Natural plant anthocyanidins are a group of components found in dark skinned fruits. Scientists studying these particular plant derivatives have focused much of their work around the role they play in helping to support collagen. Collagen is the most abundant protein in the body - it . is the protein that forms connective fibres in tissues such as skin. ligaments. cartilage, muscles and capillaries. The research shows that anthocyanidins can help to reinforce and preserve collagen in the body. There are many health problems that can result from compromised or weakened collagen, including worn joints, easy bruising and non-medical fluid retention resulting from ’leaky’ capillary walls. So knowing that the materials found in Double Strength Colladeene help build and restore collagen makes it an invaluable addition to many supplement regimes.
