How a doctor desperate to help his own daughter uncovered the biggest modern-day secret to soothing joints
It was more than two decades ago when a man by the name of Dr. Eugene Moore set out to find something… anything… that could stop his daughter’s terrible suffering.
She was born with a rare joint condition that was so serious, by her late 20s she was reduced to life in a wheelchair.
Nothing seemed to comfort her agony. And he felt helpless and heartbroken.
So Dr. Moore did what any good father would do. He devoted every waking moment to researching unusual joint conditions and began experimenting with concoctions that might work. Still nothing.
So he worked longer, harder. He scoured scientific reports, studies, even books on old ancient remedies in order to relieve his daughter’s aches and restore the mobility she was robbed of.
Dr. Moore knew there had to be a way…
And he would find it.
One particular night as fate would have it, Dr. Moore was reading through another stack of reports, when the pile toppled to the floor. As he went down to pick them up, something caught his eye! The top of one report said “Is collagen the new miracle joint compound?”
This could be the breakthrough he needed …
He frantically scanned the study, which showed some very intriguing results. Desperate for answers, he decided to start trying collagen on his daughter, and to their surprise, initial effects were powerful… remarkable even!
Through a little trial and error, Dr. Moore eventually found that if he cooked the collagen, it instantly became useless. So he developed a recipe for a native or undenatured form of the cartilage that was most effective for delivering powerful, amazing relief, as well as better mobility and flexibility.
What he probably didn’t realize at the time, is that this extraordinary discovery would have a HUGE impact on joint sufferers everywhere. It meant that glucosamine was no longer the only option to help alleviate soreness and discomfort.
In fact, Dr. Moore’s miracle ingredient worked even better! A clinical study shows a patented form of undenatured collagen called UC-II® went toe to toe with glucosamine plus chondroitin and was twice as powerful and effective for joints.
Thanks to all his hard work, doctors nowadays know collagen helps joints.
One doctor in particular wanted to take this decades-old breakthrough and pick up where Dr. Moore left off—to build the ultimate joint relief formula.
Dr. David Katz, Director and Co-Founder of the Yale Prevention Research Center, used the abundance of prior research to determine the exact amounts of UC-II collagen to start with.
Now that he had power to his formula, he focused on speed of relief. For that Dr. Katz investigated another intriguing component, a new patent-pending form of Boswellia extract called AprèsFlex®.
Studies show that subjects with achy knees WERE SHOCKED by how fast AprèsFlex works—significant relief was reported in 1 week!
The clinical amounts used in these studies are now available in 1 small capsule a day.
Dr. Katz took the clinical-grade amounts used in these studies and packed them all into a small capsule that can be taken once daily. He truly believes there’s nothing else like it.
By now you might be wondering where you can find this savior for sufferers. Well, it’s called Instaflex Advanced, and it’s a lot easier to get than you might think.
Although it’s carried at some of the biggest retailers nationwide, this is your only chance to try a complimentary 14-day sample of this amazing product.
Your joints might not feel flexible right now, but when you try Instaflex Advanced…
WOW, DOES IT WORK!
I am very impressed with the product and I have told several people about it. I have been using a cane for a couple of years. This past Saturday, I did not need it all the time. I am still using with steps. I am anxious to see more improvement as I continue to use Instaflex Advanced.
My knees haven’t hurt since I’ve had it into my system. I have tried everything that comes along for them. This seems to be doing the job. Now to get rid of the stiffness since I wasn’t doing a lot of walking my legs got stiff but we are working it out. Thanks

Billy GrahamWilliam (Billy) F. Graham, Jr.
Evangelist and Chairman of the Board
Evangelist Billy Graham took Christ literally when He said in Mark 16:15, “Go ye into all the world and preach the Gospel to every creature.”
Mr. Graham has preached the Gospel to more people in live audiences than anyone else in history—nearly 215 million people in more than 185 countries and territories—through various meetings, including Mission World and Global Mission. Hundreds of millions more have been reached through television, video, film, and webcasts.
Since the 1949 Los Angeles Crusade vaulted Mr. Graham into the public eye, he has led hundreds of thousands of individuals to make personal decisions to live for Christ, which is the main thrust of his ministry.
Born November 7, 1918, four days before the Armistice ended World War I, Mr. Graham was reared on a dairy farm in Charlotte, N.C. Growing up during the Depression, he learned the value of hard work on the family farm, but he also found time to spend many hours in the hayloft reading books on a wide variety of subjects.
In the fall of 1934, at age 15, Mr. Graham made a personal commitment to Christ through the ministry of Mordecai Ham, a traveling evangelist, who visited Charlotte for a series of revival meetings.
Ordained in 1939 by Peniel Baptist Church in Palatka, Fla. (a church in the Southern Baptist Convention), Mr. Graham received a solid foundation in the Scriptures at Florida Bible Institute (now Trinity College of Florida). In 1943 he graduated from Wheaton College in Illinois and married fellow student Ruth McCue Bell, daughter of a missionary surgeon, who spent the first 17 years of her life in China.
