Manganese activates enzymes that attach sugars to proteins and aids in the construction of collagen. It also supports bone health.6
Boron promotes bone health and helps maintain healthy muscles. It also enhances cognitive function and fine motor skills.
Copper is a component in important enzyme production. It is necessary for wound healing. Copper plays an important role in collagen formation and structural integrity of bone, cartilage, tendons, and ligaments. It combines with zinc to form a powerful antioxidant. Copper is necessary for the formation of hemoglobin in the blood.7
Zinc is necessary for the transfer of carbon dioxide in red blood cells. It is involved in the synthesis of RNA, DNA, proteins and the calcification of bones. Zinc plays a critical role in the development and function of our reproductive organs and assists in maintaining healthy tissues. Zinc combines with copper to form superoxide dismutase, a powerful antioxidant.
