Joint Protection & Support
Are you tired of the achy knees when you get out of bed? How about your morning walks and jogs that leave you stiff all day? Say goodbye to those days!
Inflammation can also play a role with stiff achy joints that make your back, hands, feet and even legs hurt.
As the years go by your joints can take a real beating! But it doesn’t have to be that way. Ultra Flex helps you to keep moving without interrupting your active lifestyle.
Relieve those aches and pains with Ultra Flex’s key ingredients, which work to boost its Glucosamine and Chondroitin formula:
Boswellia - also known as Indian frankincense, has been known to reduce inflammation associated with osteoarthritis (OA), rheumatoid arthritis and bursitis. In a clinical trial, boswellia was tested as a treatment for knee OA. Researchers recruited 30 people with knee OA and gave half the group a daily supplement of boswellia; others received a placebo. Participants taking boswellia extract reported significant pain reduction and much-improved physical functioning than those taking placebo. Results were seen in as little as seven days.
Turmeric - has the ability to slow down naturally-occurring cell death in joint tissue, which can help preserve joints. Turmeric also relieves joint stiffness that happens with aging. It also reduces inflammation associated with osteoarthritis, rheumatoid arthritis and bursitis. In many studies it was shown, time and time again, that turmeric-treated patients' joints were less swollen and tender than the placebo groups.
Bromelain - which is derived from pineapples, has many natural pain-relieving abilities. It may be used to speed healing from an injury or surgery because of its anti-inflammatory properties. It also helps sinusitis because of its ability to thin mucus in the nasal cavity. Bromelain also has analgesic characteristics making it an amazing treatment for acute or chronic joint pain. Many studies have shown that bromelain can be as effective as anti-inflammatory drugs for dealing with joint pain. In some cases, it’s been proven more effective without the harmful side effects.
Quercetin - an important antioxidant that reduces inflammatory pain. A recent study was conducted in 40 Japanese subjects with symptomatic knee OA. Subjects were randomly assigned a supplement of glucosamine, chondroitin and quercetin daily for 16 weeks (the GCQ group), or a placebo. The results, based on the Japanese Orthopaedic Association criteria, showed that participants were significantly improved at Week 16 or earlier in the GCQ group compared to the placebo group. During follow-up, doctors also discovered type II collagen was improved in the GCQ group.
