Tendons are built of collagen, and the strength of the collagen mainly depends on what you eat. If the diet doesn’t contain enough proteins, and minerals person might have problems with injuries, healing and even aging. Provide proper amount of collagen and proteins to your body, so it can build the much needed collagen.
Tendonitis may be caused by collagen, mineral or some other nutrient deficiency. The best thing you can do for your tendons if you are experiencing the pain and discomfort is to look for good supplements.
