Ligaments and tendons, which connect joints together and connect muscles to bones, are formed from bands of connective tissue. Healthy Ligaments and Tendons is ideal for supporting flexible, elastic connective tissue formation, especially in the hands, wrists, elbows, shoulders, knees, and heels.

Ligaments and tendons are both made of fibrous connective tissue (collagen). Ligaments connect bones to bones, while tendons connect muscles to bones. Ligaments give structure and hold the human skeleton together (for example, ligaments in the spine help us stand up) while tendons allow us to move. The Achilles tendon, connecting the calf muscle to the heel, lets your feet flex in order to walk, run, or jump. Certain key nutrients, including manganese, help with collagen and connective tissue formation to support proper function of ligaments and tendons.
B Vitamins (B6, B12 and Niacin)
The B vitamins provide important support for nerve function, as well as being important for amino acid formation. Amino acids are the building blocks of proteins, which in turn, are used to form muscles, ligaments and tendons.1 This formula uses these nutrients in their active form P-5-P (B6), methylcobalamin (B6) so that no conversion by the liver is necessary before they are utilized by the body.
Trace Minerals: Magnesium, Manganese and Zinc
Magnesium aids in muscle relaxation, as well as promoting bone formation. In addition, magnesium boosts the activity of P-5-P (vitamin B6).2 Manganese activates an enzymes called prolidase, which is essential in collagen formation.3 Zinc is needed for protein synthesis and is especially important in tissue formation.4
Bromelain has been shown to promote the formation of cells found in the tendons, called tenocytes.5 It has also been shown in clinical studies to support a healthy inflammatory response.6
Vitamin C is required for collagen synthesis, the type of tissue used to form ligaments and tendons.7
Boswellic acids, important compounds found in boswellia, have been shown to support a healthy inflammation response.8
