GNC Triflex is a combination of ingredients to improve joint mobility. The two main ingredients in the formula are glucosamine and chondroitin. Both are proven to improve joint function and mobility, but it takes long-term use to realize optimal results. We found some pretty good information on the supplement from GNC, but the product description is not the heart of that information. There are more than 50 product reviews for GNC Triflex. Those product reviews are responses from real people having used the supplement and those responses are extremely important to the user.

Triflex is not a weight loss supplement, but it may help the user lose weight. One of the key aspects of weight loss is exercise. If your joints are in pain, you don’t want to exercise. GNC Triflex could improve joint function enough to get you moving so you lose more weight.

List of Ingredients

Ingredients:

  • Sodium
  • Vitamin C
  • Glucosamine HCl
  • Chondroitin Sulfate Sodium
  • Methylsulfonyl-Methane
  • Hyaluronic Acid

Product Features

Before we take a look at the ingredients and how they work to improve joint health and mobility, it is important to reveal that at least one of the ingredients is derived from shrimp. If you have an allergy to shrimp or shellfish of any kind it is important to avoid this supplement.

The two main ingredients, as stated above, are glucosamine and chondroitin. These have been used for joint support for more than a decade. Supplements should contain at least 1,500 mg of glucosamine and 1,200 mg of chondroitin, according to some medical literature. This is exactly the amount in GNC Triflex, so it looks like GNC did their research. What we didn’t find was information on how long you have to take the supplement to notice the full effect, even in the health notes on the GNC website.

Advantages

  • GNC Triflex contains proven ingredients known to improve joint health and reduce joint pain.
  • The proven amount of glucosamine and chondroitin are included in the Triflex formula.
  • This supplement can be combined with other weight loss supplements.
  • May help dieters suffering from painful joints get up and start moving.

Disadvantages

  • Will not help the dieter lose weight directly.
  • There is no mention that glucosamine and chondroitin takes weeks to start working.
  • GNC Triflex is rather expensive at about $60 a bottle as of 2012.

Conclusion

GNC Triflex is a supplement with proven ingredients. We like that in a supplement, but this time around the ingredients are not used for weight loss. If a dieter needs help relieving joint pain, including pain associated with arthritis, GNC Triflex may help.

    I have been taking triflex for the past two months and really believe that it is helping to reduce my back pain. Doctors tell me that nothing medically can be done and prescribe pain killers. I am now able to play golf again so I will continue to take triflex at least for a couple more months. My chiropractor has noticed a big improvement. How long can I take this product?

    I have used TriFlex Extra Strength for about 2 years now for a severely damaged Metatarsal Joint in my foot. It has actually made me think that my foot was not as bad as it was and pain was gone by 80% to sometimes 100%. I ran out recently and I didn’t give it much thought as I thought my foot was better. After a few days of no TriFlex I could barely walk for a week….just went and bought it again and my foot is getting better each day. It was already in my system so it didn’t take long to take the pain away again. I need surgery now on this foot and this pill has taken the pain away for so long that I didn’t realize I still had a problem! Amazing product! But not cheap!

    I suffered for 15 years from Patella Femoral Syndrome, which had worn down my cartilage and caused numerous dislocations in both knees. After having my knees scoped and scraped last year it revealed a lot of arthritis had been growing under my knee caps. It has been scraped but continues to invade my knees. I’ve been told to expect a knee replacement in my future. Having said this I have been taking Triflex (which includes chondroitin, glucosamine and MSM) as well as Triple Strength Fish Oil with Joint Support for 6 months and have no pain and the inflammation has subsided I have only had 2 or 3 days of mild discomfort in these 6 months and have been recommending these products to everyone. I once thought I’d always suffer with this and I admit the surgery helped but I swear by these products.

    Worked well with my joint pain, but I suffered from severe dizziness while taking Triflex. Had to stop.

    A friend of mine recommended me to take GNC Triflex due to my joint paint. I have taken it for 2 weeks and do not see any improvement. How long does it takes for me to see some improvement.

    I play a lot of badminton. When I was about 48 my knees began to buckle during play. I stopped playing for about a year. I was then introduced to glucosamine – not GNC triflex, it was purchased from Australia and the dosage was about 1000 mg. After using it for about 3 months – a bottle of 120 caplets my knees healed and was playing the game for another 8 years. I was off glucosamine duing the 8 years. Now the knees are showing signs of wear and tear. I am about 90 kgs. I have stopped playing for the last 2 years. The knees have been excruciatingly painful. The pain shifts from one knee to the others. I have seen the doctors and have been treated variously. They tell me that the ultimate is knee replacement. Climbing up and down the stairs are a chore. Sleeping at night is disturbed whenever I shift positions. Walking is very labourious. Considering injecting chondroitin as an alternative.
