Vegetarian Glucosamine with MSM
Clinically proven nutrients for normal joint function*
- Regenasure® Glucosamine - Only vegetarian-sourced glucosamine; helps build joint connective tissue*
- OptiMSM® - Proven to support the structural integrity of joint cartilage*
- Hyaluronic Acid - Plays a critical role in tissue hydration and lubrication*
Clinical research has proven that the potent, all-vegetarian ingredients found in FlexMend™, along with the complementary botanical co-factors, work synergistically to support the integrity of connective tissues, manage joint-related inflammation, lubricate joints and promote overall healthy joint function.*
Regenasure® Glucosamine is the only vegetarian-source of Glucosamine available. It is not obtained from shellfish or animal sources, but from corn, and is free of contaminants typical of many shellfish-derived glucosamines. Glucosamine helps replenish the building blocks of connective tissues that are often lost during the progression of inflammatory conditions. Clinical studies reveal the usefulness of Glucosamine for the treatment of joint discomfort and other joint problems.
Employing a unique manufacturing process, OptiMSM® is purified through distillate, not crystallization, which reduces the risk of contamination. Methysulfonylmethane (MSM) provides nutritional sulfur, which is vital to the creation and regeneration of various tissues and for the structural integrity of joint cartilage.
Hyaluronic acid helps support joint hydration and lubrication, protects cartilage from abrasion and increases its elasticity and ability to absorb mechanical compression.
FlexMend™ is further enhanced by complementary herbs such as Boswellin®, Ginger extract and Turmeric extract that all demonstrate natural anti-inflammatory activity. In addition, unextracted Ginger and Turmeric are included to provide all the natural whole plant co-factors that nature created.
FlexMend™ is potency-enhanced with Futurebiotics Bioaccelerators™. Clinically-proven BioPerine®+ (piper nigrum extract) improves nutrient bioavailability, while our proprietary natural compound of Ginger extract, Trikatu, super-potent Digezyme® and Lactospore® boosts digestion and absorption.
Sodium Hyaluronate is an important component of connective tissues. Its chemical structure gives hyaluronic acid its unparalleled ability to trap water, improving the cushioning and lubrication in joints.
Healthy Joint Action Plan
Osteoarthritis (OA), known as degenerative joint disease, often results from years of wear and tear on joints and is the most common of all arthritic conditions. Weight-bearing joints, such as hips, knees and spine, are usually the most affected. Over time, cartilage that cushions the end of the bones within the joint can become split, thin or completely wear away and bone ends at the joints begin to rub together. This causes pain, stiffness and limited joint movement.
- Take Futurebiotics FlexMend™ and a comprehensive multi-vitamin and eat a diet that emphasizes high-fiber, complex carbohydrates from fruits and vegetables, whole grains and lean protein.
- Eat good fats. Omega-3 fatty acids from salmon, walnuts, flaxseed and fortified eggs, along with monounsaturated fats like canola and olive oil help sooth inflammation. Drink plenty of water.
- Including moderate exercise in you daily routine helps keep joint cartilage lubricated. Participate in low impact activities such as swimming and walking.
- Studies how that strengthening muscles helps take pressure off joints. Include strength and low-impact resistance training, along with exercises that increase balance, flexibility and range of motion.
- Isometric, yoga or other stretching exercises help increase flexibility and range of motion.
- Massage therapy encourages blood flow to joints and can help alleviate stiffness.
- Moist hot packs or soaking in a hot tub can provide relief. If joints are really sore, a cold pack can help temporarily relieve pain.
Do's and Don'ts
- Maintain a healthy weight. Every extra pound carried translates into three additional pounds of pressure on knees and hips.
- Joint injuries often occur when people are tired - don't exercise while fatigued.
Measure Your Progress
Be aware of how joints are responding to diet and exercise. Use range of motion, joint discomfort and inflammation as indicators of your success. Always include your health professional in strategies to address joint problems.
