Hyaluronan, also known as hyaluronic acid or HA is a natural biomacromolecule found throughout the body in all mammals. It has many functions and purposes including but not limited to cell signaling, skin healing, retaining moisture, lubricating connective tissue, absorbing shock in joints, filtering synovial fluid, and supplying nutrients to cartilage. Located in high concentration in synovial fluid and cartilage, HA's main purpose is lubrication and shock absorption in order for joints to function comfortably. HA also has properties that contribute to reducing pain, easing inflammation, and are chondroprotective. Although naturally occurring, HA quantities and production decrease with time and deficiency may become problematic in older or actively competing horses.
