Lonza Consumer Health & Nutrition (CH&N) is bringing “function and form” to SupplySide West 2018 through its latest range of science-backed ingredients, advanced delivery systems and innovative dosage forms that address the latest consumer trends across healthy aging, active nutrition, digestive health, cognitive health, beauty from within, and clean label applications.
At the show, Lonza CH&N will demonstrate its patented UC-II joint health ingredient at the UC-II Interactive Zone. Visitors can discover how UC-II has a unique mechanism of action that helps repair, clean and rebuild healthy collagen plus learn about new UC-II product concepts in Vcaps Plus, Licaps and DUOCAP capsules that offer solutions for healthy aging and active nutrition. Experts will be on-stand to explain the extensive science behind UC-II undenatured type II collagen, including how it has been shown in clinical studies to support joint health by improving comfort, mobility and flexibility, with a small daily dose of just 40 mg.
UC-II ingredient benefits in the healthy aging category will be further explored in a presentation by Jim Lugo, Head of Ingredient R&D for Lonza CH&N. The talk, titled “Creating joint health solutions to support healthy active aging” will be delivered on the Central Stage (Booth 1036) on Thursday, Nov. 8th at 2 p.m. and will provide more information on formulating with the ingredient and showcase unique dosage and delivery combinations.
Lonza CH&N will also highlight its expertise in specialty, science-backed ingredients with the latest innovations in active nutrition—an ever-evolving segment. A range of advanced, finished product concepts featuring Carnipure L-Carnitine will be on display, showcasing how combination products can be formulated to aid the recovery process. Visitors can discover new prototypes, including formulations with Carnipure L-Carnitine, choline and vitamin B12 in a Licaps liquid-filled capsule, for muscle maintenance and recovery. Additional ingredient highlights for the active nutrition market include Lonza’s ZMA ingredient, a highly bioavailable proprietary blend of L-OptiZinc zinc mono-L-methionine.
In addition, Lonza CH&N will be highlighting extensive scientific expertise and application flexibility of its ResistAid proprietary ingredient for natural immune support, and its Relora brand, which has been shown in clinical studies to help improve mood states and reduce overall stress.
At the show, the company will be featuring a wide range of consumer preferred, innovative delivery and dosage forms solutions including its innovative Lipid Multi-Particulate (LMP) technology. Visitors will be able to learn how the LMP technology can be used in a range of dosage forms to improve performance in applications such as active nutrition, while also enhancing bioavailability, enabling modified release and providing taste masking for difficult ingredients.
In addition, visitors to the booth can discover the full range of delivery solutions from Lonza CH&N, including its DUOCAP capsule-in-capsule technology, designed to overcome complex manufacturing challenges, DRcaps vegetarian capsules that help protect ingredients from stomach acid and can help mask taste and odor, and Vcaps Plus vegetarian capsules which are also ideal for moisture sensitive ingredients. Finished product concepts will be available on stand to demonstrate how both liquid and solid formulations can be incorporated together, using prototypes such as the UC-II brand combined with complementary ingredients like curcumin for use in joint health applications.
