a key component in synovial fluid, which lubricates the joints.* One of the most important roles played by sodium hyaluronate in the synovial fluid is to increase viscosity and reduce friction between articular surfaces. Fibroblastic synoviocytes synthesize sodium hyaluronate which then releases into the synovial fluid.
Hyal-Flex™ Cosmetic Grade
Hyal-Flex™ cosmetic grade is produced from streptococcus zooepidemicus, which is a non-hemolytic bacterial strain. Cosmetic-grade Hyal-Flex™ is free of contaminants such as glycosaminoglycans and proteins of animal origin. Vesta Ingredients’ bacterial fermentation yields an HA product that has both high molecular weight and high purity. The high molecular weight of the cosmetic-grade Hyal-Flex™ allows sustained moisturizing effects by forming a ciscoelastic film that protects the skin. Hyal-Flex™ has no hemolytic activity.
Some of the topical applications of Hyal-Flex™ include:
- Care for moisturizing in skin
- Skin Care
- Body Lotions
- Liposome Gels
- Eye contour creams/gels
- Hair Care Products
- After-sun lotions
