Does Oral Hyaluronic Acid Supplementation Benefit the Horse?

Platinum Joint Care Competition + HA contains hyaluronic acid (HA) to help lubricate and cushion joints. Although it is commonly administered intra-articularly (injected), orally-administered hyaluronic acid has been shown, in several studies, to be bioavailable (absorbable) and effective in augmenting or replacing the damaged HA in the joint that is commonly caused by trauma or overuse. By providing your horse a daily dose of hyaluronic acid, it is constantly available to the body and actively working to help support healthy joints.
