ftentimes, the greatest change happens as a result of someone becoming overly frustrated with the way things are, prompting them to find or create a better way.
So when Dr. David Katz was offered the opportunity to help create a new joint compound, he seized the chance to build something new that could offer superior joint relief.
Dr. Katz is recognized by peers throughout the entire medical community as a thought leader in nutrition, prevention/health promotion, weight management, and integrative wellness. He currently serves in his prestigious role as Founding Director of the Integrative Medicine Center at Griffin Hospital.
With such extensive knowledge, experience, and passion, there couldn't be a more qualified expert to take a stand against the joint epidemic we're all facing.
Dr. Katz worked closely with a leading supplement developer to come up with a carefully curated selection of the most cutting-edge joint ingredients in the precise amounts backed by scientific studies.
Here's what Dr. Katz had to say about the fomulation...
"Each ingredient was selected based on the latest clinical studies, research, and plenty of scientific evidence to support maximum effectiveness.
The first ingredient we chose is a patent-pending, highly concentrated form of Boswellia Serrata called ApresFlex®. Boswellia Serrata can switch off pro-inflammatory cytokines and mediators, which helps relieve joint soreness. By addressing inflammation, which is at the source of discomfort, it's a powerful ingredient for overall joint care.
In addition, one particular study on ApresFlex showed subjects experienced significant relief in as little as 1 week of taking it. Next was a patented type of undenatured collagen called UC-II® with some rather intriguing improvements on stiffness and mobility. A recent Harvard study showed that people suffering from joint conditions who took undenatured type II collagen experienced substantial relief.
UC-II collagen is considered to be a much more powerful alternative to glucosamine chondroitin. In fact, studies show that 40 mg of UC-II in certain aspects is two times more effective than 1,500 mg of glucosamine and 1,200 mg of chondroitin in promoting joint health.
With that kind of evidence, our team agreed it made the cut for our new formulation. This also meant we didn't need glucosamine, which was a goal from the beginning. So many individuals have developed allergies to shellfish, in addition to those who find glucosamine chondroitin supplements to be ineffective for joint relief.
Another nutrient that's gained a lot of attention lately due to its broad spectrum of benefits is Resveratrol. A natural polyphenolic compound that's found in the skin of red grapes and berries, Resveratrol helps ease joint tenderness and protect tissue and ligaments for optimal joint structure and function. This was a safe, yet super-concentrated ingredient that would complement the formula well. Resveratrol has been studied for its anti-aging effects, and thus may offer health benefits beyond the joints.
Finally, I approved an extract derived from black pepper called BioPerine®. What makes BioPerine so valuable is the fact that it greatly increases the bioavailability of a variety of nutrients through increased absorption. In other words, it promotes optimal absorption of the UC-II, ApresFlex and Resveratrol-leading to maximum results.
Combining ingredients this way is what makes this formulation so impressive to me. There is careful sourcing, attention to detail, and really creative thinking about how nutrients work in together to deliver the following benefits:
- Improves joint flexibility & stiffness
- Provides fast relief from joint tenderness
- Enhances mobility during daily activities
- Just one tiny, daily capsule
It's called Instaflex Advanced and it sets an exciting new standard for joint supplements.
