CholineFound in sources such as liver, eggs, meat and nuts.
Choline contributes to
- normal homocysteine and lipid metabolism
- the maintenance of normal liver function
Choline is an important water-soluble vitamin-like nutrient, that can either be built by the body or that is aborbed with the diet.
Chondroitin sulphateFound in sources such as sardines and gristly meat.
Chondroitin is found in normal cartilage tissue and joint fluid and is responsible for the ability of cartilage to withstand pressure.
Chondroitin consists of long sugar chains and forms huge molecules which constitute a large proportion of the cartilage mass.
Coenzyme Q10Found in sources such as meat, liver and fish.
Coenzyme Q10 is a fat-soluble substance, which resembles a vitamin. It plays a key role in the cell’s energy generation.
Coenzyme Q10 is also known as ubiquinone. Ubiquinone derives from the Latin word ubique (everywhere). Coenzyme Q10 can be built by the body , the production decreases with increasing age.
GlucosamineFound in sources such as shellfish (mainly in the shell) and meat.
Glucosamine is part of cartilage and synovial fluid.
Glucosamine is an amino sugar and one of the most abundant monosaccharides. It was first prepared in 1876 by the hydrolysis of chitin (from lobster shell) with concentrated hydrochloric acid.
Hyaluronic acidMainly found in cockscombs.
Hyaluronic acid has the ability to bind high amounts of water.
Hyaluronic acid is distributed widely throughout connective, epithelial, and neural tissues and in the vitreous body of the eye.
Collagen hydrolysateFound in food with gelatine.
Collagen is an important structural protein in animal and human bodies. It is found in skin, hair, tendons, cartilage and bones and affects the firmness of connective tissues and skin.
80% of skin and connective tissue consists of collagen. Collagen hydrolysate describes an enzymatically treated collagen.
CreatineFound in sources such as venison, lean meat andand wild caught fish
Creatine increases physical performance in successive bursts of short-term, high intensity exercise.*
Creatine supplies energy for muscles.
The beneficial effect is obtained with a daily intake of 3 g of creatine.
ProteinFound in sources such as milk and diary products, meat, fish, soya and nuts.
Protein contributes to
- a growth in muscle mass
- the maintenance of muscle mass and normal bones
Protein consists of amino acids. Eight amino acids are essential, they cannot be built by the body and have to be absorbed by daily nutrition. The recommend daily amount of protein for adults is 50 g.
