What is FlexNow?

FlexNow is a softgel-based joint supplement from BSP Pharma. Its formulation revolves around a high-triterpene extract of shea nuts.

Other Features

FlexNow’s ingredients are not typically seen. It uses an extract of shea nuts which are high in fatty acids like palmitic, stearic, oleic, linoleic, and arachidic acids. The only scientific study on Butyrospermum parkii nut extract we found was this one. Another recent study explored the anti-inflammatory effects of  “triterpene cinnamates and acetates from shea fat” and found that “shea nuts and shea fat (shea butter) constitute a significant source of anti-inflammatory and anti-tumor promoting compounds.”

Artificial Dyes or Coloring

We found no artificial dyes or coloring in FlexNow.

    I am a 70 yr old man who takes daily Omega3 Fish Oil 1200mg per day along with Move Free Advanced triple strength dietary supplement. Would you suggest any other supplements that would be more effective. I walk most every day and walk and play golf several times a week; do stretches and lift light weights three times a week. I am experiencing more joint pain lately with my exercises and walking. Thanks Patrick Loughran
