Is FlexoPlex A Scam? (Personal Review)

Is FlexoPlex A Scam? (Personal Review)

It’s time for my FlexoPlex review – which I tried for mostly one reason: lots of joint pain websites recommend it.

But the thing is – I found very few reviews about it, which was pretty weird:

  • Most were on the websites promoting this product
  • And they were general, not based on personal experience

So that made me think that FlexoPlex might be a fake product. But as I had no proof, I had to try it myself.

So is FlexoPlex a scam or not? I tried to make this review as honest as possible.

Note: This review is based on my personal experience with FlexoPlex. I’m not trying to praise/criticize the product or its company, I am simply telling how it worked for me.


So Let’s Get To The Review

Full Name: FlexoPlex by PharmaxaLabs (I never heard of it)

Forms: Only tablets

Best Actual Price: $39.95 per bottle

Where I Bought It From: Ebay (I was lucky to find a person selling it for about $25), but I would normally recommend the official website

Designed For: Joint and bone support in general – according to the label:

  • pain and inflammation
  • unhealthy joints

But judging after its ingredients – I think it works better for osteoarthritis and cartilage damage. 

Its ingredients aren’t strong enough to decrease inflammatory pain, in my opinion. So I wouldn’t recommend it for rheumatoid or psoriatic arthritis.

My Rating: 7.50 out of 10 – It’s a decent supplement

Worth Buying?: For minor cartilage problems, yes – mostly because of its good price.

But I wouldn’t recommend it for inflammatory pain or arthritis – at least not as a top choice:

  • pretty low doses
  • producing company is pretty unknown

However, it’s surely not a scam. It’s a good product in many situations, but it’s not among my top recommendations.


What I Liked About It

  • Only 2 pills per day
  • One bottle is enough for 2 months
  • Pretty affordable – considering the quantity per bottle
  • They have a 60 days money back guarantee (I can’t tell how real it is)
  • You also get a free E-book if you make any purchase
  • It does work, so it’s not a scam


What I Didn’t Like About It

  • No picture of the ingredient label on their website
  • They mention certain doses for glucosamine and chondroitin – but in reality, they are different (lower)
  • Most ingredients are put together as Proprietary Blend – so you can’t tell the dose for each
  • Overall, the doses are very low
  • There’s very little info about their company (it only has 1 other product)
  • It didn’t decrease my inflammation at all





FlexoPlex – A Quick Overview

Before I get to the real review, here are the main things that sum up my opinion on FlexoPlex:

  • it’s one of the 2 products of PharmaxaLabs (I didn’t find any others)
  • good ingredients but mostly low doses
  • just like most supplements, it’s not FDA approved

The biggest problem I had was with its ingredients (but I will move on to that immediately).

So overall, FlexoPlex is a decent supplement – not the best one ever (as many websites claim), but definitely not a scam either. At least in my opinion.

But now, let’s get to my personal review – starting with how I see the ingredients.



The Ingredients – 2 Problems I Found

There are basically 2 weird things I noticed from the start:

  1. No photo of the ingredients label
  2. The description claims to have some higher doses than in reality

So let’s take them by turn.

Problem #1 – As you probably know, most supplements mention 2 exact things:

  • what substances they contain
  • how much they contain

Now – FlexoPlex does describe the ingredients – but it doesn’t say much about the doses. And you can’t find any photo of the ingredient label – which 99% supplements offer. It’s only the front label all over their website.

This usually tells me that they’re trying to hide their ingredients – otherwise why wouldn’t they show them?

Problem #2 – Here’s the next weird thing I found.

As I said before – they mention the doses of glucosamine and chondroitin in their description. According to that, there are:

  • 1500 mg glucosamine 
  • 1200 mg chondroitin

Now – these doses are really great. But here comes the thing – the real label shows lower doses of both:

  • 750 mg glucosamine
  • 600 mg chondroitin

These doses aren’t that impressive anymore – especially the glucosamine. So to me, this seems like a little lie – meant to impress you and convince you to buy this supplement. 

