Looking up hyaluronic acid in a dictionary, it is called glycosaminoglycan or also long-chain linear polysaccharide. Apart from the technical terminology, it can be stated that the substance occurs in the body of vertebrates and humans and is primarily characterised by its ability to store water. One gram of hyaluronic acid can bind up to six litres of water to itself, which is why it is the connective tissue where this particular substance is found.
