A formula designed to aid in joint swelling and discomfort related to inflammatory conditions
FlexaQur is not only offering a HCL form of Glucosamine, but is also including the Sulfate form of Chondroitin.
Chondroitin Sulfate is the major GAG present in cartilage and a molecule made of and 200 times larger than Glucosamine. Chondrotin sulfate therefore is less readily utilized for biosynthesis of cartilage, but has been found to provide important additional benefits by inhibiting enzymes that degrade cartilage tissue. Chondrotion Sulfate has also been known for its effectivenes in the treatment of back pain and deterioration.
Glucosamine HCL and Chondrotion Sulfate (and other glycosaminoglycans of GAGS) have long been known to nutritionally oriented practitioners as chondroprotective agents and utilized as nutrient arthritis therapy. Jason Theodosakis, MD of the University of Arizona College of Medicine published his book, THE ARTHRITIS CURE, and dramatically increased the general public awareness of and demand for these.
Chrondroprotective agents are most beneficial for the osteoarthritis ( wear and tear) form of arthritis. Glucosamine HCL is the most is the most basic precursor in the biosynthesis of GAGS and consequently of cartilage.
Glucosamine is synthesized in the body but often in insufficient quantities, particularly as people age. It has been found that glucosamine levels may be increased through dietary supplements, stimulating the body s ability to repair and regenerate cartilage tissue.
FlexaQur combines these chondroprotective agents with two synergistic ingredients bromelain and boswellin. Bromelain is a proteolytic enzyme, extracted from pineapple, which inhibits edema and swelling of the joints.
Boswellin is a traditional Ayurvedic herb that has been demonstrated by modern research to be a safe, potent anti-inflammatory and anti-rheumatic agent. FlexaQur is made in a capsule instead of tablet for easy breakdown and absorption, and only made of the highest pharmaceutical grade purest form.
Surveys indicate that over 40 million Americans suffer from osteoarthritis, including 80% of those over 50 years of age. Conventional therapy for osteoarthritis has longed consisted primarily of providing pain relief through the use of aspirin and more recently nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs). While these drugs do provide short-term
relief, in the long run they are toxic and accelerate the deterioration of cartilage, while leading to serious stomach, liver, and kidney damage.
