mpropelus Posted August 2, 2011 Share Posted August 2, 2011 Excerpt from http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/10401858 "RESULTS: The shear properties of hyaluronic acid were relatively close to those of human vocal fold mucosal tissues reported previously. Hyaluronic acid at specific concentrations (0.5%-1%), with or without fibronectin, was found to exhibit viscous shear properties (viscous shear modulus and dynamic viscosity) similar to those of the average male and female vocal fold mucosa." Upon reading this, I emailed Dr. Titze about it and this is what he said: "James, HA is abundant in the vocal folds, but there is as yet * no evidence that ingesting it (orally) will increase the concentration in the vocal folds. It is normally made by local cells in an organ. Dr. Titze" *I emphasized the word "yet" purposefully--since it may imply that there is a possibility that a Hyaluronic Acid supplement may be a catalyst for strengthening the vocal cords. What do you think? -James Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
