What are the ingredients of Flex Protex?
The listed ingredients of Flex Protex are fairly difficult to explain. The listed ingredients are divided into two parts. The first part is a proprietary blend, and the second seems to be some vitamins which are thrown in for general health. These vitamins consist of vitamin C and vitamin D. Although vitamin C and vitamin D are effective for immune system health and the growth of bones, they are not necessarily what most customers look for when attempting to relieve joint pain, either caused by increased athletic athletic activity, or by serious forms of arthritis.What is of more concern to customers, there is very little explanation offered as to the ingredients of the proprietary blend of Flex Protex, so let's take a quick look at the ingredients of this proprietary blend and attempt to determine if any of these ingredients are effective joint care.
Firstly, the proprietary blend for Flex Protex is listed at nearly 1000 mg, which makes up the majority of the pill. These ingredients are listed as a form of glucosamine, rice flour, turmeric extract, primrose oil, chondroitin, green lipped mussel, and hyaluronic acid. Please note the green lipped mussel and hyaluronic acid are actually misspelled on the label. It is not clear if these spellings are meant to confuse customers of Flex Protex, remove liability, or simply as a sign of poor quality control. This is obviously a very bad sign.
Furthermore, it is telling that the actual ingredient amounts are not listed in the proprietary blend, although this is very important, it may not be immediately noticeable to all customers. Generally, the Flex Protex ingredients are listed in order of amount. However, the specific amounts are not listed, Therefore it can be assumed that there is an extremely small amount of chondroitin present, and perhaps larger amount of glucosamine. The presence of glucosamine and chondroitin suggest that Flex Protex may help the production of some cartilaginous tissue. However, the fact that the amount in the pills themselves is not stated, suggests that there may be no effect at all, even if Flex Protex is taken for years.
In conclusion, when asked the question, "what are the ingredients of Flex Protex?" the obvious answer is that we don't really know, since the label doesn't really say. The label lists several ingredients, most of which are probably actually the in the pill, but in unknown amounts. Since these amounts are not known, it cannot be said if there are non-listed ingredients, or ingredients in unknown amounts. Vegetable cellulose is also listed as ingredient, and this may act as filler to make up wait for the whatever space is not covered by the listed ingredients. Since these are very poor labeling and quality control practices, I suggest the buyer beware of taking Flex Protex.
