Hyaluronic acid is a biopolymer that naturally occurs in our bodies where it binds with water.

Hyaluronic acid has the capacity to hold water, and thus, regulates moisture in the tissues and supports lubrication1.* The most abundant amounts of HA are found in our skin, connective tissue, and eyes.

HA is very important element of cartilage structure because it’s responsible for the lubrication properties of synovial fluid maintaining its viscosity2.* It also helps the mesenchymal stem cells to produce Type II collagen and glycosaminoglycans3.*

Many studies were conducted to support the importance of HA for normal joints function, lubrication and comfort1-3.*