But I want to judge fairly – so let me show you all the ingredients from FlexoPlex (because there are some others).



Let’s Analyze The Ingredients

In terms of what it contains – I really liked FlexoPlex. In terms of doses – not really.

1. Glucosamine Sulfate (750 mg) – it’s the best ingredient for osteoarthritis:

  • it rebuilds damaged cartilages
  • FlexoPlex uses the sulfate form, which is stronger (unlike most glucosamine supplements)
  • the dose is too little, in my opinion (750 mg vs 1000-1500 mg on most products)

2. Chondroitin Sulfate (600 mg) – this substance does the same as glucosamine, but it increases its power.

But in this case, the dose is pretty good – as it doesn’t have to be as high as glucosamine.

3. Proprietary Blend (697 mg) – that’s an ingredient I don’t like:

  • it contains lots of quality substances 
  • but the exact dose of each isn’t mentioned (big downside)

So there are basically substances like MSM, Boswellia, Cat’s Claw, Bromelain, etc – which are all really valuable remedies for joint pain.

But considering there’s only 697 mg of this blend – the dose of each is probably pretty low.

So I doubt they’re going to help a lot. 

Conclusion: In my opinion, FlexoPlex contains some really good ingredients – but in really low doses. So it’s not the kind of supplement I would recommend, from this point of view. 



My Experience With FlexoPlex

As I said – I mainly bought this product because it was the top recommendation on several websites.

I had osteoarthritis in both of my knees:

  • the pain wasn’t so bad (around a 3-4 out of 10)
  • my knees were very stiff and inflexible
  • I had a hard time moving around

Now, to be honest – FlexoPlex worked better than I had expected.

I only bought one bottle, but I could see some improvement after about 2 weeks:

  • my knee pain decreased considerably (to about a 1)
  • my knees also seemed a bit more flexible 

Don’t imagine I felt perfect – there was still some pain and I still couldn’t run or exercise. But I could definitely see an improvement. 

In terms of effect, FlexoPlex wasn’t the best supplement I tried – it helped me, but some helped me more.

However, I expected very little from it – considering it had pretty low doses. So I can honestly say that it surprised me, in the positive way.

Conclusion: FlexoPlex is definitely not a scam – it works.

However, I got some better results from other products – which is why FlexoPlex isn’t my top recommendation. But as an osteoarthritis product, it’s more than decent.

Now – let me show you briefly the best and the worst things about this supplement.




PRO #1 – Price/Quantity Ratio

I know that at first sight, FlexoPlex doesn’t seem like a cheap product – $40 per bottle is a lot actually. 

But there’s something I didn’t mention:

  • one bottle is enough for 60 days
  • you need to take 2 pills per day

Honestly, $40 for a 2 months supply doesn’t seem so expensive. Especially for a glucosamine supplements – which tend to cost over $30.

Now, as I said – FlexoPlex kind of disappointed me when it comes to doses. So it’s not my top recommended product – there are others that work much better.

But I have to admit that for the price, it’s a pretty good deal. So if you have some minor cartilage problems, you could definitely consider it.



PRO #2 – Free E-book

That’s something really interesting:

  • you get a free download document if you buy any bottle of FlexoPlex

The E-book is called “Reversed: Powerful Secrets To Treating Joint Pain Naturally”.

Now, I didn’t buy FlexoPlex from the official website, so I can’t tell anything about the book.

Honestly, I’m pretty sure it’s kind of useless – it probably contains general tips and ways to cope with the pain better. Just like most joint pain books.

But I don’t know any supplement that offers you this kind of gift for free. So I really appreciate FlexoPlex from this point of view – no matter what’s inside that book.



PRO #3 – Money Back Guarantee

I can’t speak from experience here either. 

But according to the official website, FlexoPlex offers a 60 days money back guarantee.

