Eggshell Membrane Reduces Osteoarthritis Pain
Natural eggshell membrane (NEM) supplements reduce knee and hip pain and stiffness from osteoarthritis, according to a study of 44 people in Europe. Symptoms began improving within 10 days of starting to take a daily supplement containing 500 mg of NEM, with greater benefits after 60 days. In the study, published in the Journal of Arthritis, physicians reported that 75 percent of those taking the supplement experienced moderate to significant improvement. NEM, found in a variety of joint-health supplements, naturally contains protein, glucosamine, chondroitin, collagen, and hyaluronic acid, all of which are known to enhance joint structure.
