Universal Nutrition Animal Pak Flex Powder 101: Animal Flex has won the prestigious 'Joint Supplement of the Year' award eight years in a row. But more importantly, Animal Flex has changed the lives of lifters around the world and has helped keep them in the gym, day in and day out.
When you’re building a house, you need to make sure that its foundation is rock solid, because that massive structure puts tremendous pressure on the underlying base. As an athlete, you should focus as much attention on the foundation as on the structure that sits atop it. Your body’s foundation is your joints, ligaments, tendons, and all the connective tissue the framework that supports your growing muscle. The harder you train, the more stress you put on your structure. Each workout not only taxes muscle but sinew and can, over time, weaken this vital connective tissue. Remember, when a foundation crumbles, the house is quick to follow and the bigger the house, the bigger that potential.
Animal Flex works by helping to strengthen joints and ligaments, shielding them from the daily wear and tear brought about rigorous training. The ingredients in Animal Flex can help maintain healthy joint function, elasticity, and flexibility. Many of Animal Flex’s active ingredients provide the basic building blocks that are required to maintain human structural integrity.
Animal Flex, like other Animal supplements, is complete and comprehensive. Each pack of Animal Flex consists of several key protective complexes: (1) a potent joint construction complex to help repair connective tissue; (2) a lubrication compound to help cushion the joints from lifting; (3) a support complex to help promote rehabilitation and reduce soreness; and (4) an essential vitamin/mineral blend to underscore optimal joint health.
As a joint 'constructor', Animal Flex is powered by proven reconstruction nutrients. Animal Flex provides the joints with the essential raw materials such as glucosamine (two forms), MSM, and chondroitin… Ingredients designed to naturally protect and restore joint health while strengthening the underlying cartilage and connective tissue. These nutrients, once absorbed, can work quickly and efficiently to aid in the rebuilding of cartilage.
From a joint lubrication point of view, hyaluronic acid (HA), patented cetyl myristoleate (CMO), and flax seed oil provide the “lubricant” needed to coat your joints and protect them from the constant grind of training excess and resulting stiffness. These potent joint lubricators naturally restore the oils present in the synovial fluid to make joints work smoothly and painlessly.
When it comes to joint support, Animal Flex utilizes potent natural herbal extracts to help address the free radical load—a consequence of inflammation of the joints. Herbs and extracts like turmeric, boswellia and ginger root have been shown to help inhibit pro-inflammatory metabolites, which leads to a strong and prolonged anti-inflammatory effect. A reduction in inflammation is critical for maintaining pain free joints and for protection against degenerative joint issues often related to years of heavy lifting.
Unlike pain relievers that only mask the symptoms, the compounds in Animal Flex offer real support and promotes long term joint health.
Animal Flex also incorporates a specialized vitamin and mineral blend. This blend is added to provide maximum nutritional support. This key vitamin mix provides you with the basic essential micro-nutrients needed for joint health. Nutrients such as Vitamins C, E, zinc, selenium and manganese are needed for to support healthy joints. These nutrients provide the backbone for proper joint health.
