Glyco-Flex consists of a number of active ingredients, whose functions are as follows:
DMG: DiMethylGlycine is a strong antioxidant. So DMG will help to capture free radicals that originate in the inflammatory processes in the joints. Furthermore, it supports the bloodstream to the joint, allowing the nutrients to better reach the joint.
Green-lipped mussel: Green-lipped mussel contains a large number of ingredients that have a beneficial effect on the joint. It is rich in amino acids, minerals, Omega fatty acids, glucosamine (see below) and chondroitin. Green-lipped mussel provides building blocks for the glycosaminoglycans (GAGs) in the cartilage, regulates the inflammatory processes, provides building blocks and energy for the muscles.
Glucosamine: This substance is very necessary for the production of the glycosaminoglycans (GAGs) and the synovia (joint lubricant). Glucosamine has very good results in patients with arthritis can be used in recovery after joint operations.
MSM: MethylSulfonylMethane provides sulfur for the collagen production and repair. It has an analgesic and anti-inflammatory function.
Manganese: The manganese in Glyco-Flex is bound to an amino acid, making it well absorbed by the body. Manganese is required for the enzyme glycosyltransferase, which is involved in the production of collagen, GAGs and proteoglycans.
Glyco-Flex also contains a number of very important antioxidants, namely glutathione, grape seed extract (so-called OPCs), selenium and vitamin E. All these substances reduce harmful oxidative reactions and inhibit enzymes that stimulate inflammatory processes.
