FlexPro® is a specific formulation for joint maintenance and inflammation caused by exercise. Sometimes, in addition to joint wear and tear, there is tenderness or pain, which may be due to chronic inflammation, which in turn can happen as the result of overloading from obesity, physical exercise, or a long-term inadequate diet.
All this can lead to decreased mobility and pain.
FlexPro® contains special ingredients from plants which stimulate the production of substances that soothe the joints, helping regain flexibility. These substances have been known in Asian countries for thousands of years for their powerful calming effect. The intestine also benefits from these antiinflammatory substances. FlexPro® is best used in combination with MarinePro® until hypersensitivity disappears. You can then take half of the recommended dose as maintenance.
Glucosamine, together with chondroitin, was shown to improve knee pain by 20% in 79% of patients compared to 54% in a placebo group. D.O. Clegg, Dj. Reda, CL Harris et al., "Glucosamine, chondroitin sulfate, and the two in combination for painful knee osteoarthritis" The New England Journal of Medicine, vol 354 No. 8 pp 795-808, 2006. Similar conclusions have been reached with chondoitrin sulphate in patients with hand osteoarthritis, published in the journal Arthritis & Rheumatism vol 63, November 2011.
Vitamin C is an essential step in the formation of new collagen; it is also essential for the joints.It contributes to normal function of the immune system, and this is important because many problems in the joints are an autoimmune response.
Boswellia serrata resin is used when treating the joints because of its anti-inflammatory and analgesic properties. Studies have found that the most biologically active component of this herb is 3-O-acetyl-11-keto-beta-boswellic acid.
Cat's Claw, also known as Uncaria tomentosa, is native to Peru where it has been used traditionally. It plays an important role in the immune system by increasing phagocytosis.
Turmeric or curcumin, from Curcuma longa. Early studies were done in the early 1970s, finding many of the anti-inflammatory properties in this plant and in curcumin.
It has been especially documented that turmeric reduces the amount of inflammatory compounds such as lipoxygenase, nuclear factor kappa B (NF-kB), nitric oxide, cyclooxygenase-2 (COX-2), tumor necrosis factor (TNF-α), prostaglandin 2 (PGE2) and interleukin-1 (IL-1). The effects of turmeric on joint health are related to its potent anti-inflammatory properties. They were first observed in 1980 and numerous studies have delved into the investigation of this action. A study by the University of Arizona published in 2006 showed that an extract from turmeric inhibited inflammation and joint degeneration.
Another study showed that turmeric reduced rheumatoid arthritis pain by 83% compared to a 69% improvement in a control group that used sodium diclofenate. Binu Chandran, Ajay Goel. "A Randomized, Pilot Study to Asses the Efficacy of curcumin in Patients With Active Rheumatoid Arthritis. Phytother Res (2012) Published online in Wiley Online Library DOI: 10.1002 / ptr.4639 ".
Green tea is another interesting ingredient for joint health. Among the most prominent studies, we can cite Dr. Tari Haggi's, published in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences, which showed that green tea may have benefits in the prevention of arthritis due to polyphenols that can reduce the incidence and severity of rheumatoid arthritis.
Vitamin D. Low levels of this vitamin are linked to rickets, and ensuring optimum values can help improve the absorption and proper use of calcium and phosphorus, and thus good maintenance of bones, muscles, immune system and normal blood calcium levels.
