Collagen – The Body’s Protein!
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 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® stimulate collagen metabolism
GELITA BCP® (Bioactive Collagen Peptides®) include a range of specific peptides optimized for targeted health benefits. They directly stimulate the metabolism of target connective tissue cells involved in collagen biosynthesis. The peptides are derived from a highly controlled production process and characterized by their unique peptide fingerprint. GELITA Bioactive Collagen Peptides® also provide a number of physiological and technical benefits making them the perfect supplement to realize innovative product ideas in the fields of health, beauty and sports nutrition.
The benefits of Bioactive Collagen Peptides® to the extracellular matrix are based on two mechanisms:

FORTIGEL® keeps people physically active and mobile
Today, every fourth person suffers from joint problems and the number is constantly increasing. The principal cause is wear and tear of the joint cartilage brought about by age, over exercise and stressed joints. But there is help available for those in need of joint support. Developed by GELITA, FORTIGEL® is an innovative ingredient for the regeneration of joint cartilage. Collagenous protein makes up nearly 70% of cartilage mass. Optimized specific collagen peptides of FORTIGEL® have been proven to activate the growth of new cartilage by stimulating cells helping to ease joint discomfort and make the joints smooth and mobile. By keeping people physically active and mobile, FORTIGEL® can improve quality of life.
FORTIGEL® promotes growth of cartilage tissue
The effectiveness of FORTIGEL® has been scientifically proven in numerous studies. According to published research, orally administered FORTIGEL® is absorbed intestinally and accumulates in cartilage. The ingestion of FORTIGEL® stimulates a statistically significant increase of cartilage tissue metabolism.
Penn State study confirms improvement of mobility with FORTIGEL®
At Penn State University (USA, 2008), 147 athletes were recruited who experienced activity-related joint pain. Those athletes (mean age 20.1 years) were subdivided into one group taking FORTIGEL® as a nutritional supplement and a control group taking a placebo for 24 weeks. The severity of symptoms was rated both by the treating physician and by the study participants with a visual analogue scale. In this prospective, randomized, double-blind, placebo- controlled study, it was interesting to observe a statistically significant difference of pain perception between treatment and control groups. When utilizing alternative therapies such as hydrotherapy, massage and ice and heat packs, there was a clear-cut difference between the treatment and the placebo group in favor of the FORTIGEL® group. This was the first trial to show improvement of joint pain in healthy athletes treated with FORTIGEL®.
Gonçalves (2017) confirms joint improvement in middle-aged athletes
In this observational trial, three middle-aged athletes suffering from Osteochondral lesions (OCL) in knee and ankle were treated with 10 g FORTIGEL® per day. MRI Images depict the recovery of the articular surfaces after the treatment. In summary, the studies confirm that the intake of FORTIGEL® results in improvement of mobility in healthy individuals.
McAlindon proves long term effect of FORTIGEL®
In a study published in March 2011 by McAlindon and colleagues, the long term effect of FORTIGEL® treatment on the composition of hyaline cartilage in individuals with early knee osteoarthritis was investigated. This prospective, randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled pilot study was performed at the Tufts Medical Center in cooperation with Harvard University. A specific type of magnetic resonance imaging (dGEMRIC) was utilized in order to visualize structural changes in cartilage tissue of the respective study participants. Overall, 30 subjects were randomized into one group receiving 10 g FORTIGEL® a day for 48 weeks and a control group receiving a placebo. Three MRI scans of the knee were performed on each subject, one at baseline, one at 24 weeks with the final scan at 48 weeks. The analysis of the cartilage scans revealed a statistically significant increase in proteoglycan density in the medial and lateral tibial regions of the FORTIGEL® treated subjects compared to the placebo group. Results indicate that oral supplementation of FORTIGEL® has a direct impact on human cartilage tissue. This confirms previous experimental data and clearly demonstrates that specific orally administered collagen peptides can have an influence on cartilage tissue regeneration. It can be assumed that this observed effect is not limited to pathophysiological conditions, as indicated by additional clinical studies.
