Faster, Higher and Stronger for Longer
GELITA presents Bioactive Collagen Peptides® portfolio for Sports Nutrition at Vitafoods Asia

GELITA Bioactive Collagen Peptides® can easily enrich a variety of convenient sports foods that are consumed around a training session. Such sports bars, drinks and gels support preparation and provide a competitive edge for athletes. They help those prone to injury or returning to play and those eager to boost their training effects.

Strong tendons for high endurance

TENDOFORTE® has been proven as a nutrition solution to support strong and flexible tendons and ligaments in athletes, contributing to high performance and fast return-to-training. It is also a nutritional intervention for tendon and ligament problems, such as overuse type of injuries, helping athletes to get back to sport and to their former performance level quicker and more safely.

Unrestricted mobility

FORTIGEL® comprises optimized collagen peptides that have been scientifically proven to stimulate the regeneration of cartilage tissue, providing cushioning to the joints. After oral administration, the collagen peptides stimulate the cartilage cells to increase the production of both collagen and proteoglycans — the two major components that make up almost 90% of cartilage dry mass.

Strong bones are the pillars of performance

FORTIBONE® stimulates osteoblast activity to increase the production of the extracellular bone matrix, which is the essential framework for calcium mineralization. In addition, they regulate the degenerative processes that affect bones by reducing osteoclast-based protease production. Hence, these ingredients supply the body with the basic components needed for a strong and stable bone structure, supporting overall bone stability and flexibility.

Quicker results keep motivation alive

BODYBALANCE® is boosting the effect of resistance training. Clinical studies have shown a significant decrease of fat mass and increase of muscle mass together with an improved muscle strength. It thus can support athletes and sportive people to achieve quicker results which keep them motivated and passionate about sports.

In brief:

    Collagen peptides designed to increase the strength and flexibility of ligaments and tendons, helping to stabilize the musculoskeletal system and considerably decrease the risk of injuries.
    A bioactive component proven to stimulate joint cartilage regeneration.
    Contributes to bone health by promoting the biosynthesis of the extracellular bone matrix.
    Contributes to body toning as it helps to increase muscle mass, to decrease body fat and to increase strength.
