The value of strong tendons and elastic ligaments
Do you know why archery bows used to be stringed with real tendons? Because there are very few natural complexes that are more elastic and, at the same time, have a high tear-resistance. In the human body, ligaments hold bones together whereas tendons bind muscles to bones. They are almost entirely composed of collagen and play crucial roles in mobility, stability and movement control.
Eventually, with time, our bodies produce less collagen. And, when ligaments and tendons lose their flexibility and elasticity, it affects us all. Athletes tend to notice this phenomenon as their bounce and take-off power reduce and their susceptibility to injury increases.
TENDOFORTE® active collagen peptides have been specifically designed to protect our musculoskeletal system and increase the elasticity of ligaments and tendons. This works best when combined with regular exercise and targeted training. Those who participate in particularly stress-intensive sports should take a preventive approach to and not wait until the first symptoms occur — because, by then, the damage is usually already considerable.
In the animal world, race horses have been supplemented with bioactive collagen peptides for years to maintain their competitiveness and, thus, their value. We too should think more about the value of our mobility.
TENDOFORTE® is suitable for a wide variety of products and dosage forms — including sports drinks, bars, instant powders and shots — and can be incorporated into a wide range of sports nutrition formulations. In particular, the nutritional value of formulas based on whey can be significantly upgraded with bioactive collagen peptides such as TENDOFORTE® or BODYBALANCE® .
