Dr. Peter D'Adamo has designed Connectivar using a combination of two well-researched herbs, a bioflavonoid complex and one mineral. The mineral manganese helps to support ligament strength and helps to maintain joint stability. The flavonoid (antioxidant) content in Butchers Broom appears to help strengthen blood vessels, lessen capillary fragility, and sustains healthy circulation. Connectivar also contains Rutin-Hesperidin Complex, a bioflavonoid, that appears to work by improving healthy venous tone and helping to maintain normal capillary permeability. Gotu Kola, another ingredient, may enhance collagen synthesis.
