My Flex Joint Plus Review – Why It’s Not My Recommendation
It’s time for my Flex Joint Plus review – a supplement that didn’t really impressed me with anything:
- Regular ingredients
- Doses aren’t too high
- Super expensive (around $60 per month)
- Overestimated – promises to work in 10 days
Now – does this supplement work? I wouldn’t expect any miracle in 10 days – but at least does it work after 30?
I received it as a gift from friend – so I tested it out myself.
That’s why I can speak pretty much from experience.
Note: This review is based on my experience with this supplement – not on general info. I’m not trying to praise/ criticize this product or its company, I am simply telling my opinion about it.
So Let’s Get To The Review
Full Name: Flex Joint Plus (there’s no info about the producing company)
Quantity : 60 capsules
Best Actual Price: $59.59
Where To Get It From: Only available on the official website.
Designed For: Bone and joint support – according to the label.
But judging after its ingredients, I would say it works better for:
- inflammatory pain
- swollen joints
So based on what it contains, it doesn’t seem to help osteoarthritis or cartilage problems.
(I also doubt it can help inflammation – but more on that later on).
My Rating: 2 out of 10 – Scam alert
Worth Buying?: Definitely not. It’s surely not worth the money:
- extremely expensive per month
- contains regular ingredients in low doses
- it didn’t do anything for my pain
- doesn’t work in 10 days (as it claims)
So I definitely recommend you to stay away from it – especially when you can get something more effective for a much lower price.
What I Liked About It
- Honestly, I couldn’t find any positive thing
What I Didn’t Like About It
- Weak ingredients in low doses (most of them)
- No bioperine and calcium (for turmeric and vitamin D)
- Some of the ingredients don’t have any benefits for joint pain
- Extremely expensive ($60 per one month supply)
- You can’t order it online – only by phone
- Their website looks pretty unprofessional
- Didn’t relieve my pain at all (not even in 1 month)
#1 – Ingredients (7 out of 10)
To be honest – Flex Joint Plus’ ingredients aren’t too bad. It’s just some of their doses that are too low.
So let’s take a quick look at each ingredient.
1. NEM Eggshell Membrane (500 mg) – this is a brand ingredient:
- increases joint flexibility
- it’s not created by Flex Joint Plus’s brand
Basically – there are some other supplements that use it, including Joint Advantage.
The dose seems to be okay – that’s what most supplements contain.
2. Turmeric Root Powder (300 mg) – this ingredient is pretty disappointing. Here’s why:
- the dose is very low (1000-1500 mg on the average)
- there’s only the powder, no extract
- no bioperine – so this ingredient is absorbed less than 50%
3. Grape Seed Extract (100 mg) – this ingredient isn’t very common. But after doing a quick research, I found out 2 benefits:
- reduces the swelling after injury
Now, in arthritis – the swelling isn’t cause by injury. So the second benefit is kind of useless here.
Basically – this substance works mostly as an antioxidant.
But 100 mg isn’t a very high dose – so I doubt it could help a lot.
5. Sodium Borate (6 mg) – every heard of borax? Well, this is it.
- I checked all over the internet
- But I couldn’t find anything about its effect for joint pain.
So if you know more about it than I do, please let me know, But from what I know now, it’s pretty useless here.
6. Vitamin D (1000 UI) – this vitamin can help joint pain. But from what I know, it works better for bones.
I also know that:
- it increases the absorption of calcium
- this is what helps the bones actually
Well, I couldn’t find any calcium in these pills. So I’m not sure how effective vitamin D could be here.
#2 – My Background
1. How I Got It – As I said in the beginning, I didn’t buy this thing myself.
Considering its huge price – I doubt I would have bought it myself ever.
But as I received it from a friend, I said I would give it a try.
2. My Problems – Long story short, I had rheumatoid arthritis:
- my hands were the most affected and the most painful
- on an average, my pain was around a 6
- I had flareups (very painful days) every 3-4 days maybe
- I always woke up with stiff joints – especially hands
Now, there’s one thing causing the pain in RA – chronic inflammation.
Flex Joint Plus contains several anti-inflammatory, so it should help. At least on paper.
But I didn’t have anything to lose trying it out, so here are my results with it.
#3 – My Results (5 out of 10)
1. What It Promises – According to its label, this supplement claims to work in 10 days at most.
It says around 7-10 days, but let’s take the maximum period.
In my opinion:
- that’s a very big promise
- and it most likely won’t keep it
- that’s how it usually happens with supplements of this kind
But as I had to see for myself, I gave it a try.
2. How It Worked – To be honest, Flex Joint Plus didn’t do too much:
- It decreased my pain very little (to a 5.5 at most)
- My stiffness didn’t go away faster than before
- I still had flareups pretty often
- My hands and some of my fingers were as swollen as before
So I couldn’t really see a big change while taking these pills.
And yes – there was definitely no change or improvement after 10 days, as they claim.
Now, I don’t know if that was just my case or not – but I tend to think it wasn’t just me.
This supplement doesn’t seem like a professional one (and I will give you more proofs below).
And judging after my experience with it, it’s pretty useless when it comes to relieving pain.
The PROs – I Couldn’t Find Too Much
Unfortunately – I found very few positive things on Flex Joint Plus.
Note: I usually try to be unbiased in my reviews – to point out both the good and the negative side about every supplement I try.
