The Difference between the Original Formula and Synflex®1500 Formula

In 2001, the Glucosamine world was rocked by the introduction of Synflex Original formula. You see, it was the first major internet presence for a liquid Glucosamine formula and it was an enormous success. So, you have to be asking yourself “what was so important about the original formula?” We have to take a look back to understand why Synflex 1500 was introduced.

Absorption and Bioavailability

To begin with, up to this point the Glucosamine market was saturated with pills and capsules. And, what has proven true for the years is that the ingredients you are buying vary greatly from what is stated on the labels. Unfortunately, the public is all too often buying low-grade ingredients; ingredients that are lower than stated on the label; and, in pill or capsule form, manufacturers are using “binders and fillers” that further reduce the effectiveness of their product. In brief, consumers are getting short-changed and not getting the benefits that Glucosamine was capable of delivering.


The bad news is that this kind of product still is available on the store shelves everywhere in America. It is a sad truth that is finally getting some coverage and hopefully, educated consumers become aware of this.

Pills & Capsules vs. Synflex liquid Glucosamine Pharmaceutical-quality Glucosamine

With the Synflex liquid Glucosamine formula, consumers are getting a full dose of what is stated on the label.*And, in its liquid form the bioavailability and absorption is a huge factor. Those who are purchasing the Synflex regular formula either for themselves or their family pets are also reporting amazing results.


* As well, each batch of our liquid Glucosamine 

  formulas is rigorously tested for the quality and quantity in each product.


Now, let’s look at this formula. It contained 1,250 mg. of liquid Glucosamine while the pills and capsules (or, many of them) contained 1,500 mg. of Glucosamine. (Or, that is what the label says) Yet, the Synflex formula is acting fast and the pills and capsules are not. Even at 1,250 mg.


All things being equal, there was no reason for Synflex to add a 1,500 mg. product to its lineup but for one fact. Most of the clinical trials that had reported on Glucosamine were using that amount of Glucosamine in their studies. That fact had to be balanced against the fact that the Synflex regular formula was powerful as it was. The question for the makers of Synflex was “Maybe there is a segment of the market that want a 1,500 mg. formula.”

The decision for Synflex America was an easy one

A decision was made to add Synflex 1500 to their lineup and to continue to offer their Synflex Original formula as well. Those who were ordering Synflex Original were likely to continue to order that product. Fine. And, if someone wanted to order a more powerful liquid Glucosamine formula, Synflex 1500 was there to fill the bill.

It was a smart decision. Those regular clients that had been buying Synflex Original continued to do so. And, for those who were new to the successful Synflex liquid Glucosamine formulas, there was Synflex 1500 to consider. It has been a “win-win” situation for everyone.

Different flavors for different groups

The Synflex Original formula has what might be described as a “tart, green apple flavor.” The Synflex 1500 formula has a “tangy orange flavor.” So again, a different flavor for different tastes. What is interesting is that the Synflex Original formula has been purchased by some loyal users for the entire time Synflex America, Inc. has been in business. That is, since it was first introduced into local markets in the year 2000; or, internet buyers since 2001.

You can’t argue with success

To get that kind of loyalty from consumers you have to have a pretty special product or products. That is clearly the case with both of these liquid Glucosamine formulas. And, there is another interesting twist in this story.

Top dogs (and, cats) love Synflex liquid Glucosamine

From the time it was introduced, Synflex Original formula was also sold for use with family pets. And, the same loyalty has carried on in the pet market as well. Buyers have been with the Synflex line for just as many years as the human users. Of course, Synflex was not content to just let that go either.

Synflex for Pets (Beef flavored)

It was not long before Synflex Original formula had a companion product for family pets. Synflex for Pets (beef flavored) joined the company’s already successful Synflex Original for pets. And, why would the company add this product? The answer is simple.

There is a difference in these two products

Just like the liquid Glucosamine formulas used by humans, Synflex gave pet owners a choice as well. The Synflex Original formula used for pets if of course, 1,250 mg. Synflex for Pets (beef flavored) has a 1,500 mg. content. More power is available if you feel your pet needs it.

Variety is the name of the game with family pets

Liquid Glucosamine is very easy to add to a pet’s diet. You simply sprinkle the appropriate amount on their food every day. (Of course, usage is based on body weight so smaller pets require less of the product then larger breed animals. (In fact, Synflex liquid Glucosamine has also been used on lame tigers; lions; and, other mammals. It works for any kind of an animal.) To view the chart to check dosage for family pets, go to: Usage & Side Effects. With the weight of your pet in hand, you can determine how long Synflex will last.

The reports coming back from pet owners has been just as amazing as those of human users. And, with two different flavors it offers variety for pets. If you would like to read a few of the testimonials from pet owners, go to: Success Stories for Pets.

Did Synflex America, Inc. change the Glucosamine landscape?

They certainly did. And, they have sold over 1 million bottles of their products in over 100 countries. It is probably the most compelling statement anyone could make about Synflex. In spite of all the “copycats” on the market today, Synflex liquid Glucosamine is still going strong.

One cautionary note: Do not use Synflex 1500 for family pets. Only Synflex Original Formula or Synflex for Pets (beef flavored should be used)


And, a final and important note: One company that was a “knock-off’ of Synflex claims that their Glucosamine is “superior” It may or may not be pharmaceutical quality. “Superior” it is not. That is just a false claim. And, they know it.

These kinds of claims about Glucosamine are certainly not helpful to you as a consumer. And, I am certian you would  agree. You have to wonder just how many buyers were deceived by that?


Yours in joint health.
