About Optiflex® Glucosamine

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.

Unlike the more common glucosamine sulphate form (predominantly sourced from shellfish) Optiflex Glucosamine HCl is produced from a sustainable corn based source by a special process of fermentation. 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.

Previously I used Glucosamine sulphate from shops at a cost of a couple of pounds. It had a good effect on my joints. For 4 months I have now used Health span's Glucosamine HCl and found that it had no positive effect on my joints. I read up on it and read that glucosamine sulphate has a proven effect on arthritic joints while glucosamine HCl has not! I am surprised that Health span sell the glucosamine derived from plants rather than from shellfish which is the one that helps arthritis sufferers. Not good news for vegetarians, I am afraid.

Healthspan always try to keep up with the latest in scientific advances, and take advice from a wide range of nutrition and medical professionals. The decision to move to glucosamine HCl was for reasons of both efficacy (GAIT study among others) and to move to a shellfish-free formulation (which is not associated with any allergies and which is suitable for vegetarians). The fact that glucosamine HCl provides 40% more glucosamine per gram than glucosamine sulphate was also considered.


All Glucosamine, whether originally in the Sulphate 2KCl or Hydrochloride form enters the intestine as Glucosamine Hydrochloride having been broken down by Hydrochloric acid naturally present in the stomach. Several studies have shown Glucosamine HCl to be highly effective but there is admittedly a larger body of evidence around Glucosamine Sulphate 2KCl simply because it has been in use longer.

We offer a no-quibble refund policy so are happy to refund or exchange this product should you wish to do so.

These gigantic tablets are impossible to swallow. They don't even have a smooth surface to make it easier. My husband, who has strong fingers, had the task of breaking them in half to aid swallowing. I will not be purchasing these again.

Thank you for your review - We are sorry to hear about the difficulties experienced with the size of our Glucosamine. We will certainly pass your comments on to our Product Development Department.

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.

Thank you for your review.

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!
