Egg- cellent way to treat joint pain
OSTEOARTHRITIS is the most common type of arthritis. As we get older, the rubbery cartilage that serves as a shock absorber to our joints becomes stiff, loses its elasticity and becomes more susceptible to damage. As the cartilage wears away, tendons and ligaments stretch, causing pain. It can occur in almost any joint in the body. Most people over 60 have some degree of osteoarthritis, but it also affects people in their 20s and 30s.
BiovaFlex Eggshell Membrane – green and natural ingredient
Avian eggshells and membranes are commonly disposed of as waste material by the liquid egg industry; however, the high content of bioactive components found within the egg membrane that has proven effective in joint support has received increasing attention and led to the production of high- quality, natural ingredients in a sustainable, environmentally sensitive and all natural manner.
People want healthy, natural alternatives and are looking for new, efficacious products for joint support. There is a growing global market for egg membrane products. It is easy to explain where egg membrane comes from and it is logical to understand how it should help and for consumers, they can actually feel it helps.
It does not come from endangered exotic animals, threatened environments or rare, nonsustainable plants. It comes from common chicken eggshells, previously considered to be a useless by- product of the US liquid egg industry. Egg membrane is removed from eggshells using Biova’s patented eco- friendly OvaPure process.
What makes BiovaFlex Eggshell Membrane special?
Due to its purity and standardisation, 450mg of BiovaFlex daily provides enough of these nutrients to be effective. Collagen is one egg membrane matrix nutrient recognised to support joint health. In a 1993 double- blind study, collagen was shown to decrease the number of swollen and tender joints in patients with arthritis during a three- month period; patients receiving a placebo showed no such improvement.
BiovaFlex contains greater than 15% collagen ( Types I, V, and X) sourced exclusively from egg membrane, which means no animals are harmed during this ingredient’s production.
Elastin is another major component of egg membrane, which allows tissues in the body to retain its shape when pinched, stretched or contracted. It’s the desmosine and isodesmosine that contribute to the rubbery properties of elastin and stimulates the body’s production to produce more. BiovaFlex eggshell membrane typically contains greater than 20% elastin.
Glycosaminoglycans also are an integral part of joint cartilage and other connective tissues – the building blocks by which chondrocytes rebuild damaged cartilage. BiovaFlex typically contains over 10% to 20% of glycosaminoglycans. Egg membrane also contains transforming growth factor, which plays a crucial role in tissue repair, cellular differentiation and immune function.
Just once a day, start seeing results in seven days
An independent study conducted in California to evaluate the supplement for safety and efficacy in the treatment of musculoskeletal pain and flexibility proved BiovaFlex helps improve joint pain as early as seven days from the start of the formulation, and gives users more flexibility, agility and strength in just six weeks.
The study revealed that subjects suffering from knee osteoarthritis who took 450mg of BiovaFlex eggshell membrane daily for six weeks had an 8.2% decrease in pain after seven days and a 16.42% decrease after two weeks. By the end of six weeks, participants reported a 37.8% increase in knee flexibility and a 20% decrease in pain.
BiovaFlex eggshell membrane is easy and convenient to consumejust once a day. The six bioactives from eggs are safe as a daily knee health supplement and suitable for diabetics and vegetarians.
