What is Glucosamine & Chondroitin Optiflex Liquid?

  • Gelatin Free
Optiflex Glucosamine & Chondroitin Liquid delivers the optimum combination of shellfish-free Optiflex Glucosamine HCl, premium 90% grade chondroitin sulphate and purified OptiMSM in a convenient, easy-swallow alternative to taking tablets which is naturally flavoured with blackcurrant for added palatability.

Glucosamine and Chondroitin are found naturally in the body and in particularly high concentration within joint cartilage. Chondroitin sulphate has historically been used in clinical trials alongside glucosamine. MSM is a naturally occurring organic sulphur compound that acts as a major building block of glycosaminoglycans, key structural components of joint cartilage.

Why Healthspan Optiflex Glucosamine & Chondroitin Liquid?

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.

Our unique formulation contains OptiMSM, the purest for of MSM available. Vitamin C has been included for the role it plays in normal collagen formation which is important for the normal function of cartilage.

Please note, delivered as 2 x 300ml bottles.

I have widespread arthritis in hands, feet, neck, shoulders, spine. Remembering how my dear mother looked when she was 80, I was determined that I would not let myself deteriorate as she did, which is why I have taken this for so long.

Thank you for sharing your experience with us.

Works for me... Works for me..

Thank you for your review.

This supply of 8 bottles all seem to be very much diluted. They are thin and the resultant drink is only a very pale pink instead of the dark red that we have been used to over the past few years.

We can confirm that the levels of 'non active' ingredients in the Glucosamine and Chondroitin Liquid vary from batch to batch because Chondroitin is very salty tasting in its natural form. When formulating this liquid, taste tests are carried out and the level of flavouring is altered to ensure it is palatable. These levels may be raised or diluted according to how salty the raw ingredient is. Diluting the flavouring will cause a lighter colour, however we can reassure you that this is normal and the level of 'active ingredients' will be exactly as advertised.

Good stuff! I will order again

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

Good stuff. The liquid works so much better than tablets.

25 February 2017

An easy way to take glucosamine & chrondroitin daily - 0ne dose and you are ready to go! No big tablets to swallow.

23 February 2017

Very convenient .rightly or wrong I place in large glass with my cranberry juice then water which helps my fluid per day

19 February 2017

I have been using this for years. I cannot say that life is better with or without it as I was not having issues when I started taking it and would have to stop to tell but it seemed a good preventative measure.

14 February 2017

I can't swallow large pills and this liquid is so easy and tastes very nice.

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


10 February 2017

I have only started to take this item, but find it pleasant to take and hopefully will, as I continue to take it, it will help me

Thank you for your review - 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 months of continuous usage.

09 February 2017

Again to help keep the joints moving. I think it helps

08 February 2017

Bottle could do with a smaller nozzle for pouring as it comes out quite quickly also would help to put in a measuring cup small one.

Thank you for your valued feedback, we take our customers comments very seriously.

01 February 2017

Owwww this stuff is absolutely gorgeous. The taste is lovely. I only wish I could drink more of it. And the best part is it's working. I'm allergic to shellfish so this is absolutely brilliant. Makes a nice change from taking pills.

31 January 2017

This needs a very large glass of water to dilute the taste which is quite horrible. Unfortunately I bought two bottles so will have to suffer the disgusting taste before I revert back to tablets.

30 January 2017

Like the liquid form, have found it effective for Osteoarthritis in my hands, in combination with ChondroMax tablets

We are delighted to hear that you are finding our product of benefit for your Osteoarthritis - Nicola

29 January 2017

I always come back to this product as I really feel the benefit on my creaky knees and hip. Tastes like neat blackcurrant! Happy to recommend.
