Read about the Flex-Connect/MSM-Vitamin C clinical study
Suggested Use: 2 capsules 1–3 times per day (45 minutes after a meal) with plenty of water. We highly recommend pairing Flex Connect Plus with our co-formulated MSM/Acerola C at a 2:1 ratio, as well as the topical Cream Whole Hemp .
Joint pain? Arthritis? Inflammation? Herbal Products & Development has the formula to relieve the symptoms of joint pain, tenderness, swelling, and the difficulties of joint mobility associated with osteoarthritis. Joint cartilage contains large molecule proteoglycans that give strength and resistance while providing the flexibility necessary for compression involving motion. Osteoarthritis, or degenerative joint disease, is the wearing away of cartilage and tissue between joints. Flex-Connect Plus was formulated with synergistic ingredients that all work together to provide the nutritional support that connective tissue cells need while helping to restore and repair them.
Flex Connect Plus contains:
Serrapeptase: A high protease enzyme complex and anti-inflammatory that reduces swellings and tenderness in all forms anywhere in the body. Serrapeptase has a general immunomodulating ability and, therefore, aids with any imbalanced auto-immune condition. Serrapeptase is also a blood cleanser. It removes toxins, impurities, and oxidizes dead and worn-out protein from the bloodstream, and speeds up the healing process.
Glucosamine Sulfate: Glucosamine is the “glue” that holds tissue together. It is an amino acid sugar (saccharide) containing chitin, the well-known structural support molecule of ocean life. It hydrates tissues and joints, helps make proteoglycans that provide the flexibility needed for joint motion, and keeps up the health of the body’s cartilage. It also helps the body repair and regenerates ligaments, muscles, and new layers of skin and bone. The sulfate form is natural to the body (in the cartilage and synovial fluid) and is the most well-known of its assimilable forms.
High Protease Enzyme complex: All plant-based containing protease, amylase, lipase, serrapeptase complex, bromelain, and papain. Helps normalize blood clotting, reduces edema (excess fluids), replaces dead and worn-out tissues, removes impurities, and speeds up the healing process. Enzymes, by breaking down foods, help keep the bloodstream clean. Helps the auto-immune system respond to chronic inflammation. Increases food absorption and helps prevent antigens in the blood which can lead to inflammation. Bromelain helps accelerate wound healing and the repairing of inflamed tissues.
Turmeric extract (95% curcumin): Well-known antioxidant, liver protector, and blood purifier. Reduces inflammation and supports the circulatory system. One of the best substances for lipid peroxidation (stops fat rancidity). Helps ease joint pain and flare-ups. Improves varicose veins and morning stiffness. Turmeric and ginger are extremely versatile at pain reduction.
Boswellia extract (65% Boswellic acids): Very important for pain relief. Improves osteoarthritis conditions by shrinking inflamed tissue. Reduces and prevents the formation of leukotrienes which can lead to inflammation. Reduces tissue deterioration. Improves blood supply to joint tissue. Lessons stiffness and provides strength.
Horse chestnut extract (20% Aescin): Its potent anti-inflammatory properties help relieve symptoms of chronic venous insufficiency and improve microcirculation. Reduces varicose veins by improving blood flow. Contains antioxidants and Aescin, a cancer-fighting compound.
Ginger: Provides a wide range of benefits. Proteolytic (protein digestion), pain relief, detoxification, contains minerals and enzymes and inhibits inflammation. An important antioxidant.
Each bottle contains 120 veggie caps with 800 mg of nutrients per capsule.
The results of the clinical study performed on Flex-Connect Plus™ and MSM-Vitamin C demonstrated a collective improvement of 97.8% in the following tested markers/parameters:
1. Joint pain2. Stiffness3. Range of motion4. Cartilage support5. Inflammation
The proportions of responders within 1 week of treatment were as follows: 22.3% for placebo and 49.6% for the active supplement. Noteworthy is that after 4 weeks of treatment, the placebo group was still significantly lower from baseline for any of the WOMAC scores, compared with the group ingesting the active supplement. Response to treatment to the Flex-Connect Plus™ and MSM-Vitamin C group continued to increase for the duration of the study protocol. The response rate at week 4 was significantly higher for the group ingesting the active supplement group (69.2%), compared with the placebo (28.6%). At the conclusion of the study, week 12, the response rate for the active supplement group continued to increase compared with the placebo: 95.6% and 29.8%, respectively.
When the results came in we celebrated the formulation of a product that could truly help the millions of people worldwide who suffer from this degenerating disease. Our dedication to quality and gold-standard research sets our Flex Connect Plus formula apart from the rest in the marketplace.
