How can eggshell membranes support joint health
In the video linked to this article, Dr. Joseph Evans explains how eggshell membranes can help maintain joint health.
Doctor Dr. Joseph Evans, pharmacology and Novus research fellow stratum nutrition (A division of Novus international), believes that using eggshell membranes is a unique approach to treating discomfort in joints. He claims that it is a holistic approach. The membrane itself has a number of different components which support new cartilage formation. It supplies a number of the building blocks for this purpose. Therefore, the product can be used independently because it is rich in substances that promote new cartilage formation.
The membranes are the tissue on the inside of the eggshell that is very hard to take off when you open a boiled egg. It is almost invisible but very strong. Dr. Evans says that these properties of the membrane are not incidental. The membrane has a lot of different proteins, including collagen and elastane which give flexibility to the cartilage and the joints. These are the components that promote the formation of components of the joint. When we consume the membranes, we can expect that they will influence the formation and repairing of our cartilages and joints too because the proteins the membrane has are very similar to those in the human body.
Dr. Joseph Evans says that the membranes can be taken in a supplement form. He refers to one of the studies conducted on the matter in which it was proven that the dosage of 500 mg taken once a day during 30 days has an amazing healing effect on the joints and is absolutely safe for the human body.
Interestingly, though it has been already proven that the proteins from the egg membranes can promote the production of the substances we need for our bodies, they can also provide an anti-inflammatory effect which roots are still studied. According to Dr. Evans, any treatment you would receive for your joints ideally would do these two functions, promote the formation of cartilage and have an anti-inflammatory effect. This is what the egg membranes are able to do without the use of other unnatural medications. Moreover, with the reduction of inflammation, the pain syndrome also fades.
It is amazing how we can benefit from purely natural products which otherwise would go to waste. Fortunately, nowadays you can find dietary supplements based on eggshell membranes. If you cannot find them at your local drugstores, you can always look for them online.
