Frequently Asked Questions
What is Hyaluronic Acid?
Hyaluronic Acid is a special mucopolysaccharide occurring naturally throughout the human body. One of the most heavily researched substances today. Its function in the body is, amongst other things, to bind water and to lubricate movable parts of the body, such as joints and muscles. Its consistency and tissue-friendliness allow it to be used in skin-care products as an excellent moisturizer. Hyaluronic Acid is one of the most hydrophilic (water-loving) molecules in nature and can be described as “nature’s moisturizer”.
Why does my pet need a hyaluronic acid product?
Hyaluronic Acid is naturally produced by the body as a constituent of synovial fluid that lubricates the cartilage between the joints. As your pet ages, their body produces less and less HA and it becomes more and more difficult to replenish it and the cartilage and other structures of the joint begin to need support. Joints become less flexible and movement is limited. HA supplements pick up where their bodies fail them.
What does HA do for my pet’s joints?
The HA in HyaFlex™ helps to improve joint movement and cushioning. If we compare the joints of your pet’s body to an automobile engine, the joint fluid in their body mimics the oil in a car engine. At regular intervals, we replace the oil in our car engines because the heat and friction breakdown the oil’s viscosity. The oil becomes thinner and less able to protect the metal surfaces from excessive wear. HyaFlex™ acts the same way in their joints. As your pet ages, the viscosity of their joint fluid breaks down and becomes thin and is unable to cushion the joint cartilage. This leads to increased friction on the cartilage surfaces of their joints. Taking HyaFlex™ helps maintain the normal viscosity of joint fluid.
How do I give HyaFlex to my pet?
Just administer the specified amount (shown on the side of the box) of HyaFlex™ to your pet once daily. HyaFlex™ is odorless and tasteless so your pet won’t even notice it. Each bottle of HyaFlex™ contains a 30-60 day supply depending on the weight of the animal.
Where does the Hyaluronic Acid in HyaFlex come from?
The Hyaluronic Acid in Hya-Flex™ comes from an extracellular protein produced by natural fermentation. This product is not derived from any animal source. Hypersensitivity reactions should not be a concern. Natural fermentation can yield higher molecular weight HA. The weight of the molecule directly influences its “moisture-binding” capability, and HyaFlex™ has the highest molecular weight HA on the market. This may explain the phenomenal results we are experiencing.
Because it is an acid will it burn mine or my pet’s skin or stomach?
Hyaluronic Acid is often called an acid and this is a misnomer. Hyaluronic Acid as a sodium salt (sodium hyaluronate)(HyaFlex™) will have a neutral pH measurement, not an acidic. Because of the water retention capacity of Hyaluronic Acid, it is actually a very good moisturizer for the skin and is being used.
Storage and Warnings: Store at room temperature. Keep out of reach of children. Do not use if seal is broken. For small animal oral use only– not for injection use.
To avoid contamination of product, use caution when removing the dropper from the bottle. Avoid contact with any surface or object other than the inside of the bottle.
