BeautyFlex® is especially necessary for individuals who endure a constant pressure on their joints bodies; most athletes and fitness enthusiasts are constantly loading and unloading their bodies depending on their particular training regimens.
Glucosamine is essential for this construction of strong cartilage and connective tissues. It is the foundation of proteoglycans, the large protein molecules that behave like sponges to hold water and give connective tissues their elasticity effects, and other substances that form protective tissues. It is the foundation of proteoglycans, the large protein molecules that behave like sponges to hold water and give connective tissues their elasticity effects, and other substances that form protective tissues.
Glucosamine provides a buffering action that protects against the wear and tear of joints, and consequently, tendons, ligaments, bones, skin, nails, mucous membranes, and other various body tissues cannot form properly without it. The body will normally produce sufficient amounts of glucosamine needed to generate connective tissues, however the rate at which the body utilizes glucosamine begins to steadily change with increased athletic activity, age, injuries, and other forms of degeneration. This can lead to a reduction in the amount of proteoglycans and protective lubricating substances like synovial fluid that are essential for protection of the joints. Thus, greater amounts of glucosamine are required, but less is produced internally. Oral glucosamine has been shown to be easily absorbed and lead to the promotion of healthy connective tissues.
Among glucosamine and other ingredients, BeautyFlex® also combines MSM, methyl-sulfonyl-methane, which is a unique biological sulfur necessary for human functioning. Sulfur is an activator of thiamine, biotin, Vitamin C, and pantothenic acid and offers the chemical links that form collagen and keratin. Collagen cannot be formed in the body without the presence of sulfur, thus, joint repair cannot take place without sulfur. MSM has been suggested to improve joint flexibility, improve circulation, reduce inflammatory disorders (arthritis), reduce stiffness/swelling, reduce scar tissue, and break up calcium deposits.

What Is Glucosamine?
Glucosamine is a natural chemical compound in your body. But it also comes in the form of a supplement. There are two main types: hydrochloride and sulfate.
What Does Glucosamine Do?
The glucosamine in your body helps keep up the health of your cartilage -- the rubbery tissue that cushions bones at your joints. But as you get older, your levels of this compound begin to drop, which leads to the gradual breakdown of the joint.
Some people have also used glucosamine to try to treat rheumatoid arthritis and other conditions, such as inflammatory bowel disease, asthma, allergies, chronic venous insufficiency, sports injuries, temporomandibular joint problems (TMJ), and long-term low back pain.
What Is Chondroitin?
Chondroitin is a substance that occurs naturally in the connective tissues of people and animals. As a supplement in higher doses than is found naturally, chondroitin is a popular treatment for osteoarthritis. As an osteoarthritis treatment, chondroitin is often used along with another supplement, glucosamine.