University of Freiburg, Germany confirms mobility improvement in young adults (Zdzieblik et al. 2017)
Intention of the mono centric, placebo-controlled, randomized, double-blind, observational trial on 160 subjects at the Institute for Sports and Sports Science, University of Freiburg, Germany was to investigate the effect of orally administered Bioactive Collagen Peptides® on young adults suffering from diagnosed activity-related knee joint pain. In the study a daily dosage of 5 g FORTIGEL® or a placebo was orally administered for a duration of 12 weeks. After 6 and 12 weeks changes in pain, stiffness, and physical function were evaluated in the FORTIGEL® group using a visual analog scale (VAS). The results of the study clearly demonstrate the efficacy of a daily intake of 5 g FORTIGEL® in the treatment of activity-related knee pain. After only 6 weeks of oral administration of the product a statistically significant improvement in pain, stiffness and physical function could be observed. Moreover, this positive effect of FORTIGEL® persisted and was even more pronounced after 12 weeks of treatment. At the same time secondary treatments such as massage and physiotherapy have been substantially reduced. The increased mobility was accompanied by a statistically significantly reduction in stiffness and a clear pain relief. In more than 40 % of all patients a complete pain reduction was achieved and in 70 % a positive effect of the therapy could be demonstrated. Thus, FORTIGEL® is an effective therapeutic approach for those suffering from knee conditions. University of Freiburg, Germany confirms mobility improvement in young adults (Zdzieblik et al. 2017) Two recent studies, conducted at the universities of Hamburg and Freiburg, Germany, proof the dose of 5 g per day in healthy adults. Both studies are submitted for publication

CURSOL is a patented active ingredient offering highly soluble curcumin with powerful anti-inflammatory action.
CURSOL is particularly designed for all pathologies involving inflammatory processes. Its highly free flowing powder form allows any possible mixture with other active ingredients for targeting a selected pathology.
There is a real need for natural and side-effects free anti-inflammatory ingredients with high security of use and level of activity. Numerous anti-inflammatory drugs present a lot of side-effects and cannot be administrated for a chronic use. CURSOL is thus a natural alternative to the classical NSAID’s drugs.
Taking CURSOL on a chronic basis will achieve a steady state of curcumin in the plasma. This will prevent from inflammatory processes.
CURSOL contains a highly soluble curcumin extract (Curcuma longa L.) in a patented formulation involving food grade emulsifiers that increase significantly its assimilation.
Its active principal acts on the symptoms of all inflammatory pathologies, caused by numerous diseases (for example ostheoarthritis, gastrointestinal disorders) to relieve:
- joint pain and cartilage degradation,
- abdominal pain (troubles associated to intestinal disorders)
Due to the excellent safety profile of the active ingredient, CURSOL can safely be taken on a chronic basis.
Glucosamine & Chondroitin
Glucosamine and Chondroitin for Osteoarthritis Pain
Glucosamine and chondroitin are popular supplements used to treat osteoarthritis (OA). According to one estimate from the National Institutes of Health, 6.5 million adults, or 2.6% of the population, has used one or both of these products. Although studies on glucosamine and chondroitin have been mixed, some evidence suggests they may help relieve OA joint pain and stiffness.
What Are Glucosamine and Chondroitin?
Glucosamine and chondroitin are natural compounds found in healthy cartilage — the connective tissue that cushions joints. Supplements are manufactured from the cartilage of animals such as cows, pigs or shellfish, or are made in a lab. Glucosamine is sold in different forms, including glucosamine sulfate and glucosamine hydrochloride. You can buy glucosamine and chondroitin individually, but most often they’re sold together in a single supplement.
How Do They Work?
In OA, the gradual degeneration of cartilage leads to pain, swelling, and other symptoms. Glucosamine and chondroitin have anti-inflammatory properties. “They also have some cartilage-protecting effects through a variety of different mechanisms,” says Chris D’Adamo, PhD, director of Research & Education at the University of Maryland School of Medicine Center for Integrative Medicine.
