People who exercise daily or suffer from obesity may experience joint problems. FLX’s formula targets joint health through its four main ingredients Chondroitin (typically from shark cartilage), Glucosamine, MSM and Celadrin. Chondroitin is found in medications that treat osteoarthritis. Recently, the National Institutes of Health put forth a study testing the effects of Chondroitin combined with Glucosamine. The trials went on for six months and the results showed no significant proof that this combination had any effect on joint health. However, a second study produced results suggesting that the combination could have a positive effect on those feeling moderate to severe pain. Regardless of the NIH test results, Chondroitin is typically recommended for moderate joint pains. Celadrin supposedly lubricates joints and prevents minor joint pains. This claim is not supported by any clinical trials. There have been numerous clinical studies involving animals and humans suggesting that MSM could be used to treat Osteoarthritis, Seasonal Allergic Rhinitis, and interstitial cystitis.
