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!
