My Patriot Flex Review (For Pain) – Scam Or Legit?

My Patriot Flex Review (For Pain) - Scam Or Legit?

It’s time for my Patriot Flex Review (the pain reliever product, not anything else). 

I know lots of people who complained about this product – which is why I decided to check it out.

So is Patriot Flex a scam – or does it relieve the pain for real? To be honest, it doesn’t look too well at first sight:

  • pretty unprofessional website
  • very little info on the ingredients
  • their reviews seem fake

For this reason – I decided it to check it out myself and see what it can do. So here’s what I discovered about Patriot Flex just below.

Note: This review is based on my experience with Patriot Flex – so it’s doesn’t have general info about what it is, how it works, etc. . 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: Patriot Flex by Patriot Health Alliance

Forms: Only roll-on available

Best Actual Price: $33 (plus about $9 shipping)

Where You Can Find It: On the official website only 

Designed For: Joint pain in general – whether it’s caused by:

  • inflammation
  • cartilage problems

At least that’s what the label claims. Because in my opinion, it’s not really so (I will tell you more below).

My Rating: 1 out of 10 – I couldn’t possibly rate it higher

Worth Buying?: No way. It’s far from a miracles treatment, as they claim. In fact, it makes big promises but it’s really weak in reality:

  • basic ingredients
  • the formula isn’t any special
  • extremely expensive for what it does
  • hides lots of necessary info (substances, doses, contact info)

So I couldn’t possible recommend this product – in my opinion, it’s a big scam. If you want something that really treats your pain, this is what you should try.

 

What I Liked About It

  • Easy to apply (it’s a roll-on)
  • They have a money back guarantee – at least on paper

 

What I Didn’t Like About It

  • Very unprofessional website (lots of info missing)
  • You can’t tell what ingredients it contains – they don’t mention the ingredients anywhere
  • The doses are also hidden everywhere
  • Different names for some ingredients – just to make them look better (Leopard’s Bane for Arnica, Karpuram for Camphor)
  • Some ingredients have nothing to do with relieving pain (Suku Marchu)
  • No links to clinical trials or studies
  • A lot of fake claims (I will explain below)
  • The reviews from their website aren’t authentic
  • It only masks the pain, it doesn’t treat the cause
  • Very expensive for what it contains (and for the dose) – $39 for 2 oz

 

 

 

Patriot Flex – A Quick Overview


To be honest, this product looks like the typical scam – mostly because of 1 thing:

  • their claims about the formula

In my opinion – their story is way too hard to believe.

Here’s what the official website claims:

  • it’s a secret recipe from Swedish healers
  • normally, it should cost way over $1000
  • it’s a last generation treatment
  • scientists are working to release it within the next years

Basically – they claim this formula is a miraculous secret treatment that is going to be used everywhere once it’s released on the market.

However, it’s going to cost a fortune – and until then, they’re offering it to you for $39, which is a bargain.

Honestly, that looks 100% like a scam. Just tell me – who could believe such a silly story? I would definitely not.

I will enter into more details in this review – but the point is:

  • if it was so miraculous, everyone would know about it

So it couldn’t be a secret if it was so good. That’s what makes me sure that it’s a scam.

Now let me go a bit deeper into this product and show you why it’s fake – let’s start with the ingredients.

 

 

The Ingredients – A Quick Analysis


Patriot Flex has some real problems at this chapter:

  • they’re only mentioned briefly (in the description)
  • no info about the dose

Now – that’s a major sign that the company is trying to hide something. But I will tell you more on that below.

For now – let’s take a quick look at the ingredients.

(You can find them mentioned throughout the official description):

Now let me tell you MY OPINION about each: 

  1. Leopard’s Bane – it’s actually Arnica Montana. (1)
  2. Suku Marchu – an ingredient that Google has no idea about.
  3. Karpuram – that’s the Indian name for Camphor (and it’s no secret ingredient).
  4. Boxberry – it helps inflammation, but not as much as the website claims. (2)
  5. Eucalyptus – it doesn’t do anything special for pain.
  6. “And much, much more”- what exactly?

Once again – there are no doses mentioned, which I why I can’t give any clear verdict.

But from my experience with supplements, I can tell you the following things:

  • these ingredients are pretty weak (compared to others)
  • their effect isn’t as strong as they claim
  • the company is trying to make them look more special (they use the Indian name for camphor)

In reality – these substances aren’t anything special.

Besides, they claim there’s “and much, much more” – there’s probably nothing else but they want to make it look better.

Conclusion: Overall, the ingredients are pretty basic – it’s just the company trying to make them look much better than they really are.

