Trace Elements and Minerals
Fascia & Nutrition Part 3 - Trace elements and minerals
There are other micronutrients that are important for healthy fascia in addition to vitamin C.
Trace minerals serve many functions. Some act as antioxidants such as copper, selenium, manganese, and zinc, protecting the body from long-term damage, and are responsible for the regeneration and supply of connective tissue cells as well as for the networking of collagen and elastin. Minerals such as magnesium, potassium, calcium or sodium support cell metabolism and growth and regulate the water-electrolyte balance. They're also responsible for supporting your blood system and are necessary for the healthy growth of certain hormones.

Zinc: Beef, hard cheese, walnuts, white beans, lentils
