Foods High in Hyaluronic Acid

Also known as hyaluronan or sodium hyaluronate, hyaluronic acid is a type of carbohydrate naturally found in the body. It lubricates and hydrates the eyes and the joints and has been used as a treatment for osteoarthritis. Hyaluronic acid can be consumed either through a supplement or a diet containing foods that are natural sources of this nutrient.

Hyaluronic Acid in the Diet

Including foods high in hyaluronic acid can be an easy way to increase the amount of it in your body. Foods such as leafy greens, root vegetables and soy products contain it, while homemade broths made from animal bones, skin and connective tissues are even better sources. While not a direct source of hyaluronic acid, red wine may help increase the amount that your body produces on its own.
