We call Hyaluronic acid the unsung hero of Rixx Lotion because of its many benefits. It is a substance that is normally produced by the human body to attract and bind water at the cellular level, but needs to be augmented over the age of 50. Hyaluronic acid is a glycosaminoglycan, which is present in all connective tissues. This is the substance which helps retain moisture; Hyaluronic acid can hold up to 1000 times its weight in water.
As a protein, Hyaluronic acid is found in the skin and also in the cartilage. The synovial fluids within joints of the knee, shoulder, elbow, fingers etc all contain and need Hyaluronic acid to help with lubrication.
Hyaluronic acid is being used by all ages, taken in supplement form, as a serum for facial anti-aging and topically. In particular for those over 40 or 50, Hyaluronic acid together with witch hazel in Rixx Lotion has particularly youth- enhancing applications. As a facial lotion, it helps with the anti-aging process and tightens the skin for a more youthful look. This includes use for shaving for men, and as a healthy make up remover for women. Dr Oz has recommended Vitamin C and Hyaluronic acid, and we have found that the witch hazel and Hyaluronic acid combination in Rixx Lotion has produced excellent rejuvenation results for users as well.
Here is an excerpt from the Oz Blog:
“Hyaluranic acid is a naturally occurring polysaccharide (carbohydrate) in the human body. It’s present in large amounts in the spaces between skin cells, where it provides moisture, plumpness, firmness and suppleness to the skin.
Know how a baby’s skin always looks so deliciously dewy and pillowy? It’s because babies are born with a high level of Hyaluronic acid, which keeps their skin plump and smooth. Unfortunately, the amount of hyaluronic acid in skin diminishes with age, most significantly after age 40.”
Since our body is approximately 90% water, and we were created in the amnionic fluid, it follows that water a basic part of our evolutional make up. Hyaluronic acid is one of the natural requirements to keep our cells hydrated. Here is one way to think of it. When you buy blueberries or strawberries fresh, they last in the frige for a few days and then start getting wrinkly and having dry spots. Obviously this is lack of water. I recently took a small carton of blueberries which were getting wrinkly and put them in a cup of water in the fridge instead of in their plastic container. The next day, they were plumped back up and, due to the water absorbed back into their structure, they again looked like fresh blueberries, and in three days, they were even better and more plump, not dry and hard! This is an example of how our skin can return to a healthier, younger look and feel with the addition of hyaluronic acid available in the rich healthy Rixx Lotion.
Topically there is excellent penetration with Rixx Lotion’s dual penetrating action due to the Aloe Vera and Hyaluronic acid which allows rejuvenation from the inside out. Many people doe not realize that Aloe Vera, which is also one of the main components of Rixx Lotion, is well known for healing of burns, scars, and anything skin related because it penetrates deeply. It is also used in internal healing for digestion and balancing the PH of the body. So, along with witch hazel and Hyaluronic acid, Aloe Vera serves as natural delivery system for the hyaluronic acid to reach deep into the layers of the skin, muscles, joints and even into the bone.
Aching and Rebuilt Joints
Athletes and people of all ages often suffer from chronic residual aches and pains from surgery, arthritis and other sports injuries. Finding relief from this type of constant problem can feel like a new lease on life, creating more energy to do again what we love. Due to the ability of witch hazel to reduce swelling and inflammation, Rixx Lotion has helped many recuperate faster from knee surgery, particularly for those who want to return to sports activity.
“One of the most researched benefits of hyaluronic acid is its ability to alleviate aching joints. Its effectiveness in this area isn’t surprising since hyaluronic acid is especially concentrated in the knees, hips, and other moving joints. It is a major component of both cartilage and the synovial fluid that bathes these joints, binding to water to create a thick, gelatinous substance that lubricates and protects the cartilage.”
Hyaluranic acid has been used in the treatment of arthritis as well as many other highly inflammatory muscle conditions.
See our video on Youtube with a 78 year old woman, Lucielle, whose daughter gave her Rixx Lotion to try for her arthritic fingers. She used Rixx, and made a special trip to visit us and share her story. She was able get back to normal movement from bent stiff fingers (over a period of 6 months use)! You will be pleasantly surprised that this lotion is also non-greasy, non medicinal scent, as a matter of fact, no scent at all – just a wafting, clean essential oil freshness.
“Together, synovial fluid and cartilage act as shock absorbers that can withstand a tremendous amount of wear and tear. However, in joints afflicted by arthritis, hyaluronic acid levels are extremely low, causing the synovial fluid to become less viscous and the cartilage less cushiony.”
Think about our joints more in the fashion of a gear needing grease or oil. For our joints, the grease or oil is basically the same as synovial fluid. In this case the hyaluranic acid is the main functional component of synovial fluid. Synovial fluid is thick and viscous—because of the hyaluranic acid. Joint cartilage is thought to be the natural substance which is the smoothest and most friction-free, mainly due to the uniqueness of the hyaluronic acid.
Rixx Lotion with it’s unique combination of witch hazel and Hyaluronic acid is something you can use every day for muscles and joints, plus with the additional benefit of Aloe Vera as a natural penetrant, the delivery of the hyaluranic acid can penetrate it even into the bones with continued application over time.
