Revelox

Revelox™ is a natural products company that discovers, acquires and commercializes innovative natural ingredient technologies. Its mission is to offer premium-quality Specially Formulated Products to the dietary supplement and natural health product industries to promote optimal health and wellness. With over 15 years of combined experience in hyaluronic acid products, Revelox specializes in producing products that contain pure hyaluronic acid, a naturally occurring substance in the body providing only the purest, highest molecular weight hyaluronic acid produced by an advanced biotechnology method.

Hyaluronic acid (HA) variously called “Nature’s Moisturiser” or “Fountain of Youth” is found throughout the body as it forms part of the structural tissue that holds tissues together. Almost half of HA in the body is located in the collagen of skin, acting as a moisture retaining gel. It is also found in most tissues in the body including the heart, eyes (vitreous humour), joints (synovial fluid), tendons and ligaments. HA improves skin and tissue hydration, works as a free radical scavenger, and stimulates the production of collagen in the skin, keeps skin elastic and protects joints from repeated stresses. HA itself has a short lifespan and the body must be produce it each day to maintain the levels necessary for the repair and regeneration of tissues lost through wear and tear.

As we age the production of HA in the body decreases. Fibroblasts, which produce collagen, elastin and fibronectin to provide strength, structure and elasticity to the skin, slowdown and become less active and produce less HA. As HA levels become depleted, collagen fibres bind together into more rigid fibres leading to older facial looks. Increasing the HA levels by supplementation can promote the collagen which gives a more youthful facial look.

The unique viscous nature of HA and the fact that it does not stimulate immune or allergic responses and is extremely well tolerated in the body has led to its use in a number of clinical applications including the treatment of osteoarthritis and associated joint problems, as a surgical aid in eye surgery, as an essential stimulator of the healing process and tissue regeneration in burns and surgical wounds, etc.

Our joints are surrounded by a membrane called the synovial membrane which forms a protective capsule around the ends of the bones. This membrane secretes synovial fluid which serves as a lubricant, shock absorber and nutrient carrier. All the nutrients needed by the cartilage are provided by the synovial fluid. Hyaline cartilage is the most predominant form of cartilage and it lends strength and flexibility to the body. A key component of cartilage is HA.

As we age and produce less HA so the viscoelasticity of the synovial fluid is markedly reduced thereby decreasing its lubricating and shock absorbing functions. This increases mechanical loading of the joint and cartilage destruction, which ultimately results in pain and restricted mobility of the affected joints.
