Hyaluronic Acid (HA) is a marker of degenerative joint disease (DJD).  Joint Disease is typically viewed as an old-animal disease, however the degeneration of joints can start early in life and not present clinically until later.  Using HA to detect when that degeneration begins, allows earlier intervention and more options to slow or stop the progression of joint disease.   Learn more.

Magnesium is an essential nutrient involved in numerous biological pathways, acting as a cofactor to ensure they run efficiently and effectively.  VDI provides patient-specific dosing guidelines to get patients to sufficiency.
