Staying healthy and in charge of one’s health has become a leading for all. GELITA experts will join the NPEW Virtual and explain how GELITA Bioactive Collagen Peptides® (BCP®) can support athletes to reach their goals. 

Strong ligaments and tendons, bones, and joints – the so-called White Tissue – are a vital precondition for athletic performance. BCP® support this White Tissue and thus help to build stamina, strength, athletic agility and finally improve performance. 

New research has demonstrated how important the white tissue is for a healthy immune system. These findings have prompted a new member to the GELITA Bioactive Collagen Peptides® roster – IMMUPEPT™. Other additions include specific gelatines for softgel, hard-capsule or gummy delivery systems, which can define when and where in the body for the softgels open to release their fill, provide capsules with reduced cross-linking and longer shelf life, and allow palatable delivery systems in the form of fortified gummies.

Collagen continues to be highly sought after for sports nutrition formulations. GELITA’s roster of Bioactive Collagen Peptides® will help keep players healthy by addressing condition specific needs. GELITA’s ingredients are clinically substantiated for body toning and muscle strength (BODYBALANCE®); improving bone mass density and supporting bone stability and flexibility (FORTIBONE®); supporting joint health and mobility (FORTIGEL®); increasing the health and quality of ligaments and tendons (TENDOFORTE®).

Other products include GELITA’s IMMUPEPT™, which will support immune health; VERISOL® for improving skin elasticity, nail growth, and wrinkle and cellulite reduction; and PETAGILE® collagen peptides for the maintenance of a pet’s joint health, supporting their mobility.

Softgels are a preferred delivery method for all kinds of nutrients and active ingredients. By choosing the right type of gelatine from the GELITA release profile portfolio the specific effect, timing, and duration of the fill release can be modified to tie in with consumer needs. The latest addition to the portfolio is GELITA® EC, the first and only gelatine product for true enteric performance of softcaps.

GELITA’s line-up of gelatines that provide excellent fill release performance for soft capsules, including GELITA® RXL for reduced cross-linking and improved shelf stability; GELITA® RXL R2 for faster release of the active fill and custom-designed standard gelatines for optimum performance in hard and soft-capsules. 

And, with gummies emerging as a valuable player in the Health & Nutrition space, GELITA offers solutions and technical know-how for this delivery format including starch-free moulding.
