HylaMotion - The Next Generation of Joint Supplements Over the years we at Vita Flex

Hyaluronic Acid (HA) - The Ultimate in Joint Lubricants HA is one of the most abundant
glycosaminoglycans (GAGs) in the mammalian body1, and is a major component of skin,
cartilage and synovial fluid2, the shock absorbing fluid in the joints. Osteoarthritis (OA) causes
a change in the HA content in the synovial fluid, which can lead to degradation of the
cartilage3, causing great pain and discomfort to your horse. We asked ourselves, "If HA is the
most abundant GAG, and its integrity is imperative for normal joint function, can we
supplement with HA to help with the wear and tear of competition, aging and training?" We did
the research and found that HA can be supplemented with positive results4 in cases of OA.
From this research we bring you HylaMotion, the ultimate in joint lubricants.
Hyaluronic Acid Works and the Research Proves it Between 1990 and today, hundreds of
clinical studies have been published on the positive effects of supplemental HA. Research has
shown that supplemental HA has positive effects on any number of conditions, from
periodontal disease5 to skin disease6. More importantly, study after study has shown HA to
have positive effects on OA, from decreased pain to reduced inflammation7,8,9. Research has
proven HA to be a valuable tool in fighting the negative side effects that come with competition,
aging and training10.
HylaMotion - Your Choice For Oral HA HylaMotion, by Vita Flex, is derived from natural
sources and carries a molecular weight of 1.3 - 1.8 Mda. This is a very important factor when
considering an HA supplement. Research has shown that the higher weight HA preparations
tend to be more effective11. When you purchase HylaMotion you can be sure your horse is
getting premium, high molecular weight HA.
