Janey Loves Syno Vital from Modern Herbals


I'm a big fan of Modern Herbals and am trialling their Syno Vital Hyoloronan  supplements.      Hyaluronan is known as ‘nature’s moisturizer.   Hyaluronan could be described as the very glue which holds our body together, its a universal component of the spaces between the cells of body tissues (extracellular space)       Hyaluronan is a natural component of cartilidge and joint fluid.

Hyaluronan plays an important role in tissue hydration, lubrication, and cellular function, and holds more water than any other substance.  Hyaluronan is in the family of ‘glycosaminogylcans’, but due to it’s unique restorative ability, it will often provide improvement, where glucosamine and chondroitin have failed to do so.

It works through several mechanisms of action including restoration of more normal synovial fluid with improved viscoelasticity , effects on biosynthesis and degradation, anti-inflammatory effects, and direct analgesic effects. This is the most important effect it has for athletes.

 Hyaluronan is a special protein that is the normal lubricant in human joints. When present in a joint, even a joint with minimal or no cartilage, it can provide a cushion effect.

According to research, taken daily HA helps rebuild the “pillow” of fluid that cushions joints for fully 97%  people who try it, and experts say it may even stimulate the repair  joint cartilage, the natural padding at the end of the bones. Hyaluronan makes up 80% of the human eye, of the healthy vitreous collagen 92% is Hyaluronic Acid, whilst only 8% is chondroitin sulphate.

Hyaluronan breakdown can result in what are called floaters, clumps of protein in the vitreous body that interfere with light travelling through the eye.

Degraded HA makes the eye prone to floaters and retinal detachment.

Hyaluronan, depletes from the age of 40 years, and then by the age of  60 we lose 150mgs per day, this is when ageing accelarates.

Syno-Vital hyaluronan supplement is the higest grade HMW HA, The old adage… “we are not what we eat ! but what we absorb and assimilate” Is absolutely true, especially with Hyaluronan supplementation.

ABC news went to Yuzurihara to discover their anti-aging secret. Dr Toyosuke Komori the town Doctor had been studying this population for over 60 years. He noted that there never been a case of skin cancer in
Yuzurihara and one woman in her 90’s had flawless skin. Few people developed age-related problems such as diabetes, heart disease or cancer. Dr Komori attributed the longevity and good health of the residents of Yuzurihara to a substance called Hyaluronic acid. (ABC News Nov.2, 2000).
