GNC TriFlex is an over the counter pill that is sold in the form of a tablet. It is a product from the massive GNC line of supplements. It is designed to help promote joint health in order to make workouts easier, to prevent injuries and to reduce the discomfort from those that have already occurred.
The official webpage for this product on the GNC website says that it contains a “clinical-strength” dose of glucosamine and chondroitin, as well as MSM. It supports mobility and flexibility among the joints of your body.
At the time this review was written, one bottle of the product contained 120 tablets. It was being sold for $32.99 on the GNC website. Since one serving of GNC TriFlex is 3 tablets, this means that there are forty servings in each bottle.
The ingredients that make up GNC TriFlex are: sodium, glucosamine hydrochloride, chondroitin sulfate sodium, methylsulfonyl-methane (MSM) and hyaluronic acid. The non-active ingredients that makeup these tablets are: Cellulose, Crospovidone, Stearic Acid Vegetable Source, Magnesium Stearate Vegetable Source, Silica, Titanium Dioxide (Natural Mineral Whitener), Polyethylene Glycol, Talc. As there aren’t any animal-based ingredients within those substances, this means that it is appropriate for use for people who are following a vegan or plant-based diet.
That said, it does contain ingredients sourced from crustaceans (shrimp) which means that people with certain seafood allergies should be careful and avoid this product.
As this appears to be a new formula from a previous product that had been called TriFlex Sport, there weren’t any customer reviews on the original website yet. It appears as though the original formula had contained vitamin C and that this has been replaced with sodium in the new formulation.
Off the official site and on other websites that sell this product – such as Amazon, for instance – the reviews were quite positive. Among the 175 customer reviews that had been left on Amazon for this product at the time of this review, the average rating was 4.5 stars out of a possible 5 stars. This is a strong rating for a supplement product. In fact, 75 percent of the reviews were 5 stars, where only 6 percent were 1 star.
That said, it’s still very important to speak with your doctor before beginning this type of supplement. It’s also a good idea to speak with a doctor or personal trainer before exercising with joints that had been causing you discomfort.
