Together, TriComfort Essentials® and Joint & Bone Essentials® deliver complete joint and bone health and joint relief, as they:

  • Help alleviate joint discomfort starting in as
    little as 5 days
  • Significantly reduce your pain after 30 days
  • Support healthy joints and healthy joint structure
  • Help support bone structure and strength
  • Help support physical mobility and function

If you’re active you know how important it is to relieve your discomfort quickly, so you can stay active. What’s more, you know support of your joints and bones is equally important for the long term. That’s why this supplement duo is Whitaker Nutrition’s top recommendation for alleviating joint discomfort quickly—starting in as little as 5 days—and supporting overall joint and bone health.

TriComfort Essentials: Get more with less

Many joint supplements on the market today require multiple pills to provide relief. But with TriComfort Essentials you get joint relief fast with just one highly concentrated pill. What’s more, TriComfort Essentials starts working its "magic" in as little as 5 days, providing well-deserved comfort and relief while promoting full range of motion.

3 clinically studied joint supporters reduce inflammatory markers and discomfort, improve mobility

  • AprèsFlex® (100 mg): In clinical studies, AprèsFlex® was shown to be a true superstar bringing significant relief and improvement in daily functions starting in as little as 5 days. And after 30 days, a substantial improvement was seen in joint discomfort, stiffness, and functional ability.1
    • In a double-blind, randomized, placebo-controlled study, participants with joint aches took 100 mg of AprèsFlex or a placebo daily for 30 days. Three well-regarded assessment scales to measure discomfort, stiffness, and physical function were used—and in all three, AprèsFlex was superior.
    • In a measure of intensity of discomfort, AprèsFlex showed a better improvement than the placebo starting in just 5 days.
    • In a measure of daily functions hindered by discomfort, AprèsFlex helped to alleviate the discomfort starting in just 5 days. And after 30 days, those taking AprèsFlex reported an even greater improvement in joint discomfort, stiffness, and functional ability.
  • UC-II® (40 mg): UC-II is an all-natural, patented collagen standardized to undenatured type II collagen. Undenatured Type II Collagen triggers the deactivation of the inflammatory process in the joints to help curb the enzymes that contributes to collagen breakdown.

Single-sourced and manufactured in the USA, UC-II collagen is extracted using a low-heat, non-enzymatic process that preserves its natural form UC-II (40 mg), helps block collagen breakdown, alleviates joint pain particularly after exercise, improves flexibility and mobility—and is clinically shown to be even more effective than glucosamine and chondroitin for reducing joint pain and exercise-induced joint discomfort, as measured by three standard pain measurement indicators: WOMAC, VAS, and LFI.2

Glucosamine is useful for promoting joint health, which is why it continues to be an important ingredient in Joint & Bone Essentials™. However, when it comes to joint discomfort and stiffness, research shows that UCII can provide even more relief.

  • Meriva® (200 mg): This powerful turmeric extract is more bioavailable than ordinary curcumin, helps promote a normal inflammatory response, and provides antioxidants that reduce free radicals for healthy joints. A native to India and Southeast Asia, turmeric has been used traditionally for thousands of years. And turmeric, with curcumin as the active component, has been used as an inflammatory inhibitor to alleviate joint discomfort.

Joint & Bone Essentials: 5 researched nutrients support joint and bone health

Joint & Bone Essentials not only helps support healthy joints but it also supports bone structure for more comprehensive joint and bone support. Joint & Bone Essentials includes these cutting edge nutrients that make it so effective for so many customers.

Glucosamine Sulfate (1.5 g): Studies indicate that glucosamine supports the creation of healthy joint cartilage and structures by helping to support normal joint space. Glucosamine also helps relieve normal age-related joint aches and pains due to normal wear and tear.4

NEM® natural eggshell membrane (500 mg): NEM supports healthy joint comfort and function. Research also suggests it may help alleviate joint aches and pains due to normal wear and tear. In a four-week study, adults took either 500 mg NEM or a placebo while following an exercise routine, rating their exercise induced pain immediately after and then one day after exercising. The NEM group had a significant decrease in post-exercise induced joint pain, compared to participants in the placebo group.5

FruiteX-B® (222 mg): FruiteX-B contains a unique form of boron. Boron intake may help support calcium absorption and help increase vitamin D levels in deficient populations. Calcium and vitamin D help support bone health.

MBP® Milk Protein (40 mg): Provides even greater health benefits as it has the ability to promote the body’s natural mechanism for supporting optimal bone structure and normal bone breakdown and formation.

Our bodies continuously break down and build bone. The key is to keep this process in balance. That’s why we made sure to add the powerful, clinically studied MBP to Joint & Bone Essentials—because healthy joints start with strong, healthy bones.

Vitamin D3 (2,000 IU): Vitamin D is needed for strong bones and balance. That’s why 2,000 IU vitamin D was added to Joint & Bone Essentials, because it plays a crucial role in maintaining bone structure and strength by aiding in the absorption of calcium and reducing the loss of calcium in the urine. You may already be getting calcium from your multinutrient or a standalone supplement, which is great news, especially when combined with the vitamin D in Joint & Bone Essentials. In addition, vitamin D and calcium are critical nutrients for muscle strength and balance.

Taken together, TriComfort Essentials and Joint & Bone Essentials are the perfect combination for joint relief and for the bone benefits you need for truly strong, healthy joints.

Science and Quality

Clinically Researched Natural Pain Relievers Deliver Fast, Effective Relief Starting in as Little as 5 Days


Après Flex is an enriched boswellia serrata extract, originating from a deciduous tree native to India whose use dates back to the ancient Ayurvedic medicine texts written 3,000 years ago. The standard form of boswellia, however, is poorly absorbed by your bloodstream because it contains a glycoprotein that acts as a barrier. That means it takes longer to work. AprèsFlex is the next generation of Boswellia serrata extract—working faster and more effectively than the standard form.

The science behind AprèsFlex

What’s more, the AprèsFlex extract is enriched with an additional blend of natural compounds from the boswellia tree that inhibit the glycoprotein and significantly improve absorption. In laboratory studies, AprèsFlex showed 51.8% greater absorption of AKBA, which is an active compound that inhibits the inflammatory pathways, compared to another popular boswellia product.


UC-II is a clinically proven, patented form of undenatured type II collagen that helps support joint health. Unlike most of the commercially available collagen supplements which are denatured or hydrolysed, UC-II is manufactured through a patented, low-temperature, non-enzymatic manufacturing process that preserves the natural levels of undenatured type II collagen as well as its biological activity. UC-II works in the small intestine through a process called oral tolerization to aid in the health of type II collagen in the joints.

The science behind UC-II

UC-II can help alleviate joint discomfort during and after exercise as well as improve flexibility and mobility in physically active healthy individuals. In a randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled, pilot study, healthy subjects experiencing joint discomfort upon strenuous exercise took either 40 mg of UC-II (the amount in TriComfort Essentials) or placebo while continuing their normal diet and exercise regimens. Subjects were tested at 30-day intervals from baseline to 120 days and the results were impressive1:

  • Significant improvement in knee extension at 90 (compared to baseline) and 120 days (compared to baseline and placebo).
  • The minimum time to onset of joint discomfort (while exercising) was significantly better than baseline at day 90 and day 120. No significant changes in placebo.
  • Maximum time to offset joint discomfort (after exercising) was significantly faster at day 60, 90, and 120 compared to baseline.

While osteoclasts are just as important as osteoblasts in the process of bone remodeling, when the activity of osteoclasts is in excess, this can lead to bone loss.