Glucosamine and chondroitin protect cells called chondrocytes, which help maintain cartilage structure. In theory, these supplements have the potential to slow cartilage deterioration in the joints, and to reduce pain in the process.
Methylsulfonylmethane (MSM) is a sulfur-containing compound found in plants, animals, and humans. It can also be made in a lab into a dietary supplement, which is used widely in alternative medicine.
MSM is often used by people looking for a natural way to relieve joint pain, reduce inflammation, and boost immunity. In addition, research supports its use in treating a number of conditions, from arthritis to rosacea.
Here are 7 science-backed health benefits of MSM.
- Can Decrease Joint Pain, Which Could Improve Your Quality of Life
Studies have shown that MSM is effective in reducing joint pain, stiffness and swelling. In doing so, it can improve your quality of life.
- Has Anti-Inflammatory Effects, Such as Increasing Glutathione Levels
MSM may reduce the release of molecules associated with inflammation, such as TNF-ɑ and IL-6, as well as boost levels of the powerful antioxidant glutathione.
- Can Speed Recovery After Exercise by Reducing Muscle Damage and Stress
MSM may help reduce pain, muscle damage and oxidative stress after intense exercise, helping you recover more quickly.
- Helps Alleviate Arthritis Symptoms by Reducing Pain and Stiffness
MSM supplements have been shown to help reduce pain and stiffness in people with arthritis. They may also help improve physical function
- May Help Relieve Allergy Symptoms by Reducing Inflammation
MSM may help reduce allergy-related symptoms — including coughing, shortness of breath, congestion, sneezing and fatigue — by reducing inflammation.
- Can Boost Immunity and Help You Stay Healthy
MSM may help boost your immune system by reducing inflammation and increasing glutathione levels.
- Could Improve Skin Health by Strengthening Keratin
MSM may improve skin health by strengthening keratin and reducing inflammation. It could even help reduce symptoms of certain skin conditions, as well
What Is Hyaluronic Acid and How Does It Help My Joints?
Hyaluronic acid is a natural substance found in your body’s joints and the fluid in your eyes. It acts as a lubricant and protective cushion.
Your body produces synovial fluid between joints to help movement and reduce friction. Using hyaluronic acid for joint problems, especially in the knees, can increase the density of the synovial fluid.
Hyaluronic acid also delays further cartilage degradation and forms a protective layer between joints to relieve pain.
How does hyaluronic acid work?
Your body uses hyaluronic acid to cushion, hydrate, lubricate, and heal your body. It’s in your connective tissue, skin, bones, joint fluid (synovial fluid), cartilage, and the eye’s vitreous body.
Hyaluronic acid is the key molecule responsible for skin moisture and has the ability to retain water. This essential molecule contributes to your joints’ stability and friction-free mechanics.
Hyaluronic acid also supports movement in the connective tissue casing called fascia, which envelopes all muscles, bones, and organs like a net.
Benefits of hyaluronic acid for the joints
Hyaluronic acid occurs naturally in many parts of your body.
Skin and mucous membranes
Around half of the hyaluronic acid found in your body is in your skin and mucous membranes. By binding water, hyaluronic acid contributes to elasticity and stability. One gram of hyaluronic acid can bind up to six liters of water.
Joints contain synovial fluid with hyaluronic acid, creating a smooth layer. This layer greatly reduces the friction in your joint and helps absorb shocks to prevent joint wear.
In the core of the intervertebral discs, a gel made of hyaluronic acid serves as a shock absorber and protects against impact and pressure.
Your eye’s vitreous body is filled with approximately 98% water and 2% hyaluronic acid. This makes your eyeball stable but elastic and transparent.
In the case of inflammation or after injuries, the availability of hyaluronic acid in the joint decreases.
The goal is to prevent or at least slow down the joint wear caused by the increased friction of the joint surfaces.
Vitamin C serves a role as a co-factor in collagen synthesis, the main protein in joint tissue and bone. Vitamin C plays a role in fighting infection and may work to control inflammation linked to infection, which may trigger arthritis flares.
