Salt Lake City, UT (PRWEB) July 10, 2013
TFX Health, LLC has teamed up with GNC to introduce TFX Flex™, a popular new joint health supplement that many industry insiders expect to revolutionize the joint health industry. In addition to several important vitamins and joint health nutrients, TFX Flex™ contains a breakthrough new dietary ingredient known as UC-II® that has been proven in human clinical studies to be 2X more effective than Glucosamine & Chondroitin for joint pain relief.
According to a TFX Health company spokesman, “GNC is the most important retail distribution channel for health and wellness products in general, and cutting edge new science in particular. The cooperation between the two companies was essential to make TFX Flex™ readily available for those seeking new and improved solutions to joint health problems.”
Both companies also share the view that joints can only be as healthy as the bones and muscles to which they are attached. With the introduction of TFX Flex™ there is finally a product on the market that combines clinically proven ingredients for muscle, bone, and joint support providing a safe and effective solutions for the entire musculoskeletal system. Since its launch earlier this year, TFX Flex™ has become GNC’s best selling triple threat product for bone, joint, and muscle health.
The launch of TFX Flex™ quickly captured the attention of the joint health industry after the industry’s two staple ingredients, glucosamine & chondroitin, came under fire in a 2010 study published in the British Medical Journal. The study concluded that, “Glucosamine and Chondroitin, either taken together or separately, have not shown a clinically significant improvement in joint pain relief for patients troubled with knee or hip osteoarthritis [BMJ 2010; 341:c4675].
Worldwide annual sales of glucosamine & chondroitin have been estimated at more than $2 billion, with nearly half of that coming from the United States. A spokesman for TFX Health explained, “The science behind joint health is changing and consumers are actively looking for better alternatives to glucosamine & chondroitin. TFX Flex™ has been shown in human clinical studies to be 2X more effective than glucosamine & chondroitin and it is the only product on the market that takes an overall approach to bone, muscle, and joint health.
TFX Flex™ contains a breakthrough new dietary ingredient known as UC-II® Undenatured Type II Collagen that has been proven in human clinical studies to be 2X more effective than Glucosamine & Chondroitin for joint pain relief. UC-II® was developed by a team of scientists with more than 25 years of experience in the development of patented, clinically substantiated dietary ingredients. The new ingredient holds 7 international and U.S. patents and is supported by 9 human clinical studies, including research at Harvard Medical School.
In a randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled human clinical study, it was found that only 40 mg of UC-II® was more than two times as effective as 1,500 mg of glucosamine and 1,200 mg of chondroitin in supporting joint health, comfort and flexibility. It outperformed the glucosamine & chondroitin combination in three different joint pain relief assessment tools: WOMAC, VAS and the Lequesne Functional Index. UC-II® significantly decreased joint pain during daily activities, including walking on a flat surface, performing heavy domestic duties, ascending stairs and while resting in bed. UC-II® was also shown to be safe and well tolerated with no known side effects [Crowley DC, Lau FC, Sharma P, et al. Int J Med Sci. 2009; 6:312-321].
