AstroFlav Joint Plus

AstroFlav continues to rock 2023 with their newest release Joint Plus. Launching this formula less than a month after launching their newest reformulated collagen with added in puremidine, AstroFlav has made a big splash in the general health and wellness category. 

AstroFlav Joint Plus Supplement Facts

A good joint health supplement can be the key difference in any training regimen. Finding a brand and a formula that can help reduce inflammation and discomfort may take your training to another level, not to mention just make you feel better in your daily life.

AstroFlav Joint Plus is a well thought out formula that may help reduce your joint pain and swelling.

MicroActive Curcumin – 500mg

AstroFlav Joint Plus SFPWith Curcumin being the active ingredient found in turmeric, it helps provide a very powerful anti-inflammatory and powerful antioxidant for helping control joint inflammation pains. The thing when it comes to the use of Curcumin is when taken orally the absorbtion is very low as many of the remaining active curcuminoids are quickly excreted. AstroFlav has taken this into account when they specifically chose MicroActive Curcumin to be in Joint Plus. MicroActive  Curcumin is a sustained release, water dispersible formula. In trials this ingredient has been found to stay around in the body longer than those who took the same amount of a non-time released curcumin. In result finding this ingredient to be 10x more absorbable, better delivery of important curcuminoids, and having a 12-hour sustained release. In Joint Plus,  AstroFalv has added the exact same dosing as the trials had run at 500mg.

Quercefit® Quercetin Phytosome™ – 250mg 

Quercefit is a branded version of Quercetin with improved bioavailability. Quercetin has been shown in studies, both in-vitro and in-vito, to have antioxidant activity, through the direct inactivation of free radicals, inhibition of lipid peroxidation and inhibition of free radicals producing enzymes.

Quercefit may improve joint health by modulation activity on the most important inflammatory cascades, leveling down NF-kB activation, controlling COX and LOX activation and cytokine production.

The recommended dosage per day is 250mg of Quercefit® Quercetin Phytosome™.

Bromelain- 175mg

Bromelain, which can be found naturally in pineapple, is known for its analgesic (pain relief properties). Bromelain has been shown in clinicial studies to be a provien anti-inflammatory. These clinical studies on Bromelain for joint pain dates back to 1964 when studied in arthritis and osteoarthritic patients.

Typical dosage of Bromelain starts at 200mg per day for a positive impact. Early studies did look at a 60mg per day dosage with positive outcomes, but studies show the higher the dosage, within reason, the better the results.

ApresFlex (Boswellia Serrata) – 100mg

As many joint pain-relief ingredients may take longer to build up in the body for effectiveness, AstroFlav has included a fast acting pain relief ingredient ApresFlex. In several clinical trials with use of just 100mg per day, participants experienced improved joint comfort in just five days. With continued and consistent usage of this ingredient daily, many experienced even better pain relief over 30 and 90-days. Joint Plus has included this ingredient at the clinical trial dosing set at 100mg to help with fast acting joint pain relief.

Ginger Root Extract- 100mg

As many people want a quick solution to help make their joints feel better, many forget about looking at how to preserve joint health as wealth. Something you may not “feel” as much right away, something your future self will thank you for later. AstroFlav does this by adding in Ginger Root Extract.

Ginger Root has been found to help reduce cartilage breakdown and improve healthy joint function. Ginger does this by protecting cartilage cells and prevent the breakdown of collagen, which is the most abundant protein in the body, and the most essential for maintaining healthy joints. With suggest use of ginger being 250mg multiple times a day, Joint Plus will give you 100mg of Ginger Root extract, however this is paired with several absorption ingredients and paired with Black Ginger extract.

Black Ginger Extract- 100mg

Black Ginger Extract has been proven to help relieve joint pain and discomfort. In a randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled, multicenter, parallel-group, 6-week study with 261 patients suffering from osteoarthritis of the knee, Black Ginger Extract was shown to have a statistically significant effect on reducing symptoms of osteoarthritis of the knee.

Black Ginger Extract has been used in clinical trials 170 mg to 1 g per day.

Type II Collagen – 60mg

Collagen has been gaining a lot of popularity for it’s potential benefits in reduction of joint pain, specifically Type II Collagen. Multiple studies on Type II Collagen have been conducted regarding joint swelling and discomfort. Although more studies are needed, there seems to potentially be some promise. 

Four trials tested collagen against a placebo and one tested it against methotrexate. The trials for involved between 60 and 503 participants with rheumatoid arthritis. Only one of the four showed improvement versus the placebo group.

There may be benefits to collagen supplementation on joint discomfort and pain.

AstraGin – 50mg

AstraGin is an ingredient from Nuliv Science that can help increase the absorption of the active ingredients in Joint Plus. The 50mg dosage is what we expect to see when using AstraGin.

Tetrahydrocurcumin – 25mg

Tetrahydrocurcumin is a metabolite of Curcumin and much like Curcumin, has been shown to prevent and reduce osteoarthritis symptoms. Tetrahydrocurcumin and curcumin improved osteoarthritis symptoms by influencing pro and anti-inflammatory factors in articular cartilage.

Bioperine – 10mg

Bioperine, or Black Pepper Extract, like AstraGin, may help improve the absorption of active ingredients in Joint Plus.

Final Takeaway

Many brands put out a standard joint formula with the same ingredients. We're not saying that is bad, because some of these ingredients are popular for a reason: they work.

AstroFlav Joint Plus uses some very unique ingredients designed around the anti-inflammatory properties, and the reduction of oxidative stress to help improve overall performance through improved anti-inflammatory markers. The brand uses proven ingredients like Curcumin, but also adds new innovative ingredients like ApresFlex and Quercefit to give us a more "advanced" formula and approach to joint health.
