Supporting the Immune System with Bioactive Collagen Peptides®

It would be hard to find a topic that has attracted more global attention than immune health during the last year. People are increasingly doing as much for their overall wellbeing as they possibly can in the light of the ongoing pandemic, especially with supplements. This is clearly reflected in the significant sales uptick for vitamins and minerals. However, within that category, there is another popular nutrient that may come as a bit of a surprise to some: protein and, in particular, collagen.

White Tissue Part 2 - BODYBALANCE®: Optimise Yourself

In the first instalment of our “White Tissue” series, we talked about TENDOFORTE® – specific Bioactive Collagen Peptides® (BCP®s) for tendons and ligaments.

This, of course, isn’t something that’s only of interest to a specific kind of athlete. It’s a basic goal that unites most sportspeople – professional or not.

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®.

In the past — and with good cause — we’ve talked a lot about collagen. And if you follow our blog, you already know that collagen is the most abundant protein in the human body. Making up 30 per cent of the body’s total protein content, it can be found in bones, joints, ligaments and muscle fascia. And what do all of these body parts have in common? They are all especially important for active people. There’s just a word of caution, though: sports-induced overuse can actually lead to collagen being broken down faster than it can be synthesized!
