Tendonitis? Get Visi's AC2 HCP!


According to Web MD, "Tendonitis is an inflammation or irritation of a tendon." Tendons are the thick fibrous cords that attach a muscle to a bone. Tendonitis is most often caused by repetitive, minor impact on the affected area," or it may develop due to a "sudden more serious injury." The over utilization of any specific joint can lead to tendonitis, especially as a person ages, since the body's collagen production drops off after the age of 30.

Weekend Warriors, who often "over do it," are susceptible to tendonitis. Single sport specialized athletes often develop tendonitis, especially players, whose position causes them to repeatedly overuse certain joints. Baseball Pitchers and Volleyball players are two examples of athletes who, due to the repetitive use of their throwing and hitting arms, often develop tendonitis in their shoulders, elbows, knees, and ankles. They often have lower back pain/problems as well.

When diagnosed with Tendonitis, the routine protocol is to rest the affected joint, ice the injured area, take over the counter anti-inflammatory medication and/or apply topical anti-inflammatory gels. If the problem does not respond to these treatments, the following advanced treatment options are often prescribed: corticosteroid injections, physical therapy to improve range of motion in cases where the joint is frozen and surgery, if the injured area does not respond to the aforementioned treatment protocols.

Visi's Nufinna and Probita contain the highest bioavailable Hydrolyzed Collagen Protein featuring Collagen Types I - V. Tendons are predominantly composed of Collagen Type I. By supplementing with Nufinna and/or Probita, you are providing the body with the additional specific amino acid composition it needs to regenerate and heal tendon tissues. Collagen Types I - V are the predominant collagen types forming the skin, muscles, ligaments, cardiovascular system, all major organs, eyes, hair, nails, and more. Bone is comprised of 30% collagen, too!

The injured athletes I've introduced to Visi have had great results overcoming their various injuries faster. The post-surgical patients using Visi have also healed quicker by utilizing Visi's AC2 HCP. It really is amazing to experience the many benefits provided by Visi's Hydrolyzed Collagen Protein products!
