Pineapple, Cinnamon & Oats – Simple Smoothie That Strengthen Tendons & Knee Ligaments


What Is Tendons & Ligaments?

Tendons are thick cords that join your muscles to your bones. These tough yet flexible bands of fibrous tissue attach the skeletal muscles to the bones they move. Essentially, tendons enable you to move; think of them as intermediaries between muscles and bones.

Though similar to tendons, ligaments connect bone to bone and help to stabilize joints they surround. They are composed mostly of long, stringy collagen fibers that create bands of tough, fibrous connective tissue. Ligaments are slightly elastic, so they can be stretched and gradually lengthen, increasing flexibility.

Your body’s structure is made up of many joints, the knees carry the most important function. You’re able to keep a straight posture, jump, walk, stand, and run, all because of your knees. As time goes by, they suffer many injuries, wounds and hits and become damaged and loose. Their tendons and ligaments become less flexible and natural lubrication is lost.
