Hyalogic Hyaluronic Acid for Joints HA Chewable Lozenge Mixed Berry makes getting the joint-health benefits of hyaluronic acid (HA) easier and tastier than ever before. After all, a nutritional supplement cannot help you unless you take it. With a delicious, natural and sugar-free berry flavor, each HA chewable lozenge delivers 60mg of vegan, high molecular weight HA.

Hyaluronic acid is a remarkable, water-loving molecule naturally found all throughout the human body, acting as lubricant in your joints and cartilage as well as a hydrating moisturizer in your skin and an important component of healthy eye function. As you age, your body's ability to produce HA can slow. The HA chewable lozenge aids in maintaining healthy levels of HA in the body in order to support healthy joint movement, eyes and skin. It's the simplest and sweetest way to promote lasting healthy mobility.
What is Hyaluronic Acid (HA)?
HA is the natural lubricant for the joint. HA Can hold up 1,000 times its weight in water and when present in the joint cavity, it provides lubrication and shock absorbing properties. Hyaluronic Acid (HA), also known as hyaluronan or hyaluronate, is a carbohydrate, more specifically a mucopolysaccharide occurring naturally throughout the human body. It can be several thousands of sugars (carbohydrates) long. When not bound to other molecules, it binds to water giving it a stiff viscous quality similar to "Jello". This viscous Gel is one of the most heavily researched substances in medicine today with thousands of trials mostly in the fields of orthopedics and eye surgery. 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.
What’s the benefit of taking a Lozenge?
Easy. Effective. Great Tasting. Convenient. Your HA Lozenges won’t work if you don’t take them. Compliance is important. Joint health has never been easier or better tasting. The HA Lozenge is a revolutionary new, great tasting tablet that dissolves in the mouth and provides benefits – quickly and easily.
Hyaluronic Acid Benefits for the Body?
When comparing the joints of the human body to an automobile engine, the joint fluid in the body mimics the oil in a car engine. At regular intervals we replace the oil in our car engines because the heat and friction breakdowns the oils viscosity. The oil becomes thinner and less able to protect the metal surfaces from excessive wear. Hyaluronic acid benefits our joints in the same way. As we age the viscosity of the joint fluid lessens. HA helps to maintain normal joint cushioning.
How does HA benefit the Joints?
HA helps your joints in maintaining their healthy and fluid motion. Hyaluronic Acid supplements the synovial fluid within the joint to help maintain its cushioning properties.
Hyaluronic Acid in Synovial fluid
Joints (like the elbows and knees) are surrounded by a membrane called the synovial membrane which forms a capsule around the ends of the two articulating bones. This membrane secretes a liquid called the synovial fluid. Synovial fluid is a viscous fluid with the consistency of motor oil. It has many functions, but none more than providing the elastic shock absorbing properties of the joint. It's second most important function in the joint is to carry nutrients to the cartilage and to also remove waste from the joint capsule.
Hyaluronic Acid in Tendons and Ligaments/Connective tissue
Connective tissue is found everywhere in the body. It does much more than connect body parts; it has many forms and functions. Its major functions include binding, support, protection, and insulation. One such example of connective tissue is the cordlike structures that connect muscle to bone (tendons) and bone to bone (ligaments). In all connective tissue there are three structural elements. They are ground substance (hyaluronic acid), stretchy fibers (collagen and elastin) and a fundamental cell type. Whereas all other primary tissues in the body are composed mainly of living cells, connective tissues are composed largely of a nonliving ground substance, the hyaluronic acid, which separates and cushions the living cells of the connective tissue. The separation and cushioning allow the tissue to bear weight, withstand great tension and endure abuse that no other body tissue could. All of this is made possible because of the presence of the HA and its ability to form the gelatinous ground substance fluid.
Hyaluronic Acid in Bones and Cartilage
Hyaluronic Acid is found in all bones and cartilage structures throughout the body. Both of these structures provide a resilient rigidity to the structure of the human body. HA is especially found in various forms of cartilage but none more than the hyaline cartilage. As you've probably guessed it, hyaline is short for hyaluronic acid. Hyaline cartilage covers the ends of the long bones where articulation (bending) occurs and provides a cushioning effect for the bones. The hyaline cartilage has been called the "gristle cartilage" because its resistance to wear and tear. Hyaline cartilage also supports the tip of the nose, connects the ribs to the sternum and forms most of the larynx and supporting cartilage of the trachea and bronchial tubes in the lungs.
What is Hyaluronic Acid's Chemical Structure?
It is naturally produced in the human body and is chemically classified as a Glycosaminoglycan. In the body, hyaluronic acid always presents itself as a large high molecular weight molecule. The molecule is made up of a repetitive sequence of two modified simple sugars, one called glucuronic acid and the other N acetyl glucosamine. These compounds are both negatively charged and when put together, they repel producing an exceptionally long stretched out molecule (high molecular weight). HA molecules that are long and large in size produce a high viscosity (lubrication) effect which resists compression and allows our joints and skin to bear weight.
As a dietary supplement, take one lozenge daily or as needed. Chew lozenge or hold in mouth until dissolved.