Now – I can’t tell myself if this is true or not. But here’s what I think:

  • if the guarantee was fake, there would be lots of complaints
  • also, many people would tell their negative experience with the company

But if you check on Google – you can’t find a lot about FlexoPlex. And since there aren’t hundreds of negative reviews – I believe their money back guarantee is real.

You will probably have to pay only the shipping – which isn’t a lot anyway.



CON #1 – No Exact Doses

This is by far the biggest problem of FlexoPlex:

  1. It doesn’t mention the doses for each substance anywhere
  2. There’s no photo of the ingredients label
  3. They state certain doses for glucosamine and chondroitin – but they are different on the real supplement
  4. The other ingredients are put together in a proprietary blend (so you can’t see the dose for each)

So to me – FlexoPlex looks very questionable. It looks like the company is trying to hide the real doses.

It’s not the first supplement that does that – but the other ones weren’t as popular, so it didn’t matter so much.

But either way, I consider this as a real problem – because you should know for sure what exactly you’re buying and how much.



CON #2 – Little Info On The Company

As I said in the beginning – FlexoPlex is one of the 2 products I could find from PharmaxaLabs.

The other one is Somulin, a sleep formula with a website that looks identical with FlexoPlex’s. 

So this doesn’t seem encouraging – I would probably think twice before buying from a company with only 2 products.

But there’s something else I want to point out:

  • the company has no website of its own
  • there’s no Linkedin profile or any official page
  • I found very little official info about it

So this kind of companies aren’t always real – they basically have a few products they claim to be the best, but that’s it.

Now – I don’t know if PharmaxaLabs is real or not and I don’t want to make any accusations (since I can’t prove anything).

But I just don’t like the fact that there’s no info about this brand – so I’m not sure I would buy from it.



CON #3 – A Bit Overrated (My Opinion)

To be honest, that’s my personal opinion about FlexoPlex. 

As I said, I bought it mostly because of seeing it recommended on most joint pain websites. 

And in reality – it did work. But it wasn’t the best product ever – in fact, I know many others that were more effective. The thing is:

  • FlexoPlex helped my OA pain
  • But it didn’t reduce my inflammation
  • So it wasn’t effective for the pain caused by RA

The label claims to help both inflammation and joint pain – and in my case, it wasn’t really so.

But as I said – it didn’t come as a surprise, considering most of its ingredients have low doses.

Therefore, to me – FlexoPlex seems a bit too overrated for what it does. So it’s not the best supplement ever, as many websites claim – at least that’s how I see things.




My Verdict – Is FlexoPlex A Scam?

Short answer: No, it’s a decent supplement actually.


But I wouldn’t recommend it as a first choice product – in my opinion, there are some others that work much better. 

FlexoPlex has a few things that kind of disappointed me – and it’s mostly about its ingredients:

  • you can’t find the doses on their website
  • most of the ingredients are put together in a Proprietary Blend
  • so you can’t see the dose for each

For sure, there are enough good things about it. That’s why I consider it an over average product.

If you have some minor osteoarthritis or cartilage problems, it’s not a bad choice at all – since it’s affordable for the quantity.

But for a general OA, cartilage problems or inflammation – I wouldn’t really recommend it. But it’s up to you what you decide to pick.

    I personally wouldn’t buy a consumable product from eBay with limited information and I must admit I think your very brave in doing so.

    I ordered Flexoplex from the company itself but wasn’t very impressed with it, so I requested the refund based on their guarantee. They refunded me within a week, without asking lots of stupid questions as to why I did not like it and so on. So I must admit that they’re fair.

    But the pills weren’t something special. I have mild osteoarthritis in my feet and I used to take a product called Joint Vibrance, which I don’t know if you are familiar with. Flexoplex seemed cheaper but it turned out to be not as helpful as the other product. 

    I’ve seen you say it’s all right for mild OA but I have to disagree with that, it didn’t help my pain as well as Joint Vibrance. I might consider your recommended supplement, since it looks cheaper overall.

