Bioactive Collagen Peptides (BCP®stimulate
 body’s own collagen metabolism

Collagen is a major component of the human body. About 30 % of our total body protein is collagen. Collagen is crucial for mobile joints, stable bones, healthy muscles, strong ligaments and tendons, smooth skin, glossy hair and healthy finger nails. It is one of the primary structural proteins of connective tissues and also abundant in blood vessels, intervertebral discs, the blood-brain barrier, the cornea, dentin and the intestinal wall – a vital component of our whole body.

Bioactive Collagen Peptides (BCP®) stimulate collagen metabolism

GELITA Bioactive Collagen Peptides (BCP®) are a composition of different specific peptides optimized for specific physiological benefits. The peptides are derived from a highly controlled production process of collagen which is determined by hydrolysation conditions. As a result, GELITA Bioactive Collagen Peptides differ in physiological functionality. They are optimized to maximize stimulation of the human cell types involved in collagen biosynthesis.

The effect of collagen peptides on increased extracellular matrix synthesis is based on two mechanisms:

1) Supply of typical collagen amino acids as valuable building blocks

2) Stimulate cell synthesis
