Description
  • Comprehensive Vitapak® program that supports improved join health with TriFlex™ Fast-Acting, Triple Strength Fish Oil, White Willow Bark and MSM
  • Maximum strength, fast-acting joint comfort-works in days
  • Rebuilds cartilage and lubricates joints
  • Supports natural anti-inflammatory response
GNC TriFlex™ Complete Vitapak® features clinically studied ingredients that support total joint health and provide joint comfort in as early as two weeks. These ingredients support mobility and flexibility, rebuild cartilage and lubricate joints.

TriFlex™ Fast-Acting – This maximum strength, fast-acting comfort formula features the full potency, clinically studied doses of glucosamine and chondroitin joint comfort and flexibility. Glucosamine and chondroitin help preserve joint function and rebuild cartilage. It combines two important structural components of joint cartilage, MSM and hyaluronic acid (HA), which helps with cushioning joints and maintains the elastic integrity of skin. It also includes 30 mg of vitamin C. Vitamin C is involved in the synthesis of collagen.

Triple Strength Fish Oil – Supports the body’s natural anti-inflammatory response and promotes joint health. Fish oil naturally provides omega-3 fatty acids EPA (Eicosapentaenoic Acid) and DHA (Docosahexaenoic Acid). One enteric coated softgel capsule features a total of 900 mg of omega-3 fatty acids; 540 mg of EPA and 360 mg of DHA. The enteric coating controls or reduces fishy burps by allowing the softgel to break down and absorb in the small intestines.

White Willow Bart Extract – Provides joint comfort in as early as two weeks. The combination of glucosamine and chondroitin with white willow bark provides dual action benefits for joint comfort.

MSM – A naturally occurring organic sulfur that provides an important component for joint cartilage.

Health Notes

Joint Health

Joint Health
  • Reliable and relatively consistent scientific data showing a substantial health benefit.
  • Contradictory, insufficient, or preliminary studies suggesting a health benefit or minimal health benefit.
  • For an herb, supported by traditional use but minimal or no scientific evidence. For a supplement, little scientific support.

Our proprietary "Star-Rating" system was developed to help you easily understand the amount of scientific support behind each supplement in relation to a specific health condition. While there is no way to predict whether a vitamin, mineral, or herb will successfully treat or prevent associated health conditions, our unique ratings tell you how well these supplements are understood by the medical community, and whether studies have found them to be effective for other people.

For over a decade, our team has combed through thousands of research articles published in reputable journals. To help you make educated decisions, and to better understand controversial or confusing supplements, our medical experts have digested the science into these three easy-to-follow ratings. We hope this provides you with a helpful resource to make informed decisions towards your health and well-being.

Osteoarthritis
Dose: 800 to 1,200 mg a day
Many trials have shown that supplementing with chondroitin sulfate reduces pain, increases joint mobility, and promotes healing within the joints.(more)
Osteoarthritis
Dose: 2.25 to 6.0 grams per day
In one trial, supplementing with methyl-sulfonylmethane significantly reduced pain and improved overall physical functioning in patients with osteoarthritis of the knee. (more)
Osteoarthritis
Dose: Refer to label instructions
Studies have shown glucosamine hydrochloride to be effective at reducing pain and improving symptoms in people with osteoarthritis.(more)
Osteoarthritis
Dose: 800 to 1,200 mg a day

Chondroitin sulfate (CS) is a major component of the lining of joints. The structure of CS includes molecules related to glucosamine sulfate. CS levels have been reported to be reduced in joint cartilage affected by osteoarthritis. Possibly as a result, CS supplementation may help restore joint function in people with osteoarthritis.1 On the basis of preliminary evidence, researchers had believed that oral CS was not absorbed in humans;2 as a result, early double-blind CS research was done mostly by giving injections.3, 4 This research documented clinical benefits from CS injections. It now appears, however, that a significant amount of CS is absorbable in humans,5 though dissolving CS in water leads to better absorption than swallowing whole pills.6

Strong clinical evidence now supports the use of oral CS supplements for osteoarthritis. Many double-blind trials have shown that CS supplementation consistently reduces pain, increases joint mobility, and/or shows evidence (including X-ray changes) of healing within joints of people with osteoarthritis.7, 8, 9, 10, 11, 12, 13, 14, 15, 16, 17 Most trials have used 400 mg of CS taken two to three times per day. One trial found that taking the full daily amount (1,200 mg) at one time was as effective as taking 400 mg three times per day.18 Reduction in symptoms typically occurs within several months.

