Can you get your active dose of shea triterpenes by eating shea oil/shea butter, or raw shea nuts instead of taking FlexNow® with 100% SheaFlex70™?
Maybe. But, you’d have to eat a lot of shea butter or shea nuts (which may not be great for your waistline) and spend a lot (which will not be good for your budget).
We produce SheaFlex70™, the active ingredient of FlexNow®, in 20 metric ton lots. We start with almost 3,000 metric tons of raw shea nuts, sourced from West Africa; from this load of raw shea nuts, we produce approximately 200 metric tons of shea oil and shea butter. The over 200 metric tons of shea oil and shea butter is carefully and repeatedly processed to produce approximately 20 metric tons of SheaFlex70™, which is the active ingredient in FlexNow® with 100% SheaFlex70™.
Shea oil and shea butter contain approximately 6% shea triterpenes, by weight. BSP Pharma’s patented material, SheaFlex70™, which is the active ingredient in FlexNow® with 100% SheaFlex70™, contains more than 70% shea triterpenes.
Eating shea butter (if you can find it in its raw and edible form, without perfumes and additives, which are not healthy for you to eat) instead of taking FlexNow® with 100% SheaFlex70™ would be more than 10 times more expensive…
