According to the Nutrition Business Journal, consumer sales of joint health specific supplements were $1.2 billion in 2006, up 2.5% from the previous year. The market for dietary joint supplements is almost certain to grow substantially over the next several years. InterHealth’s patented ingredient, UC-II®, is an undenatured type II collagen. UC-II has been shown in published clinical research to be more than twice as effective as glucosamine + chondroitin in supporting joint health.* The suggested small 40 mg daily amount of UC-II allows manufacturers to formulate effective stand-alone products with a small tablet size for greater consumer compliance. The small dosage also allows manufacturers to easily add value to multi-ingredient formulations of existing or new joint health products.
