Will also ‘undenatured’ collagen Type II be included in your product assortment?

2017 February 23


I’ve been ordering glucosamine and chondroitin from you for some time. Recently I read something about undenatured collagen type II. This would also yield good results for people with osteoarthritis. Are you familiar with this and will/can you implement this in your product assortment as well.

Much is written lately about Undenatured Collagen Type II. It seems that this product may have a beneficial effect on joint problems. But the same goes for more products, such as SAM-e.

At the moment we don’t have any plans to include Collagen Type II as an extra product in our assortment. We would like to see some more scientific evidence first, and moreover it is quite pricey (if it’s indeed high quality material). But the most important consideration is of a practical nature. We’re already getting regular complaints from customers who can’t see the forest for the trees. Should they take glucosamine, or chondroitin, or ASU Forte, or Arthro-5? There are already too many choices for them. Adding Collagen Type II would only complicate that problem even more.[arthro-5-rechts]

A possible solution is to include Collagen Type II as an extra ingredient in Arthro-5 (which would become Arthro-6). At the moment we don’t think it’s an option. Arthro-5 would then also get a lot more expensive, already some customers think the price is too high, and the amount of capsules would increase as well. Currently some people think 6 capsules is already more than enough. That could eventually lead to customers dropping off, or not following instructions (taking less capsules), so the Collagen Type II would be less effective. Furthermore every extra ingredient would increase the chance of side effects.

For us it’s important that Arthro-5 is already very complete product, and therefore very effective. It’s sufficient to treat most symptoms.

However, we’ll surely keep an eye on the product for the future. Thanks for your suggestion.
