  • Mobilee® is a patented natural ingredient rich in hyaluronic acid that contributes to joint health and muscle strength
  • It is the first hyaluronic acid authorised as a complementary medicine and non-traditional ingredient for use in functional foods in the two countries 
  • 6.8 million Australians have mobility problems, of which more than two million suffer from osteoarthritis

Bioiberica has obtained authorisation to sell Mobilee®in Australia and New Zealand as a complementary medicine and non-traditional ingredient for use in functional foods. The Therapeutic Goods Administration and Food Standard Australia New Zealand found that this patented natural ingredient rich in hyaluronic acid and other components like collagen and polysaccharides can be included in medicinal supplements and food for daily consumption. Nearly seven million Australians have mobility problems, of which more than two million suffer from osteoarthritis. 

This approval is key to Bioiberica’s international expansion plan in the joint health and mobility area This year the company plans to sign different licencing and distribution agreements with local companies across the two countries”, said Jaume Reguant, director of the Bioiberica International Human Health division. 

The product's efficacy and safety have been tested in six preclinical studies and five randomised clinical studies over five years: “Mobilee® is an innovative product with health benefits, which the human body absorbs naturally. Its benefits extend beyond the advantages afforded by hyaluronic acid. Taking Mobilee® every day for at least two months helps maintain joint health and muscle function,” said Dr Martínez, head of Development at Bioiberica.

Mobilee® has also been approved by the European Commission as a Novel Food and has GRAS (Generally Recognized as Safe) status in the US.
