Many people complain of their “joint laxity”, of having their joints creaking or of how quickly they tire when walking.
Connective tissue is the main tissue component of the organism.
It keeps the organs and numerous bones of the body together, anchoring them firmly to their respective positions. The connective tissue includes, for example, ligaments, tendons, cartilages and joint capsules, skin and hair.
The connective tissue
The connective tissue is made up of fibers and intercellular substance, mostly formed by GAG (glycosaminoglycans). Its function is to act as intercellular cement, to allow the body to resist traction and pressure.
It is precisely the glycosaminoglycans that give the connective tissue its elasticity, as well as ensuring the transport of nutrients and the disposal of waste.
The characteristics of the connective tissue change throughout life and with sport. Intercellular cement decreases, as does the percentage of water and nutrients.
The composition of glycosaminoglycans (GAGs) also changes over time. This can lead to a loss of joint elasticity, but also to unpleasant joint problems. Joint diseases, such as rheumatism, arthrosis and arthritis, are particularly painful. People affected by it lose mobility in whole or in part, with inevitable repercussions on the quality of life.
The health of the connective tissue is fundamental! Our diet is often deficient in glycosaminoglycans. To maintain the vitality of the joints, it is therefore recommended to regularly take food supplements rich in GAG.
Revive with supplements
According to numerous clinical studies, some supplements rich in these substances and containing an extract of Perna canaliculus (the green mussel from New Zealand), have given good results in the treatment of joint diseases.
The Perna canaliculus extract is an extraordinary natural source of nutrients and organic constituents of marine origin. It is rich in omega 3 fatty acids, contains 18 important amino acids, 10 minerals, trace elements and enzymes and can be taken regularly, even for several months.
