Flexiseq Max Strength Gel Information
What is Flexiseq Max Strength Gel and what is it used for?
Flexiseq Max Strength Osteo is a drug-free gel, containing Sequessome Technology, that offers targeted pain relief and lubrication for sore, stiff joints caused by osteoarthritis allowing you to move more freely and easily.
How does Flexiseq Gel work?
Flexiseq Max Strength Gel uses Sequessome Technology to help target pain inside the joints by lubricating damaged, worn-out cartilage and reducing friction for people affected by osteoarthritis.
Sequessome Technology is unique to Flexiseq products, containing oily droplets that are both flexible and full of moisture allowing them to quickly be absorbed through the skin and into the joints where they form a lubricating barrier over the cartilage where it helps to reduce pain and stiffness, helps you to become more mobile.
How quickly does Flexiseq Max Strength Gel work?
When used as directed Flexiseq Max Strength Osteo Gel will start to work within 10 minutes. If you do not allow this product to fully dry you may impair the functionality of it and notice a reduced effect.
Once you have applied Flexiseq Gel to the affected joint, it needs to be left to dry for 10 minutes before covering. If the gel takes less than 10 minutes to dry you have likely not applied enough and should apply a small amount more.
