Sodium Hyaluronate (COO Na) (CH2OH)
Hyaluronic acid, a glycosaminoglycan, can exist in the following forms depending on the chemical environment in which it is found. As the acid, hyaluronic acid; and as the sodium salt, sodium hyaluronate. It is composed of repeating subunits of D-glucuronic acid and N-acetyl-D-glucosamine linked together by glycosidic bonds.
Hyaluronic acid is muco-polysaccharide that occurs naturally throughout the horse's body. It is one of the most hydrophilic molecules in nature and can be described as "natures moisturizer". Backed by thousands of clinical trials in the fields of orthopedics and eye surgery, one of hyaluronic acid's most important functions in the body is to lubricate joints as an integral component of synovial fluid. While hyaluronic acid is in the "family" of glycosaminoglycans, it is unique in its restorative ability, and will often provide improvement, where glucosamine and chondroitin have failed to do so.
