Hyaluronic Acid and Joints

Has anyone tried Hyaluronic Acid for joint pain or muscle strains?

I’ll say it again. If you have joint pain, find out what is going on, so you know what you are treating (osteoarthritis i.e. “wear and tear” arthritis, etc.).

Glucosamine, MSM, etc are useful for osteoarthritis. Cytolyse (by tyler check the web) or wobenzyme (see previous threads) are useful for any kind of inflammation including DOMS.

One caution that I forget to mention: if you have an ulcer don’t even think of taking wobenzyme or cytolyse. If you have heartburn, or develop “stomach” pain while taking wobenzyme/cytolyse–stop taking it.
