  • What Is It?


    Disc-Flex supports healthy composition, strength, comfort
    and flexibility of intervertebral cartilage. The formula
    is designed to specifically target proteoglycans,
    age-related advanced glycation endproduct activity, tissue
    calcium metabolism, immune response and the natural
    inflammatory processes to promote spinal disc health.*


    Uses For Disc-Flex


    Intervertebral Cartilage: This formula addresses the
    unique nutritional needs of intervertebral cartilage (IVC).
    IVC is avascular, wears differently, and is affected by
    different nutritional factors compared to articular
    cartilage. The basics of healthy disc composition involve
    glucosamine, chondroitin and collagen. Studies indicate
    that glucosamine and chondroitin support spinal disc
    integrity and have the potential to support the strength of
    the disc under compressive loads. In postmenopausal
    women, the healthy composition of the lumbar spine is
    directly related to type II collagen content. The advanced
    nature of this product involves its ability to maintain
    healthy advanced glycation end product activity, healthy
    immune mediator activity, a healthy inflammatory
    response and healthy calcium metabolism. Advanced
    glycation end products reduce the ability of the
    intervertebral disc to produce proteoglycans, which
    comprise healthy disc matrix. The age-related increase
    in advanced glycation end products also contributes to
    stiffening of the spine. l-Carnosine, grape seed extract
    and alpha lipoic acid help to maintain healthy advanced
    glycation end product metabolism and provide
    antioxidant protection. Cartilage end plate calcification
    also affects disc function and longevity. Vitamin K2 as
    menaquinone-7 also maintains a healthy balance of
    calcium uptake into extra-skeletal tissues. Devil's claw
    supports day-to-day spinal comfort and flexibility as
    demonstrated by German studies. Vitamin D is a synergist
    with vitamin K2 to help maintain healthy cartilage end
    plate calcium metabolism.*


    What Is The Source?


    Vitamin D3 is derived from lanolin. Vitamin K2
    (menaquinone-7) is derived from natto (soy) and contains
    casein (dairy). Hydrolyzed type II collagen complex is
    derived from chicken sternal cartilage and provides 60%
    hydrolyzed type II collagen, 20% chondroitin sulfate and
    10% hyaluronic acid. Glucosamine HCl is derived from crab
    and shrimp. l-Carnosine (beta-alanyl-l-histidine) and alpha
    lipoic acid are synthetic. Devil's claw extract is derived
    from Harpagophytum procumbens root and standardized
    to contain 5% harpagosidees. Boswellia serrata extract is
    derived from gum resin and standardized to contain 70%
    boswellic acids. Grape seed extract is derived from Vitis
    vinifera and standardized to contain 92% polyphenols.
    Ascorbyl palmitate is derived from corn dextrose
    fermentation and palm oil.
