Sports and wellness products are in greater demand today than ever before. People want to do something for themselves, taking care of their health and wellbeing, and looking after their appearance. That’s why products focusing on sports nutrition, beauty-from-within, and healthy ageing are most in demand. At this year’s Hi and Ni (booth 8E41) in Frankfurt, GELITA offers customized and functional solutions to help manufacturers make the most of current trends.


Whether it’s muscle, skin, bone or joint health-related, it is essential that the promised functionality of active ingredients is based on credible science and has been proven in high-quality clinical studies. GELITA is the market leader in collagen peptide science, and its Bioactive Collagen Peptides (BCP®) have been tested in numerous preclinical and clinical studies to confirm both their beneficial effects and safety.


GELITA’s latest offering, TENDOFORTE®, consists of specific collagen peptides that keep tendons and ligaments strong and flexible. Not only do they reduce the incidence of injuries, they also allow a faster return-to-training. With its special active profile, TENDOFORTE® is a useful addition to the existing collagen peptide range, which enables the development of tailor-made sports and active nutrition products with a focus on muscle growth (BODYBALANCE®), strong bones (FORTIBONE®) and joint health (FORTIGEL®).


With VERISOL®, GELITA has a product in its portfolio that is particularly suited to beauty-from-within applications, as it helps to substantially increase skin elasticity and hydration by stimulating skin metabolism. At the HiE trade show, visitors are very welcome to taste “Beauty bars” with VERISOL® or “Recovery bars” with TENDOFORTE®, which combine great taste and texture with functional properties.


GELITA will also present various innovative product concepts: From BCP® fortified gummies and delicious bars with collagen protein, to a Bioactive Sports Broth, which can be sampled at its booth.
