Snap, crackle, pop! This may be the catch phrase for a very popular cereal, but in my world it serves as the theme song to my rising out of bed every morning.
It seems that once my feet hit the floor, every joint adjusts, making the crackle of a fireplace sound tame in comparison. I’m sure it’s from the years of weight training, but if it were just sounds being made, there would be no problem.
What is a problem is the associated pain with each pop. This can be a problem if the pain never ceases and can seriously hinder your training efforts.
Luckily ALLMAX Nutrition has developed a much-needed product to combat the pain and stiffness of overused joints, and that product is Advanced ALLFLEX.
Let’s take a closer look to find out why Advanced ALLFLEX works so well.
Advanced ALLFLEX is a synergistic and balanced blend of six complementary ingredients designed to:
- Rapidly and Effectively Repair Damaged Joints
- Restore Joint Mobility
- Reduce Inflammation
- Reduce Joint Pain
I’m going to focus on Methylsulfonylmethane (MSM) which can be found in Advanced ALLFLEX in a hefty 450-mg dosage.
MSM is a popular dietary supplement used as a single agent and in combination with other nutrients, and reported to be beneficial for arthritis. It is a source of sulfur, which is a vital building block of joints, cartilage, hair, skin and nails. Seeing as how many bodybuilders put their joints through extreme stress, it’s only natural for them to wear down and cause pain. According to a study on arthritis pain, supplementing with MSM in a very short period of time improved symptoms of pain and increased mobility of the damaged joint.
Advanced ALLFLEX as a Preventative Measure
What if my joints don’t hurt, could I still use Advanced ALLFLEX?
Of course, and actually that would be a very smart, proactive thing to do. MSM will provide a security net, if you will, for already healthy tissue. Eventually all the wear and tear is going to catch up to you, but supplementing with MSM could prolong the inevitable and keep you training for a long time and at a level you are happy with.
MSM has reportedly been successful in treating the following:
- Accidental/surface injury (cuts, bruises, scars, burns, etc)
- Carpal Tunnel Syndrome
- Headache, Migraine
- Localized Sports Injury (e.g. tennis elbow)
- Lower Back Pain
- Muscle Aches
- Osteoarthritis and Rheumatoid Arthritis
- Whiplash (neck injury)
- Repetitive Strain Injury (RSI)
As you can see, many of these chronic pain issues are associated with the rigors of bodybuilding and intense training. Adding Advanced ALLFLEX with MSM to your supplement protocol makes good sense.
Even though MSM can be found in fresh fruits and vegetables, it deteriorates very quickly and any processing of the food itself literally destroys it. As with any supplement, its use in conjunction with other products usually enhances its effects, and that is why ALLMAX Nutrition took an already fantastic compound and added it to five other ingredients making Advanced ALLFLEX the best joint care product on the market today.
