From pre-season training to game-day tailgating, collagen peptide supplementation is the ticket to hitting peak performance. Collagen peptides help build stamina, strength, and muscle mass while supporting the body’s tendons and ligaments for improved athletic agility. 

GELITA’s winning team of gelatines for soft-capsule, hard-capsule or gummy delivery systems is also sure to score big. 

Pre-Season Training to Game Day Tailgating

With so much attention on the sports nutrition arena, GELITA’s roster of Bioactive Collagen Peptides® is sure to be Most Valuable Player at SupplySide West (SSW).

GELITA will serve up in-depth information on specific collagen peptides that support the body’s functions – both on and off the field. Register, via the SSW registration portal, for GELITA‘s Lunch Brief session (Friday, October 18: noon-1pm) for coaching on how these specific collagen peptides boost protein formulations targeted to support physical performance.
