Flexamin is an over-the-counter joint pain relief brand that is available in a number of different formulas.
The information for the Flexamin range on the company website is limited, just covering the basic details for the individual products. A customer FAQ section is provided as is a link to the Flexamin television commercial. A section headed ‘Health Research’ is actually just the company’s mission statement and links to Arthritis organizations. No actual clinical research for any of the ingredients is provided. Also, unlike many health product websites, no customer testimonials are shown.
While Flexamin is not offered for a free sample, the consumer can download printable discount coupons, redeemable in the stores where Flexamin is sold (for which the website provides a convenient list).
Flexamin – Facts
Flexamin comes in four different formulas including Triple Strength and Complete. All products contain roughly the same active ingredients with certain extra vitamins and minerals added to different formulas. Apart from this, only the ingredient amounts differ.
As with all the formulas, Flexamin Complete contains a blend of Glucosamine, Chondroitin and MSM, all commonly found in traditional joint pain relievers. Working synergistically these ingredients help to repair any damaged joint cartilage and, being the ‘building blocks’ of healthy joints, rebuild and maintain the cartilage, connective tissues and muscle in the body. The addition of Hyaluronic Acid is important for its ability to produce the lubricating synovial fluid that ensures joints move smoothly and without friction.
In this particular formula, White Willow Bark and Boswellia are used in a proprietary blend as both are effective in reducing inflammation. The digestive aid Ginger, all round longevity and mood booster SAM-e and Citrus Bioflavonoid round out the blend and their exact amounts are not provided.
