DESCRIPTION

Healthful – Flex™

Supplement Highlights

• Vitamin C – needed to maintain healthy collagen production for the formation of connective tissue in skin, ligaments, tendons, cartilage, and bones. A deficiency of vitamin C and its role in collagen production can result in altered cartilage production and its repair.*

• Silica (as silica dioxide) – Silica is found throughout the body and is required to give the tissues strength and stability. It is a structural part of collagen, the glue that holds body tissues together. A deficiency would contribute to the breakdown of the collagen weakening tissues throughout the body such as cartilage and bone. It is also required for healthy synovial fluid and tendons, and is part of the skin, nails, hair, connective tissue, blood vessels, and the eyes.*

• OptiMSM® – (Methylsulfonylmethane) a natural source of organic sulfur made in America, is a natural anti-inflammatory and required for healthy bone, cartilage, tendons, Iigaments, and synovial fluid for proper lubrication of the joints. Works with selenium in the production of glutathione peroxidase, a powerful antioxidant that protects the cells against free radicals and inflammation.*

• Glucosamine sulfate – stabilized in a sodium base for maximum effectiveness in supporting healthy cartilage production. Other forms, such as glucosamine hydrochloride, are not as effective because sulfur is critical because of its involvement in the manufacture of healthy cartilage tissue.*

• HB Collagen™ – Proprietary Hydrolyzed Chicken Collagen Extract as Type I, II and III)- This natural source of high quality and highly absorbable chicken collagen contains collagen I, II and III, glucosamine sulfate, chondroitin sulfates A, B, and C, cartilage matrix glycoprotein (CMGP), hyaluronic acid, and other mucopolysaccharides, also called proteoglycans, and amino acids found to support the structure and function of joints, bones, skin, and cardiovascular system.*

Hyaluronic Acid Studies
Why Healthful – Flex Does Not Contain Chondroitin Sulfate from (Bovine) Cattle

• Minerals from Albion Labs as patented true amino acid chelates for maximum absorption and utilization such as magnesium, manganese, zinc, copper, boron and molybdenum. These minerals do not require hydrochloric acid to digest them. Other poorly chelated or non-chelated mineral forms such as gluconate, carbonate, sulfate, and oxide are difficult to absorb and create digestive disturbances.*

Minerals in the right forms such as true chelate and di-malate are important for proper absorption without the negative side effects and vital to joint health because they are involved in the following areas:
Required for Hyaluronic Acid (HA) production, a major component of joint tissue. It helps to hold lubricating moisture (synovial fluid) in joints and cartilage, which affects their resilience, elasticity, and strength. Also has anti-inflammatory properties. *
Required for healthy synovial fluid production and consistency for proper lubrication of the joints. *
Required for healthy production and maintenance of cartilage and bone and the support tissues tendonsligaments, and muscles.*
Required for DNA/RNA repair and their functions for healthy cells that make up the joint structures and tissues throughout the body. Failure to repair the DNA/RNA
contributes to weakened cells that make up body tissues such as cartilage and bone resulting in their deterioration and eventual destruction. *
Required for production of SOD1, SOD2, SOD3 and Glutathione Peroxdiase, powerful free radical scavengers (antioxidant enzymes) that protect the joint tissue,
and other cells, from free radical damage due to oxygen and other free radicals, and control inflammation. *
Required for healthy blood sugar control. Chromium along with magnesium, manganese, and zinc assist in the proper utilization of insulin for healthy uptake of blood glucose and efficient absorption of amino acids for repair of body tissues such as cartilage, bone, tendons, ligaments, and muscles, including the heart. *

More Information 
Zinc (as zinc bisglycinate chelate) TRACCS®**
Essential for activation of key enzymes involved in the production of healthy cartilage cells, synovial fluid, and bone tissue. Enhances Super Oxide Dismutase activity for maximum antioxidant protection which reduces inflammation. A key mineral in DNA repair. *
More Information 
Copper (as copper bisglycinate chelate) TRACCS®**
Works with vitamin C for healthy elastin and collagen production and bone formation and assists in maintaining Super Oxide Dismutase, a free radical scavenger that protects the cartilage form inflammation and damage. *
More Information
Manganese (as manganese bisglycinate chelate) TRACCS®**
Essential for activation of key enzymes involved in the production of healthy cartilage cells, synovial fluid, and bone tissue. Enhances Super Oxide Dismutase activity for maximum antioxidant protection which reduces inflammation. *
More Information

Found to be effective in some cases of gouty arthritis. Essential for proper sulfur utilization.
More Information
Sodium (from glucosamine sulfate sodium) Protects glucosamine sulfate from deterioration due to moisture in the air and prevents the bacteria in the intestine from breaking it down rendering it less effective. Sodium is found naturally in all foods and is essential in maintaining a healthy body.
Not to be confused with common table salt.*
More Information
OptiMSM® (methylsulfonylmethane)
Source of biologically active organic sulfur necessary for the healthy production and stabilization of the connective tissue matrix of cartilage, bones, tendons, and ligaments. Works with selenium in the production of glutathione peroxidase, a powerful antioxidant that protects the cells against free radicals and inflammation. Demonstrated to be safe, natural and most effective in treating many types of pain and inflammatory conditions.*

OptiMSM®
(Methylsulfonylmethane) is a naturally occurring nutrient found in the normal diets of humans and almost all other animals. MSM is made up of 34% sulfur, the fourth most abundant mineral in the human body. This versatile nutrient supports healthy, active lifestyles and benefits multiple structures and functions within the body, including connective tissues and the respiratory system.

Joint Health
– Several pre-clinical and clinical studies support the efficacy of MSM in supporting joint health and range of motion. Research shows that MSM reduces inflammatory markers
that damage cartilage as we age, protecting its integrity. Efficacy of methylsulfonylmethane (MSM) in osteoarthritis pain of the knee:
