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
The Ingredients – 2 Problems I Found
There are basically 2 weird things I noticed from the start:
- No photo of the ingredients label
- 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)
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:
- It doesn’t mention the doses for each substance anywhere
- There’s no photo of the ingredients label
- They state certain doses for glucosamine and chondroitin – but they are different on the real supplement
- 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.
