How does your horse’s Hyaluronic Acid supplement measure up?

by DePaolo Equine Concepts

There are several Hyaluronic Acid supplements on the market for horses today but not all of them measure up.  Our HyalONE® is ONE that will actually give your horse the equine sized dose of HA that it needs.

What is Hyaluronic Acid?

Hyaluronic Acid is a cushioning and lubricating agent that acts against mechanical and chemical damage. It plays an important role in tissue hydration, maintaining and regulating moisture and tissue lubrication. Hyaluronic acid is a major component of normal synovial fluid.

Do horses produce it naturally?

Yes, but as horses (and all other animals) age, the body produces lesser amounts of Hyaluronic Acid and it becomes more difficult to replenish. The body’s natural store of HA may become degraded or destroyed. The joints can become stiff and then movement becomes painful.

What exactly does Hyaluronic Acid do?

Hyaluronic acid promotes an increase in the viscosity of synovial fluid which may lubricate and cushion the joints.  Hyaluronic acid is the most hydrophilic substance in the body which means that it is the most water loving. It is able to hold more water than any other natural substance. Bringing extra water to any part of the body supports hydration and lubrication of those areas.  In short it promotes joint health and supports the lubrication of joints.

How is HyalONE® different than other equine HA supplements on the market?

Most equine hyaluronic acid supplements aren’t even equal to a human sized dose of HA.  HyalONE® contains an equine sized dose of the joint supplement.   This unique formula of 250 mg per dose may significantly help in the lubrication and maintenance of healthy cartilage and connective tissue.

HyalONE®  is formulated with a low Dalton weight hylauronic acid, so it will cross the digestive tract to be absorbed by the body. HyalONE® may also reduce the need for Non-Steroidal Anti-Inflammatory Drugs (NSAIDs).
