Basel, Switzerland, 17 December 2020 – Body&Fit, Glanbia Performance Nutrition's direct-to-consumer brand, and Lonza today announced a collaboration to expand Body&Fit's nutrition, supplements and dietary solutions globally utilizing Lonza's Duocap® capsule portfolio and specialty nutrition ingredients.

As a regional leader in sports nutrition and dietary supplements, Body&Fit is dedicated to providing consumers with products to enhance their sports performance and healthy lifestyle goals for the past 25 years. This latest partnership with Lonza, a complete solutions provider for the nutritional industry, helps fulfill Body&Fit's promise to help consumers meet their fitness goals.

With a capsule-in-a capsule design, Lonza's Duocap® technology provides a unique delivery format enabling combined dosing of ingredients that may otherwise be incompatible.

The first two Duocap® products for Body&Fit, Beauty Skin Duo and Pro B Duo have already been launched. Both products using titanium dioxide (TiO2) -free inner capsule, tapping into the clean label consumer trend.

Body&Fit has plans to launch three additional products for immunity health and sleep, mood and anxiety in early 2021. All three supplements will feature Lonza's Duocap® capsule technology.

Additionally, Body&Fit is developing a premium joint health and support supplement, utilizing Lonza's world-class TiO2-free hard capsules portfolio as well as patented ingredient UC-II® undenatured type II collagen, which is clinically proven to significantly improve mobility and joint comfort. This will make Body&Fit one of the first online direct-to-consumer (D2C) brands to provide their consumers with the latest solution for joint health.

A key element of the collaboration is the exclusive development of an intra-workout product featuring one of Lonza's latest ingredients, Muscleguard™ formulation, which is a unique blend that delivers pre-, intra- and post-workout support.
