The authorization allows manufacturers in Brazil to use Mobilee as an ingredient in supplements and functional foods. 

The Health Regulatory Agency of the Brazilian Ministry of Health has given Mobilee (from Bioiberica; Barcelona, Spain) marketing authorization as a novel food ingredient. Mobilee is a patented ingredient derived from rooster comb that is rich in hyaluronic acid, and designed to support joint health and muscular function. The authorization allows manufacturers in Brazil to use Mobilee as an ingredient in supplements and functional foods.

“Mobilee is an innovative product that is naturally absorbed by the human body. Thanks to the synergy of its individual components – hyaluronic acid, collagen and polysaccharides – the benefits Mobilee can offer, go far beyond the advantages offered by hyaluronic acid alone,” said Daniel Martinez, PhD, head of human health R&D for Bioiberica, in a press release. “Taking just 80 mg per day for at least two months preserves joint health and muscular function.”

Mobilee is already authorized as an ingredient in supplements and functional foods in the European Union, the United States, Canada, Australia, New Zealand, India, Indonesia, and Taiwan.  “Brazil is a key market for Bioiberica in the area of joint health, where we are already market leader with our native type II collagen, b-2Cool, thanks to the strategic partnership with our Brazilian partner, Ayalla,” explained Jaume Reguant, director of healthcare for Bioiberica, in a press release. “Together with them, we will continue to meet the needs of thousands of people who look to maintain healthy joints.”
