GELITA returns to Las Vegas and Supplyside West once again as the “Official Collagen Protein Sponsor” and will showcase its latest collagen innovations and scientific findings at Supplyside West Booth #3771. 

With much attention on the Sports Nutrition arena, GELITA’s roster of Bioactive Collagen Peptides® will be the stars of the show. TENDOFORTE®, GELITA’s latest collagen peptide brand also offers specific and optimized collagen peptides proven to strengthen tendons and ligaments. With its unique mode of action, this clean label ingredient is especially suitable for the booming sports nutrition market. 

GELITA will also present the latest scientific research on FORTIBONE®, which underlines the ingredient’s potential to significantly increase bone mineral density. 

Stay Active, Mobile 

At its booth, GELITA will offer visitors to Supplyside West in-depth information on specific collagen peptides that support the musculoskeletal system. For example, TENDOFORTE® has a pronounced stimulatory impact on the biosynthesis of extracellular matrix molecules in ligaments and tendons. This makes it highly suitable for sports nutrition products targeted toward protecting soft tissues in both amateur and professional athletes.

 As it makes up 95% of organic bone matrix, collagen is also essential for strong and stable bones. Now, a new study has investigated the long-term effects of specific collagen peptide supplementation on bone health. Experts will be available at the GELITA booth to talk visitors through the promising results, which confirm a pronounced increase in bone mineral density after FORTIBONE® supplementation.

To showcase how these and other GELITA Bioactive Collagen Peptides® could work in finished products, GELITA has developed a full menu of exciting beverages and foods to be exclusively featured and sampled at the Supplyside West Tasting Bar (Booth #5735). 

At this GELITA CAFÉ within the Tasting Bar, attendees will have the opportunity to partake of everyday foods and beverages that have been creatively infused with collagen for added benefits and value. In addition to products with TENDOFORTE® and FORITGEL®, GELITA will offer selections including BODYBALANCE® for body toning and increased muscle strength and VERISOL® for improved skin elasticity, wrinkle reduction, and even cellulite reduction as well as improved nail growth.

Casual Connections

To continue the conversation and dive deeper into collagen proteins and their relevance in the market, visitors are invited to join GELITA’s team of experts for cocktails and hors devours, and enjoy a collagen protein infused cocktail dessert on Thursday, Nov. 8 from 4:00-5:30 p.m. as GELITA hosts a one-of-a-kind cocktail reception at its booth.
