Glucosamine and chondroitin have been traditionally known on the market as active ingredients for joint health. However there is a growing demand for second generation ingredients, lead by collagen peptides. According to data collected by SPINS, sales of collagen products increased by 76.3% in 2016 to reach more than $8 million.
The efficacy of collagen peptides in supporting joint health is supported by an extensive body of scientific studies. Safe and natural, collagen peptides are the body’s own building blocks for cartilage, and an ideal ingredient to target not only on older consumers but also those who frequently engage in repetitive sports such as running or cycling. Peptan® collagen peptides offer unique and well demonstrated benefits and are increasingly used as the key active ingredient in successful joint health product formulations.
Caldic is partnered with Rousselot to provide Peptan® hydrolyzed collagen in a variety of easy to use formats to suit many different applications:
