Thanks for the post on the HA supplements! I wonder if it will also help with dry skin generally? Any experience?

I've noticed this is in some moisturizers now a days . .

So excited to grab my bottle from walgreens! Very Happy

HA has done WONDERS for my dry skin! Since I've been taking it, my skin has been supple and, well, non-dry. I'm surprised that more people don't use it.

By the way -- I'm in the UK right now, and I'm wondering where I can buy HA around here? I've looked in Superdrug, Boots, etc. and don't see any. Question

Holland And Barrett do Hyaluronic Acid with Chondroitin and Vitamin C (50, 100 and 30mg respectively), it's on offer now and again. They do HA in 30mg tablets.

They have 100mg capsules on ebay, if that helps.

I'd love to know where I can get a lip pump in the UK a bit cheaper too Confused

Thanks! I checked at Holland & Barrett in Fareham, and BAM! HA, just like you said. Yay!! Very Happy

I've never seen the lip pump actually being sold, in a store. I've only ever seen them online. www.igia.com has a cheap one, but there are all sorts of problems with their website.

i have been using 100 mg tablets for about a week and noticed a slight difference to my lips but none to my skin

about 3 nights ago i doubled my dose and have been taking 200 mg ha with collagen and lips are at least 1/3 bigger, plus my skin looks more plumped and face generally lifted and younger

i dont think higher doses are harmful so thats always worth a try for more results

HI, Guys, Yep, I'm crazy but, I use a "Dirt Devil" on my lips. Shock I've only done it a few times but, it works! The effect doesn't last long but, maybe with time it will. Question I use HA tablets 50mg and want to try collagen tablets from Wal-Mart mentioned above.
Thank you, Everyone Very Happy

Hi! I ordered some restylane from Canada but it is going to take forever to get here. I have this event at my old High School. I used to have a lip pump but I wore it out! LL is way too expensive. Any alternative brands, ladies? Thank You!

Wow; I'm new here and just found this thread. Looks like I'm going to the wet blanket here, darn it. I have been taking the NSI brand HA from Vitacost for about four months now, and I'm said to say I have not noticed any difference.

I certainly buy the theory, which is why I started doing it. It's great to hear of some of your great results, and frankly, makes me a little jealous! Smile

carekate - I was wondering if you are still using the Swellips? I was interested in purchasing it but when I ran an Ebay search, I got no results.... Where are you buying it from? Can you post the link or email of the person who is making so I can purchase? THANKS!

Just wondering if anyone knows if they make a smaller Hyaluronic acid capsule? I have a heck of a time swallowing pills and bought a bottle of HA capsules (Natures Way Hydraplenish) and could only muster the pills for a few weeks with nearly choking every time I swallowed one. I really liked the effects of the pills, skin felt great and lips looked plumper too...but finally had to give up at the risk of choking to death! I know this a mind over matter thing, but I guarantee my mind will win every time with this one....there is no changing it.
Or better yet, do they make HA in powder form that I could mix with something? I would love to put HA back in to my supplement line along with MSM...Thanks!! Very Happy

Hey, I just got a recent newsletter from this company I sometimes buy supplements from (they're called Vitamin Research Products). They just came out with a new Hylauronic Acid lip balm. Guess I'm not supposed to link to any websites, but you can find their website easy and just search for "lip balm" on their site. It's a brand new product so they don't have a pic of it yet (I'm not affiliated with this company at all, but I use some of their products and have always been impressed with the research they put into their stuff). After reading this thread I think I might try this stuff out.

The Hylauronic Acid lip balm is the bomb. It is great. It makes your lips feel so soft and supple... I highly recommend this. I am going to buy this to have with me all the time. I am going to try their lotion too. Check this company out. "vitamin Research Products"

I just want to rave again about this Pure HA Lip Balm from Vitamin Research Products. My lips are full and mushy soft. It is be best lip balm I have ever used. It is in my opinion better than L2K....

hi girls,

I don't know if it has been asked before, but does it also plump up your 'other lips', if you know what I mean, lol? Cool

I figured if by taking HA supplements, it must be affecting other areas with the same textures as the lips in your face? Laughing

so maybe the nipples as well?

I'm bringing this back. I stopped taking this for years and actually forgot about it until recently. I found a bottle in my cabinet that had a few left. So I started taking it at night again. and after 3 days WOW! My lips are huge!

I really think it matters that you take the brand Source Naturals Skin Eternal with Biocell Collagen II. It has 600 mg of Type II Collagen in it along with the Hyaluronic Acid of 100mg. Something about that combo.

I have not even started using the city lips again yet. You definitely see more in the AM. Just like if you have salty stuff the night before you are more swollen in the AM. that is why the City Lips will help it stay through the day with its own technology.

City Lips is the only one that was tested by Consumer Reports and they actually MEASURED a difference in swelling after 30 days of use. The others are only temporary. Again I stopped the CL because at $29 a tube it was just too much. But the $12.50 for 2 tubes worth is something I can do. This really fits the title of this thread with EUREKA!

Thanks for posting that link, lucyluc. Really interesting story. The article said that the root potatoes 'stimulate' the bodies natural production of HA, not that they contain HA. So, it seems like you could just eat a regular sweet potato and not necessarily the Japanese one. The regular sweet potato is also a ROOT tuber as opposed to a potato which is a tuber.

Wakame seaweed is another food commonly found in Japanese diets. Wakame inhibits hyaluronidase from breaking down HA. I've been experimenting w/ different recipes, but the only way I can eat the stuff is in an omelet.

Does anyone know the recommended intake of HA by food per day?

Googled HA, because I don't now anything about it and I found that there's also some possibly side effects that can occur, such as cancer.. they haven't really study this for long as it seems, the effect of overdo HA.

"While a number of studies have linked abnormal levels of HA to either connective tissue disorders (CTDs) or conditions common in CTDs, such as premature aging, there are also a number of studies on Pubmed noting associations of high levels of HA to some forms of cancer. With HA as with other substances in the human body, such as estrogen and cholesterol, there are most likely optimal levels, and disease often occurs when these levels become out of range in either direction. Low estrogen levels have been linked to bone loss, while high estrogen levels have been associated with breast cancer. High cholesterol levels have been linked to heart attacks and stroke, while low levels have been linked to bleeding problems and depression. HA has been studied less than either cholesterol or estrogen, but the prudent path would be to assume that the body has optimal levels of HA, as it does for cholesterol, estrogen and many other substances.

As such, it is always prudent to consult your doctor before you decide to take HA or any other type of supplement to make sure it is an appropriate treatment for your particular health condition."

Whoah vanilj...Are you serious? I have estrogen dominance and I'm on birth control with the lowest estrogen and progesterone so now I'm scared. Will the HA really cause that problem as it runs in my family...scary! Shock

So Ladies...I have to say that I'm very disappointed. I am taking collagen capsules and the HA 20mg tablets three times a day and three times each...9 pills a day and I see no improvement and it's been about a week. Sad The brand is Spring Valley. Any suggestions? Maybe I should opt for the lip implant haha.
