Two leading causes of bone and joint problems, osteoarthritis and osteoporosis, affect more than 75 million people in the United States alone. They are only part of the larger segment of musculoskeletal conditions and related health-issues affecting hundreds of millions of people globally that contribute to severe long-term pain and physical disability.

As consumers increasingly take personal health management into their own hands, they seek foods, beverages and clinical products to help address the deterioration, inflammation and pain associated with bone and joint problems.

Fortitech, essentially the founder and pioneer of the nutrient premix industry, will host a Webinar on Tuesday, Feb. 2, at 11 a.m. EST, that will showcase how strategic nutrition can be utilized to develop products that target bone and joint health. Attendees will learn about key nutrients that can be used in the treatment and prevention of these health conditions as well as best practices for formulation with these ingredients – including custom nutrient premixes that target popular product applications.

Holick, Ph.D., M.D., professor of medicine, physiology and biophysics; director of the General Clinical Research Unit; and director of the Bone Health Care Clinic and the Heliotherapy, Light and Skin Research Center at Boston University Medical Center.
