The right diet

A diet with enough protein and vitamin C is important to provide enough nutrients for your tendons. These raw materials play a role in the production of collagen. The production of collagen is important because tendons are largely made up of collagen .

Proteins can be found in fish, beans, chicken and eggs. For sufficient vitamin C you should eat fruits and vegetables.

Food supplements
