It is estimated that one out of three Americans suffer from joint pains. Not only are the numbers rising, but the cases are also getting younger. Harvard Medical Research showed that more than 60 million Americans are afflicted with joint pains. It is also the top reason for disability in North America, starting with the age of 15.
Some of these joint pains are symptoms of arthritis, osteoarthritis and other joint-connective tissue disorders. Aside from pains, patients with these disorders often suffer from inflamed joints and cartilages which limit their flexibility and movements; subsequent performance of daily routines.
There are several over-the-counter drugs available for joint pains such as ibuprofen and other painkillers. However, a safer and more natural alternative surfaced after the clinical tests conducted in subjects with joint pains using a natural eggshell membrane.
What the Tests Show?
ESM Technologies, manufacturer of Natural Eggshell Membrane of NEM® conducted a study involving 67 adults who suffer from osteoarthritis of the knees. They were assigned in random to be placed in placebo group while others received a 500mg dosage of Natural Eggshell Membrane. They were then evaluated for the 10th, 30th and 60th day, and assessed the effects of NEM® for stiffness and joint pains.
The study showed a significant reduction of 30% of joint pains and 50% reduction of stiffness for subjects who received the 500mg dosage. By the end of the research, most of the subjects claim to have lesser stiffness by half.
Rheumatologist Anne Winkle, MD, Ph.D., found the quick response of the subjects to the eggshell membrane quite remarkable. This is because patients generally experience the effects of over-the-counter drugs after two to three months. But with the eggshell membrane, effects started setting in a few days.
Furthermore, the study found that compliance to eggshell membrane is higher with just one dosage. Therefore, one dosage of 500mg of eggshell membrane per day is significantly beneficial to the patients.
Natural Eggshell Membrane No Side Effects
Dr. Winkler also reported that when NEM® was assessed for safety, the results gathered no adverse side effects. This is good news for people who take over-the-counter drugs but suffer from numerous side effects such as headaches, nausea and dizziness.
Because of these positive results, the management of ESM Technologies was happy to announce that the study was published in Clinical Rheumatolgy. The National Sales Manager, Chris Haynes said that while several companies claim that their ingredients are effective for joint pains and passed clinical testing; their studies weren’t published in major medical publications. The research on NEM® has done it, was reviewed by medical professionals and was published.
Now, natural eggshell membrane has become an added safer, natural and proven effective alternative for patients suffering from joint pains.
