Hyaluronic acid is a naturally occurring substance in the human body, beneficial for our body (bones and joints) and skin. It is associated with anti-aging and skin moisturizing abilities, so that’s why you often see this as one of the ingredients in skin care products. Still, because hyaluronic acid has pretty large molecules and this makes it harder to absorb when applied topically, it’s more common to see sodium hyaluronate. Sodium hyaluronate is a sodium salt of the hyaluronic acid and has much smaller molecules that are easier for skin to absorb and hold moisture much more effectively. However, we are not talking about sodium hyaluronate today, we are talking about hyaluronic acid – in particular, Viridian Hyaluronic Acid vegetarian supplement (30 caps for approx $22/£14.40, available in 90 caps) and what good it can do to us.
I have never tried a supplement like this, so I was very intrigued. It comes in a dark glass jar, so it’s great to store. I absolutely adore that small detail, a heart, on its black lid – makes it super cute. The capsules are 100% vegetarian, made from vegetarian cellulose. Hyaluronic acid is mixed in a base of spirulina, bilberry and alfalfa. It’s recommended to take one to three capsules daily with food and because I wanted fast and noticeable results and to finish the bottle faster, of course, I took three capsules per day. The capsules are medium-sized and easy to swallow.
I am actually hooked on natural vitamins at the moment (you can read about my recent choices) just because after I started taking them regularly, I have so much more energy, my anxiety is milder and my skin is less dry – what’s not to love? I was taking HUM Red Carpet at the same time as Viridian Hyaluronic Acid and, I must say, the mix worked really well. You know that it’s pretty hard to describe the results of any supplement because it isn’t always easy to tell whether the benefits you feel are from the supplement or related to anything else. I didn’t notice any changes regarding my wrinkles, but I believe these supplements played a big part in my overall health and that my skin is in a much better condition at the moment.
