Hyaluronic Acid is Found in Synovial Joint Fluid Our joints.

 

The elbows knees and all other joints are surrounded by a membrane called the synovial membrane, which forms a capsule around the ends of the bones.  This membrane secretes a liquid called the synovial fluid.  Basically, the synovial fluid is found in joint cavities. It has many functions,serving as a lubricant, shock absorber & as a nutrient carrier.  The fluid protects the joints and bones.  Cartilage is immersed in the synovial fluid and is a fibrous connective tissue.

 

The fibroblast is the most common cell that creates Collagen.

 

Collagen makes up 95% of joint cartilage. The more collagen there is in the joints, the less chance is there for the development of osteoarthritis. A fibroblast is a type of cell that synthesizes the extracellular matrix and collage. Collagen is a protein made up of amino-acids: glycine, proline, hydroxyproline, and arginine.

 

 

Roles of Collagen and Hyaluronic Acid in Cartilage repair.

There are many of our ingredients that stimulate HA and Collagen production. Here are a few.

 

Aloe Vera: Proline, Arginine, Glycine, Niacin are essential to collagen production. Lignins, a major structural material of cellulose content allows for penetrative properties.

 

Gelatin: is a mixture of peptides and proteins produced by partial hydrolysis of collagen

 

Boswellia Serrata : extract attenuates inflammatory mediators and oxidative stress in collagen induced arthritis

 

Solomons Seal: asparagin, allantoin, gum, mucilage, starch and pectin. Also contains Diosgenin a natural cortisone for pain relief. Supports structural function in developing proteins and stmulates HA production.
