About amino acids

The Bones Vitalis products have been developed from the view that physical independence leads to better quality of life. A causal approach has been the central starting point.

Our products contain sophisticated amino acids (proteins), vitamin (vit. c, folate) and minerals (manganese, zinc) which among others:

     check_circleare good for the production / build up of cartilage (in the joints)

     check_circleaid the normal formation of connective tissue

     check_circleplay a role in bone production

     check_circlecontribute to normal amino acid synthesis and normal protein synthesis

Amino acid compounds (proteins)

Amino acid and protein synthesis

Nutrition contains proteins. Proteins consist of amino acids. In digestion, the amino acids are released from nutrition under the influence of enzymes. The amino acids pass through the intestines and the portal vein to the liver. Some of the amino acids will leave the liver unchanged, some will be converted into other amino acids (transamination).

From the released amino acids, the organism can build its own specific proteins. The amino acid compounds stimulate the cells to produce and build new proteins (collagen). Connective tissues such as bones, muscles, tendons, cartilage (fibrous), ligaments, joint capsules, articular cartilage (hyaline), consist largely of collagen. The production of proteins within an organism is called protein synthesis.

 Protein synthesis

In connective tissue, the fibroblast is the active cell to which ribosomes attach which ensure protein synthesis. In cartilage the chondroblast is responsible for this, in bone tissue the osteoblast (chondroblasts and osteoblasts are actually specialized fibroblasts).

Chrondoblasts produce the active form of the cartilage cells as they can synthesize all components of the cartilage matrix (chrondoblasts are forerunners of the chondrocytes, the actual cartilage cells).

Osteoblasts make the organic components of the bone matrix. Osteoblasts produce collagen, proteoglycans and glycoproteins (osteoblasts transform into osteocytes, the most common cells in the bone tissue).

Fibroblasts are the major cells of the connective tissue. Fascia is a particular connective tissue that surrounds muscles, bones and joints. Fascia is one of three types of connective tissue. The other two are: ligaments and tendons. Fibroblasts are responsible for the synthesis of all elements of the extracellular matrix. Thus, both the collagen (non-elastic fiber that provides for the firmness of the tissue), elastic and reticular fibers such as the glycosaminoglycans and the glycoproteins of the ground substance (matrix).
