How Hyaluronic Acid is the Key to Longevity for this Japanese Village

How would you like to be one hundred years old without any pain, any ache, without ever needing to visit the doctor’s office, not even for a checkup? How would you like to grow older while keeping your health, to pile up knowledge without losing your strength? Sounds pretty amazing, right? Like one those magical medical treatments Doctor Leonard H. "Bones" McCoy used to perform in the nursery on board of the Enterprise and that would bring Captain Kirk back to shape no matter how much trouble he went through. No way! you say? Well, I understand the skepticism since Doctor McCoy too aged eventually…but what if I told you that similar results are actually within reach? What if I told you that the inhabitants of the Japanese village of Yuzurihara routinely live in their nineties without ever experiencing any of those age-related diseases and complications elderly people come across on a daily basis? It might not be Doctor McCoy‘s magical all-healing self-regenerating capsule, yet…but it’s definitely worth reading on.


Yuzurihara is a small rural village a couple hours by train from Tokyo, Japan. Despite the lack of any proper tourist attraction, this small village has kept hundreds of scientists and researches awake at night over the past decade. You wonder why? Let’s take a look at the figures: there are about 10 times more people living beyond the age of 85 in Yuzurihara than there are in North America. On top of that, the inhabitants of Yuzurihara seemingly make no effort to achieve such amazing results. Despite their remarkable age, they smoke (heavily!) if they feel like it and drink sake at birthdays, festivals, or simply for an extra help digesting at night.


That makes us wonder (along with plenty of researches all over the world): what’s the secret behind Yuzurihara inhabitants’ longevity? What makes them achieve such incredible results and simply age better?


Two words: Hyaluronic Acid.


Yuzurihara village’s diet is composed mostly by potatoes and several other vegetables that are rich in hyaluronic acid. Hence, without even knowing it, the inhabitants of this village have been assuming high dosages of this miraculous substance since they were kids.


What’s Hyaluronic Acid?

Hyaluronic acid is a substance that’s naturally found in the human body. The highest concentration is in the joints and in the eyes, although it is present in connective tissue throughout the body. Biology apart, why is the hyaluronic acid so important? What the hyaluronic acid does (and it does it way better than any other natural or synthetic compound) it to retain moisture. In fact, one gram of hyaluronic acid can retain up to 6 liters of water.

It is indeed its phenomenal ability to retain moisture that makes it so special and such an important aid to prevent aging.

As we grow older, our skin loses its original moisture and the tissues (including the joints) lack in firmness and pliability. The result is a skin that, due to the sun and other external factors, shows more and more wrinkles, as well as a body that’s more fragile and easier to get hurt. That is why hyaluronic acid treatments (whether the assumption is oral or the serum is applied directly onto the skin) are vital to reestablish the elasticity the skin used to have in its youth while preserving the body’s overall flexibility to prevent permanent injuries.  

On top of that, hyaluronic acid will provide the skin and the tissues with an extra layer of protection and antioxidant defense against free-radical damage.

I’m pretty sure that Doctor Leonard H. "Bones" McCoy was already beyond the hyaluronic acid stage and that there was way more to that magic capsule in the Enterprise’s nursery. Yet, the inhabitants of Yuzurihara are the living proof that a daily assumption of hyaluronic will be of great help in any anti-age treatment and will help you look younger and feel better despite the years slowly piling up.
