Arthritis affects an estimated one in five people in the UK and although considered a disease of old age, it can affect all ages. Almost everyone realises that to fully appreciate all that life has to offer, you require healthy and flexible joints.
One of the most promising discoveries in the battle against joint and arthritic pain is Natural Egg Shell Membrane (NEM). NEM is the thin membrane that is in between the egg shell and egg white and it contains proteins and amino acids that may help to repair the cartilage network in between the bones. It is the degradation of this cartilage that causes the release of acids, such as uric acid, resulting in pain and stiffness that arthritis sufferers’ experience.
In addition to its long term repair properties, NEM is also a powerful anti-inflammatory helping to alleviate pain quickly and often within days.
Several studies indicate that supplementing with 500mg of Natural Egg Shell Membrane for eight weeks has a positive impact on joint health with most patients reporting benefits of pain relief and joint flexibility in as early as ten days after beginning to take NEM.
Natural Eggshell Membrane is available in a proprietary supplement called Superior Joints. This all-in-one quality supplement also contains herbal extracts and nutrients that help to enhance circulation, cushion the joints and bones and protect joints from free radical damage.
As mentioned above, when joint tissues degrade, acidic compounds are produced that encourage the further degradation of the joints themselves which is why arthritis is termed a degenerative disease. If not addressed, the bones tissues can fuse together resulting in a large loss of mobility.
In order to remove uric acid and other acidic compounds, I recommend the use of Tart Cherry, Nettle and Turmeric. This supplement helps to dissolve uric acid and other acidic compounds and additionally helps to eliminate them quickly from the joints before they crystallise and cause pain and destruction.
