Our first guest says there is a way to do this that diminishes wrinkles, prevents achy joints and keeps our heart healthy in the process. Here with more we welcome the author of the “H-A the Anti-Aging Answer,” Naturopathic Physician, Chris Meletis. Dr. Meletis discusses Hyaluronic acid, something made in our own bodies, to treat wrinkles, joints, and skin. It can be used topically and/or orally. You can treat the joints and the eyes among other things. Description: WRINKLED SKIN, PAINFUL JOINTS, HEART DISEASE These are all conditions that top the list of problems related to aging. And while there is no fountain of youth, science has uncovered one of nature’s best-kept secrets in the fight against the ravages of time. Hyaluronic acid, or HA, is a primary component of fluids that replenish, lubricate and protect various tissues of the body. In fact, so crucial is the role of this “liquid gold” in maintaining connective tissue in joints, heart, skin and eyes that its declining production with age results in many of the classic signs associated with aging. The good news is that we now can increase our body’s levels of HA through injection and oral supplementation. Mounting evidence suggests that HA supplements – particularly in the high molecular weight, bio-identical form – can provide relief from painful joints and inflammation, reduce the severity of wrinkles, and even protect the cardiovascular system. Inside this groundbreaking book, authors Chris Meletis, N.D. and Dave Rousett explain how the remarkable HA may:
- protect joints from arthritic conditions
- relieve inflammation
- reduce skin wrinkles and moisturize skin
- preserve the structure of the eye and brain
- prevent the onset of various cardiovascular conditions
- be involved in the body’s defense against cancer and much more!
So read the HA Anti-Aging Answer, and discover why hyaluronic acid may just be your most effective weapon in the fight to fend off age-related symptoms, achieve optimal health and look and feel great.
