Dr. Petito has been viewed as a renowned expert on collagen and glycosaminoglycan (GAGs) chemistry. This chemistry is the core of all Hymed® products since 1995.
Forming The Hymed® Group
For over 50 years, Dr. Petito has been closely involved in the discovery of uses and manufacturing processes of these compounds. His expertise and innovations led to the formation of Hymed®, a research and development company founded in 1995, which is a leading manufacturer of collagen, hyaluronic acid, and GAGs products with applications in wound care and joint support for advancing human and animal health.
His vision has been to provide cutting-edge chondroprotective agents which support and/or enhance the connective tissue matrix in humans and animals through topical and injectable solutions. Hymed® is proud to be a leading supplier of advanced collagen and glycosaminoglycan wound care and joint support products.
Applied Nutritionals, LLC was formed to provide nutritional product support for these applications, as supplementing topical with oral use has been shown to provide better patient outcomes.
Research, Development and Distribution
Under Dr. Petito’s leadership, Hymed® has produced 21 products and formed strong partnerships for distribution around the world. Numerous patents have been awarded to Dr. Petito, for his innovation in growing, protecting, and healing cells and tissues. His research has helped the field of medicine with cutting edge healing agents that treat wound and connective tissue related injuries more efficiently than ever before.
Dr. Petito combines ingredients which have a synergistic effect in Hymed’s formulas to optimize new cell development and repair. The result is products that perform with exceptional efficacy. Dr. Petito’s philosophy is “that which is indigenous to the body, has benefit in its ability to heal itself.” A powerful ingredient, “hyCURE®,” is a specialized hydrolyzed collagen that has been added to many of Dr. Petito’s formulae with widespread recognition for its healing abilities.
Future Work of Dr. Petito
His development of proprietary ingredients includes very targeted factors that contribute to the consistency of Hymed’s products and their effective results. Dr. Petito continues to work with collagen and GAGs chemistry for the development of other unique products to be introduced in the near future.
