Human Joint Supplement FAQs

What is LubriSynHA?

LubriSynHA is a premium, liquid oral joint supplement composed of high-molecular weight hyaluronic acid. Hyaluronic acid is essential to healthy joints because it works to support healthy synovial fluid.

What is hyaluronic acid (HA) and how does it work?

Hyaluronic acid (HA), also known as hyaluronan, is a clear, viscous substance that is naturally produced by the body of all mammals. The largest amounts of it are found in skin, eyes, and joints. Its main function is to retain moisture to keep tissues well lubricated. 

It is the main component of synovial fluid, which works to cushion healthy joints. With age and injury, this fluid starts to break down causing pain and inflammation. Consuming a high-molecular weight, liquid hyaluronic acid daily can work to replenish this fluid and greatly reduce discomfort.

 

Why is HA a better ingredient to support joint health?

While glucosamine and chondroitin have been known to help keep connective tissues (cartilage and ligaments) healthy, it does not support the synovial fluid. HA is the only ingredient that does this.

Does molecular weight matter?

Yes, it absolutely does. High-molecular weight hyaluronic acid is bio-identical to what is found naturally in the body and this ensures that it is effective. Low-molecular weight HA is often not as effective in supporting healthy joint function as high-molecular weight.

 

What is the molecular weight of LubriSynHA?

LubriSynHA has a molecular weight of 2.4 million Daltons. We pride ourselves on having the highest molecular weight and quality HA on the market today.

Why is LubriSynHA a liquid and why is that superior to a pill or powder?

LubriSynHA is in a liquid form for a few reasons:

  1. Hyaluronic acid in its natural state is a liquid. When it is put in a pill or powder, it is dehydrated. When consumed, the body has to re-hydrate in order for it to be used. Most of the time, it is passed to the lower GI before this happens. Therefore, results are slower and sometimes not as effective. 
  2. Liquid HA is far more easily absorbed by the body naturally. LubriSynHA is absorbed in the upper GI (mouth and upper mucosal) and distributed to the body. Because of this, results are often seen much more quickly than pills or powders.

How does LubriSynHA compare to other joint products, injectable or ingestible?

LubriSynHA is safer and less invasive than injectable products and can show much more consistent results. It is more effective than most supplements on the market because of the quality of our HA as well as supporting the most integral part of the joint, the synovial fluid.

What is the dosage and how do I take it?

We recommend 1 tbsp per day for one week loading dose, then as a maintenance dose, taking 2 tsp minimum per day.*

*Results may vary. Take more as needed. You may need as much as 1-3 tbsp per day in severe cases. 

What does LubriSynHA taste like?

LubriSynHA Original formula and the LubriSynHA Plus MSM have a slightly sweet taste from the glycerin, a natural sweetener. The grape is flavored with a natural grape and tastes accordingly. People compare it to agave or Karo syrup in taste and consistency. 

LubriSynHA is a viscous substance and is somewhat thick. If you don’t prefer the consistency, we recommend you mix it with something cool or cold, not hot. 

 

How much HA is in a dose of LubriSynHA?

There is 75mg of high-molecular weight hyaluronic acid in a daily dose of LubriSynHA. 

 

How much does LubriSynHA cost?

At MSRP, LubriSynHA costs around $1.10 per day when dosed as recommended. You can often find it for less than that.

How is LubriSynHA made?

Unlike other forms of liquid HA made from animal sources (e.g. rooster combs), LubriSynHA is extracted from a microbial source in an FDA approved facility. This method not only keeps LubriSynHA free from protein contamination that can cause HA products to break down and lose their effectiveness, but also ensures it is a vegan product.

When should I start taking LubriSynHA?

Anytime! LubriSynHA works as a preventative, working to maintain healthy joint function and also on those currently suffering from joint discomfort.

 

How long before I see results?

Because of our high-quality HA and liquid formulation, LubriSynHA works quickly and most people see results in as little as 7-10 days.

What is the shelf life of LubriSynHA?

All LubriSynHA products have a shelf life of 18-months. 

Can I give LubriSynHA in conjunction with other supplements or medications?

Yes, because it is all-natural it is perfectly safe to administer LubriSynHA in conjunction with any other supplement or medications without interactions.

Is there proof that LubriSynHA is absorbed into the joint?

Studies of high molecular weight hyaluronic acid show that it begins to appear in tissues outside the intestinal tract in thirty (30) minutes, and peaks between four and six hours post ingestion. As a daily supplement, LubriSynHA provides a continual supply of hyaluronic acid to support the rapid turnover of synovial fluid.

What is the difference between LubriSynHA and LubriSynHA Plus MSM?

LubriSynHA contains our trusted hyaluronic acid formula. The LubriSynHA Plus MSM contains the extra support of MSM which aids in the support of connective tissues and added anti-inflammatory.

What is MSM?

MSM or Methylsulfonylmethane has anti-inflammatory and antioxidant effects. Sulphur, which is a major component of MSM, plays an important role in making collagen and glucosamine, both of which are vital for healthy joints. Our MSM product is great for older animals with more severe cases of arthritis or performance animals for accelerated recovery.

Is there a difference between equine, pet, human, and livestock products?

The pet & equine, and livestock formulas are the same, only dosed differently. The livestock is labeled separately as well. The human product is 20% stronger than the other formulas but contains all the same safe ingredients.

Can I take too much LubriSynHA?

No, since it is all-natural, you cannot overdose on LubriSynHA. In fact, some people with more severe joint discomfort do better on a higher dose of LubriSynHA (1-3 tbsp per day.)
