Can hyaluronic acid ingested orally be absorbed by the body?

4 doctors agree

In brief: HA

Yes, if you modify the molecule and lower the molecular weight but original ha will not absorb orally as the molecule is too big.
The small varients in theory will not combine with water in the joint as readily and are less efficacious than the injectible form.
