Ibunex and Gluconex
is a topical formula that includes Ibuprofen with Glucosamine Sulfate, Chondroitin Sulfate, MSM and Bromelain. It should be considered a first offense during the acute phase for muscle and joint application. Ibunex is applied locally to the target area of concern. Ibunex can be applied before or after health care professional treatment as well as for everyday use at home.
avoids problems associated with oral medicines. Ibunex entirely avoids the digestive tract and eliminates the negative side effects associated with oral medicines. Because it is applied directly to the target site, you do not have to wait for distant metabolic processes to occur and system wide transportation to the target site.
is the first step for addressing soft tissue and joints. After the acute phase, you may benefit from combining or switching the Ibunex regimen with Gluconex, the second step that promotes healthy long-term joint maintenance.
is a topically applied formula for joint maintenance with the key ingredients of Glucosamine Sulfate, Chondroitin Sulfate, MSM and Bromelain. Because Gluconex is applied topically it benefits from avoiding the difficult metabolic issues associated with oral forms of supplementation.
What does each of the ingredients do?
blocks the production of prostaglandins by inhibiting a substance in the body called cyclo-oxygenase (COX). By inhibiting prostaglandins, ibuprofen reduces the messengers involved in the inflammatory response.
is a substance found naturally in the body. It is a naturally occurring amino sugar synthesized in the body from L-glutamine and glucose, and is believed to play a role in cartilage formation and repair.
is a substance found naturally in the body. Chondroitin sulfate is part of a large protein molecule (proteoglycan) that gives cartilage elasticity. It does this by attracting and holding fluid within the cartilaginous tissue. This helps keep the cartilage healthy by carrying nutrients to the cartilage and protecting the cartilage from wear and tear. The cartilage in the joints of the human body has no blood vessels, so it must receive its nutrients from tissue fluid.
is a compound that contains sulfur. Flexible tissues like connective tissue and cartilage contain proteins with flexible sulfur bonds. Like glucosamine sulfate, this sulfur compound helps in the building of articular cartilage and production of synovial fluid. The latest independent double-blind study found the combination of glucosamine sulfate and MSM greatly superior to either supplement when used individually.
is a naturally occurring organic proteolytic enzyme extracted from pineapple that interferes with the arachidonic acid cascade, which is responsible for the production of the pro-inflammatory prostaglandins. Rather than blocking the arachidonic acid cascade at the enzyme cyclo-oxygenase, Bromelain may selectively decrease thromboxane generation and change the ratio of thromboxane/prostacyclin (PGI2) in favor of prostacyclin.
What is Ibunex?
is a unique, topically applied formula. One measured pump (0.2g) contains approximately 10mg Ibuprofen plus 4mg Glucosamine, 4mg Chondroitin, 5mg MSM and 5mg Bromelain, formulated with our proprietary Liposomal Dermal Deliver Matrixâ„¢ (LDDM).
Ibunex, a topical cream, contains Ibuprofen, MSM, Bromelain, Chondroitin Sulfate, and Glucosamine Sulfate. The synergistic affects of this unique formula target the area of concern, avoiding negative side effects including stomach upset associated with over-the-counter medications taken orally.
What is Gluconex?
is a unique, topically applied supplementation formula. One measured pump (0.2g) contains 10mg Glucosamine plus 5mg Chondroitin, 5mg, MSM and 5mg Bromelain formulated with our proprietary Liposomal Dermal Deliver Matrixâ„¢ (LDDM).
Gluconex addresses chronic joint disorders and inflammation by administering Glucosamine Sulfate, Chondroitin Sulfate, MSM and Bromelain directly to the targeted site.
Why both Ibunex and Gluconex?
Inflammation has 2 phases, acute and chronic. While the acute phase is relatively nondestructive as compared to the chronic stage, it is the precursor to tissue degeneration from chronic inflammation. This chronic stage is the period in which long term damage is sustained within the joint from the degenerative effects of ongoing inflammation.
Ibunex is used 1st during the acute stage (up to 14 days) to target the area of concern and begin introduction of Glucosamine and Chondroitin. Gluconex is then used as a long term maintenance supplementation to help supply the area with ample doses of glucosamine and chondroitin for joint health, along with bromelain for inflammation, and MSM for joint cartilage. This is an excellent long term health regimen that facilitates critical joint supplementation.
How many pumps are there per bottle of Ibunex and Gluconex?
Both Ibunex and Gluconex have 270 pumps per bottle.
Can this be used on children?
It is indicated for adults and children 12 years of age and older.
Can this be used on women who are pregnant?
No, it is not recommended for women who are pregnant, or during lactation.
Does this have any effect on menstrual cycle?
No, a female may use these products at any time during her cycle.
Ibunex and Gluconex are safe for use by individuals with type 1 and type 2 diabetes.
Allergic reactions to shellfish concerns:
Ibunex and Gluconex are safe for use by individuals with shellfish related allergies.
Glucosamine is made from Chitin, a carbohydrate. Allergies to shellfish are a result of a protein found in the shellfish, not the carbohydrate. Some people who are allergic to shellfish have reported a reaction to Glucosamine supplements, but this is a result of an impure synthesized form that has traces of proteins in it. Our Glucosamine is free of all shellfish proteins.

Unless otherwise prescribed by a health professional, apply 1 to 2 pumps to target area, 3 to 4 pumps to larger areas. Repeat up to 2 times daily, allowing 8-12 hours between applications.

The bottles say “Fragrance Free” – what is the slight smell I detect?
The Bromelain ingredient is a naturally occurring organic enzyme extracted from pineapple. Bromelain has a creamy color and slight smell which is natural and indicates the enzyme is working.
