Legacy ingredients are losing ground as emerging products gain validation. While collagen is an effective ingredient for joint health, not all types of collagen are created equal. Jaume Reguant, healthcare director for Bioiberica (Barcelona, Spain), says formulators who want to work with collagen will need to consider which type of collagen is best for their application.
“Native type II collagen is an effective joint health ingredient and compared to its hydrolyzed counterpart requires a much lower dosage,” Reguant says. “This means it can be incorporated alongside other beneficial ingredients to support joint health.”
“Emerging ingredients like this are facilitating a new era of mobility health that appeals to a wider range of people who see movement as a fundamental part of their physical and mental well-being,” he adds.
