Collagen stability molecules (type I) for skin, tendons, bones
Connective tissue gives the body support and protection at the same time. The crucial molecules that are produced in the connective tissue cells are collagen fibers. They have a similar function in the body as the steel girders in a skyscraper. The collagen types I and IV play a particular role in the body. Collagen Type I is mainly responsible for the healthy functioning of the skin , tendons, bones and teeth.
The Dr. Rath Research Institute investigated how certain micronutrient combinations affect the production of collagen type I by increasing collagen production in human skin fibroblasts.
The study concerning the formation of collagen stability molecules (type I) showed that micronutrient supplementation caused a significant increase. In two of the tested micronutrient combinations, collagen formation increased almost fourfold compared to one control group (without the addition of micronutrients) and even sixfold in another control group.
