    Default Fact Or Myth: Is Natural Eggshell Membrane An Effective Remedy For Joint Or Connectiv

    An estimated 140 million American adults battle with some type of joint or connective tissue disorder such as arthritis, lupus, fibromyalgia, or back and neck pain. While supplements like glucosomine and chondrotin offer relief to some, many people fail to experience any benefit and instead succumb to side effects like gastrointestinal disturbances. Not to mention, these supplements are made from shellfish so those with allergies must look elsewhere for relief. Turns out there’s a natural and side-effect-free remedy that may just be superior to traditional joint supplements. Natural eggshell membrane (NEM) is naturally stocked with glucosamine, chondrotin, and a host of other nutrients shown to reduce joint pain and stiffness and help repair the cartilage network between bones.

    I am not saying it won't work for some people but I did try this for several months a few years ago and it didn't help.

    Very interesting! I wonder how you use it. I eat a lot of organic eggs, but of course the membrane gets tossed with the shells (which are very dirty until I wash them, which I only do as I use them.)

    Same question. Is there a supplement or does one actually try to peel the membrane off the shell?

    It comes in supplement form. I think recommended dose is 500mg daily and I'm pretty sure that I tried it as often as 3X/day. I don't know how many eggs that would equate to. It's been a few years and was about the same time I was going through Lyme so it may be worth trying again. I am also not thrilled at the fact the supplements come from factory farmed eggs.

    I agree, Mellow. I wouldn't want to use a supplement from factory eggs any more than I'd eat the eggs themselves.
