Joint Care Supplement GOPO® Rosehip with Galactolipids Now Available at The Vitamin Shoppe Stores Nationwide

Multiple Research Studies Demonstrate Effectiveness in Joint Care

MANCHESTER, N.H.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Jakemans, Inc. today announced the nationwide availability of GOPO®
Rosehip with Galactolipids
, a natural joint care supplement at all The
Vitamin Shoppe
stores. The joint health supplement has been
clinically shown to help reduce joint pain and stiffness1 and
will be rolled out in select U.S. retailers throughout 2016.

“We are delighted to join The Vitamin Shoppe in introducing GOPO®
Rosehip with Galactolipids to the U.S. market,” said Jonathan Groves,
President at Jakemans, Inc. “Our aligned goal of helping people achieve
optimum health and wellness makes this partnership a perfect fit.”

Groves added, “While the number of people experiencing joint problems is
increasing, few newer or more effective solutions have been available to
them. Now individuals experiencing joint problems—from senior citizens
to elite athletes—can care for their joints and continue to enjoy an
active lifestyle.”

Chronic conditions affecting the joints are wide ranging and extremely
common. As the U.S. population ages, the prevalence of arthritis, one of
the most common and disabling joint conditions, is expected to grow to
affect 25% of U.S. adults by the year 2030.2 GOPO® Rosehip
with Galactolipids is made from 100% specially cultivated natural
rosehip and is the only product of its kind to contain a high level of
GOPO®—a key component of the rosehip which may play a valuable role in
the care of joints and joint tissues.
