Flexium, a new dietary supplement for arthritis
Patients are seeing ads for Flexium, a new dietary supplement for arthritis...from Boehringer Ingelheim Pharmaceuticals.
There are two versions. Flexium Joint Comfort contains SAMe... Flexium Joint Comfort & Cartilage Renewal contains SAMe and glucosamine.
SAMe (S-adenosyl-L-methionine) is best known as an antidepressant. But SAMe also has antiinflammatory effects...and there's good evidence that it reduces joint pain as well as NSAIDs.