After graduating from college, Mr. Graham pastored The Village Church of Western Springs (now Western Springs Baptist Church) in Western Springs, Ill., before joining Youth for Christ, an organization founded for ministry to youth and servicemen during World War II. He preached throughout the United States and in Europe in the immediate post war era, emerging as a rising young evangelist.
The Los Angeles Crusade in 1949 launched Mr. Graham into international prominence. Scheduled for three weeks, the meetings were extended to more than eight weeks, with overflow crowds filling a tent erected downtown each night.
Many of his subsequent early Crusades were similarly extended, including one in London that lasted 12 weeks, and a New York City Crusade in Madison Square Garden in 1957 that ran nightly for 16 weeks.
Today, Mr. Graham and his ministry are known around the globe. He has preached in remote African villages and in the heart of New York City, and those to whom he has ministered have ranged from heads of state to the simple living bushmen of Australia and the wandering tribes of Africa and the Middle East. Beginning in 1977, Mr. Graham was given the opportunity to conduct preaching missions in virtually every country of the former Eastern bloc, including the former Soviet Union.
In 2013, Mr. Graham had the vision for proclaiming the Gospel across the United States and Canada, prompting the implementation of My Hope with Billy Graham, a grassroots evangelism outreach combining personal relationships with the power of modern media. Based upon a pioneering outreach that had already resulted in millions of decisions for Christ around the world since 2002, churches and individual Christians across the two countries were encouraged and equipped to pray and reach out to friends, family and neighbors using a powerful new film from BGEA. Approaching 95 years of age, Mr. Graham recorded a new video message, called “The Cross,” for the project, which was made available for use in homes and churches as a tool for sharing the Gospel.
Mr. Graham founded the Billy Graham Evangelistic Association (BGEA) in 1950, headquartered in Minneapolis, Minn., until relocating to Charlotte, N.C., in 2003. Through BGEA’s ministry, Mr. Graham started:
the weekly “Hour of Decision” radio program, which was heard around the world for more than 60 years;
television programs that are still broadcast today on national Christian networks.
a syndicated newspaper column, “My Answer,” which is carried by newspapers both nationally and internationally; and
“Decision” magazine, the official publication of the Association, which has a circulation of more than 425,000, making it one of the most widely circulated religious periodicals in the world;
Mr. Graham has written 33 books, many of which have become top sellers. His autobiography “Just As I Am,” published in 1997, achieved a “triple crown,” appearing simultaneously on the three top best-seller lists in one week. In it, Mr. Graham reflects on his life, and decades of ministry around the world. From humble beginnings as the son of a dairy farmer in North Carolina, he shares how his unwavering faith in Christ formed and shaped his career.
Mr. Graham’s most recent works include “Where I Am: Heaven, Eternity, and Our Life Beyond” (2015), “The Reason for My Hope: Salvation” (2013), “The Heaven Answer Book” (2012), “Nearing Home: Life, Faith and Finishing Well” (2011) and “Storm Warning” (2010). “Nearing Home” was selected as the 2012 Christian Book of the Year by the Evangelical Christian Publishers Association. Of his other books, “Approaching Hoofbeats: The Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse” (1983) was listed for several weeks on The New York Times best seller list; “How to Be Born Again” (1977) had the largest first printing in publishing history at the time with 800,000 copies; “Angels: God’s Secret Agents” (1975) sold one million copies within 90 days; and “The Jesus Generation” (1971) sold 200,000 copies in the first two weeks.
Mr. Graham’s counsel has been sought by presidents, and his appeal in both the secular and religious arenas is evidenced by the wide range of groups that have honored him, including numerous honorary doctorates from many institutions in the U. S. and abroad.
Recognitions include the Ronald Reagan Presidential Foundation Freedom Award (2000) for contributions to the cause of freedom; the Congressional Gold Medal (1996); the Templeton Foundation Prize for Progress in Religion (1982); and the Big Brother Award for his work on behalf of the welfare of children (1966). In 1964 he received the Speaker of the Year Award and was cited by the George Washington Carver Memorial Institute for his contributions to race relations. He was recognized by the Anti-Defamation League of the B’nai B’rith in 1969 and the National Conference of Christians and Jews in 1971 for his efforts to foster a better understanding among all faiths. In December 2001 he was presented with an honorary knighthood, Honorary Knight Commander of the Order of the British Empire (KBE), for his international contribution to civic and religious life over 60 years.
Mr. Graham is regularly listed by the Gallup organization as one of the “Ten Most Admired Men in the World,” whom it described as the dominant figure in that poll since 1948—making an unparalleled 59th appearance and 53rd consecutive appearance in 2015. He has also appeared on the covers of Time, Newsweek, Life, U.S. News and World Report, Parade and numerous other magazines and has been the subject of many newspaper and magazine feature articles and books.
Mr. Graham lost his wife of nearly 64 years, Ruth Bell Graham, in June of 2007. Together they had three daughters, two sons, 19 grandchildren and numerous great grandchildren. Mr. Graham resides in their home in the mountains of North Carolina.
