Cartilage Comfort Named Among Top Productsfor Innovation and Market Impact

Farmingdale (August 2017) — Cartilage Comfort by Patient One MediNutritionals has been selected as a Finalist for the 2017 SupplySide CPG Editor’s Choice Awards.

Five consumer packaged goods (CPG) products were selected for achievements in innovation and market impact in 27 different categories. Cartilage Comfort was named to the short list in the Joint Support category

One winner in each category will be announced at SupplySide West 2017 during presentations at SupplySide Central on September 27 and 28 at Mandalay Bay Resort in Las Vegas, Nevada.

Patient One President Gerard McIntee stated, “We are both honored and proud to be selected as Finalist, being recognized in a field of outstanding joint health formulas industry-wide.” Adding that “Patient One’s formulas are developed based on scientific data”, McIntee noted that “Patient One Cartilage Comfort unites a synergistic combination of three clinically proven ingredients that help strengthen and support the maintenance and natural repair processes of healthy connective tissue. This formula supplies UC-II®, a unique undenatured Type II collagen complex, MSM (as OptiMSM®) and Meriva® Phytosome™ turmeric to promote joint health and comfort in a convenient, one capsule per day dose.” 

UC–II has been shown in clinical studies to be more than twice as effective in promoting joint health as 1,500 mg glucosamine and 1,200 mg chondroitin as rated by WOMAC, VAS and Lequesne functional indices. While MSM is most known for its ability to support collagen production, the primary constituent of cartilage, skin and connective tissue, research indicates that MSM also modulates histamine release and inflammation. Meriva bioavailable turmeric supports normal inflammatory response and joint comfort. For more information, visit
