  • Doctor’s Best Hyal-Joint 120C has been discontinued as of October 2016. Please see your local retailer for product in stock.

  • Doctor’s Best Hyal-Joint® is a unique formula that helps maintain healthy, smooth joint fluid for free and easy movement.* Hyaluronic acid is an important component of articular cartilage, where it is present as a coat around each chondrocytes, cells that maintain cartilaginous matrix, which consist mainly of collagen and proteoglycans.

  • Hyal-Joint® is composed of 60% hyaluronic acid, along with collagen, the major structural protein in connective tissue responsible for its strength, and other glycosaminoglycans which provide structural strength and integrity to cells while providing elasticity and lubrication to joints and other body parts.

  • Hyaluronic acid occurs naturally in the body as a part of synovial fluid, which provides the liquid layer that lubricates joints and is essential for healthy joint function and mobility.*

What is Doctor’s Best Hyal-Joint®?

Doctor’s Best Hyal-Joint ® is a unique formula that helps maintain healthy, smooth joint fluid for free and easy movement.* Hyal-Joint® is composed of 60% hyaluronic acid, along with collagen and other glycosaminoglycans. Hyaluronic acid occurs naturally in the body as a part of synovial fluid, which provides viscous liquid layer that lubricates joints and is essential for healthy joint function and mobility.* Collagen is the major structural protein in connective tissue responsible for its strength.

Our extracellular matrix provides cushioning and support for the bone-to-bone connections of our joints that allow us to move. For our joints to work according to nature’s design, the spaces between our joints need to maintain the viscous joint fluid whose viscosity keeps friction from building up as joints move harmoniously with each other. Hyaluronic acid provides this vitally important viscosity—the “slipperiness” that allows us to move freely and easily. Hyaluronic Acid is remarkably viscous: 5000 times more so than water. The synovial membrane, the protective layer surrounding joints, is rich in hyaluronic acid. The pliancy and resiliency of our joints would be non-existent without Hyaluronic Acid.

How does it work?

Hyaluronic acid, a glycosaminoglycan, is necessary for the synovial fluid to perform its lubricating function in joints. Studies on the intra-articular injection of hyaluronic acid into joints suggest that exogenous hyaluronic acid potentiates endogenous production in synovial fibroblasts (synoviocytes). In an in vitro study, Hyal-Joint® effectively stimulated endogenous synthesis of hyaluronic acid in synoviocytes.


It has been observed that an ideal content of hyaluronic acid in joints––with a concomitant retention of its elastic, lubricating benefits––occurs in tandem with optimal joint health and function. Joint health is inextricably linked to the amount of hyaluronic acid in synovial fluid (intra-articular content). Collagen fibrils form the structural backbone of the joint’s tissue matrix and contains chondrocytes surrounded by a multicomponent matrix of connective tissue, of which cartilage is a major component. 60 to 70% of the dry weight of cartilage is made up of collagen fibrils.

 

Glycosaminoglycans are complex, versatile molecules that impart structural strength and integrity to cells while providing elasticity and lubrication to joints and other body parts. Glycosaminoglycans can be thought of as anatomic “glue and grease” that keep bodily structures strong, supple and moving together smoothly.

Is it OK to take Collagen Type 2 with Collagen Types 1 and 3, or do they compete with each other for absorption?

They do not compete. To some extent, both would be digested in the GI tract and provide building blocks to the body for connective tissue support.

Type I is the most abundant collagen in the body and is in high concentrations in blood vessels, tendons, skin and muscle tissue.

Type III is used by the body for quick repairs and is often a precursor to type I.

Type II is the major component of hyaline cartilage in joint tissue.

Taking all together would likely yield an increase in the building blocks that are needed by the body to support connective tissue in many different areas.
