The Science of HA
What is HA?
HA (hyaluronic acid) is a molecule found in the skin, joints and muscle groups of all mammals including humans, and is there to provide elasticity, lubrication, and shock resistance. But there’s more to HA than keeping skin smooth and joints flexible.
At the cellular level, HA serves a metabolic purpose by carrying nutrients in and removing waste products such as lactic acid that builds up following hard exercise. HA also plays an active role in wound repair and tissue regrowth.
How does HA work in the body?
HA is a major component of synovial fluid, the viscous, gel-like substance that coats our muscles and can be found between the cartilage at the end of bones to cushion against impact stress and facilitate friction-free movement.
When we’re young, our bodies naturally replenish this fluid with enough HA to keep joints hydrated and facilitate faster recovery from the strain of prolonged physical exertion.
Why does HA have to be supplemented?
As we age, our bodies produce decreasing amounts of productive HA. This causes thinning of the synovial fluid and makes joints stiff and movement painful, especially if arthritis is present.
Supplementing the HA already present in human and animal joints with our exclusive formulation of concentrated hyaluronan is the most effective, and cost-effective, way to improve mobility, reduce inflammation, and increase your (or your animal’s) quality of life.