Osteoarthritis
Dose: 2.25 to 6.0 grams per dayAccording to a small double-blind trial, 2,250 mg per day of oral methylsulfonylmethane (MSM), a variant of DMSO, reduced osteoarthritis pain after six weeks.1 In another double-blind trial, supplementation with 3 grams of MSM twice a day for 12 weeks significantly reduced pain and improved overall physical functioning in patients with osteoarthritis of the knee.2

Osteoarthritis
Dose: Refer to label instructionsA few trials have evaluated glucosamine hydrochloride (GH), another form of glucosamine sulfate (GS), as a single remedy for osteoarthritis. One trial found only minor benefits from 1,500 mg per day of GH for 8 weeks in people with osteoarthritis of the knee.1 However, these people were also taking up to 4,000 mg per day of acetaminophen for pain relief, and that treatment might have masked a beneficial effect of GH. In another study, supplementing with GH (2,000 mg each morning for 12 weeks) significantly improved symptoms, compared with a placebo, in people with knee pain due to cartilage damage or osteoarthritis.2 In a four-week study from China, GH was as effective as GS in people with osteoarthritis of the knee.3 Another study found that the combination of GH and chondroitin sulfate was more effective than a placebo in people with moderate to severe knee pain from osteoarthritis, but not in those with mild pain.4 Despite the reported beneficial effects of GH, some investigators believe that the sulfate component of GS itself helps relieve osteoarthritis, and that GS would therefore be more effective than GH.5

      Comments about GNC TriFlex™ Complete Vitapak®:

      I had been having extreme pain in my hip. Was keeping me from working out and would throb at night disrupting my sleep. X-rays determined my hip joint was filled with arthritis. I started taking Tri-Flex and within a week noticed a considerable difference. Have now been on the product for 6 weeks and very rarely notice any discomfort in my hip. It has been worth every $$$.

        I have had foot and ankle problems for years. Always took off the shelf product from local pharmacy. It worked ok but not great. After two sprained ankles this winter, I was not healing fast enough. Bought this at the local GNC and in less then 10 days I was back to hiking with no pain and best range of motion in years.

        My elbow was hurting for several weeks so I went to GNC to pick up a product for joint pain. I bought it (Triflex) on Sunday and today is Wednesday and not only does my elbow feel 90% better but I have noticed my flexibility is so much better. I never thought about my back and other joint stiffness I just thought that was part of getting older. I feel as though I can give it my all when I'm working out now. I've been working out for weeks with no results as I couldn't perform all the exercises due to my flexibility and now.....Unbelievable!!!

        Tri-Flex Complete VitaPak was suggested to me by a man my age who I had hired to do some work at my house. He was on his knees alot as he worked. I asked him how he did it and he told me about Tri-Flex. I went out and got some that evening. Within 3 days my knee pain was reduced by 90%. I was looking at knee surgery very soon, now it may be years off.

            My son suggested this product to me as my thumb joints were deteriorating due to alot of use. It was amazing how quick it started working. I now take it daily and only have very slight pain, and before this, I was living in constant severe pain that made it difficult to do anything that required the use of my thumbs. Now I can do anything, anytime. Thank you Phillip!!!

            I am overweight and HAD stiffness and pain in my knees. I've only been using the product for about 10 days. I am almost pain free! I still have a little stiffness however with a few steps, that is worked out. I also have more energy, maybe becasue it doesn't hurt to walk anymore! I don't usually write this kind of review, but I love this product! I tried Insta-Flex, and that was working, but this is more complete for what I was looking for and it's also cheaper!
