Product overview

This product has quickly become a firm customer favourite. Our optimum strength 1,500mg Optiflex Glucosamine HCl provides our experts’ recommended amount of pure glucosamine HCl in a convenient one-a-day tablet.

Healthspan’s Optiflex Glucosamine Hydrochloride (HCl) marks a major breakthrough for glucosamine supplements – it is the premium, most advanced form of glucosamine available, providing 40% more pure glucosamine per gram than standard glucosamine sulphate 2KCl.

This special production process ensures that our glucosamine HCl is completely free from shell-fish and associated allergies, with high purity and concentration. Optiflex Glucosamine has set the new gold standard in glucosamine supplements.

Each Optiflex Glucosamine HCl tablet provides 1,500mg of glucosamine HCl per tablet, the optimum strength widely recommended by expert nutritionists.

I have bought this product from you for years and take 1500 mg daily. I know that without it I have very aching joints (proved whenever I have run out and not taken it for w while). I recommend it to everyone. However, you some time ago changed the size, shape and coating on it and now I find have great difficulty swallowing it - and on occasions I just can't take it. I am currently trying to find an alternative elsewhere.

Thank you for your review.

I dont have the tablets anymore, I buy the liquid version which I find easier to digest.
I have been taking Glucosamine for m ore than 10 years now and am convinced the
product has kept my knees and cartillage in as good condition as is possible for my
age and activities (72). For the past 8 years I have climbed in the Alps and Italian
Dolomites.

Don't actually feel any different but believe regular dose will keep me stronger in the long run rather than not taking any supplement. Have had to discontinue Ginkgo & Ginseng which is a waste of money, but did briefly enjoy the benefit of enhanced clarity of mind. Now I am back to a 'foggy head' and losing weight again!

To be honest, I wasn't sure what to expect. But after a couple of weeks I noticed my nails were a lot smoother. I have found it difficult to swallow the tablets, they are so big. So I have chewed them a bit and think this gas effected their metabolism as my nails have ridges again. Would be grateful for advice about this if anyone has it.

The product is good, but I do not like the new way of packing them. I much preferred them to be in a box/drum. I dislike the blister packs and find them clumsy and bulky to store in the cupboard.

My husband and I are in our mid/ late 50´s and have taken up cycling and power walking to keep fit and to keep "middle age spread" in check. We are doing pretty good but every once in a while we would feel the joints "creaking" or being a bit stiff. We opted for this product because we have taken a similar German product before and it helped quite a bit. The Healthspan product is more potent and we are fine just taking the once-a-day dosage - for a great price!! We feel fit and limber and have had no joint problems since. I have a good supply down in the basement (thank you Healthspan for great % offers) and wouldn´t want to be without!

Thank you for your review.

I was recommended to take this product by a Consultant when I had a knee
arthroscopy three years ago. He told me that is what he takes, together with
400mg chrondroitin. I thought if its good enough for him I will give it a go.
Of course, difficult to quantify what difference it makes, but have had no serious
joint problems.
