NEW YORK, June 18, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Osteo Bi-Flex®, the leading joint health supplement market leader, has been named the "No.1 Pharmacist Recommended" bone and joint health strengthener by pharmacists surveyed by U.S. News and World Report and Pharmacy Times. Osteo Bi-Flex® received more than 60 percent of pharmacist votes in the bone and joint strengthener category, out-ranking the nearest competitor by more than 37 percent. Pharmacy Times and U.S. News surveyed thousands of pharmacists nationwide to secure their recommendations on more than 168 over-the-counter product categories.
Osteo Bi-Flex® products are formulated with important ingredients like glucosamine and chondroitin which are a natural part of normal cartilage. The Osteo Bi-Flex® brand also offers Joint Shield™ and UC-II® collagen. Joint Shield™ exclusively features 5-LOXIN™ Advanced, a concentrated extract of Boswellia serrata herb which helps with occasional joint flare-ups.* UC-II® collagen is a natural source of collagen that has been shown to improve joint comfort.*
"On behalf of the Osteo Bi-Flex® team, we are honored by the recognition of pharmacists nationwide for our commitment to joint health," said Osteo Bi-Flex® senior brand manager Albert So. "Our team of researchers, scientists and formulators are relentlessly committed to providing consumers with the highest quality joint health supplements and we believe we can help improve their quality of life. This number one ranking in Pharmacy Times and U.S. News recognized the effectiveness of Osteo Bi-Flex® products, our commitment to innovation and our work to educate consumers about ways to improve their joint health."
A survey1 commissioned last year by Osteo Bi-Flex® found that nearly 7 in 10 Americans over 34 years of age experience occasional joint stiffness or other concerns. The survey also found that 62 percent of Gen Xers – now in their late 30s and 40s – are concerned about their joints.
"Earlier this year, Osteo Bi-Flex® announced the launch of its national education campaign to bring awareness to joint health and encourage consumers of all ages to start paying attention to their joints," said So. "Osteo Bi-Flex®'s portfolio offers a range of products to fit every life stage and style, making it easier for anyone to commit to joint health supplementation to support function and mobility*."
