For centuries, traditional Ayurvedic preparations have used the power of turmeric and tamarind seed. Now, GNC has formulated a powerful, unique botanical blend that combines these ingredients, along with AprèsFlex® made from boswellia serrata, into just two small pills a day to give you GNC TamaFlex™ Fast Acting.

TamaFlex Fast Acting represents a breakthrough in joint health and comfort proven to help you feel better and deliver results in just five days!*

  • TamaFlex Fast Acting provides 7x more joint comfort in one month*

  • TamaFlex Fast Acting provides 5x improvement in joint stiffness* and increased flexibility^*

  • Non-GMO, vegetarian-friendly, shellfish-free and formulated without artificial colors or flavors


^In a randomized, double blinded trial, 90 healthy adults took 125 mg of TamaFlex or placebo twice daily for 90 days. Those taking TamaFlex had improved (i) joint comfort, stiffness and function (WOMAC), (ii) walking speed and distance, (iii) use of stairs, and (iv) range of motion in the joint. Improvements were seen as early as 2 weeks for all outcomes but joint function (as early as 1 month).

Not really sold on this product.
I've taken this product for the last few weeks and have not noticed any benefits. I will finish my bottle(One month supply) and update my results. Hopefully I'll have better news.

surprising WOW
Woah okay I got this in my pro box and i was like "okay yeah I have it so I might as well take it" I work a very labor intensive job and my back starts hurting and my ankle ache around noon. After taking Tamaflex my back never hurts during work and my knees feel comfortable. WOULD RECOMMEND!

Pleasantly surprised!
I have had elbow issues for years. Acupuncture, stim therapy and naproxen and only Tamaflex has helped without any side effects or stomach irritation. Absolutely worth it! Will be using this from now on.

Life changing
?? I have a labrel hip tear and overuse in my shoulder. I noticed it helped with my hip in three days. I can only imagine what will happen in a month. I will be buying this for now on I make fresh turmeric tonics daily and didn’t get the relief I am getting now from this

Works for my shoulder not my knees
It works for the parts of the body that is hurting due to over use. But my knee with mod/adv arthritis no help.

Works for me
I used Instaflex advanced for two years, very expensive.
I tried this 2 weeks ago and personally think it works much better The cost is about 30 % of Instaflex and I think it’s a superior product.

A shopper on Mar 11, 2019
BEST ANSWER: I took it regularly until the bottle was empty, and I experienced no improvement whatsoever in the pain and inflammation in my knee. So, as to how fast it works, I can't say, because it didn't work at all for me.
