You are buying Hyaluronic Acid (also called sodium hyaluronate or HA). This version of Hyaluronic Acid is certified vegan and is produced through fermentation (which involves the use of wheat), free of any animal byproducts. HA is a natural component of connective tissue and belongs to a family of carbohydrate polymers known as glycosaminoglycans. Hyaluronic acid is found in many tissues of the body, such as skin, cartilage, and the vitreous humor. The chain length is typically 1.3 ±.2 megadaltons.
Supplementation of hyaluronic acid helps healthy support connective tissue, especially skin and joints.
PureBulk's hyaluronic acid food grade powder is standardized to contain hyaluronic acid polymers of at least 1 million molecular units.

Hyaluronic acid is a member of the family of molecules known as glycosaminoglycans. This family also includes chondroitin sulfate and some other large carbohydrate-containing molecules. Hyaluronic acid is an important component of the connective tissue that fills the spaces between cells of the skin and other tissues, and is a major ingredient of the synovial fluid that lubricates and cushions joints as well as the vitreous humor that fills the inner chamber of the eye.1
- Reliable and relatively consistent scientific data showing a substantial health benefit.
- Contradictory, insufficient, or preliminary studies suggesting a health benefit or minimal health benefit.
- For an herb, supported by traditional use but minimal or no scientific evidence. For a supplement, little scientific support.
Our proprietary “Star-Rating” system was developed to help you easily understand the amount of scientific support behind each supplement in relation to a specific health condition. While there is no way to predict whether a vitamin, mineral, or herb will successfully treat or prevent associated health conditions, our unique ratings tell you how well these supplements are understood by the medical community, and whether studies have found them to be effective for other people.
For over a decade, our team has combed through thousands of research articles published in reputable journals. To help you make educated decisions, and to better understand controversial or confusing supplements, our medical experts have digested the science into these three easy-to-follow ratings. We hope this provides you with a helpful resource to make informed decisions towards your health and well-being.
This supplement has been used in connection with the following health conditions:
|Apply five times per day for one week or twice per day for three weeks||[2 stars] |
Gels and sprays containing hyaluronic acid, an important connective tissue component in the gums, have been shown to help reduce bleeding tendency and other indicators of gingivitis.
|Apply a gel containing a partial benzyl ester derivative of hyaluronan under compression bandaging daily||[2 stars] |
A trial found that topical application of a hyaluronic acid compound with compression bandaging was significantly better than bandaging alone for healing chronic venous skin ulcers.
|1% solution for ears||[2 stars] |
Topically applied hyaluronic acid is sometimes used in skin wound dressings to improve healing.
|Refer to label instructions||[1 star] |
Injection of hyaluronic acid compounds into osteoarthritic joints, primarily the knee, has been shown to improve symptoms.

Hyaluronic 1% Solution Preparation:To prepare 12 fluid ounces of 1% (by weight) Hyaluronic Acid solution, be aware it should only be dissolved in cold water. Never attempt to dissolve Hyaluronic Acid in hot or room temperature water. You will need the following items:
- 3.56 grams Hyaluronic Acid Powder.
- 12 fluid ounces cold distilled water.
- 16 fluid ounce or larger capacity wide mouth glass or plastic water bottle with a tightly sealing lid.
- Gram weight measuring scale with an accuracy of 0.01 gram and a capacity of 100 grams.
- Pint sized glass or plastic measuring cup.
- A wide-range cooking thermometer (that can go down to freezing)
- Measure out 12 fluid ounces distilled water and pour into water bottle.
- Place in refrigerator for about 4 hours.
- Measure the temperature of water to confirm water temperature is 39°F (4°C) or less.
- Measure 3.56 grams Hyaluronic Acid powder (approximately two level teaspoons).
- Add the Hyaluronic Acid powder into the water bottle on top of the cold water.
- Seal the bottle lid tightly and shake the bottle a few times. The Hyaluronic Acid powder will not appear to dissolve but will clump together in floating white masses. This is normal.
- Place the water bottle with the Hyaluronic Acid powder and cold water into the refrigerator (but do not freeze).
- Periodically, about every two to four hours, shake the bottle and then place immediately back into refrigerator. After 4 to 8 hours you will notice that the Hyaluronic Acid clumps are turning clear and dispersing into solution. After 12 to 24 hours the Hyaluronic Acid will be completely dissolved forming a thickened and gelatinous liquid with a viscosity between maple syrup and honey, but still pourable.
Yield: For internal use a level tablespoon will net approximately 150 milligrams Hyaluronic Acid.
Hyaluronic Acid solution storage: You can store your 1% Hyaluronic Solution in the refrigerator and use it as needed. This HA solution if prepared and stored properly should keep for a minimum of 48 to 72 hours with refrigeration. You should not attempt to store your HA solution at room temperature without the addition of preservatives. The maximum safe time you can keep your HA solution refrigerated without spoilage will depend upon your ability to keep the solution sterile. Microbial contamination of your solution will cause it to spoil and lose its thickness (viscosity). If over time the solution becomes thin or loses its thickness and viscosity it has spoiled and should be discarded.
