NEM is a natural source of type I collagen, glucosamine, chondroitin, hyaluronic acid, and calcium, nutrients that are essential for healthy joints. It supports the production of type II collagen, the main component of cartilage, and the production of the synovial fluid that lubricates the joints. Human clinical trials show that NEM is free from the potentially serious side effects of NSAIDs and other medications conventionally used to treat joint and connective tissue conditions. NEM® Natural Eggshell Membrane is an innovative nutritional supplement that can reduce joint pain by 20% or more within 7–10 days and by an average of 73% after 30 days. In clinical trials, NEM also reduced stiffness significantly, and improved range of motion. NEM provides continued support for joint health by reducing inflammation, improving flexibility, and protecting against the deterioration of cartilage.
