This section may be a little technical so just do your best to try to gain a little understanding here.
If you find this too scientific, you may wish to read our ingredients page and All about glucosamine for a less technical explanation. Here we go...

Osteoarthritis (OA) is the most common type of arthritis and its typical targets are your hands, hips, knees, feet and spine. Sometimes, it will attack your knuckles, wrists, elbows and shoulders. I should mention that these are not the only areas of your body subject to attack however. There are 143 joints in the human body and any of them may be subject to osteoarthritis. When OA attacks it causes a degeneration of the cartilage and fluids that protect against inflammation.

For those of you who live with this debilitating disease, you are all too familiar with what the doctors have to say. Some will tell you to take one of those "over-the-counter" remedies. You know…products like Aspirin, Ibuprofen or Acetaminophen. (Called NSAIDs) In fact, some $8 Billion dollars a year is spent on these kinds of products in this country every year. Unfortunately, when it comes to using them to fight the pain of osteoarthritis, they can do you more harm than good.

Although you will obtain some temporary pain relief using them, there is also evidence that indicates that they will also cause a progression of osteoarthritis. Not only do they not stop joint degeneration, they are also associated with stomach ulcers and liver damage.

In the more serious cases of OA, doctors will take more extreme steps by ordering dangerous steroid injections or prescribing COX-2 inhibitors. While you might get some temporary pain relief, you are clearly more prone to dangerous side effects and they will do nothing to help you with the core of the problem. After all, what you are really seeking is two-fold. First and foremost, you want your pain to end. Secondly, you want to address the medical problem itself and end (or reverse) the progression of your OA.

Glucosamine & Osteoarthritis

Glucosamine is a "chondroprotective agent", which relieves the symptoms of OA without any side effects while at the same time slowing the progression of the disease.

Glucosamine (and chondroitin) is produced naturally within your body. However, it is often not produced in sufficient quantities causing the onset of osteoarthritis, joint pain, and cartilage degeneration. That is the reason that we must rely on synthetic products to replenish our systems.

What has happened to your body when you develop osteoarthritis is that the cartilage (that acts as a "cushion" between bones) has deteriorated. Healthy (articular) cartilage is what we need to make movement and motion of our joints pain free. In other words, cartilage allows bones to move across one another providing an ultra-smooth, slippery surface to do so. When your body lacks glucosamine, however, this all important cartilage deteriorates.

The makeup of articular cartilage

Most of the cartilage we are discussing contains between 65% and 80% water. The remainder is comprised of collagen and proteoglycans. The collagen portion of cartilage is what gives it elastic-like properties and provides the "shock absorber" qualities that you need for pain-free movement. Of equal importance, the collagen is what holds proteoglycans in place. Now, let's try to make some sense out of this.

Proteoglycans are nothing more than molecules composed of sugar and proteins. Inside your cartilage matrix they "wrap" themselves in and around the collagen fibers. So what happens then? The proteoglycans add stretching capability and they act to capture water. Remember, we already said that 65% to 80% of your cartilage is made up of water. It is this squeezing "in and out" activity as your joints are in motion that is facilitated by these glucosamine created proteoglycans. Now there is just one final ingredient we need to add to the mix.

The principal producer of both collagen and proteoglycans are chondrocytes. So long as everything is working correctly, you are going to have healthy and vibrant articular cartilage. There is however one down side here. Chondrocytes also produce enzymes that act to "destroy" the older, worn out collagen and proteoglycans. Unfortunately, one negative effect can be the overproduction of enzymes that are destroying collagen and proteoglycans. Another way of putting it is that your body is "working against itself."

When things go wrong

Once this essential part of normal joint functioning goes bad, it's a straight downhill run. Of course, that's why you are reading this material right now. You're in pain and you are looking for answers. That pain that's driving you crazy is caused by cartilage that is developing ragged edges and bone that is overgrown. It is "pockmarked" and abrasive. As the problem increases, the lining of your joints is becoming inflamed (the synovium).

The synovium is the area where nerves and nerve endings are bundled. The inescapable fact is that it's going to send out pain messages. As part of your body's defense mechanism, the synovium is fighting to produce more synovial fluid. It is this fluid that provides your cartilage with its "slippery" qualities. Unfortunately, your synovium goes into "overdrive" and the result is that too much fluid is produced. In turn, this builds up in the joint space and when this happens, things are getting out of control.

Syn-flex®: Your Solution

Syn-flex®: The solution

As we have demonstrated, Glucosamine has been clinically shown to significantly reduce the pain of osteoarthritis. In Europe, this has been an accepted fact for the past two decades and of course, this became major news in the U.S. in 2001. And when we discuss Syn-flex®, we are not talking about any ordinary Glucosamine product.

Unlike those companies who rushed to capture profits with their product offerings, the makers of Syn-flex® devoted eighteen additional months to perfecting their formula before offering it to the public. This is a summary of what we learned:

  • Glucosamine in liquid form is much more effective than the pill or capsule formulas
  • Using both Glucosamine HCL and Glucosamine Sulfate is more effective than using just one
  • The higher the grade of Glucosamine, the greater and more rapid the pain relief.
  • Pharmaceutical quality Glucosamine dramatically increases the speed of relief when compared with low to medium grade product
  • The addition of complimentary ingredients like Chondroitin, Yucca Powder, Ascorbate, Manganese (Ascorbate), Omega 3 & 6, Vitamins A, C & E, Boswellin and Bromelaine enhances the synergistic impact of Syn-flex®

The result is Syn-flex®, is one of the most powerful and effective product in the market today for osteoarthritis joint protection and cartilage health.

Company founder J. R. Rogers himself sustained a very traumatic spinal injury that left him with limited mobility in his neck and dependent on prescription painkillers. Syn-flex® returned the mobility to his neck and he no longer has to rely on the use of painkillers. He has walked in your shoes and understands as well as anyone exactly what you are going through.
