Collagen is an important element of the human body – some 30% of body proteins are collagen. Various specific collagen-producing cells are found everywhere in the skin, joint cartilage, bones, tendons and ligaments. Research shows that GELITA Bioactive Collagen Peptides® (BCP) are optimized to maximize the stimulating effect on specific cells in the body.
With increasing age, the cells’ production of collagen decreases. The consequences are wrinkles, joint pain, a decrease in muscle strength and a reduction in bone density. Taking BCP with high bioavailability, as developed by GELITA, stimulates the collagen metabolism of the body and helps it to remain strong, flexible and attractive. Specific collagen peptides offer advantages for certain parts of the body because studies show that different cell types react differently to collagen peptides. “We want to place all our Bioactive Collagen Peptides® on a solid scientific basis, which is why there are two to four clinical studies for each product,” says Oliver Wolf, Global Head of B2B Marketing at GELITA. For example, studies have proven that VERISOL® counteracts skin aging, FORTIGEL® promotes the regeneration of joint cartilage, and TENDOFORTE® strengthens ligaments and tendons. All the studies are placebo-controlled, double-blind and randomized and are carried out by independent renowned institutes such as the Australian Institute of Sport (AIS), the Institute of Sport and Sports Science at the University of Freiburg, Germany, or the Department of Dermatology at the Christian-Albrecht University of Kiel, Germany. “GELITA has made a name for itself as the scientific leader in the industry, because no other company in our industry initiates more studies than we do,” says Wolf. For GELITA customers, the studies provide an additional sales argument. Consumers are more likely to choose products whose effects have been scientifically proven.
