White Tissue: Connecting the Whole Body - Part 1: TENDOFORTE®

In this series of blogposts, we want to introduce the concept of “white tissue” and how it is connected with each of our Bioactive Collagen Peptides® (BCP®s). For part one, we’ll start with the specific collagen peptides TENDOFORTE®.

A Prototype to Take on Bone Health

When two or more companies cooperate, the combined benefits and advantages are often much more than the sum of the individual parts.
