WHAT IS HA?
Hyaluronic acid is also known as hyaluronan or hyaluronate. It's a gel like substance that the human and animal body produces and is present naturally in joints.HA is important for lubrication of jointsas it binds well to water, which produces a viscous, gel like consistency. This can also provide shock absorption on the joint during high impact movements. It also helps growth of cartilage and bone, promoting the growth of new cells and tissues.

Methylsulfonylmethane is a naturally occuring substance in humans, animals and plants. It is generally used to reduce inflammation in the body, and can inhibit the break down of cartilage. It's also used to help recovery after exercise, and reduces muscle damage and stress.
