How does Euflexxa work?

The main active ingredient, hyaluronic acid (HA) is a natural substance found inside the human body. It's key properties are to keep the knee lubricated. HA naturally breaks down in the body during metabolism and is then replaced. However as we get older and our metabolism slows down, replacement of HA is less often which results in less lubrication around the joints that we use most frequently.

Euflexxa imitates the natural HA found in the human body. Available by prescription it is less invasive method compared to the traditional surgical methods. It is quick to administer and can be carried out at your local GP Surgery. Euflexxa is a safe alternative to non prescriptive medicine relievers that are not achieving the desired pain relief in patients.
