Connective tissue

Strong connective tissue for firm and elastic skin

Strong connective tissue is very important for the body. It is best known as the ideal of beauty, as the term connective tissue is primarily associated with firm skin without wrinkles. To be precise, connective tissue is found throughout the body and functions as a supporting tissue for organs among other things.

Nevertheless, strong connective tissue is also the basis for firm and elastic skin. We at Vitaminexpress are aware of the great importance and offer you a large selection of products with which you can support your connective tissue in addition to a healthy diet and exercise.

Use vitamins to support the collagen production

Vitamins are needed in all areas of the body, e.g. as support for the immune system. Vitamins, which are also essential for collagen production, are important free radical scavengers. This means that they reduce oxidative stress, which is largely responsible for rapid skin ageing. [1]

Our products contain exactly the vitamins your body needs to produce collagen:

  • Vitamin C contributes to normal collagen formation, normal skin function and the protection of cells from oxidative stress and acts as a radical scavenger, which makes free radicals harmless.
  • Vitamin B contributes to the maintenance of normal skin and to the protection of cells from oxidative stress.
  • Vitamin E helps protect cells from oxidative stress. [2]

Our fascia pellets are particularly rich in high-quality vitamin C and also have other valuable ingredients with which they ensure the following effects:

  • Supplies the fascia with valuable vital substances
  • Increases the blood circulation
  • Can help prevent the fascia from sticking together
  • Supports the development and regeneration of connective tissue

Valuable minerals to support your connective tissue

Minerals are essential for the entire body. Some of them can help protect and strengthen your connective tissues. For example, you can benefit from the following minerals:

  • Copper contributes to the normal colouring (pigmentation) of the skin, can increase its elasticity and promote wound healing. [3] [4]
  • Manganese contributes to the normal formation of connective tissue and to the protection of cells from oxidative stress. [2]
  • Zinc is crucial for the build-up of collagen (important for the build-up of the skin), can support wound healing and promote skin regeneration. [5] [6]
  • Selenium has an antioxidant effect in the skin and can therefore protect against free radicals and premature skin ageing. [7]

The Vivid capsules from Vitaminexpress contain significantly more vitamins and vital substances. Support your skin, nails and hair with our product.

Benefit from the precisely matched ingredients of the Rutin capsules

Many plants, including St. John's wort, parsley and elderberry, use rutin as a natural protection against UV rays and germs. You can also use this effect for your skin - with our Rutin 500 mg capsules. We use rutin from the Japanese pagoda tree (Styphnolobium japonicum) which has antioxidant properties. [8]

Our rutin capsules also contain vitamin C and have a particularly high bioavailability.

Use herbal remedies to help protect your skin from oxidative stress

Herbal products have long been used to protect the skin from oxidative stress We also rely on this at Vitaminexpress, especially through the following ingredients:

  • Green tea extract: This contains so-called polyphenols, which can protect the skin from free radicals. In addition to this, the tea extracts can strengthen the skin's immune defences and inhibit inflammation. [9] [10] [11]
  • Grape seed extract: can actively support the wound healing in the skin. [12]

In this context, try our OPC capsules for the skin which has the following properties:

  • Contains high quality grape seed extract
  • Additional portion of vitamin C
  • Highly dosed with 150 mg per capsule

The positive effects of collagen on your skin barrier

Our collagen products support the connective tissue and therefore your skin barrier. For this, we rely on the following ingredients:

  • Biocell Collagen: The additional absorption of collagen improves the stability, moisture and elasticity of the skin. [13]
  • Vitamin C: contributes to normal skin function, to the protection of cells from oxidative stress as well as to normal collagen formation and acts as a radical scavenger.
  • Vitamin B: contributes to the maintenance of normal skin and to the protection of cells from oxidative stress.[2]
  • Copper: can increase the elasticity of the skin, improve wound healing and support pigmentation. [3] [4]
  • Zinc: supports skin renewal, promotes healing processes and is important for collagen production[5] [6]

Vitaminexpress offers you a wide range of collagen products:

  • Collactive capsules: The amino acids it contains can promote collagen formation and support your immune system.
  • Biocell Collagen: The multiple patented vital substance supplies your connective tissue with collagen type II and valuable trace elements.
  • Collagen powder: The valuable protein can make your skin appear more elastic, firm and smooth.

The Aqua products support the positive effects for your skin

Radiantly beautiful skin with the Aqua products from Vitaminexpress. This is mainly due to the following ingredients:

  • Hyaluronic acid: This is the most important building block for the supporting structure of the connective tissue and plays a diverse role in regeneration, immune defence, wound healing and rejuvenation of the skin [14] [15]
  • Silicon: promotes cell renewal, protects against infections and ensures stability and elasticity of the connective tissue. In addition to this, silicon helps bind moisture [16] [17]
