Connective tissue gives our 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 our body as the steel girders in a skyscraper.
The collagen types I and IV play a particular role in our body. Collagen Type I is mainly responsible for functional healthy skin, tendons, bones and teeth. How certain micronutrient combinations affect the production of collagen type I was investigated at Dr. Rath Research Institute by increasing collagen production by human skin fibroblasts.
The enquiry concerning the formation of collagen stability molecules (type I) showed a significant increase. In two of the tested micronutrient combination, collagen formation increased almost 4-fold compared to one control group (without the addition of micronutrients) and even 6-fold in another control group.
