INGREDIENT BENEFITS

Hyaluronic Acid Extract

Mobilee® is a patented, high-molecular-weight hyaluronic acid (HA), which supports the viscoelastic, lubricating properties of synovial fluid. In addition, it contains collagen and other glycosaminoglycans (GAGs) to help support skin and joint health.

Specific Precursors

Collagen is comprised of and formed from the amino acids proline and lysine. Lysine is an essential amino acid the body relies on adequate dietary intake for its involvement in the synthesis of connective tissues. Proline is well-known for its involvement in the triple helix of collagen—it is regularly spaced with glycine in the amino acid sequence of collagen fiber, which together comprise about 50% of total collagen sequencing.

Targeted Cofactors

Zinc is an essential trace mineral that supports immune function. Requirements are highest when the body’s repair system is most active. Manganese helps in the development and maintenance of bones. Nutritional co-factors that help support collagen formation include zinc, vitamin C and amino acids.
