To maintain healthy tendons, it is important to have an active lifestyle which includes constant and of moderate intensity motor activity. That, combined with a proper diet, ensures the physiological blood perfusion of tendons which are low metabolism tissues. Due to repeated overload ("overuse"), tendons lose their structural characteristics and lose the normal type I collagen architecture and it is replaced by amorphous material. There is a physiological blood perfusion reduction in the tendon and inflammation arises. These conditions are the basis of a tendinopathy recognizing overuse as a trigger cause in about 95% of cases.
L-arginine-alpha-ketoglutarate, Methylsulfonylmethane (MSM), Hydrolyzed Collagen Type I, Bromelain, Vinitrox™ and Vitamin C
Tenosan® is useful in supplying those actives especially in case of increased organic demand. Vitis Vinifera, present in Vinitrox™, contributes to the normal functioning of microcirculation. Vitamin C contributes to the normal formation of collagen
Each sachet of Tenosan® contains:
2 sachets daily for 2 months, once in the morning and once in the evening before bedtime.
L-Arginine is an aminoacid which works as a precursor of Nitric Oxide. Nitric Oxide, which is produced in the vascular endothelium, increases the local blood flow.
Vinitrox™ is a new generation active ingredient with a high content of polyphenols (Vitis Vinifera).
The grapes seeds extract (Vitis vinifera), present in Vinitrox™, contributes to the normal function of the microcirculation.
Hydrolyzed Collagen Type I is the most important component of tendons and represent 65-68% of the extracellular matrix. Hydrolysed Collagen is produced through a process of purification, which makes this molecule more easily absorbable by the body.
Methylsulphonilmethane (MSM), an organosulfur compound, is an essential nutrient for the synthesis of the major cellular structures and is a key element in preserving the integrity and elasticity of the connective tissue.
In case of sulfur deficiency, the body is not able to generate healthy and, above all, permeable cells. A physiological cell permeability promotes the proper absorption of nutrients and the elimination of toxins which are formed within the cells
Bromelain is a proteolytic enzyme extract from the stem of the pineapple.
Vitamin C is a water soluble vitamin, essential for the human being.
Among other activities, vitamin C contributes to normal collagen formation for the normal functioning of bone and cartilage.
