Flexatril is a Joint Support Product manufactured by XTend. It is designed to improve and maintain the health of cartilage, tendons and joints in the body.
IntroductionI'm a competing powerlifter, and I recently started running. I haven't had any serious joint issues, but sometimes I get nagging pains in my shoulders and knees. I've tried a myriad of joint support products over the years and when I saw Flexatril on sale, I decided to give it a try.
Ingredient ProfileFlexatril is a joint support product from Scivation. It came to the market in February of 2016. They use a proprietary blend, which I'm typically not a fan of as they're usually just a way of hiding how weak a formula is, but Scivation has an innovative formula full of new ingredients, and I understand that they didn't want to be ripped off.
We have here a blend of:
MicroLactin: a hyperimmune form of milk which can help with osteoarthritis and possibly help with the immune system.
Ayuflex: a compound extracted from Terminalia chebula fruit which supports healthy joints and endothelial function.
Sensoril: a patented form of Ashwagandha that is used promote cardiovascular function, encourage more restful sleep, and increase resistance to fatigue
Lactase: enzymes that breakdown lactose. I assume this is for the microlactin.
Flexatril also has 5 cals, 2g of protein and 44mg calcium.
Taste/Mixability/DosingThere is no taste or mixability. Flexatril is a pill product. One dose is 3 tablets. They're of medium size, fairly easy to swallow, and they don't have an aftertaste or anything.
EffectivenessFlexatril was fairly effective for me. I used it for a month straight, and it did help with my right knee. I'm not sure how I tweaked it, but my right knee was sensitive to certain movements: leg press, leg extensions, weighted sprints. After using Flexatril for a couple of weeks, I noticed that my knee pain had gone away entirely.
I say fairly effective because I also had soreness and my left shoulder, and although it lessened over the month, it is still there. I don't think that i have an actual injury (I couldn't expect Flexatril to solve that), and in the past, I've seen very quick results with cissus, so for me, I would have to say that cissus was more effective for shoulder pain than Flexatril.
