What is supartz® joint fluid therapy exactly?

Joint lubricant. 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.
Hyaluronan. Hyaluronan is a substance produced by the cartilage in healthy joints. As your cartilage ages it produces less and the fluid in the knee becomes thinner. Supartz (hyaluronic acid) will thicken the fluid and help with pain in the arthritic knee.
