Every day our joints undergo wear and tear, testing our body's ability to stay flexible. Now nutritional science offers help. Nutricology's Arthred Collagen Formula is an all - natural product clinically reported to nutritionally support healthy joint function. Arthred was originally developed in Germany from bovine cartilage, based on research showing its benefits for connective tissue. Today Arthred is patented and is recognized as a functional food - a food that can positively influence specific body functions. Arthred's patented formula consists of 19 amino acids bonded together in a short chain. These amino acids are the building blocks for joint cartilage. The potential benefits of Arthred may be felt in 3 months.
WARNINGS: Keep out of the reach of children.
NOTES: The Importance of Collagen
Collagen is the component of cartilage that provides its basic configuration, flexibility and strength. Ligaments, tendons, bones, skeletal muscle, skin, the digestive tract and the vasculature are held together by collagen. It is also a major component of hair, skin and nails. As we age, we lose the ability to make collagen. Additionally, nutritional inadequacy, exposure to toxins and the stressful challenges of modern life can cause collagen to break down, resulting in skin wrinkles and sags, thinning of the hair, stiffness and decreased flexibility of the joints, and reduced vibrancy and strength of the skin and nails.
Arthred hydrolyzed collagen is a unique protein, contaning high amounts of certain amino acids, including glycine, proline, hydroxyproline and arginine. These amino acids have been linked to improved body composition, healthy bone and connective tissue, better skin appearance, tissue anabolism, increased metabolism, growth hormone secretion and wound healing. Once it is absorbed through the intestines, hydrolyzed collagen increases the serum levels of these amino acids.
