Our shoulders are very complex; it include cartilage, ligaments, three different bones, and a combination of muscles and tendons. These muscles and tendons work together as the rotator cuff. This surrounds the shoulder, providing support so you can have a wide range of motion in order for you to move your shoulder easily. The tendons are tough bands of connective tissue that are mostly made out of Collagen
. This connects muscle to its bone. Ligaments are tough bands of tissues around your joints that connect bone to bone. They give you joint support and limit movement so your don't 'twist' things. There are also six little fluid-filled sacks in the rotator cuff called bursa, that cushion the tendons so that they don't rub against your bone.
The Benefits of Collagen
Collagen exists in the human body in over 25 forms, but more than 90% is formed by Collagen Type 1. Collagen Type 1 and Type 3 are essential for the support of connective and structural tissues.
Together, these forms are the most abundant types of collagen in the body. InVite®’s Collagen Hx® is a powerful blend of these two types of Collagen. InVite®'s effective hydrolyzed collagen powder supplement is highly beneficial to support healthy joints
and muscles, as well as for the hair, skin and nails
Seventy percent of our skin is made of Collagen. However, the body’s natural supply of Collagen begins to decline at about age 25, causing wrinkles and other skin health issues
. Collagen production decreases at a rate of about 1.5% per year; that means by age 60, you’ve lost about half of your natural collagen supply! A superior Collagen supplement helps restore the body’s Collagen supply.†
InVite®’s unique Collagen Hx® powder supplement provides additional ingredients to support Collagen’s role in the body, including Silica from Horsetail Rush Stem Extract
and Boswellia Extract, that combines with Collagen and Vitamin D in the body to create the organic matrix of the bone, which calcium attaches to for bone strengthening. Silica also combines with Collagen to create hair, skin, nails, tendons, cartilage and ligaments. Boswellia helps with occasional aches and pains by mediating the normal inflammatory process.†
