Hyaluronic acid has been expanding ever since it was discovered nearly 100 years ago with focused research on musculoskeletal care, the immune system, the GI tract, skin and cosmetics, the aging process and longevity, eye health, bone strength, and most recently as an antiviral.

About the Founders
Doug Kiburz, MD
I have been using hyaluronan supplements (HA) in our horses and dogs for decades and indeed many supplements used in humans evolved from the canine and equine world. Being in the Orthopaedic profession I am always looking for ways for patients to help themselves with musculoskeletal problems beyond surgery or prescription medication.
The exciting benefits of HA are that it supplements our own endogenous HA, has few side effects or allergic reactions, and is effective. I don’t recommend anything I don’t try myself and my family (wife, dogs, cats, horses) and I have been using oral HA products for several years. But advances and improvements are made in every field and the TOP SHELF® specifications are a giant step in quality and value.

Over a decade ago I was working in my pharmacy in Warsaw, MO and an orthopedic surgeon in my practice area called me and asked me to do him a favor. He had been recommending an OTC product to his patients to help them with their joint problems. He explained he first started using it on his horses and they had immediate and dramatic results and he knew it could not be the placebo effect since that doesn’t work on animals. He had contacted the manufacturer and asked if the product could be used in both animals and humans and he would like to test it in humans if safe and OK’d by FDA.
From this early conversation, I started selling this liquid hyaluronan product and have continued for over 10 years. Several years ago I asked a chemist if he could develop a hyaluronan product in powder form. that keeps it fresher longer with a much longer shelf life (3 years), and is more affordable.
