Flex Hx® is a comprehensive formula that includes specific peptides needed to support healthy ligaments and tendons. The body’s natural supply of Collagen begins to decline at about age 25 and at a rate of about 1.5% per year. That means by age 60, you’ve lost about half of your natural collagen supply! This allows micro tears and stiffness to develop in your ligaments and tendons, making you more likely to suffer with an injury.†
Flex Hx® is formulated with Collagen Hydrolysate; hydrolysate means specific enzymes are added to the Collagen to break it down, releasing its collagen peptides to help restore strength, integrity, and elasticity to aging ligaments and tendons. Dermatan Sulfate is found in ligaments and tendons and fills in the spaces between cells, making it essential for elasticity. Its concentration in ligaments and tendons declines with age. Flex Hx® also offers pineapple-sourced Bromelain for comfort, and a small amount of Copper and Manganese which are important for the structure of ligaments and tendons.†

The Science Behind The Ingredients In Flex Hx®
Research published in Nutrients found that Collagen Hydrolysate Peptides have numerous health-supportive benefits for the skin, gut, absorption rate, bones, teeth, skin, hair, nails, tendons and ligaments and muscles. Collagen is a source of physiologically active peptides and conditionally indispensable amino acids that have the potential to optimize health and address physiological needs posed by aging and exercise. 
Research from Pharmaceuticals demonstrates the significance of dermatan sulfate on the health and integrity of tendons and ligaments in humans. The indispensable roles of dermatan sulfate-proteoglycans (DS-PGs) have been shown to support tendon and ligament health. 
Research published in Evidence Based Complementary Alternative Medicine demonstrates bromelain as a support for proper inflammatory processes in the body. 
Preliminary evidence published in Nutrition suggests that various nutrients such as proteins, amino acids (leucine, arginine, glutamine), vitamins C and D, manganese, copper, zinc, and phytochemicals may be useful in supporting tendon growth and overall support.
