Hyaluronic Acid: A synergetic added ingredient for animal joint health

While glucosamine and chondroitin are in the limelight as major joint health supplements—both for humans and their animal friends—hyaluronic acid is quickly gaining recognition for its role in supporting joint tissue maintenance.

Vertebrates naturally produce their own hyaluronic acid (HA). In the natural joint health cascade, HA combines with protein and glycosaminoglycans (GAGs) to form proteoglycans. These are intertwined with collagen to give structure to cartilage. On its own, HA is also found in synovial fluid where it acts as a joint lubricant.

HA, when orally consumed by humans or animals, has a somewhat mysterious method of action. Some of it is likely absorbed and utilized in the joints. But, perhaps more importantly, it appears to be absorbed into the bloodstream where it acts as a signal to the immune system, balancing the inflammation response. Supplemental HA also seems to stimulate the animal’s own production of new native HA. This could explain why joint health formulas that rely on glucosamine and chondroitin show enhanced efficacy when combined with hyaluronic acid.

Wilke Resources provides high-quality pet-oriented sources for all three of these joint support ingredients. We can help you upgrade your existing product or create a new joint health formula that meets and exceeds pet owners’ expectations.

Why Use Hyaluronic Acid from Wilke Resources?

Pet owners who wish to provide natural supplements for their animal companions are often highly discerning regarding ingredient quality. Wilke Resources’ Hyaluronic Acid / Sodium Hyaluronate is single-sourced and is available in both high molecular weight (1.0-1.2 million Da) and low molecular weight (<40,000 Da) versions. While both appear to perform equally as well, the high molecular weight version has garnered the most attention and use.
