Lab One N ° 1 Active FLEX is a specially composed blend of active ingredients whose positive action targets the joint apparatus. The product is especially dedicated to all people exposed to excessive loads, i.e. sportsmen, the elderly or physical workers.
Collagen is a protein widely distributed within connective tissues. It is also highly concentrated in bone and cartilage tissue, as well as joint areas. Collagen quantitative or qualitative deficiencies may contribute to the occurrence of dysfunctions within articular structures. To support its synthesis and replenish deficiencies, the manufacturer enriched the product with hydrolyzed type II collagen, along with vitamin C that is involved in its production.
A common problem that causes pain sensations is damage to the articular cartilage, which results in rubbing two bone elements against each other during intense movements. The regeneration of articular cartilage can be supported by synergistically acting chondroitin and glucosamine.
Another reason may be a deficiency of synovial fluid, the production of which can be increased by manganese. The most important component of the said fluid is hyaluronic acid, the amount of which in synovial fluid decreases with age, hence the necessity to supplement it.
Some of the diseases that affect the articular apparatus are induced by inflammation. Ginger and turmeric extract, which additionally show antioxidant activity, may help to alleviate inflammation-related pain.
To sum up, Lab One N ° 1 Active FLEX is a supplement that, used temporarily in conditions of overload and inflammation, will comprehensively support the condition of the joints while allowing to maintain their good condition for a long time.
The preparation is intended mainly for people who are at risk of damage to the articular apparatus – competitive athletes, physically working people, or the elderly suffering from other diseases.
The supplement can also be taken by anyone who wants to support the condition of the osteoarticular system, to prevent injuries.

Chondroitin sulfate has chondroitin in its composition, belonging to the glycosaminoglycans, affecting the maintenance of joint stability and strength (building component of cartilage). Chondroitin sulfate proteins involved with the synthesis of proteoglycans. It is synthesized in the body or delivered in the foods of animal origin (e.g. containing tissue). It is used by athletes in the disciplines greatly aggravating the locomotor system with exercises, as well as in the treatment of sports injuries and joint recovery and rehabilitation after injuries, increased demand also occurs in people of advanced age. In the sports supplementation is a component of multi-component combined supplements, often containing hyaluronic acid, glucosamine and hydrolysed collagen, supporting the functioning of the locomotor system.
Dosage: 500-1500 mg per day.
Vitamin C (ascorbic acid) it is a vitamin soluble in body fluids, can be taken from foods (fruits and vegetables), or as drug derived synthetically. The largest of its resources can be found in broccoli, Brussels sprout, kale, black currant fruit and hawthorn, citrus fruits, tomatoes, Savoy cabbage, potatoes. In fact, intake of vitamin C of the food products does not limit the absorbed quantity. Vitamin C (ascorbic acid) is a potent antioxidant, it is an antitoxic, increasing the immune system due to the elimination of risk of bacterial contamination. Vitamin C prevents rupture of blood vessels, affects the blood cholesterol level. It substantially increases the absorption of iron. Inhibits the growth of cancer cells. Lowers stress levels.
Vitamin C deficiency causes abnormal development of connective tissue, cracking capillaries, abnormal calcification of bone tissue, impaired absorption of iron, scorbutus. With the lack of vitamin C, all kinds of injuries do not heal up properly. Vitamin C deficiency can be caused by smoking; each cigarette is destroying up to 100 mg of vitamin C.
Dosage: The demand is 60-80 mg daily. It does not limit the ability to consume higher doses. Some side effects may occur only with longer taking of synthetic vitamin C.
Collagen is a major component that builds connective tissue (tendons, ligaments cartilage, bone, and blood vessels) from the group of fibrous proteins (i.e. scleroprotein), representing a quarter of the content of protein in the body. It is composed of amino acids (glycine, hydroxylysine, hydroxyproline and proline). Distinguished are eight types of collagen located in different parts of the human body. The source of the acquisition is gelatin (a component of the connective tissue of animal origin). It occurs most frequently in the form of processed collagen hydrolyzate characterized by a high and a good absorbency of amino acids. Recommended in sports supplementation and physically active people, as well as during convalescence after injuries and certain diseases. Available as mono-preparation supplement or of multi-compound supplement (usually also containing chondroitin, hyaluronic acid, and ascorbic acid).
Dosage: 10-20 g per day.
Gingerols - contained in the ginger rhizome active ingredients are derivatives of phenylpropane. Anti-inflammatory, diaphoretic, warming and regulating the digestive system and digestive tract. They are an antioxidant that reduces oxidation of LDL cholesterol and the building-up of atherosclerotic plaques, lower blood pressure. They also are used in the supplements for the reduction of body fat. When combined with glucosamine, chondroitin and curcumin allow for the regeneration of joints. In the In the sports supplementation they are used for their anti-inflammatory potential, facilitating treatment and rehabilitation after injuries of motoric organs.
Dosage: 10-20 mg per day.
Hyaluronic acid (sodium hyaluronate) is a glycosaminoglycan, which do not form covalent bonds with proteins and does not contain sulfate groups. Creates so called proteoglycans aggregates absorbing water and which are responsible for the resistance of cartilage. It is one of the components responsible for the intra-articular fluid viscosity. It takes part in the regeneration of skin tissue. It is synthesized in the body providing a full daily demand. Supplementation applies to athletes exposed to overload of the locomotor system. It is a component of preparations supporting the regeneration of joints and tendons and cosmetics supporting the condition of hair, skin and nails.
Manganese, of which a natural source is chocolate, grain products with whole grain, nuts, legumes and dried cranberry, is a component of enzymes and their activator. It stimulates the properties and functionality of connective tissue and provides proper functioning of the brain. It affects the function of the pancreas, ensuring proper insulin metabolism and condition of the bone and joints. Magnesium deficiency contributes to serious disorders in synthesis of hyaluronic acid and chondroitin, reduction in insulin sensitivity of tissues, affects bone resorption. Manganese chelates are used in complexometry in chemical analysis and in medicine for the treatment of severe poisoning (antitoxin) by heavy metals, in sports supplementation, manganese impact on the functioning of the locomotor system is used. It is a component of the so-called regenerators of joints and a vitamin-mineralizing and mineralizing supplements.
