The new Advanced Athletic Beauty Collagen Ultra is called ‘advanced’ for a reason. We have added three highly bioactive and specific peptides that target skin, nails, tendons, ligaments and cartilage. Which really brings the innovative idea of athletic beauty together. The specific peptides FORTIGEL® have been developed by Gelita to target and regenerate joint cartilage.

Firstly, let’s understand what the differences are between Collagen protein and Bioactive Collagen Peptides…

Collagen is a protein formed by three polypeptide chains. These chains are wrapped around each other and form a big molecule. The problem is, when you consume this big molecule, your body needs to break it down in order to absorb it. That is why many collagen products in the market have been shown to be ineffective. Gelita has manipulated these molecules to create bioavailable peptides that are easily absorbed and used by the body. The manipulation processes will separate these big molecules and create specific peptides that are formulated to target specific tissues, such as skin or cartilage.

Now, let’s talk FORTIGEL® Bioactive Collagen Peptides

FORTIGEL® is an innovative ingredient for the regeneration of joint cartilage. The specific collagen peptides of FORTIGEL® activate the growth of new cartilage by stimulating cells helping ease joint discomfort and make the joints smooth and mobile.

Through clinical trials, FORTIGEL® has been shown to:

  • Increase cartilage tissue
  • Significantly improve mobility
  • Significantly reduce pain and stiffness
  • Improve physical function
  • Promote joint pain relief
  • Preserve mobility and quality of life

Why should you care about joint, cartilage and mobility?

Cartilage is the smooth, shiny, white connective tissue that covers the end of the bones. Cartilage cushions the ends of your bones and allows them to move smoothly and easily against each other. This tissue tends to wear off as we age as well as a response to inflammation, some types of exercise, moving, walking and just about everything we do on a daily basis. As this tissue deteriorates, the underlying bones may not have enough cushioning from your cartilage. Once the bone surfaces come in direct contact with each other, pain and inflammation will occur in your joints and surrounding tissues. It will also put extra stress on your connective tissues, such as tendons and ligaments.


Think of the cartilage as a shock-absorbent in your joints. As this tissue wears off, your joints will be less able to absorb the demands that our lives place on them (such as walking, running, jumping, squatting etc). This has been shown to reduce mobility, movement quality and quality of life. It has also been shown to increase stiffness, particularly after sitting or lying down. This will affect the way your train, work, perform and practice everyday activities. Improving mobility is crucial to guarantee appropriate exercise form, increase quality of life and prevent other injuries.


Advanced Athletic Beauty Collagen Ultra contains FORTIGEL® to promote cartilage tissue regeneration, as well as TENDOFORTE® to improve connective tissue health (such as tendons and ligaments) and VERISOL® to improve skin, hair and nails health.
