When you are seeking relief from nagging, persistent pain…nothing equals the all-out effectiveness of Syn-flex Power Plus.

This easy-to-use “roll-on” pain reliever provides immediate and fast-acting relief for joint and muscle pain too. Combined with the use of Syn-flex, there is no finer combination of products to bring your arthritis pain under control!

Ingredients Include:
Glucosamine HCL : Glucosamine HCL is a 99% pure product. Glucosamine supplementation enhances the ability of the body to manufacture collagen and proteoglycans, which are essential for rebuilding joints. Glucosamine also enhances the ability of the body to manufacture synovial fluid, which lubricates your joints.

MSM (MethylSulfonylMethane) : A major detoxifier of the body, is responsible for opening the sodium/potassium pump in every cell allowing fluids into the cell membrane while permitting toxins to exit. Great transporter for nutrients.

Camphor : counter- irritant, anesthetic and antiseptic properties

Menthol : Stimulant, cooling agent

Isopropyl Myristate : used in topical medicinal preparations where good absorption through the skin is desired.

A special message from J. R. Rogers, president of Activex America

As Syn-flex users know, we strive to bring you only the highest-quality products. The enormous success of Syn-flex should tell you how committed we are to those standards.

I have said over and over again in our information website pages that using high-quality, liquid glucosamine is a first line defense against osteoarthritis. I have also said that the use of topical analgesics that are applied externally are not the answer to effectively rehabilitating damaged cartilage.

However, no matter how effective Syn-flex is standing alone, some of you are going to experience some pain problems from time to time. Of course, that includes both joint and muscle pain. That is why we have added Syn-flex Power Plus to our pain-fighting arsenal.

For those who know my personal story, I suffered severe damage to my spine that forced me to undergo cervical spinal reconstructive surgery. It would be difficult to describe a more difficult area to control pain and at the same time, try to assist in the rehabilitation of the damage.

Syn-flex® changed my life in a major way. By combining the powerful synergistic ingredients found in Syn-flex Power Plus, I can handle just about anything.

Try it yourself! I guarantee you won’t be disappointed.

To your continued good health,
J. R. Rogers, President

Recently released clinical studies confirm that using the appropriate combination of ingredients working synergistically provided nearly instantaneous relief for those who suffer from chronic osteoarthritis pain.*

Clinical Study

Topical Camphor/Glucosamine/Chondroitin Sulfate Effective For Osteoarthritis Knee Pain

Quoted in Part

NEW YORK, NY — March 3, 2003 — Results of a clinical study published in the March 2003 Journal of Rheumatology show long term benefits of topical application of a preparation containing camphor, glucosamine and chondroitin sulfate. The study, “A Randomised, Double-Blind, Placebo-Controlled Trial of a Topical Cream Containing Glucosamine Sulfate, Chondroitin Sulfate and Camphor for Osteoarthritis of the Knee,” shows continuous reduction of pain due to osteoarthritis of the knee, with clinically significant results within four weeks. According to the study’s principal investigator, the study also suggests that topical application of these agents… is an effective route of administration.

Under the auspices of the Department of Complementary Medicine, RMIT University, and the Centre for Complementary Medicine, Monash University, both in Melbourne, Australia, a single centered, randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled trial was performed with 63 subjects chosen from the community after assessment for eligibility. Key to the assessment criteria was a diagnosis of osteoarthritis of the knee based on the American College of Rheumatology definition, which includes knee pain most days during the prior month, as well as morning stiffness of the knee for 30 minutes or less. Patients were randomly assigned to use either a topical preparation containing camphor, glucosamine, and chondroitin sulfate, or a placebo, for eight weeks. The two treatment groups were similar with respect to demographic composition and illness history.

The active preparation was a water-soluble cream containing glucosamine sulfate, chondroitin sulfate and shark cartilage of which 10 to 30 percent is chondroitin sulfate, camphor…. The placebo preparation was a simple cosmetic cream that used conventional skin emollients, petrolatum and mineral oil, and conventional emulsifiers; stearic acid and glycerol stearate, rather than the proprietary technology.

The primary outcome measure was an assessment of subjective pain using a Visual Analogue Scale (VAS). Secondary outcome measures included measures of pain, stiffness and physical function using the Western Ontario and the McMaster Universities Osteoarthritis Index (WOMAC) and quality of life using the SF-36 questionnaire.

The study showed a significant difference between the two groups existed after the first day of use of creams. Nearly all of the patients… obtained immediate pain relief. Additionally, the results showed there was a greater mean sustained reduction in pain at both four weeks and eight weeks for the JointFlex group compared to the placebo group. A majority… experienced gradually and continually improving pain relief over the eight weeks. A surprising result was that with continued use, one-third of the… group had their chronic osteoarthritis pain completely or nearly completely eliminated within eight weeks or less.

According to Marc Cohen, MD, PhD, Department of Complementary Medicine, Faculty of Life Sciences, RMIT University, and principal investigator of this study, “The observed gradual and continual improvement in pain scores is likely to be due to the glucosamine and chondroitin content and this is consistent with previous studies.”

Oral administration of glucosamine and chondroitin sulfate have been consistently shown in previous studies to relieve the pain and joint stiffness associated with osteoarthritis and long-term consumption of glucosamine may reduce the radiographic progression of osteoarthritis of the knee.

Says Dr. Cohen, “Our results clearly show that the proprietary system in this product effectively targets osteoarthritic knee pain and provides immediate pain relief along with long term improvement of pain with continued use.” Dr. Cohen adds, “The study shows promise, regardless of mode of action, for those osteoarthritis patients who have not had success with oral glucosamine/chondroitin, or, who prefer to apply a topical preparation over taking numerous pills several times a day.” The Journal of Rheumatology is available online at http://www.jrheum.com.
