Description

Over time lifestyle factors can cause reduced elasticity in cartilage, tendons, ligaments and skin. This not only leads to wrinkles and decreased dermal matrix, but to soften tissue and joint discomfort. FORTIGEL® in studies stimulate collagen regeneration and type II collagen and aggrecan. Which all helps to maintain healthy connective tissue. Most therapies simply block joint pain and connective tissue discomfort. And in doing so inhibit the regeneration and elongation of specific precursors. These such as polysaccharides, and deplete nutrients such as vitamin C and magnesium that maintain joint and connective tissue health. FORTIGEL®, TendoActive® and Mobilee® protect and preserve cartilage, tendons, ligaments, intervertebral discs and fascia. These patented ingredients support the natural healing process and maintain the structure of connective tissues.

Clinical Applications

  • Protects and Promotes Connective Tissue Biosynthesis
  • Supports the Body’s Processes of Cartilage, Tendon, Ligament and Fascia Self-Repair
  • Contributes to Joint Lubrication, Joint Cushioning, and Normal Connective Tissue Inflammatory Response
  • Maintains Normal Rejuvenation of Healthy Hair, Skin and Nails
Collagen Hydrolysate

Collagen Hydrolysate as FORTIGEL®, is backed by more than fifteen studies, provides bioactive collagen peptides (BCPs), which contain high concentrations of specific peptides that comprise connective tissue. The precise length of the short-chain peptides and their low average molecular weight allows easy absorption, transport and accumulation to target connective tissue. FORTIGEL® provides 5 grams of hypoallergenic protein per serving from a sustainable protein source without the risk of oxalate kidney stones from higher-dose collagen products. Clinical studies on FORTIGEL® demonstrate joint and tendon health benefits.

Hyaluronic Acid Extract

Hyaluronic Acid Extract as Mobilee®, is a patented rooster comb extract rich in high molecular weight hyaluronic acid (HA), which is responsible for the viscoelastic, lubricating properties of synovial fluid. This extract also contains collagen and other glycosaminoglycans (GAGs). Hyaluronic acid also plays a role in the biophysical, biochemical and cell regulation processes in joint synovial tissues. Scientific evidence shows Mobilee® supports chondrocytes and synovial cell function, and is two to four times more active than regular HA in supporting synovial fluid health. The latest clinical research includes HA in proactive and maintenance approaches to joint care and supports normal range-of-motion. Research suggests Mobilee® supports the quality of synovial fluid by positively influencing synovial HA concentration, and by reducing the expression of degradative factors in synovial fluid.

Type I Collagen and Mucopolysaccharides

Type I Collagen and Mucopolysaccharides as TendoActive®, is a combination of type I collagen and mucopolysaccharides. Adult tendons, ligaments and fascial tissue are comprised mainly of type I collagen molecules organized into structural units. The molecular structure and organization of tendon, ligament and fascial collagen fibrils are key determinants in the ability of these tissues to endure mechanical force and fuel self-repair. While collagen provides structure and strength, mucopolysaccharides is the “glue” that holds them together and allows them to stretch, flex, bend and maintain their resilience. Mucopolysaccharides is a critical component of extracellular matrix and is important in maintaining structural integrity, lubrication and spacing of collagen fibers. Furthermore, mucopolysaccharides increases collagen and non-collagenous protein synthesis in cultures of bovine tenocytes and ligament cells. TendActive® has been shown to be efficacious in medial and lateral epicondyle tendon patients. For instance, Achilles tendon patients and plantar fascia patients.

Cofactor

Collagen production is provided by vitamin C and magnesium in the highest bioavailable form as Albion TRAACS® Magnesium Bisglycinate Chelate. Vitamin C not only protects connective tissue from free radical damage. However, it is critical for peptide folding and tri-helical peptide pro-collagen fiber formation before they are exported from the cytoplasm for final fiber trimming. Magnesium also plays a critical role as a cofactor for every enzyme involved in collagen formation. In addition, to balancing MMP and TIMP enzyme activity for optimal degradation and formation.
