Fast Flex is manufactured by the well-known and generally trusted company GNC. The information available for Fast Flex on the GNC website is fairly limited, just covering the basics of the product, outlining the ingredients used and what they do. Fast Flex is designed to provide ‘total joint health’ for damaged, worn and unprotected joints while also relieving the pain, stiffness and inflammation associated with an aging body. It may also aid in relieving the symptoms caused by certain other joint conditions including arthritis, osteoarthritis, fibromyalgia and gout.
The GNC website features suggestions for complementary products and has a section containing a written endorsement of the Fast Flex product by one of the company medical consultants, the neurosurgeon Dr. Joseph Maroon. The product can be purchased directly from the GNC site but is also available in independent retail stores which allows for some variance in the price, which is listed by GNC as $49.99 for a one month supply (a box containing 60 packets). Unfortunately there are no customer reviews of Fast Flex on the GNC webpage, nor are there anywhere else on the internet. However, there do not appear to be any complaints about the product either, and most people would feel very secure ordering a product from a company such as GNC.
Fast Flex – Facts
Fast Flex is a product that is used to ‘kick-start’ joint repair and health. It is recommended that this product is taken for approximately 8 weeks before switching to another GNC manufactured product, Tri Flex (the company advises consulting with a doctor first). Fast Flex covers all areas of joint rejuvenation, including rebuilding and repairing existing damage using Chondroitin and Glucosamine. Both commonly-used, proven joint supplements, these substances boost each other’s joint repairing ability and provide the ‘building blocks’ needed to strengthen the cartilage that covers and protects the end of bones. In addition to this Fast Flex also uses White Willow Bark, a natural substance that acts as a powerful anti-inflammatory, MSM, an organic sulfar, and Omega-3 rich fish oil, to lubricate and provide ease of movement in the joint.
All the ingredients used in Fast Flex are deemed to be safe and should produce no ill side effects, although it must be noted that Glucosamine and Chondroitin, which in this product is sourced from shrimp, are not suitable for anyone with a shellfish allergy. While GNC states that the ingredient amounts are at full potency the actual ingredient list is not provided.
GNC has made Fast Flex easy to take, providing each dosage in single packets. Each active ingredient is contained in a separate capsule, meaning that 5 capsules are taken per serving, a number which might be off-putting to some consumers.

Most people would choose this brand over another product containing similar ingredients, simply because GNC is a name they can trust and it doesn’t require long-term use. Although Fast Flex has several capsules per dosage, the Tri Flex follow-up product is much simpler and more convenient to take.
Providing no allergies are present, Fast Flex provides a good, all-round joint treatment that includes all the necessary ingredients required by damaged, inflamed joints.
