Joint Health - Balloons & Eggshells!

Joint Health - Balloons & Eggshells!

For many people suffering with joint health problems, thoughts of the weather turning colder and damper as we approach the Autumn and Winter months can be pretty depressing.  It’s not known exactly how the changing weather affects the joints, but it often causes significantly increased pain.  Some scientists argue it’s not the temperature that’s making a difference as many people believe, but the changes in air pressure. 

If you imagine the tissue surrounding the joints is a bit like a balloon; the theory goes that high barometric pressure that pushes against the body from the outside will keep tissues from expanding.  When barometric pressure drops however, the lower air pressure pushes less against the body, allowing the tissues to expand and putting pressure on the joint causing pain.

Whatever the cause, millions of people approach the changing weather with dread, worried about the increased pain and inflammation.  Clearly it’s not possible to change the weather, it is however possible to maximize your intake of nutrients that can help to support healthy joints.

Many people are familiar with the benefits of supplementing glucosamine and chondroitin sulphate and the positive effects they can have on supporting healthy joints.  Natural Eggshell Membrane (NEM) is less well known but arguably even more effective.  If like most people you’re unfamiliar with the benefits of natural eggshell membrane here’s some of its key features:

Natural Eggshell Membrane  (NEM)

  • Natural Eggshell Membrane is isolated from eggshells using a patented process and is composed of naturally occurring glycosaminoglycans including glucosamine, chondroitin sulphate, hyaluronic acid and collagen in a single, natural matrix.
  • NEM is composed of between 50 – 70% proteins, which includes collagen types I, V and X.
  • Doses of just 500mg of NEM daily have produced very rapid clinical effects in people with joint pain, muscle pain and osteoarthritis with evidence of significant benefit within 7-10 days of use.
