It is estimated that around 10 million people in the UK suffer from joint and muscle-related problems. The main joint tissues are tendons, ligaments, cartilages and spinal discs, and the main component of these is collagen - the production of which is supported by a number of important nutrients.

Collagen plays a significant role in maintaining flexibility about the joints, but ageing, wear and tear all reduce the amount of collagen present – indeed, collagen production decreases from the age of 25 years, at a rate of approximately 1.5% per year. Some nutrients, such as vitamin C, help to support the maintenance of the body's connective tissues.
