Flex JC contains hyaluronic acid providing joint and cartilage support.
Joint and Cartilage Support provides exactly what your body needs to stay active and flexible. Research indicates that the ingredients in this formula can help rebuild, repair, and support hydration for a healthy joints and cartilage.
Gematria’s FLEX JC formula consists of the most powerful compounds ever studied for relieving joint and skeletal pain while supporting the rebuilding and repairing the health of joints, ligaments, tendons, and cartilage. Instead of just masking symptoms, research indicates that these nutrients are restoring the glide and sponginess of protective cartilage, improving function while providing relief. These ingredients include MSM, Chondroitin, Glucosamine, and vegetarian sourced Halyuronic Acid.
Hyaluronic Acid is the major cushioning component in joint cartilage. It absorbs and holds water for joint resilience and cushioning and mobility. It also holds water in the skin for firmness and hydration that may help reduce fine lines and wrinkles and help you look younger. Hyaluronic Acid research has shown it to help rebuild joint cartilage, increase joint lubrication, and help relieve inflammation and discomfort.
Together, Chondroitin and Glucosamine have shown benefits of repairing joints and relieving joint pain beyond the results of either being used alone. FLEX JC supplies both of these compounds in the ratio that has provided the best synergistic benefits. Whereas some companies use lower quality Chondroitin, FLEX JC uses the elite quality low molecular weight Chondroitin shown to be effective in clinical studies.
With the addition of MSM, you can’t find a better formula for relieving musculoskeletal pain through this unique combination of effects. Perhaps most impressively, MSM directly reduces the conduction of pain fibers relieving pain at the level of the nerves.
In addition to supporting joint health, other reported benefits of these ingredients include better growth of hair and nails, increased skin hydration with reduction of wrinkles, improved blood lipid profiles, cardiovascular health support, and detoxification benefits.

GLUCOSAMINE SULFATE: Glucosamine is a normal component of joint cartilage required for shock absorption. The more severe the arthritis, the more Glucosamine is reduced in the joints. Taking Glucosamine has been shown to reverse this process, stimulating the repair of cartilage cells. Human clinical studies have shown that Glucosamine protects and rejuvenates joint cartilage and reduces joint pain. One three-year arthritis study showed that the untreated placebo group had significantly increased cartilage damage while the Glucosamine treatment group showed excellent preservation and repair of their cartilage. For the relief of joint pain, studies have shown Glucosamine to be equal to or superior to ibuprofen (also known as Motrin or Advil).
CHONDROITIN SULFATE: Along with Glucosamine, Chondroitin is a normal component of joint cartilage required for shock absorption. In addition, Chondroitin increases lubrication in the joint space and reduces enzymes that can harm the joints. Studies have shown that persons using Chondroitin significantly reduced their intake of pain relieving drugs. In persons with knee arthritis, the placebo group showed significant joint destruction on X-Ray studies after one year, whereas the subjects taking Chondroitin showed complete preservation of the joint space. Impaired nutrient delivery to joints can be a major factor in causing pain and contributing to joint degeneration. Studies indicate that taking Chondroitin can improve nutrient transport in the joint, and thus promote cartilage replacement and repair. In addition, there is evidence that Chondroitin may help to lower blood lipids, strengthen the walls of blood vessels, and help to reduce cardiovascular health risks.
HYALURONIC ACID: Hyaluronic Acid is the major cushioning complex in joint cartilage. It absorbs and holds water for joint resilience and cushioning and mobility. It also holds water in the skin for firmness and hydration that may help reduce fine lines and wrinkles and help you look younger. Hyaluronic Acid has been shown to help rebuild joint cartilage, increase joint lubrication, and help relieve inflammation and discomfort. Hyaluronic Acid synergistically enhances the joint benefits of Glucosamine or Chondroitin or both used together. Some companies use size and source molecules that can be inflammatory and give adverse results, whereas FLEX JC uses the optimum molecular weight to give excellent results for joints and skin and connective tissues.
METHYLSULFONYLMETHANE (MSM): This organic sulfur compound excels at relieving musculoskeletal pain through a unique complex of effects. Perhaps most impressively, MSM directly reduces the conduction of pain fibers relieving pain at the level of the nerves. In addition, MSM also reduces inflammation, eases muscle spasm, improves circulation, and lessens the formation of scar tissue. As with the other three components in the FLEX JC, clinical studies have shown that MSM can preserve and repair joint cartilage. MSM also delivers biologically active sulfur to the body that results in generating sulfur amino acids for a wide range of benefits that include general tissue repair, tissue detoxification (including clearing toxic heavy metals), and relief of allergic symptoms.
The glucosamine sulfate in this formula is derived from crustaceans. People allergic to shellfish should consult with their physicians before consuming this product.
