I got this product and a few others to help with some shoulder pain that I have had from a collision 4 months ago. My shoulder inflamation and pain has gone down since using this product. Since I was using multiple things at once, I can't pinpoint which ones worked and which ones didn't because all I was desperately hoping was that one of them worked. The products I bought from best price nutrition alleviated a lot of my shoulder pain as well as made my knees and elbows feel better and more solid while lifting. I can't even remember the last time I had a sore knee or elbow while taking this product, and I lift HEAVY. Try it.
This Flex Support is a great overall joint support supplement. As I have gotten older I have found that it is very important to keep my joints healthy to keep being able to perform my major lifts. I have been on this product for a few months now, and when I stopped using it I noticed an immediate drop in performance and my joint pain started to come back. I highly recommend this for anyone with joint pain or just trying to prevent it.
I used to play both tennis 6 hours a week and lift weight 6 hours a week. With this regiment my knees got messed up. I also had a shoulder bugging me. I bought this and started taking double doses for it together with omega 3 and so forth. To be totally honest I did not feel much joint relief at all from it. I think if your pain stem from muscular imbalances and overuse this will not be enough to prevent inflammation, and to be honest the inflammatory process is of benefit to the body as it brings with it healing agents into muscles the problem is the body secretes a own anti-inflammatory called cortisol which is a catabolic hormone. It makes further tears more prominent and so forth. The inflammatory process is very complex and not very well understood. A lot of research is done on it, and it is really hard to say what you want inhibited and what you want to keep. A little cortisol is probably good, as generally some inflammation is good to induce healing, but it can be to much where it does more good than harm, well I am just going away from the purpose of the review here.. I do not really know how Animal Flex is claiming to aid in joint pain but to me I go no real relief from it. Research done with msm, chondroitin, glucosamine which where positive has been done with injections and not through **** administration, so I do not know how much healing power those gives ******. I know ginger and turmeric are great anti-inflammatories, aids in immunity, brain function and so forth so this supplement definitely can be a good supplement to the diet, but not all it is supposed to be to me. If you suffer from chronic joint pain chances are you have tight muscles and imbalances that need to be addressed with mobility and stability work. I believe Animal Flex can aid joint health, but if it is worth the price is a different question. I think it can likely help certain types of pain but not other types. If it can help you, well the only way to really know is to try.
I've used this supplement lots of times and was always satisfied. It always helped me with pain & discomfort. I didn't feel any side effects. The only thing is that there are lots of big tablets. When stacked with cissus it worked even better.
This is by far the best joint supplement you can find, great price too for everything you get in this product. Have been using Flex for going on 3 years and is a must for people who pound their joints.
Not many supplements out there actually do what they claim, but for me, this one does. If I skip two days my elbows and knees start hurting from lifting weights. As long as I keep taking this product, I have no issues.
Best joint supplement I have taken to date. I have nagging pain in several joints - to the point that I often have to modify a workout because of pain. Since taking Animal Flex, I have been able to finish each workout without even thinking about my joints. I noticed positive results nearly immediately - by the second day. Only negative about this product is that it is quite a number of pills to swallow each day, but I have not noticed it upsetting my stomach in any way. I can take them on an empty or full stomach with no negative results. LOVE this product like all Animal/Universal products.
I started taking this after noticing my knees aching while going up stairs. After a couple weeks on Animal Flex, I experienced a noticeable difference. It definitely works. It really protects my joints from all of the running and lifting I do. I'm not sure how cost effective it is though if you are also taking multivitamins.
You know, no matter what joint product I switch it up to, I always end up coming back to Animal Flex. The formula is just very inclusive and the price for what you get is quite excellent. It's a product that has been on the market for so long and when you use the product for a while, you can understand why it has been one of the more popular supplements for as long as it has been out. $30 or less for 44 day's supply? Bring on the value my friend, bring on the value.
Overall this is a excellent product. It works when taken daily, and if not I actually did feel a difference. When taking this supplement I just felt better and my joints didn't make cracking or creaking sounds. For instance, when doing shoulder press before taking Animal Flex I would hear some creaking or popping in my right shoulder, but since taking this it has gone away. The only downside to this is the amount of pills that you need to take. 8 seems a bit extreme to me, and the amount is what turned my one friend off of it. In conclusion for the price, effectiveness, and dosage amount you cant o wrong. Just need to power through the 8 pills needed .
Great supplement, especially when stacked with fish oil, really relieved pain in elbows after a month of consecutive use.
I stole a couple of these from my boyfriend to see how it would react on my knees and ankles. I tore my ACL and shattered my ankle as a gymnast and now that I am older, those joints have a hard time keeping up with doing CrossFit. I tried a few off the Flex packets and they seemed to work. Joints felt more fluid and the pain I felt when lifting and squatting seemed to decrease.
I am a 37 year old lifter who has arthritis in his knees and lower back. I started lifting for the first time about a year ago, and have recently started squatting three times per week again. I take a multi with joint support, and it didn't seem like it was quite enough. I added this, and my knees, ankles and elbows have never felt better! The only drawback is that it is a ton of of pills! If you can get past that, then this is an excellent product for sore joints. It is also conveniently packaged, and contains researched and proved ingredients. Highly recommended, especially if you are older and have any joint discomfort!
This is a great product for the joints. But, you need to wait almost till the ned of the tub to relief some pain or notice the difference. I will buy it here soon and again!
Animal Flex is a great joint supplement. I have tried many joint supplements in the past and this one by far is the best one. It helped my knee pain heal very well. While I was taking this supplement I was able to squat heavier and run longer distance without feeling any pain. There are a lot of pills in a pack but you only have to take it once a day and you don't have to cycle it. I would recommend this supplement to any one, whether it's a person who has joint pain or a person without pain and would like to keep their joints strong and healthy.
