Strong bones: fighting osteoporosis
Collagen isn’t just an important building block of cartilage and skin; it’s also a major component of bone tissue. FORTIBONE© comprises specific collagen peptides that can help to stimulate bone matrix synthesis and mineralization. Clinical studies have demonstrated an increase in total bone mass after collagen peptide treatment. Moreover, in osteoporotic patients it could be demonstrated that a daily intake of collagen peptides leads to significantly reduced bone degradation processes and significantly decreased re-fracture rate. Scientific studies: GELITA conducts intensive preclinical and clinical research to further examine the connection between nutrition and bone health. Based on this research, innovative collagen products to increase bone density are being developed.
Applications: Food supplements, functional food products, granulates, ready-to-drink concentrates, sports drinks.