But now – let’s move to some serious stuff. Let me show you the reasons why I think that Patriot Flex is a scam. 

I will try to be as unbiased as possible – so that you can judge fairly. 

 

 

Problem #1 – Unprofessional Website


In my opinion – that’s the best proof that Patriot Flex isn’t a quality product.

Its website has a very ugly design, if you ask me:

  • seems totally unsafe
  • looks like a letter
  • there’s very little info about the product
  • no info about the company
  • it tells an emotional story to convince you to buy

Basically – Patriot Flex’s website is a long page that doesn’t focus on the product itself. Just check yourself here and see.

Instead – it focuses on emotion and tries to convince you that their formula can cure your joint pain miraculously. Which is totally not true.

To be honest, it’s the kind of website I would never buy from. 

Once you get to the purchase page – it starts to look better. But there’s very little info as well. 

So overall – the company didn’t invest a lot in that website. This usually means 2 things:

  • it’s not a product that sells well
  • they’re not a serious company

Judging from my experience – products with this kind of websites are usually scams. But I have some other reasons why I have this opinion on Patriot Flex.

 

 

Problem #2 – Hidden Ingredients


This is a major problem of this product: 

  • the ingredients aren’t mentioned anywhere
  • there’s no info about the doses
  • you can’t find a picture of the label

Basically – you can find very little info about Patriot Flex on the official website. I mean:

  • what it has inside
  • how you should use it

Instead – they focus on convincing you to buy it (by showing you its “amazing” benefits).

Now – 99% of the products on the market have lots of info about the ingredients. The other 1% are almost always scams.

And can you find anything about Patriot Flex’s ingredients? Not really – so it’s among that 1% percent. 

Honestly, this a clear sign that the company isn’t very transparent.

Now – they are probably trying to hide the ingredients for several possible reasons:

  • very low doses
  • some ingredients may actually not exist
  • no studies on those substances

I mean – they surely have a reason why they’re not showing up the ingredients (like every other product does).

So it’s pretty clear that something’s not right – in my opinion.

 

 

Problem #3 – Overestimated Benefits


So the thing is – Patriot Flex claims to have a secret formula, while all it has are basic ingredients. 

In fact, most of its ingredients have very little to do with pain relieving:

  • Leopard’s Bane is actually Arnica montana
  • Arnica helps pain – but it’s pretty weak compared to Turmeric and Boswellia
  • Suku Marchu is a substance that no one knows about
  • Karpuram isn’t an Indian secret – it’s just the regular camphor
  • You can find camphor in most pain creams
  • Boxberry isn’t such a powerful anti-inflammatory 

Just do a research on Google and you will see that I didn’t make up all this. 

These ingredients alone are actually pretty basic – but the company is trying to make them look better.

That’s why they change their names and add some amazing benefits (that aren’t even real).

And one more thing:

  • they say there are some other ingredients
  • but there’s no word about them

Does this seem normal to you? Believe me – I’ve tried lots of supplements and none of them claimed such a thing. 

So it’s pretty clear that there’s something not right about Patriot Flex – otherwise they should be totally transparent.

 

 

Problem #4 – Fake Claims


Now, I’m not trying to criticize this product without any proofs. But I have to be subjective here – and that’s how I see things.

So here’s what Patriot Flex claims:

  • it has a secret formula from Swedish healers
  • it prevents inflammation before it actually starts
  • the real price of this formula is over $1000
  • its ingredients have several studies behind

Now, my question is – if Patriot Flex can do such miracles, why hasn’t anyone heard about it?

Why isn’t it super popular – since it does what no other product can do?

That’s why I’m so sure that it’s a scam. Plus, check out this thing:

  • they claim to have several studies behind
  • but there’s no link to any study
  • I did a search in Google but couldn’t find anything

So to me it’s pretty clear that all these are fake claims. If you find any study on Patriot Flex – please let me know, and I will add it in this review.

But I’ve searched a lot and there isn’t anything. So for me that is enough to tell that Patriot Flex only claims fake stuff. 

 

 

 

Problem #5 – Questionable Reviews


Before writing this, I tried searching for customer opinions and reviews. Obviously, I couldn’t find anything.

The only reviews I found were on the official website. But I tend to think they were fake:

  • all customers had a photo
  • they were all super satisfied 
  • they were praising Patriot Flex over and over again
  • there was no place you could write your own review

So basically – these reviews seemed very similar.

That’s why they were probably made by the company itself – which is something normal for this kind of products.

When you can’t have positive reviews – you can only make them yourself, right?

