"When your bones rub together, the result can be disastrous for your health and well-being! What a pity that Mother Nature didn’t see fit to provide us with Teflon-capped bones to prevent the loss of healthy structure and function. That would be truly bionic, a future merging of technology with biology. What can a person do? Glucosamine is a substance known from scientific studies to be supportive of proper knee and other joint functions, and while the research results on chondroitin sulfate have been mixed, there is now growing scientific support that low-molecular-weight chondroitin sulfate is the best way to truly benefit, especially when it is combined with glucosamine. What about hyaluronic acid, an important component of joint cartilage and the principal constituent of synovial fluid, which bathes and lubricates all our synovial joints? In low-molecular-weight forms, it’s not very useful and not very bioavailable. However, in high-molecular-weight form, it can be beneficial—provided that you can get it to where it’s needed. The good news is that new scientific evidence supports the use of a special form of liposomal phospholipid delivery material. Called nanospheres, these infinitesimal encapsulators can significantly improve the bioavailability of hyaluronic acid. Using the same material referenced in a recent study,1 Life Enhancement is able to take advantage of this futuristic technology right now, because we have been employing and refining its use for several years."

'I have been using this product for a few months now and feel a noticeable improvement in my knee joints which were "achey" on a daily basis and now mostly do not bother me. Contains copper salyicilate which is great for joints, as well as glucosamine, chondroitin and hyaluronic acid to boost collagen in connective tissue. Copper levels decline with age and supplementing with copper greatly assists with joint repair. To start with I took a loading dose of 1ml twice per day, and after a couple of weeks I went down to a daily dose of 1ml once a day. This product is very cost effective, as one bottle lasts for 2 months. The only criticism I have is that the application, putting the dropper into the mouth and holding the liquid there for a minute before swallowing, is slightly messy. This hasn't put me off and I have reordered a repeat dose as well as recommended it to friends.''

'The complex of HA-PL (named Haplex) was prepared by film dispersion and sonication method, its physico-chemical properties were identified by infrared spectra and differential scanning calorimetry (DSC). The oral absorption of Haplex was studied. Thirty-two healthy rats were divided into 4 groups randomly: (1) a normal saline (NS) control group; (2) an HA group; (3) a mixture group and (4) a Haplex group. After intragastric administration, the concentration of HA in serum was determined.'' ''The physico-chemical properties of Haplex were different from HA or PL or their mixture. After Haplex was administered to rats orally, the serum concentration of HA was increased when compared with the mixture or HA control groups from 4 h to 10 h (P<0.05). The DeltaAUC0-12 h of Haplex was also greater than that of the other three groups (P<0.05).'' ''The method of film dispersion and sonication can prepare HA and PL complex, and PL can enhance the oral absorption of exogenous HA.'' World J Gastroenterol (2007)
