The Next Blockbuster Joint Health Product: Ideas & Directions

Considering the graying of America and the growth in the sports nutrition market, the market for joint health ingredients should be booming. However, research by the National Institutes for Health and consumer products companies suggest that the growth in use of joint health products lags behind other condition specific formulations and may even be in decline.This presentation focuses on the development and marketing of new joint health ingredients that have the potential to capture the trust and the imagination of consumers.

Collagen in motion –How Peptan reduce inflammation and support the regeneration of healthy cartilage and bones

A prerequisite for good mobility is to keep bones, muscles and especially the joints healthy. This holds true during ageing, where the musculoskeletal system continuously grows less strong, but also under strenuous use such as high-level exercise in athletes. Dietary supplements with proven benefits that can help to enforce the musculoskeletal system are in demand by consumers.

Collagen peptides are an increasingly preferred ingredient for joint health formulations, challenging first generation ingredients. New in vivo data provide evidence of how Peptan collagen peptides promote cartilage regeneration in joints and reduce inflammation, adding to existing evidence. Placebo controlled clinical trials demonstrated a significant improvement in joint function and comfort, with Peptan treatment recording a significant decrease of the WOMAC score linked to a 32 % decrease in joint pain and 44 % improvement of stiffness.

Collagen provides the organic framework in bones on which minerals are deposited and also contribute to bone flexibility and strength. Multiple In-vivo studies have proven Peptan’s ability to stimulate the endogenous production of collagen in bone tissue, triggering osteoblasts (bone formation cells) and increasing bone size, strength and density.

Understanding the mode of action of active ingredients like Peptan are paramount for their long term success and scientific credibility.

UC-II: A Game-Changing Ingredient for the Joint Health Category

UC-II® is a novel patented form of undenatured type II collagen derived from chicken sternum cartilage. Since its initial discovery, InterHealth has continued to systematically build scientific support surrounding this ingredient. UC-II has undergone rigorous third-party research and testing for efficacy, safety and quality. Three randomized, double-blind, controlled trials (RCTs) show that 40 mg of UC-II once-a-day supports joint comfort, mobility and flexibility. To the best of our knowledge, UC-II is the only joint health ingredient that has been tested in healthy active exercising adults, which provides additional substantiation for its joint health benefits. UC-II is a FDA-notified and published new dietary ingredient (NDI). This presentation will discuss the results from the two recently completed RDBPC trials conducted in healthy as well as in knee OA subjects. The webinar will also highlight on how UC-II is impacting the growth of the top brands in the joint health segment.
