Also found in Hatched!™ Eggshell:
Phosphorus- The mineral Phosphorous is essential for life. One of its primary functions is aiding in the formation of strong teeth and bones. It also affects how the body manages carbohydrates and fats. Phosphorous helps make protein for the growth, maintenance, and repair of cells and tissues.
Magnesium- The Trace Mineral Magnesium is used medicinally as antacids and to help prevent seizures, or convulsions, such as in Eclampsia. It helps to maintain normal nerve and muscle function, supports a healthy immune system, keeps the heart beat steady, and helps bones remain strong. It also helps regulate blood glucose levels and aid in the production of energy and protein.
Amino acids- In the form of proteins, amino acids comprise the second-largest component (water is the largest) of human muscles, cells and other tissues. Many amino acids are used to synthesize other molecules, for example, the amino acid Glycine. Glycine is a sweet tasting crystalline substance and the principle amino acid within cane sugar. It's found in high concentrations within the skin, connective tissues and muscle tissues. Glycine is one of the amino acids necessary for the biosynthesis of creatine. Creatine provides muscles with a direct energy source and helps to build muscle tissue and strength. It's also helpful because it can help to prevent muscle degeneration.
Gelatin- Did you know that Gelatin is used by synchronized swimmers to hold their hair in place during their routines (it doesn't dissolve in cold water)? But, that's not why our birds need it in their diet. Gelatin is largely composed of the amino acid Glycine. This amino acid is needed not only for proper skin, feather (fur) and nail growth, but for optimal immune function and weight regulation. Gelatin acts as a digestive aid, as it can sooth and help heal the digestive track.
Collagen- Collagen is the most abundant protein in the human body and is the substance that holds the whole body together. It is found in the bones, muscles, skin and tendons, where it forms a scaffold to provide strength and structure. is most commonly found in the skin, bones and connective tissue within the body, providing structural support, strength and a degree of elasticity (in combination with elastin).
