Synthovial 7™ is hyaluronic acid. Hyaluronic acid (HA) is a special mucopolysacharide that is the normal lubricant in human joints. When present in a joint, even a joint with minimal or no cartilage, it can provide a cushion effect. Hyaluronic acid helps to maintain smooth, elastic skin. HA is used in many cosmetics such as make-up and moisturizing creams. Basically, HA helps to hold water in the skin. HA helps control cell migration which protect cells and also activates the white cells. Since HA is an endogenous substance, it can be used to reduce the need for antibiotics by stimulating the immune system. HA helps reduce bacterial infections and has been found to inhibit the growth of a variety of strains of bacteria. It has also been concluded that HA even reduced the number of chronic bronchitis infections in patients. Other benefits may include: Increased Mobility Softer Skin Faster Wound Healing Fibromyalgia Relief Retinal Lubrication Clearer Vision Dry Skin Relief Dietary Benefits Improved Sleep Stabilized Emotions Reduced Fine Lines Improved Vitality Hair Growth Hair Color Restoration Tissue Reconstruction Improved Bone Density Increased Mental Alertness Improved Muscle Strength Increased Sexual Potency Strengthening of Internal Organs Synthovial 7™ is an oral solution made from premium grade hyaluronic acid with a molecular weight between 2.4 -- 2.8 million Daltons. Hyaluronic acid (HA) is a polymer and it can come in varying molecular weights. Studies have shown more benefits with the higher molecular weight HA polymers. More cushioning and lubricating properties for the joints and tissues, more moisture retaining qualities for the skin. We have the highest molecular weight oral HA in the market. Synthovial 7™ is a liquid solution of hyaluronic acid. Oral liquid solutions by nature are absorbed by the body easier and quicker than tablets and capsules. Enjoy the benefits faster --- joint pain relief, clearer, smoother, younger looking skin and all the other anti-aging benefits of hyaluronic acid all throughout the body. Seven drops in a glass of water once a day is all it takes. You don't have to worry if you have taken the third of four doses of those capsules or tablets today. You don't have to make doctor appointments for those costly and painful injections. You don't have to take extra medications to combat the harmful side effects of your prescription. And no more of those smelly and messy creams. Synthovial 7™ is hyaluronic acid that comes from an extracellular substance produced by a bacteria in a laboratory. There are no animal derivatives. Since HA is native to the human body and our product is not derived from animal tissue, hypersensitivity is not a concern. There are no known side effects. Frequently Asked Questions: What is Hyaluronic Acid? Hyaluronic acid is a special protein occurring naturally throughout the human body. One of the most heavily researched substances in medicine today with thousands of clinical trials mostly in the fields of orthopedics and eye surgery. Its function in the body is, amongst other things, to bind water and to lubricate movable parts of the body, such as joints and muscles. Its consistency and tissue-friendliness allows it to be used in skin-care products as an excellent moisturizer. Hyaluronic acid is one of the most hydrophilic molecules in nature and can be described as "nature’s moisturizer". Why do I need a hyaluronic acid supplement? Hyaluronic acid is naturally produced by the body as a constituent of synovial fluid that lubricates the cartilage between the joints. As we age, the body produces less and less HA and it becomes more and more difficult to replenish it. With osteoarthritis, the cartilage and other structures of the joint begin to break down. In some people, a small amount of inflammation breaks down the hyaluronic acid so that proper lubrication is lost. Joints become stiff and movement is painful. HA supplements pick up where our bodies fail us. What does HA do for my joints? The HA in Synthovial 7™ acts to help improve joint movement and cushioning. If we compare the joints of the human body to and automobile engine, the joint fluid in the body mimics the oil in a car engine. At regular intervals we replace the oil in our car engines because the heat and friction breakdown the oils viscosity. The oil becomes thinner and less able to protect the metal surfaces from excessive wear. Synthovial 7™ acts the same way in our joints. As we age the viscosity of the joint fluid breaks down and becomes thin and is unable to cushion the joint cartilage. This leads to increased friction and wear on the cartilage surfaces of the joints. Taking Synthovial 7™ helps restore the normal viscosity of joint fluid and prevent or arrest damage to the joint. What if I don’t have joint problems? If you are not currently experiencing joint problems then Synthovial 7™ may be used to provide benefits in the long run. Just as we change the oil in our car to help prevent problems, taking Synthovial 7™ may help or prevent joint damage due to aging or daily abuse by maintaining proper joint fluid viscosity. Also, our hyaluronic acid production slows down considerably as we age, which accounts in part for the wrinkling of the skin, the joint pain, arterial degeneration, etc., so it makes good sense to compensate with supplemental HA. Are these products safe? Since Hyaluronic acid occurs naturally in the body, taking small amounts of HA in our products should be of no health concern. In fact hyaluronic acid is non-toxic at doses a hundred times the standard daily dose of 7 drops of Synthovial 7. Where does your Hyaluronic Acid come from? Our acid comes from an extracellular protein produced by bacteria. Our products are not derived from any animal source. Hypersensitivity reactions should not be a concern. Bacterial fermentation can yield higher molecular weight HA. The weight of the molecule directly influences its "moisture-binding" capability, and Synthovial 7 has the highest molecular weight HA in the market. This may explain the phenomenal results we are experiencing. Can your products be taken with glucosamine and chondroitin? If you are already taking other supplements or medication for joint pain, taking Synthovial can supplement the effects of your current medications. While HA is in the "family" of glycosaminoglycans, it is unique in its restorative ability, and will often provide improvement, where glucosamine and chondroitin have failed to do so. The synergistic action of all of these molecules is of course, the optimal way to address joint pain and stiffness, as they all represent the materials that comprise the matrix of our connective tissues. Do I need to take these supplements with food? Synthovial 7 is easily tolerated with or without food. We recommend taking Synthovial 7™ first thing in the morning (this is a good way of getting in the habit of taking it everyday). It is only necessary to take it once a day, although many people take it in the morning and again at bedtime and report excellent results. As with any nutritional supplement, it is important to be consistent and take it every day. Do doctors use Hyaluronic acid to treat their patients. The answer is yes. Hyaluronic acid has been directly injected by needle into the affected joints. This has yielded great results by immediately increasing the viscosity of the joint fluid and restoring proper lubrication and cushioning. More work has been done in the field of orthopedics, cosmetic and eye surgery. It has been used in eye surgery as a replacement fluid in the eye. Applied topically to wounds and severe burns, can promote rapid healing and reduce scarring. How long has HA been used? Hyaluronic acid was first used commercially in 1942 when Endre Balazs applied for a patent to use it as a substitute for egg white in bakery products. He went on to become the leading expert on HA, and made the majority of discoveries concerning HA. When Hyaluronic acid is taken orally, does the stomach acid break it down so you don’t receive the benefits At one time it was thought that stomach acids destroyed the HA molecule. More recent research has shown a large portion of the molecule goes undisturbed by the acid and goes on to be absorbed in the small intestine. Synthovial 7 is the purest, most absorbable HA available. Suggested Use: For best results, use a full dropper, one(1) ml. daily in cold water. Approximately one month's supply. Ingredients: Hyaluronic acid 2.15mg.
