Hyaluronic acid is a compound found throughout your body. It plays a key role in many aspects of health, particularly in relation to your skin, eyes, and joints (1).

For example, studies show that it could reduce the appearance of wrinkles and improve skin hydration, texture, and elasticity (2, 3).

It may also support wound healing and the treatment of dry eyes, acid reflux, and osteoarthritis (4, 5, 6, 7).

Your body can produce hyaluronic acid, but the compound is also available in oral supplements, injections, and topical products such as serums.

In addition, you can get it from certain foods. Plus, some foods provide nutrients your body uses to boost hyaluronic acid production.

Here are 7 healthy foods that are high in hyaluronic acid or its building blocks.

Bone broth is made by simmering the bones and connective tissue of animals in liquid for 12–48 hours.

This results in a flavorful product that’s rich in many nutrients, including hyaluronic acid.

Bone broth also contains a good amount of protein, with approximately 10 grams in each 1-cup (240-mL) serving (8).

Additionally, it’s a good source of the compounds proline, glutamine, chondroitin, and glucosamine.

Proline and glutamine are two types of amino acids — the building blocks of protein. They promote protein production in your body. Chondroitin and glucosamine support joint health (9, 10, 11).

Plus, it’s rich in collagen, a type of protein that has been shown to improve skin elasticity and hydration (12).
