TENDOFORTE®

Gelita

TENDOFORTE is a specific bioactive collagen peptide, produced using GELITA’s proprietary hydrolysis process. Specific for tendons and ligaments, TENDOFORTE activates the metabolism of cells in these collagen-rich tissues, for their natural renewal and repair. Muscles do not exist on their own. A tremendous amount of physical power stems from strong tendons, ligaments and fascia – the white connective tissue. Relevant to all sports, TENDOFORTE is the first nutritional solution on the market for the white tissue. The missing piece for training at high intensity, while staying injury-free.

HydroCurc®

Pharmako Biotechnologies

As sports nutrition broadens, brands need to offer novel solutions. Curcumin is now recognised as one of the best anti-inflammatory agents. HydroCurc supports both sides of the continuum of boosting performance and improving recovery. It provides important benefits to a range of consumers from elite athletes to active mothers or seniors, with clinically proven relief from joint and muscle pain. HydroCurc is a water dispersible curcumin, with more curcuminoids than other bioavailable curcumins, lower excipients (only 10%) and increased functionality. It is formulated with the ESSNA (European Sports Science Nutrition Awards) winning LipiSperse technology.

Levagen+

Gencor Pacific

Levagen+ is Gencor's branded palmitoylethanolamide (PEA) - a potent anti-inflammatory and analgesic. PEA is naturally produced by the body as a repair mechanism in response to periods of increased stress, pain and inflammation. Powered by LipiSperse delivery technology, Levagen+ is cold water dispersible, providing format versatility and x1.8 more bioavailability than standard PEA. PEA is increasingly relevant within a sport and active environment particularly in response to injury and pain, to prolong performance, and as a potential post exercise recovery aid.
