What is Joint Synergex?

Synergy is a term often used by nutritionists when the benefits of combining  certain ingredients are greater than the sum of their parts. Formulated by nutrition experts, Joint Synergex provides an advanced combination of nutrients that support your body in several different and complementary ways.

Optiflex Glucosamine HCl is 100% shellfish-free and provides 40% more pure glucosamine per gram than ordinary glucosamine sulphate 2KCl. Glucosamine occurs naturally in the body and is a component of joint cartilage.

Chondroitin Sulphate 90% works synergistically with glucosamine. Joint Synergex contains a superior, low molecular weight chondroitin providing greater bioavailability than other forms.

MSM stands for Methylsulphonylmethane – a naturally occurring organic sulphur compound that provides the building blocks of glycosaminoglycans, key structural components of cartilage. This makes it the perfect partner for glucosamine and chondroitin.

Molybdenum complements the actions of glucosamine perfectly because it contributes to normal sulphur amino acid metabolism. Sulphur is required for joint cartilage creation.

Bromelain is an enzyme extracted from the stem of the pineapple plant and is often taken alongside glucosamine due to its complementary actions.

Omega 3 fish oils have many beneficial effects. Joint Synergex contains a premium, highly bioavailable form of omega 3 fish oil that is double distilled, filtered and odour-neutralised. Furthermore, our fish oil has been granted ‘Friend of the sea’ certification.

In light of recent changes to our fish oils, our capsule shells have switched from marine-source gelatin to Halal certified animal-source gelatin. Animal-source gelatin is more durable than marine-source gelatin, therefore reducing the risk of your capsules leaking and making them easier to remove from the blister pack. For information on how this change may affect any special dietary requirements you may have, please contact our call centre on 0800 73 123 77 where one of our highly-trained product advisors will be happy to help.

I have been using this product for numerous years and I definitely think it helps with my joint problems.

22 March 2017

No discernible advantage seen over the weeks. Previously took glucosamine and omega and thought there would be added advantages to joints with this product. None noticed. They are extremely large tablets to take

18 March 2017

I believe in synergy with vitamins and minerals. So I am happy to get some synergy of essential joint supporters!

Thank you for your review.

I love the fact that there are days marked on the back of the packets - I'm always forgetting whether I've taken my tablets on a particular day! I'm hoping for some relief after I've been taking them for a few months (I'm on my second week so far).

Thank you for your feedback and we hope you find these to be of benefit for you.

Big to take, but recently was stranded without them for a week when the car broke down, I definitely felt the lack at the end if the week, joint pain and stiff

Presume they are doing me good. Have not stopped taking them, so don't know what I'd be like without them

17 February 2017

Love this and have taken it for years! I have tried not taking it and soon know that it was not the right decision so I keep buying it because it DOES make a difference.

Thank you for your review - It's wonderful to hear you are happy with our products and find our Joint Synergex beneficial.

It helps my osteoarthritis.

It's great to hear you are pleased with the products - Nicola

Excellent - takes a couple of months to start to work, but after taking for several months my knees feel stronger and the pain has almost vanished. They are much more effective than prescribed medication. My GP was delighted! Long moor walks are no longer a problem.

I have used this product from Healthspan for years and always found the purchases of very high quality and have never encountered any problems.

It's great to hear you are pleased with the products.


31 January 2017

First time that I have used these so I will have to wait.

We would recommend this product be taken for a minimum of 6 to 8 weeks, however maximum benefits may not be obtained until at least 3 to 4 months of continuous usage.

Purchased as I was diagnosed in DEC 2016 with a degenerating disc at L4/5 having had sciatica for past seven months at that point. This stuff won't cure the problem but I am hoping may help further wear to other discs. So far, after two weeks of taking it, it is too early to say whether or not I feel any real benefits.
The morning tablets I can swallow by breaking each one in half. The two evening tablets are not so easy. I pierce the jelly one and spit the empty shell out as it is just too big to swallow and the other tablet has no break line on it so I have to wet it for a moment, then break it and then swallow a crumbling, foul tasting, bitter two halves. I manage but it is horrid. I am not a good tablet swallower but I do want to take these tablets! I am thinking of buying a pill splitter to see if that helps.

Thank you for your feedback. We are sorry to hear that you find our tablets/capsules difficult to swallow. We have passed your comments on to our Product Development Team for their future consideration.

Seems a lot of tablets in one day

Thank you for your feedback.
