Their very high quality formulation of liquid Synflex glucosamine ensures a much greater absorption of glucosamine than do products in capsule or pill form. In fact, with Synflex liquid glucosamine, users will often feel improvements in 15-20 days of use compared to 6 weeks with capsules or pills.

Q. Why is healthy cartilage important?
A. When cartilage suffers damage from either osteoarthritis or an injury, pain will usually occur. Cartilage protects bones from contacting one another in the joints which causes pain. In many cases the damage caused by this rubbing can result in the need for surgery. Nearly 40 million people in the United States suffer from osteoarthritis. Whether you are already suffering from it, or simply want to do as much as possible to prevent it, liquid glucosamine is proving to be the safe alternative for many people.
Q. What is Glucosamine?
A. Glucosamine, such as found in Synflex, is a molecule of a type of sugar that is a key compound of the extra cellular portion of cartilage. This area is often called the “grout” between the cells of cartilage. It releases water, and thus acts as a “shock absorber” for joints. Plenty of Synflex glucosamine means plenty of protection for the joint. Glucosamine is a natural sugar already produced by your body. It’s the key ingredient in water holding molecules also formed in the body.
The more glucosamine in the body, the more water holding molecules can be produced. These are a major building blocks of healthy cartilage. The glucosamine found in Syn-flex also stimulate the production of proteins found in cartilage which serve to bind water molecules to the matrix of cartilage. The glucosamine in Synflex is made from the shells of shellfish.

Syn-flex 1500 is not suggested for pets.
