Flexium, a new dietary supplement for arthritis

Patients are seeing ads for Flexium, a new dietary supplement for arthritis...from Boehringer Ingelheim Pharmaceuticals.

There are two versions. Flexium Joint Comfort contains SAMe... Flexium Joint Comfort & Cartilage Renewal contains SAMe and glucosamine.