That’s the reason why I’m pretty sure they’re fake. So I wouldn’t trust them, if I were you.

 

 

Problem #6 – Very Expensive


Compared to other joint products – Patriot Flex is really expensive:

  • it costs $39 per bottle
  • one bottle has only 2 ounces

But there’s one thing I didn’t mention – Patriot Flex comes as a roll-on. So it’s not a supplement or an oral product.

It’s a topical product so you have to apply it directly on the painful spot.

Honestly – that makes it even more expensive:

  • most creams or roll-ons cost under $20
  • they also have a higher quantity

Besides, Patriot Flex doesn’t contain any special ingredient. I’ve said it before and I will repeat it:

  • its ingredients are basic actually
  • they only want to look better than they really are

So paying $39 for 2 ounces of basic stuff is way too much – if you ask me. I would definitely not buy it – it’s simply not worth it.

You can buy a much better pain reliever for less – so it’s up to you what you choose.

 

 

My Verdict – Is Patriot Flex A Scam?


Short answer: Definitely. It promises some things that aren’t real and it doesn’t do a lot in reality. 

Here’s what I mean:

  • claims to have a secret formula that costs over $1000
  • its ingredients are made to look better than they really are
  • also, they’re not mentioned anywhere
  • their doses are hidden
  • no real customer reviews
  • super expensive

And if you needed another reason why it’s not going to work, here it is – it’s a cream.

No cream can heal your pain – they only hide it for a few hours, and then it strikes again just as strong as before.

So it’s some kind of masking the symptoms – when you can’t treat the cause.

That’s why I don’t recommend creams in general – but Patriot Flex is even worse than most creams:

  • it costs more than double
  • it promises impossible things

So I couldn’t possibly recommend it – it’s a big waste of money. If you really want something that works, try a supplement. 

It heals your pain by treating the cause – and that’s what you need on the long term.

    Hi, I was considering Patriot Flex as one of the options for my shoulder pain. The pain doesn’t bother me all the time, but it comes up mostly in rainy days or when there’s a lot of humidity (I live in Ohio so we have cold weather pretty often).

    I am strongly with you on the fact that no cream can solve one problem it can only hide it. I thought creams to be more comfortable than a supplement, but after reading your arguments, I realized it’s much easier to take a couple of pills every day instead of applying a layer of cream every few hours.

    So I’m starting to consider supplements as my first choice, especially since they have similar prices with the creams I used to own. 

    Patriot Flex to be factual is expensive just a bottle $39. I would surely not spend so much money on a small bottle, especially after reading all the downsides from your review (I checked them on my own and they’re real, so thank you for spotting out the problems in an honest manner).

  2. Heather says:

    Hi Nancy, it’s great to hear this review helped you take a decision.

    Patriot Flex is surely not the thing you need. If you really want a cream, there’s no point spending $40 for 2 oz.

    But in your case, I would surely recommend a supplement – it’s pretty clear the cause of your pain is on the inside. So as long as you use creams, it’s not going to get better.

    I wish you had given more details about your pain – because I’m not very sure what to recommend you right now. 

    I don’t think you have any cartilage problems, it’s probably just a chronic pain bothering you from time to time (surely because of those weather changes you mentioned).

    So in this case, I think turmeric is the best choice for you:

    – it’s a natural herb with lots of benefits – especially for inflammation

    – it can decrease the pain in several days

    – compared to other herbs, it’s easy to find and pretty cheap

    Now – I would advise you to get a supplement with these 3 ingredients: turmeric powder + turmeric extract + bioperine. That’s the best combination.

    My #1 recommendation is Turmeric Plus, because it works really well and it’s even cheaper than most. But there are many other supplements that work – it’s only the price that depends.

  3. Louis says:

    Hi, you read my thoughts about the part with honest website reviews. I also become skeptical when I stumble on a site with rave reviews about a product without any option for me to drop my review. Patriot Flex’s page looks like the typical one for this kind of products. 

    My mom is currently from a joint dislocation and it has really been disturbing her, so I was looking for potent joint pain remedies. It’s clear that Patriot Flex will not do, I wouldn’t pay so much for it anyway. Any pointers as to what we could do?

  4. Heather says:

    Hello Louis. Yeah, Patriot Flex does look like a typical scam, in my opinion. 

    If your mom really has a joint dislocation, she should immediately see a doctor. Supplements and natural remedies don’t help in this case, because only an orthropedist can return the bones and joints to their normal position.

    But if she already saw a doctor, it’s all right. I imagine she didn’t get this diagnosis herself, so she probably saw a medical professional. 

