Patented combination [EP2224939B1] of collagen hydrolyzate (Fortigel®) and rose hip extract as well as vitamin C. The daily diet is supplemented with specific nutrients that are important for cartilage development, movement and strength of the joints; especially knees and hip joints. The rose hip, the red fruit from the wild rose (Rosa canina L.), has always been well-known and popular. It is widespread throughout the world and surprises with its versatility for use in teas, jams and fruit jellies. The peel from the southern rose hip is the basis for this newly developed special extract.
Collagen hydrolyzate (Fortigel®) is particularly important for the function of the joints because joint cartilage is made up of around 70 percent collagen. Collagen hydrolyzate is especially well absorbed by the body. Specially optimised collage peptides are proven to promote joint cartilage growth and therefore counteract wearing of the joints caused by age and strain. Vitamin C contributes towards normal production of collagen, which is required for healthy cartilage and bones.
