What is Optiflex Glucosamine & Chondroitin?

  • Gelatin Free
Glucosamine and Chondroitin occur naturally in the body and in particularly high concentration within joint cartilage. Chondroitin sulphate has historically been used in clinical trials alongside glucosamine. Both components work in perfect synergy, and it is for this reason that they are often combined in the same tablet formulation.

Why Healthspan Glucosamine & Chondroitin?

Our patented Optiflex Glucosamine HCl marks a major break-through in glucosamine supplementation - produced from a sustainable corn base via a special fermentation process, it provides 40% more glucosamine per gram compared to standard glucosamine sulphate 2KCl. Furthermore, Optiflex is 100% free from shellfish and associated allergens, and is suitable for vegetarian and vegans.

The chondroitin sulphate used in this formulation and in all Healthspan products is the premium 90% grade. Many other companies use the lower strength and far cheaper 20% grade, which provides less chondroitin per gram.

What is in each tablet?

Each tablet contains 500mg of pure Optiflex Glucosamine HCl and 100mg Chondroitin Sulphate 90%. For best results our experts recommend taking three tablets daily during mealtimes.
