What is it East ?
Ligatene is a dietary supplement based on hydrolyzed beef collagen peptides and bromelain. It is composed of the raw materials of collagen peptides: Tendoforte®. This type of collagen is specially designed for cartilage, tendon and ligamentous tissues.
Yamamoto® presents LIGATENE, a dietary supplement born from the need to provide reliable support in the recovery and health and performance of tendons, consisting of bioactive peptides obtained from a special collagen hydrolyzate "TENDOFORTE®" and assisted by the presence of BROMELAIN . TENDOFORTE® is one of the latest versions of collagen hydrolyzate produced by industry leading company GELITA®, based on highly bioactive peptides specifically designed to provide direct support that acts on the tendon structure, also able to stimulate the same biosynthesis. novel extracellular matrix molecules.
Ligatene from Yamamoto is composed of only 2 ingredients, the main one being labeled: collagen peptides Bioactive Collagen Peptide®
Collagen peptides are hydrolyzed collagen, ie "pre-digested" proteins that are found in the form of easily absorbable free amino acid chains. There are different forms of collagen (example: native collagen ), however the most effective products are those that contain collagen peptides. Indeed, the hydrolyzation of long chains of amino acids into much shorter chains allows better absorption and use by the body. Here, the collagen peptides of the Bioactive Collagen Peptides® range are specific and allow, for example, partial survival to digestion and therefore the crossing of the intestinal barrier while remaining intact.
The peptides in Bioactive Collagen Peptides® stand out for their high concentration of proline and glycine, which form bonds that are more resistant to degradation by digestive enzymes. In addition, they maintain their unique, longer and thinner helix structure, which improves stability and folding properties favorable to their absorption. It is estimated that approximately 10% of the collagen peptides offered by the Gelita brand remain intact at the time of digestion, which demonstrates effective bioavailability, penetration into the bloodstream and optimal and rapid utilization. The other peptides are broken down into amino acids and used as building blocks for other tissues.
Tendoforte® is a supplement of bioactive collagen peptides also developed by the German company Gelita. It is used for the purpose of increasing the health and quality of ligaments and tendons. Its effectiveness has also been scientifically proven in several preclinical and clinical studies, especially in combination with physical activity. It also consists of Bioactive Collagen Peptides®. Its specificity is that the peptides have been chosen with the aim of specifically strengthening tendons and ligaments as a preventive measure and also to reduce the incidence of sports injuries as well as the recovery time of performance levels after injury.

To find out more on collagen.
Collagen is the main protein in connective tissue (supporting tissue that protects the organs it surrounds) and the most abundant in the body (30% of total protein). Its main functions are to ensure the cohesion of all tissues, to guarantee the elasticity and integrity of the skin, cartilage, tendons and ligaments as well as bones. During natural aging, the synthesis of collagen slows down, leading to a progressive degradation of collagen fibers (the skin thins and wrinkles appear, loss of bone mass, joint pain due to loss of cartilage, etc.) Collagen, unlike all the others sources of protein, has a very specific composition of amino acids which gives it unique functional properties. These amino acids provided in large proportion (glycine and proline/hydroxyproline) are those found in the skin, bones and joints of the human body, which explains its specific action on these tissues.
At the level of the skin, the collagen fibers allow the maintenance of the structure and the firmness of the skin as well as the stability of the elastin (guaranteeing the elasticity of the skin) and the hyaluronic acid (guaranteeing hydration). The activity of collagen-producing cells decreases with age, so the supply of collagen peptides allows these functions to be maintained. A clinical trial showed that collagen peptide supplementation increased skin hydration, decreased collagen fragmentation (deterioration) in the deep layers of the skin over time, and increased same time the density of the collagen fiber layer.
At the bone level, collagen peptides would stimulate osteoblasts (cells responsible for bone formation) without affecting osteoclasts (cells that resorb tissue bony). Thus, collagen would promote the renewal of bone tissue while preserving its mineral density and improving its solidity and resistance over time.
At the cartilaginous level, a study conducted by the Collagen Research Institute (CRI), showed that supplementation with collagen peptides stimulated cartilage cell metabolism (stimulation of chondrocytes) and increased the production of aggrecan, a proteoglycan essential for cartilage function. Bioactive collagen peptides would therefore stimulate the synthesis and regeneration of the extracellular cartilaginous matrix and delay the onset of pain, tenderness or stiffness of the joints associated with age and sport.
Finally, collagen has secondary functions such as maintaining healthy hair and nails. Indeed, collagen peptides are used by cells to produce keratin (protein that makes up hair and nails).

Health professional opinion
Nutrition expert opinion
"Collagen is a major and essential constituent for the health of bones, joints, tendons and ligaments. Unfortunately, the current diet contains almost no more because of our habits (we no longer eat the skin of meat or the marrow of bones...). Thus, we end up with a greatly reduced collagen supply. However, you should know that, even if the synthesis of collagen is endogenous, it decreases over time and with intense physical effort. Indeed, the older we get, the more the synthesis of collagen decreases. For top athletes, collagen synthesis is overstimulated by the greater and more frequent degradation of tissues. Thus, collagen supplementation seems to be of absolute importance for the elderly and for athletes in order to preserve the health of their joints. Ligaforce is a must-have collagen supplement. It contains two very well-known labels of the Gelita™ brand which are specially designed to provide hydrolyzed collagen peptides, easily assimilated, specialized in cartilage, tendon and ligamentous tissues. Finally a collagen that targets the health of our joints. "