But this time, I can’t really find any good things about this supplement.
It’s expensive, pretty weak and doesn’t contain anything special. Besides, it has some other problems that I will mention just in a few minutes.
So if you’re looking for some negative facts – I found enough.
Problem #1 – Low Doses
The first negative thing about Flex Joint Plus are its ingredients.
Now, I mentioned them briefly some lines above – but I don’t remember naming their biggest problems. So here’s what you should know:
- No major ingredient (I don’t think it’s the NEM Eggshell Membrane)
- Small doses of turmeric
- Most of the other ingredients also have low doses
- No bioperine
- I have no idea what the sodium borate does
- No calcium – vitamin D works better with it
So I don’t really like Flex Joint Plus’s formula.
Now, I don’t mean to offend this product or to make any fake claims – but to me, this formula doesn’t seem too established.
It’s like they put together these ingredients randomly – without caring about doses, interactions and absorption.
That’s how I personally see things. So I couldn’t possibly recommend a supplement with such a weak formula – especially if it costs so much.
Conclusion: For these money, the ingredients and their doses are pretty disappointing.
Problem #2 – You Can’t Order Online
That was by far the most shocking thing to me. So here’s the deal:
While browsing their website, I realized they didn’t have any purchase page.
They do promote the product but you couldn’t buy it anywhere – at first sight.
Because I solved the mystery afterwards:
- I found a bottom menu down the page
- I clicked on “my orders”
- They asked me to create an account
- Once I confirmed my email, I was hoping to find a purchase page
- But I didn’t. I was redirected to a general account page (like the one from below)
So to be honest, the company seems way too old-fashioned to me.
I mean, who orders on phone these days? It’s way easier to order online and pay by credit card.
Besides, it’s more complicated for them to send you the products without getting the money first.
- What if you refuse the order?
- They end up paying the extra shipping
You get my point? It’s really weird, if you ask me – and I don’t like that.
Conclusion: It’s the only joint supplement I saw recently that you can’t buy online.
But ironically – you can’t even find it in regular shops. So the only chance is to see it online and call my phone to make an order.
Problem #3 – Unprofessional Website
I’m not only talking about their website here – it’s also how they list their products and everything related to that.
So here’s the thing:
- They don’t mention the ingredients on their selling page.
- You can’t buy the product online – I talked about that above.
- You have to dig deep into every page to find the ingredients (they’re in the FAQs page).
- The writing they’re using is very small and hard to read.
- I couldn’t find any customer reviews.
Maybe it’s just my opinion, but I wouldn’t really buy from a website like this. Oh, well – I wouldn’t call to a website like this.
To me it looks a bit unprofessional, to be honest. You don’t have to agree, but it’s surely not an average website – in terms of looks.
Conclusion: Flex Joint Plus’ website looks very poorly made. My browser also labels it as “not secure”, which doesn’t sound too good.
Problem #4 – Too Overpriced
To be honest, Flex Joint Plus is one of the most expensive supplements I ever tried.
Here’s the thing:
- One bottle contains 60 pills
- You have to take 2 per day, which means it only lasts for 30 days
- It costs $60 without a few cents
Now, at this price – it should be made of gold. I’m joking, but it seems a price way too high for what it contains – and for how it works.
So even if it was the best supplement ever – I still couldn’t recommend it. Not at $60 per bottle.
It’s way, but way too much. So when it comes to price, it really seems like a big scam.
As I said, I don’t mean to offend this product or its company – but it costs way too much. So I can’t possible advise you to buy it.
Conclusion: Flex Joint Plus costs way too much for its real value, in my opinion.
Problem #5 – Weak Effect
Even though it costs a fortune (literally), Flex Joint Plus is terrible in terms of how it works.
Here’s what I mean:
- It didn’t relieve my pain almost at all
- My joint flexibility didn’t improve in 10 days (not even in 1 month)
- I still woke up with stiff joints
- My hands were pretty much as swollen as before
Do I call that an improvement? Not at all.
So from my point of view, Flex Joint Plus is totally useless.
Now – if it was just another supplement, I wouldn’t mind it.
Many others are pretty weak and they didn’t help me much. But at least they were more than 50% cheaper.
But considering how expensive it is, I have to advise you to stay away from it. It’s just not worth it at all.
Conclusion: In my case, Flex Joint Plus was totally useless – there’s no positive thing I can say about it.
My Final Verdict – Is It Worth Buying?
Short answer: Definitely not. For me it’s a big NO – so I couldn’t possibly recommend it to any single person.
Let me sum up why I’m so “against” this supplement:
- Pretty weak ingredients overall
- Extremely expensive
- Didn’t do almost anything for my pain
- I couldn’t find any real reviews about it
- Its website doesn’t seem too trustworthy
But the biggest problem it has is by far the price.
I mean, who would possibly pay $60 per one month supply? I can’t really tell.
For a product that costs so much, its ingredients look almost like a joke – I say that without offending the producers.
Would I buy it?: No for sure. And I actually advise you not to buy it as well.
Just think about it – you can get a much better supplement for less money.
In fact, my #1 favorite product costs almost $40 less – and it contains some much better ingredients.
Therefore, I can’t possible recommend Flex Joint Plus. In my opinion, it’s far from a good supplement – I see it rather as a scam, to be honest.
