Combat Osteoarthritis and prevent joint pain with Osteo Biflex Advanced Double Strength!
Unlike pain relievers, which offer only temporary pain relief, Osteo-Bi-Flex actually promotes long-term joint flexibility, health and support without side effects by helping to improve the health of joints and cartilage over time. As our bodies age, the ability to produce some of the nutrients necessary for cartilage building declines. Double Strength Osteo-Bi-Flex contains the clinically studied dosage of glucosamine (1500mg) and chondroitin (1200mg) in just two caplets per day. Together, these nutrients naturally help to maintain and rebuild cartilage for all your joints as it helps prevent joint pain.
What is glucosamine?
Glucosamine is an amino saccharide that occurs naturally in the body. Glucosamine is used by the body as a precursor for cartilage synthesis. Glucosamine is also necessary to keep cartilage tissue lubricated and maintain its naturally slippery texture.
What is chondroitin sulfate?
Chondroitin sulfates are long chains of sugar units which help attract and hold fluid into the cartilage. Chondroitin sulfate also promotes cartilage regeneration and inhibits the activity of harmful enzymes that break down the cartilage.
How do glucosamine and chondroitin work together?
Working together, glucosamine and chondroitin stimulate the synthesis of new cartilage while inhibiting the action of cartilage-destroying enzymes. Each serving of Osteo Bi-Flex contains the clinically studied dosage of both glucosamine and chondroitin to ensure delivering its benefits.*
When can I expect to begin feeling better?
Most joint deterioration typically occurs over several years and cannot be renewed over night. Individual results will vary, but you should expect to see benefits from use of Osteo Bi-Flex in as little as 4 weeks (and as little as 2 weeks with our Fast Acting Formula). Taking the product as directed on a daily basis is important since the nutritional ingredients in Osteo Bi-Flex work gradually over time. Please be patient-we are confident that you will be pleased with the results.
Can I crush the caplets? Will the potency be affected?
Yes, the caplets may be crushed. The potency will not be affected. Osteo Bi-Flex is also available in a softgel form for those who prefer an alternative to caplets.
When using Osteo Bi-Flex, can I take the daily dosage at one time?
Yes, the same benefit will result if you take the daily dosage together or spread them throughout the day.
Are there any side effects to this product?
There are no major side effects based on the studies done on both glucosamine and chondroitin. In rare cases, some individuals may experience slight gastrointestinal disturbance or mild stomach upset. If you are taking medication or have any specific health conditions, it is always best to check with your physician before adding anything new to your diet.
I take a prescription drug. Can I take Osteo Bi-Flex with my prescription?
Always consult with your physician and pharmacist concerning drug interactions if you are under a physician's care or are taking any medication.
Will this product have an effect on my blood sugar levels?
No, Osteo Bi-Flex should not affect blood sugar levels. Glucosamine is a natural amino sugar. These amino sugars have a different structure and function than blood sugar (glucose). Amino sugars do not affect blood glucose levels. It is always best to check with your physician before adding anything new to your diet or if you have any specific health conditions.
Does taking Osteo Bi-Flex cause water retention?
While Osteo Bi-Flex helps lubricate joints, it will not cause systemic bodily water retention. Healthy joints hold a large quantity of water, which gives the joint a rubbery, gel-like consistency. Glucosamine and chondroitin sulfate are building blocks of a protein-sugar complex found in the joints. These complexes attract and hold water, which is important for lubrication and carrying nutrients to the joints. These protein-sugar complexes are not distributed systematically throughout all tissues in the body and, therefore, do not cause systemic water retention. However, their function in attracting and holding water is essential for maintaining healthy, mobile joint function.
I am allergic to shellfish. Should I take this product?
Always consult with your physician or allergist with any questions about your condition before taking this product. The glucosamine in Osteo Bi-Flex is derived from shellfish and it is possible that an allergic reaction may occur if you are allergic to shellfish. This is why Osteo Bi-Flex has the following caution: If you are allergic to shellfish, please consult your health care professional before taking this product.
I am allergic to sulfate. Can I take this product if it has chondroitin sulfate in it?
Sulfate is naturally found within our bodies. There are many people who are allergic to the "sulfonamide" family or to products containing "sulfites" as preservatives. Osteo Bi-Flex has neither of these chemical groups. Speak with your doctor if you are not sure what chemical or food product caused your reaction in the past.
Are there any color additives in the newer formulation of Osteo Bi-Flex?
All of the Osteo Bi-Flex products, except Regular Strength, contain minimal amounts of colorant that are added to enhance the appearance of the product, and to help consumers distinguish Osteo Bi-Flex from other supplements they may be taking.
What is MSM and how will it affect benefit me?
MSM is an organic sulfur compound that exists naturally in foods. MSM provides a source of sulfur, an essential nutrient. Osteo Bi-Flex Plus MSM provides consumers with the opportunity to incorporate MSM into their joint healthcare.
Why were other ingredients like Boron, Manganese and Vitamin C added to the products?
We continually look for new ways to improve our Osteo Bi-Flex products. Most recently, we have added Boron, Manganese and Vitamin C to our Double Strength and Triple Strength varieties since these additional ingredients can have a role in maintaining joint health.
