An effective dietary supplement used to treat osteoarthritis in the knees is called osteobiflex. The said supplement contains glucosamine and chondroitin, which are substances that have long been used to treat arthritis in the knees by improving its joint comfort, joint flexibility and joint mobility.
Osteobiflex has four strengths which are as follows: regular strength, the double strength, plus MSM, triple strength and advanced.
The regular strength osteobiflex consists of naturally sourced glucosamine and chondroitin. The daily recommended dose is six caplets. Each caplet may be taken at the same time or spread throughout the day. In every six caplet, the regular strength contains 1,500 milligrams glucosamine and 1,200 milligrams chondroitin.
On the other hand, double strength osteobiflex requires a person to take three caplets daily. The said caplets may be take one at a time throughout the day. Double strength gives people the same daily dose of glucosamine and chondroitin contained in six regular strength caplets. However, you get the same dosage in just three caplets.
Meanwhile, osteobiflex MSM requires one to take four caplets each day. These caplets may be taken together all at once, or may be spread throughout the day. For each four caplets, the plus MSM variety contains 1,500 milligrams of glucosamine, 1,200 milligrams of chondroitin and 1,000 milligrams of MSM.
Furthermore, triple strength osteobioflex requires its users to take only two caplets day to day. Like other varieties, this variety may also be taken all together or can be spread throughout the day. Triple strength gives a person the same daily dosage of glucosamine and chondroitin contained by six caplets of the regular strength varieties in just two caplets.
The advance formula variety of osteobiflex contains glucosamine, chondroitin, MSM, manganese and vitamin C, plus something that is called a “joint shield.” A joint shield’s key ingredient is a potent extract of Boswellia serrata called five-loxin. This is ten times more concentrated version compared to ordinary Bosweilla extracts.
Osteobiflex is the only brand that features different ingredients combined with a joint shield and the ingredient called five-loxin which is still pending patent. According to its manufacturer, joint shield with five-loxin works to guard joints against the action of enzymes which ultimately causes pain to the said part of the body. These claims however, were not confirmed the the US Food and Drug Administration, which does not actually regulate dietary supplements.
In addition, unlike many other brands osteobiflex utilize the hydrochloride form of glucosamine. According to clinical tests however, many types of glucosamine differ in their abilities to help reduce arthritis symptoms.