  2. Heather says:

    Hey Darren, thanks for letting me know your opinion.

    I buy lots of supplements from Ebay, because most have way lower prices (up to half) and they are all new and sealed (you can see that before you make the actual order). 

    There are lots of companies selling there, so it’s basically just like buying from Amazon – only that the prices are way lower.

    So if you get used to it, Ebay is a much cheaper shop overall.

    Regarding your experience with FlexoPlex, it’s great to hear you got a refund easily. This shows that the company is really honest and they’re not scammers. 

    I couldn’t tell much about the company, so thanks a lot for pointing this out.

    I am familiar with Joint Vibrance, because I’ve tried it at one point too. It does work, but there are several things I didn’t like about it:

    – the powder form is uncomfortable to prepare and it takes a lot of time

    – if you choose the pills, you need to take around 12 per day, which is huge

    – it’s expensive for a joint supplement

    And one more thing – it contains the weaker form of glucosamine (theHCl). That kind of disappointed me.

    So yeah, I think ProJoint Plus could help you a lot more – especially if you have a mild form of OA. 

    You probably have a lot of cartilage left, so the pills will keep it healthy and prevent any future damage. So it’s should work faster for you compared to other people (in terms of decreasing your pain). 

    If you decide to buy it, please let me know how it works in your case.

  3. Marge says:

    Hi, is this good for rheumatoid arthritis too? I’m taking the pills for 2 weeks now and I can’t tell much of a difference. I can see you recommend it for osteoarthritis only, but I have this rheumatoid arthritis and they say it works for any joint problem. It’s been long enough now but not much changed in my joint pain…

  4. Heather says:

    Hi Marge, I don’t really think it’s good for rheumatoid arthritis too.

    Here’s the thing:

    – RA is an auto-immune condition and it causes inflammation in your joints. That’s where the pain comes from.

    – On the other hand, OA is caused by cartilage damage. This usually appears because of aging or due to an accident

    So these are both form of arthritis, but their causes are totally different.

    That’s why the same treatment isn’t going to work the same for both:

    – For RA, anti-inflammatory medication is the best. It decreases inflammation so the pain disappears.

    So for RA, turmeric works best – it’s the strongest natural anti-inflammatory, and it starts working within days.

    – For OA, glucosamine and chondroitin work best because they rebuild the damaged cartilages.

    As you can see, FlexoPlex is based on glucosamine and chondoritin. These 2 ingredients aren’t extremely useful in RA, because it’s not caused by cartilage problems.

    Glucosamine does have some anti-inflammatory proprieties too – but they’re minor, compared to others. So it’s not going to do much for RA (other than protecting your joints from additional damage).

    I know that FlexoPlex claims to work for any joint problem – and most supplements claim that. But it’s not true, if you take a closer look.

    So that’s why FlexoPlex doesn’t help you – you need something with turmeric instead. This supplement is my #1 recommendation because it’s cheaper and it contains some great stuff. 

    So I’m pretty sure you’re going to feel a difference in your pain in less than 1 week. Hope this helps and sorry I can’t give you some good news about FlexoPlex.

  5. KP says:

    Thanks for reviewing Flexoplex. I was studying this product for a while now but I couldn’t find any personal opinions other than those on Amazon (which weren’t extremely positive, by the way). I wanted to see a review like yours, so it’s much appreciated. 

    So now that I’ve seen some `secrets` of Flexoplex, it might not be a scam, but they don’t seem to be trying very hard to give us a warm, happy feeling either. Not disclosing ingredients and inconsistent data about those they do list are red flags for me. I thought it was just me not being able to find them anywhere on their page, but your review made me realize it’s not. 

    If they can’t have good quality control in their data, one wonders about their quality control in their purchasing or manufacturing processes.

    Thanks again for giving out an honest opinion on Flexoplex, I much appreciate it!

