Pure Encapsulations Ligament Restore Product Information

Ligament Restore combines ingredients found naturally in tendons, ligaments and joints attempts to help strengthen and support the maintenance and natural repair processes of healthy connective tissue.*

Uses For Ligament Restore

Ligament, Tendon and Joint Health: Glucosamine attempts to help with the synthesis of proteoglycans, the molecules responsible for providing tendons, ligaments and cartilage their resiliency and strength. It may also help protect cartilage from the effects of mechanical stress. Sulfate, another component of proteoglycans, works synergistically with glucosamine to help with cartilage repair and regeneration. BioCell Collagen II® provides hydrolyzed and denatured low molecular weight type II collagen, the most abundant form in the joint matrix. Additionally, it provides a naturally occurring blend of hyaluronic acid (HA), chondroitin sulfate, glucosamine sulfate and amino acids to promote cartilage synthesis and joint integrity. To further encourage collagen formation, this formula includes l-lysine and l-proline. These amino acids are hydroxylated to form hydroxyproline and hydroxylysine, in a reaction involving vitamin C, forming the “glue” that holds collagen together. In the body, silica is found primarily in connective tissue and plays a role in collagen tissue formation. Devil’s claw and curcumin are included to support joint flexibility, function and comfort, in part by maintaining healthy eicosanoid metabolism.*
