 Hyaluronic Acid (HA): Recommended Dosage

The evidence to date seems to show benefits from taking supplemental HA for anyone with joint problems, either from age or injury, as well as keeping the skin in good condition. This is most likely to have greatest benefit for people with skin conditions or as the skin ages.

The recommended dosage for HA is not reliably established for oral supplements, due to the range of different weight available and the lack of research into the effective dosage. However, recommended dosages usually range from 20-120mg, with some recommendations of 200mg, though it is not known whether low weight HA requires a smaller dosage due to it's higher absorption rate.

The HA product supplied by Forever Living Products comes with a recommended dosage providing 160mg/day, which seems to be towards the upper level of dosage and should therefore be plenty. It is also well below any possible toxic levels, and although any negative effects of HA supplementation have not been fully investigated, all possible effects seem to be way above the dosage provided by this supplement and should be considered safe.

Positive effects of HA have been observed in as little as 2 weeks, though the general time frame is 2 months or more, depending on the users condition.

Note: HA is in most cases derived from animal sources, usually chicken cartilage. If you are not able to take this for any reason, there are now some non-animal stabilized hyaluronic acid (NASHA), which uses HA produced by bacteria.
