COLLAGEN KEEPING YOU YOUNG!
Collagen makes up 30% of our body’s totally protein, its’ crucial for:
Strong ligaments and tendons
Collagenous protein makes up nearly 70% of cartilage mass. Optimized specific collagen peptides such as FORTIGEL have been proven to activate the growth of new cartilage by stimulating cells helping to make the joints smooth and mobile.
The effectiveness of FORTIGEL has been scientifically research in 20 human intervention studies with more than 3,000 patients proving the health benefit of collagen supplementation in joint cartilage, bones, ligaments and tendons (4)
Scientific substantiated claims with regard to Joint Health:
Counteracts the progressive loss of cartilage tissue
Promotes joint health through a natural physiological pathway
Stimulates collagen Type II synthesis
Stimulates hyaluronic acid synthesis
Helps reduce exercise induced pain
Supports new formation of cartilage tissue mass (4)
When specific collagen peptides such as VERISOL are administered orally they influence skin collagen metabolism directly from the inside, it increases the skin moisture and delays the formation of wrinkles (1).
Scientific substantiated claims with regard to skin:
Increases skin firmness and elasticity (1)
Reduces wrinkles and fine lines (2)
Stimulate metabolism of collagen, proteoglycans and elastin in the (deeper) skin
Enhances skin smoothness and reduces the appearance of fine surface lines (3)
Offers nutrients for healthy skin
Rejuvenate skin from within (1)
Specific collagen peptides such as Fortibone stimulate bone cells to increase the synthesis of bone compartments such as collagen. They have a signalling effect on osteoblast to counterbalance the collagen degradation in the extracellular bone matrix, which is essential for the framework of bone mineralization. Collagen peptides also influence the degeneration processes in bones by reducing osteoclast activity, this results in a considerably higher synthesis of collagenous bone matrix (5)
Various clinical and pre-clinical research confirm bone health effect for collagen peptides.
Scientific substantiated claims with regard to Bone Health:
Stimulating bone matrix synthesis and mineralization
Supports bone mass increase and helps to decrease bone matrix degradation
Supports reduced bone degradation processes in osteopenic and osteoporotic patients (5)
