Properties of Flex Power
The hydrolyzed collagen by Flex Power consists on little peptides that are produced through the gelatinization and subsequent enzymatic hydrolysis of native collagen. Pre-clinical studies have proven that the intake of hydrolyzed collagen can reduce and prevent joint pain, the loss of bone density, and the aging of the skin.
The methylsulfonylmethane (MSM) is commonly used due to its anti-inflammatory properties. The administration of MSM improves joint and muscle pain, oxidative stress, and the antioxidant capacity.
Glucosamine occurs naturally in all human tissues. It stimulates the synthesis of glycosaminoglycan, proteoglycan and hyaluronic acid. Glucosamine has provided positive results in the modification of the progression of arthritis in a period of 3 years, it can be an useful choice to treat osteoarthritis.
Vitamin C contributes to the normal formation of collagen for the function of the blood vessels, bones, and cartilage. It also helps with the energy metabolism, contributes to the normal functioning of the nervous system, helps with the normal function of the immune system, contributes to the protection of the cells against oxidative stress, reduces tiredness and fatigue, helps with the regeneration of the reduced form of vitamin E, and increases the absorption of iron.
Calcium contributes to a normal blood coagulation, helps with the metabolism of the energy performance, contributes to a normal function of the muscles, it helps with a normal neurotransmission, contributes to a normal function of digestive enzymes, it plays a role in the cell division process, it is necessary for the maintenance of the bones and helps to reduce the loss of bone mineral.
The Boswellia serrata extract helps to maintain the flexibility of the joints, and suppresses the breakdown of collagen and cartilage by inhibiting the matrix metalloproteinase.
Magnesium contributes to the electrolyte balance, helps with a normal energy metabolism, helps with the functioning of the nervous system, the normal functioning of the muscles, contributes to the normal synthesis of proteins, contributes to the maintenance of the bones and teeth, and it plays a role in the cell division process.
Vitamin D contributes to the absorption and utilization of calcium and phosphorus, contributes to the normal levels of calcium in the blood, it helps with the maintenance of the bones and teeth, contributes to the maintenance of the muscle function, it helps with the function of the immune system, it plays a role in the cell division process, and reduces the risk that is related to postural instability and muscle weakness.
