The egg is a phenomenal nutritive resource. We eat it for its protein but did you realise that the membrane itself, so often discarded, is an incredible source of nutrients for our joints and cartilage? Swanson Ultra 100% Natural Eggshell Membrane boosts your intake of fibrous proteins to help maintain strong joints, free from aches and pains.
Our relationship with the egg is longstanding and well known. We scramble it, fry it, poach it and sometimes drink it raw by way of a delicious source of protein and vitamins.
The membrane of the egg is the thin film which sits between the shell and the egg itself. Quite often, we discard the membrane when we eat eggs, considering it unpleasant. However, recent studies have shown that this membrane is actually full of useful components and proteins for our joints.
Swanson Ultra 100% Natural Eggshell Membrane is a clever way of harnessing the power of that part of the egg and utilising it for our own benefit.
The egg membrane contains several fibrous proteins like collagen which are needed by our connective tissues and joints. They also contain glucosamine and chondroitin which are both helpful in the fight against joint deterioration and the maintenance of synaptic fluid between the joints.
Unfortunately, as you age, the inevitable wear and tear on your body takes its toll. Add to this your natural glucosamine levels dropping and this is one of the reasons that joint aches and pains become more prominent in later life. A healthy diet and appropriate exercise can help but with the inevitability of age comes the prospect of creakier joints.
This unfavourable actuality means that as we live longer, joint and cartilage related complaints are on the rise. In the US last year roughly 140m people are known to be suffering from joint or connective tissue disorders such as:
