Pioneer in Collagen Protein


Protein is the quintessential nutrient for athletes, weekend warriors, and active people who want to maximize the impact of their training sessions. Comprising up to 30% of total protein content, collagen is the most abundant type of protein in the body and a main component of human connective tissues. It provides structure for living cells, energy for muscle contraction, and even promotes the synthesis of creatine.

Collagen in Sports Nutrition

Recent evidence confirms collagen is most effective when ingested orally.  In one of the first clinical trials to look at a nutritional intervention for connective tissue weaknesses, the oral ingestion of specific collagen peptides was shown to improve the extension properties of the finger joints, due to firmer ligaments. And while the overall health benefits of collagen supplementation have long been recognized, Bioactive Collagen Peptides® are particularly beneficial for sports nutrition applications.

TENDOFORTE®, specific Bioactive Collagen Peptides® from GELITA, is designed to increase the health and quality of ligaments and tendons. Pre-clinical and clinical trials show the positive effects of TENDOFORTE®, especially when combined with physical activity. The risk of injury decreases considerably, whilst flexibility improves. TENDOFORTE® significantly strengthens tendons and ligaments and more studies are underway.
