InterHealth Nutraceuticals announced the inclusion of its signature joint-health ingredient, UC-II®, in a new version of Move Free® Ultra from Schiff Nutrition International, Inc. (NYSE: WNI). With an efficacious once-a-day dose of just 40 mg, UC-II offers unique joint health benefits while simultaneously addressing consumer pill fatigue.
“InterHealth’s UC-II offering provides Schiff with a key ingredient for our once-a-day Move Free product without compromising on the science, safety and quality of the Move Free brand,” stated Schiff’s senior vice president and chief marketing officer, Jennifer Steeves-Kiss. “In addition, UC-II’s clinical data is impressive, and it works in a unique way to inhibit joint cartilage damage, enabling the body to rebuild healthy joints.”
UC-II undenatured type II collagen may help trigger a series of events that slows down the secretion of joint-cartilage degrading enzymes. It not only works differently than other collagens on the market, but it is more effective than glucosamine & chondroitin. UC-II is supported by peer-reviewed published clinical research demonstrating that just 40 mg increases joint mobility, flexibility and quality of life twice as effectively as glucosamine & chondroitin.
“To be able to offer such a superior joint-health product to manufacturers and consumers is extremely important to InterHealth,” stated InterHealth’s CEO, Paul Dijkstra. “We are excited that UC-II is featured in Schiff’s new Move Free Ultra. The popularity of the Move Free brand should, in turn, help increase consumer awareness of the UC-II brand.”
UC-II is a published and notified new dietary ingredient (NDI) in the United States as well as a non-novel food in the EU. UC-II is sourced and manufactured in the United States and offers manufacturers a chance to formulate superior joint-health products for improved joint health and improved quality of life for millions of people with joint health issues.
