The Fascia Fix Collagen Peptide Complex (CPC) The Fascia Fix Collagen Peptide Complex is a powerful blend of specific proteins, vitamins, and collagen peptides needed to build, maintain, and repair fascia. Physical trauma, nutrient deficiencies, and the aging process contribute to a loss of structural integrity in fascia, skin, bones, nails, hair and joints. These factors may slow wound healing, promote osteoarthritis and result in excess signs of aging, including wrinkles, dry skin, loss of skin elasticity and age spots. Supports maintenance of healthy fascia, bones, joints, tendons and ligaments Supports repair and renewal of aging skin Contributes to strong, thick hair and nails Facilitates wound healing May delay the progression of osteoarthritis and exercise-induced joint damage The Fascia Fix Collagen Peptide Complex is designed to support the formation of collagen, the primary structural component of fascia. Collagen is a structural protein, composed primarily of the amino acids glycine, proline, hydroxyproline and hydroxylysine. Exposure to UV light, results in free radical damage to the underlying collagen matrix, leading to fine lines and wrinkles. Because of the small size of the collagen peptides in The Fascia Fix CPC, the body receives a signal to increase its endogenous production of collagen. Studies have demonstrated the beneficial effect of orally supplemented collagen peptides on skin elasticity. The Fascia Fix CPC also contains ingredients that support the production of hyaluronic acid (HA), and glycosaminoglycan (GAG) found in fascia, joints and skin. Additional Highlights: Vitamin C (as Ascorbic Acid): is required for collagen synthesis. This antioxidant may help reduce the UV light-induced oxidative damage that leads to skin aging and pigmentation. Glutamine: The amino acid glutamine stimulates the synthesis of collagen. Glucosamine Sulfate: Slows joint degeneration and prevents wrinkles and sagging skin, Glucosamine also increases collagen synthesis. Glucosamine strengthens joint cartilage for the prevention and regression of osteoarthritis Aloe Vera (Aloe barbadensis): Aloe is well-known for its ability to heal wounds both internally and externally. Aloe improves hyaluronic acid in the skin and joints and assists in the synthesis of collagen. Biotin:. Biotin deficiency has been implicated in hair loss, eczema, and severely dry skin. Biotin plays a role in fatty acid synthesis, which contributes to the production of sebum, lubricating and protecting skin and hair. Silicon (from Bamboo Extract): Next to iron and zinc, silica is the most abundant trace mineral in the body. It is instrumental for wound healing and bone formation. Silica is concentrated in bone, fascia, skin, hair, arteries, and nails.
