Jamieson Labs includes InterHealth's UC-II in joint-health product

InterHealth Nutraceuticals' signature joint-health ingredient, UC-II, is included in a new product from Jamieson Laboratories.

InterHealth Nutraceuticals’ signature joint-health ingredient, UC-II®, is included in a new product from Jamieson Laboratories, Canada’s leading manufacturer and distributor of advanced natural healthcare products. Jamieson introduced their new once-a-day UC-II®/glucoasamine joint-health product mid-March for distribution across Canadian Food, Drug, Mass Merchandisers channel.

Jamieson’s Collagen Glucosamine Complex delivers a Collagen Glucosaminecomprehensive joint-support formula. Collagen Glucosamine Complex provides 40 mg of UC-II® undenatured type II collagen made and sourced in North America from chicken cartilage. Peer-reviewed published clinical research conducted in North America shows that just 40 mg of UC-II® a day increases joint mobility, flexibility and quality of life twice as effectively as glucosamine-chondroitin. UC-II® offers a unique mechanism of action that helps the body rebuild joint cartilage and restore mobility. UC-II® works differently than other types of collagen asundenatured type II collagen may help trigger a series of events that slows down the secretion of joint-cartilage degrading enzymes.

“We are very excited to have UC-II® represented by Jamieson—a pioneer in the natural healthcare market,” stated Paul Dijkstra, InterHealth’s CEO. “Given the brand recognition and consumer trust in Jamieson and UC-II®’s proven benefits, Collagen Glucosamine Complex is certain to attract consumer attention, helping to make a difference in people’s lives.” Dijkstra added that InterHealth offers support to all their partners. “We have a vested interest in the success of the finished products that use our ingredients. We worked closely with Jamieson to help provide consumers with an enhanced joint-health product offering. Additionally, our R&D and marketing staff traveled to Canada to help train Jamieson’s sales force on UC-II®’s product benefits and clinical research, helping to ensure success of Collagen Glucosamine Complex.”

“We love that the efficacious dose of UC-II® is only 40 mg a day – this makes the product that much more marketable to consumers not only dealing with joint discomfort and pain, but suffering from pill fatigue as well. It provides a once daily option within our line of, and Canada’s best selling, glucosamine-based joint care products,” stated Jillian Mariani, Director of Brand Marketing at Jamieson Laboratories. “UC-II®’s published peer-reviewed clinical research demonstrating twice the efficacy as glucosamine-chondroitin as well as its unique mechanism provides us with relevant and consumer-friendly product health claims. Consumers know that glucosamine-chondroitin products have efficacy, so having a study that shows that UC-II® may be much more effective provides another viable choice to consumers that are suffering, or who have not had success with glucosamine-chondroitin alone.” Mariani added, “The solid efficacy and safety research on UC-II® meets with Jamieson 360PureTM quality protocols, an industry-leading process that exceeds the requirements of Health Canada.”

Collagen Glucosamine Complex is available for distribution across Canada. Retailers interested in carrying Collagen Glucosamine Complex featuring UC-II® can contact Kim Cloutier, Director of Customer Service, at 1-800-265-5088 ext 3223 for further details.