    Was it the doctor telling you it’s a joint dislocation? He surely prescribed your mom a treatment as well. 

    So if she doesn’t have any other joint problems, there’s no point taking supplements and extra stuff. 

    Ice packs are the only thing I recommend her, because her problem is temporary and it should go away in a couple of weeks. But it’s the doctor that knows best in cases like joint dislocation, so your mom really has to follow the treatment he gave her.

    Hope this helps.

  5. Allison Weasley says:

    Patriot Flex is a scam, I tell you for sure. I ordered one bottle for almost $40 last week and it’s almost gone by now, but my knee pain isn’t any lower. I added a lot of it everytime I used it, because adding a little didn’t help. I thought adding more and more would decrease the pain eventually, but my knee is swollen and aching just as before.

    The bottle is really tiny, by the way (not sure if you mentioned that). If I added less, maybe it would last for 2 weeks but surely not more than that. 

  6. Heather says:

    Hi Allison, it’s great to hear from someone who really tried this lotion. Unfortunately, your results are similar to most people who tried Patriot Flex – no major improvement.

    So now I’m even more sure that it’s a scam behind. After all, it’s really expensive for a 2 oz lotion. 

    The biggest problem I have with it is the fact that it claims to be a miraculous product. Not just that it’s not “miraculous”, but it doesn’t even help too much. That’s what bothers me most.

    Thank you for sharing your experience with Patriot Flex, it’s always good to hear a personal experience.

    Regarding your knee pain, I don’t know the cause of your problem. But considering it’s swollen and painful, I think the problem is on the inside.

    So a supplement would be the best choice, since it treats the cause – not just the pain.

    I would recommend you one based on turmeric, because that’s the best natural anti-inflammatory. But if you want some more options, I tried several supplements that worked great for knee pain.

  7. David says:

    Hi, I bought Patriot Flex and it helps my knee pain. I tried other creams too and I always felt better, but not 100% better. I saw the ads for Patriot Flex and liked the idea of being a secret formula cream. I don’t know if it is or not, but I felt better after using it. Will probably not buy more because it’s expensive, I appreciate your honesty but I don’t think it’s a scam.

  8. Heather says:

    Hello David. Wow, yours is probably the first positive opinion I hear about Patriot Flex (and I checked out many reviews). 

    But it’s great to hear it helped – after all, maybe it’s not such a terrible product.

    To be honest, I’m not extremely surprised, since you said that everything you tried helped you. What kind of pain do you have in your knees? Does it come back after using a cream? 

    If it doesn’t, it might be something minor – which explains it all. 

    But if it does, I think the best for you would be to find out the cause behind. If you only use creams whenever the pain strikes in, the real problem will surely worsen over time. So your joint pain will only increase. 

    Thanks again for letting me know how Patriot Flex worked for you. Since there exists one satisfied person, my opinion about it isn’t that terrible.

  9. Roe jackson says:

    Patriot Flex is a big scam!!! There’s no secret formula, it’s just a bunch of herbs with anti swelling proprieties. Interesting enough, they name each herb differently than its original name, so that it can impress us… Sure, karpuram sounds more interesting that camphor. But you see camphor in every $15 american cream.

    Really appreciate your pointing out the real name of each plant, for those who have no idea about that.

    Let’s be serious, you can buy each ingredient from Amazon at less than $5 each. Why would you pay $40 for this silly thing, since it’s also small?

  10. Heather says:

    Hi Roe, thanks for letting me know what you think about Patriot Flex. 

    You’re totally right about the ingredients and their weird names – it’s only meant to impress potential customers, as far as I believe. As you said, karpuram sounds better than the mere camphor. So one would be more willing to buy Patriot Flex if it contains different ingredients.

    It’s great to hear there are people like you, who can tell if a product is a scam judging after that.

    I also agree that you can get these substances separately for a much lower price. There are also enough creams that contain some of them (and they are far cheaper).

    So overall, your opinion seems to be the same as mine – Patriot Flex is surely not worth buying, since it’s a scam.

    For these money, you can get a much better joint supplement that will treat your pain for real (not just claim to do it).

  11. Enrique Pasion says:

    Really do appreciate this review of Patriot Flex. Have actually been looking for a reliable pain reliever and I have heard of this. Good thing I came across your article and really should be careful when purchasing meds off the internet.

  12. Heather Pharm.D. says:

    Hi Enrique, it’s great to hear my article was helpful! I definitely don’t recommend you to buy Patriot Flex, it’s surely among the products that are worth buying. Instead of spending some real money and get no relief, better try a product that is 100% legit and works. Thanks for your opinion.
