New Joint Health Marketing Opportunities for Dietary Supplement Manufacturers and Retailers to be Presented by DSM at ACR Conference

DSM Nutritional Products is sponsoring this month a major poster presentation that will demonstrate how DSM’s i-flex® works to soothe joints and improve joint function more quickly, effectively, and safely than comparable products, offering dietary supplement manufacturers and retailers major new market opportunities.

On Monday, October 27, at the American College of Rheumatology Conference at the Moscone Center in San Francisco, Dr. Arsalan Kharazmi, from the Department of Clinical Microbiology of the University Hospital (Rigshospitalalet) in Copenhagen, Denmark, will present ”Beneficial Effect of the Herbal Remedy Rose-hip Powder on Patients with Rheumatoid Arthritis.”

A co-researcher in this randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled clinical study, Dr. Kharazmi will present the results of this research and reveal how a special patented rose-hip ingredient is shown to significantly improve the symptoms of patients afflicted with rheumatoid arthritis. These results were demonstrated in several patient- and physician-based assessments of Quality of Life and disease status.

DSM Nutritional Products has the rights to this rose-hip ingredient and the company is now marketing the product under the brand name i-flex®.

Other major clinical trials have demonstrated that i-flex® works to soothe joints and improve flexibility in as little as three weeks for up to 82% of the study subjects, which is much faster than glucosamine or chondroitin products. This research also indicates that animal-free i-flex® is significantly more effective than glucosamine HCL, while having no treatment-related side effects.

DSM Nutritional Products is the world’s premier nutritional ingredient supplier to producers of foods, beverages, and dietary supplements. The company has an international network of technical service, production and distribution facilities and a major sales and marketing presence in more than 100 countries. In addition to its vast ingredient portfolio, DSM provides unparalleled processing and manufacturing expertise in developing innovative formulations that provide optimum performance and health appeal.

Dr. Kharazmi will be available to ACR Conference attendees to discuss the joint health benefits of i-flex® on October 27, from 9:00 am to 6:00 pm in Hall A of the Moscone Center, 747 Howard Street, in San Francisco.
