My vetinary surgeon prescribed a Joint medicine containing Hyaluronic Acid for my cat after he repaired a fractured patella to prevent arthritis. As I had been knocked down by a reversing car and sustained a Tibial Plateau fracture (no surgery required) but was in a cast for 12 weeks I enquired whether I could take it to prevent arthritis in my knee. He replied that he was taking it to prevent arthritis in his knees which he had previously fractured. So what are the research findings results for taking Hyaluronic Acid internally to prevent or alleviate arthritis in joints?
Thank you, Kind regards.
