BALTIMORE, March 15, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Approximately 140 million adults in the U.S. suffer from some form of joint and connective tissue (JCT) disorder with arthritis being the most prevalent. While analgesics and nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) have been used to treat symptoms of JCT disorders, they can have detrimental side effects such as gastric, cardiac and dependency issues. Recently, those affected by JCT disorders are turning to alternative measures, such as dietary supplements, to naturally treat their symptoms. The latest breakthrough on the market, Egcel 5 Joint Health with NEM®, introduces eggshell membrane as an all-natural ingredient that effectively improves joint and connective tissue health.
Eggshell membrane is a naturally occurring source of the bioactive compounds found in joints and connective tissues. The thin layer of super-strong connective tissue is beneath every eggshell, though not part of the edible egg, and protects the egg inside the shell. By separating eggshell membrane from eggshells, the membrane can be partially hydrolyzed using a proprietary process and dry-blended to produce 100% pure Natural Eggshell Membrane (NEM®) for consumption. NEM® is an innovative dietary ingredient with all the essentials for maintaining healthy joints and connective tissues. It contains a high concentration of protein and moderate quantities of:
- Glucosamine, part of joint fluid and cushioning, can help to increase the uptake of sulfur by the cartilage tissue
- Chondroitin Sulfate, part of cartilage tissue, helps support the structure of joints. Chondroitin holds water and encourages nutrient flow around joints
- Hyaluronic acid, an amino acid that supports lubrication in the joint tissues
- Collagen, a protein responsible for skin strength and elasticity as well as maintaining blood vessel strength
The effects of NEM® on knees, hips, elbows, neck, shoulders and the lower back were studied in single- and double-arm trials, evaluating range of motion (ROM) and related ROM-associated pain. In the single-arm trial, approximately one-third of the patients experienced a 30% or greater reduction in pain at seven days while one-third of the patients experienced a reduction in pain of 50% or greater at 30 days. In a double-arm trial, two-thirds of the patients experienced a 50% or greater reduction in pain at 30 days, while half of the patients reported being pain-free at 30 days, as well as experiencing a 50% improvement in flexibility.
A safe and effective treatment for pain and inflexibility, Egcel 5 Joint Health with NEM® combines the powerful treatment of NEM® with Boswellin, an all-natural anti-inflammatory that helps provide the maximum pain relieve possible. "It's no wonder the NEM® has gained such popularity in the treatment of JCT disorders: NEM® contains all the natural ingredients found in our joints," stated CEO Paul Intlekofer. "The simple act of taking a single pill replenishes those vital nutrients making Egcel 5 Joint Health with NEM® more effective than anything on the market today."
Unlike many dietary supplements, Egcel 5 Joint Health with NEM® is a once-daily dose shown to be nearly five times more clinically effective than glucosamine or chondroitin supplements. Egcel 5 Joint Health with NEM® is the first in a series of NEM® products planned for the company. Egcel 5 Joint Health with NEM® is available in 30-capsule containers for a introductory retail price of $26.21. For more information visit www.egcel.com.
