In brief: Replenish aged fluid

Oil is to a car as hyaluronic acid (supartz) is to a body.
As we age, the fluid in our joints becomes less effective. Supartz (purified hyaluronic acid from rooster combs) is used to help in replenishing the lubricating and cushioning effects of joint fluid. Supartz is approved for injection into the knee joint. After several injections, a patient may have less pain and better knee movement.

In brief: Lubrication

This is an over simplification but it essentially lubricates the joint.