  6. Heather says:

    Hi there, thanks for your words. It’s great to hear you found what you were looking for in my review. I always try to make my articles personal, so it’s great to hear it helps. 

    I do agree with you about Flexoplex. But the thing that bothers me most is that they mention some doses on their website, and the label shows some lower quantities. I don’t know if you noticed that, but I mentioned it. That really annoyed me, because I didn’t know what to think.

    But sure, any product that doesn’t give out the whole list of its compounds (including inactive ingredients) tries to hide something – in my opinion. 

    I reviewed enough supplements that did this and all of them had a lot of things that didn’t seem right (this is just one example of product).

    Thanks for letting me know your opinion and hopefully this review helps you take the right decision.

  7. Joshua Marianovic says:

    Hi Heather, I too have seen Flexoplex recommended on many websites so I wanted to investigate before I make the actual purchase.

    To my surprise, I couldn’t find many opinions about it (just general reviews like you call them).

    After reading this review I have a better view on Flexoplex. My biggest worry is about the company, because I researched it too and couldn’t find too much data. Maybe for you it’s not such an important thing, but I always buy products from brands that are well-established, which is why I’m not very confident about Flexoplex.

    I also don’t like the ingredients part and the fact they don’t say it out loud and clearly the quantities (especially that mix with many ingredients).

    Your review still left me thinking, I’m not sure if Flexoplex is worth my money, it’s just not the type of product I would normally buy. 

    I checked your other recommendation (ProJoint Plus) and it looks slightly better – the quantities are clearly written out and the company has many recommendations. Honestly, this product seems to be more on my taste but it’s a bit more expensive. I might buy one bottle, see what it does and decide. 

    Other than this, do you have some other glucosamine recommendations? Thanks..

  8. Heather says:

    Hello Joshua.

    I totally understand what you’re saying – no one would trust a company that you can’t find anything about. That’s something serious, so I understand your lack of trust. 

    I personally would recommend you a lot more ProJoint Plus than FlexoPlex. I know it’s more expensive, but it has way better ingredients and the company behind seems a bit more trustworthy (you’ve seen it too).

    Yeah, buying just one bottle could be better for you. I’m pretty sure it’s going to help you, but everyone is different – so it’s better to see for yourself before you invest more money in it.

    So if I were you, I would try ProJoint Plus instead.

    And regarding your question – here’s a list of the best 7 glucosamine supplements I tried. FlexoPlex is also on it, but it’s not among my very favorites.

    Anyway, there are 7 products to choose from – so you will surely find the right thing for you.

    Hope this helps.

  9. Helen Green says:

    Hello Heather, I love your reviews and honesty.I just wanted to mention that the glucosamine/chondroitin doses are for two tablets. I think the recommended dose is 4 tablets per day. Two before breakfast and two an hour before bed. The four tablets would total the advertised dose of 1500 glucosamine/1200 chondroitin. of course taking 4 tablets a day dings into the value of this product. Thanks for your research and posts.

  10. Heather Pharm.D. says:

    Hi Helen, you’re right. I just checked and you need to take 4 pills per day, not 2. Thanks a lot for clarifying it, I will make sure to correct my Flexoplex review!

  11. Kevin says:

    Your argument about doses makes no sense. The dose is for two pills. That would mean the label is 100% correct. I think you should update this article to reflect the truth and give them a better score since that was one of your big negatives.

  12. Heather Pharm.D. says:

    Hi Kevin, you’re right, that was my mistake that I didn’t notice when I wrote the review. I will have it updated when I get some free time!

  13. Vait E. Foder says:

    You stated that the product actually has 750 mg glucosamine and 600 mg chondroitin. But if you take two pills the total is 1500 glucosamine and 1200 chondroitin.

  14. Heather Pharm.D. says:

    Hello Vait, that’s true, my bad. Most supplements give out the dosage per serving, which I why I thought that’s the case in FlexpPlex as well. I will have to update that part of my review, thanks for your notification.
