Aches and Stiffness
What would you do if aches and stiffness couldn’t stop you?

I think you’ll agree, when you can move with comfort and flexibility, it’s much easier to fully appreciate all life has to offer.

If you could move like you did in your younger years, without pain and stiffness, what would your life look like?

Would you take more walks or exercise regularly? Dive deeper into your favorite sports and hobbies? Interact with your kids or grandchildren with newfound gusto?

It’s estimated that 140 million adults in the U.S. suffer from some type of joint or connective tissue complaint that keeps them from fully enjoying what they love most. And as the population ages, that number will continue to climb sharply.

I probably don’t need to tell you your options for relief are limited. You’ve likely discovered that for yourself.

Traditional treatments typically address the symptoms and not the root cause. Any relief you get is usually temporary – simply because it doesn’t deal with what’s brewing beneath the aches and pains and stiffness.

Plus, it’s been clinically proven that most traditional treatments offer limited effectiveness. Many have significant and even potentially severe side effects, too, including risks to your heart health, gut health, and dependency issues.

There must be a better way to enjoy greater flexibility and comfort in your day-to-day activities. I’m excited to tell you there now is... more about that in just a minute...

Confirmed by Science: Why Glucosamine and Chondroitin Alone Aren’t Enough

glucosamine and chondroitin
Recent studies on glucosamine and chondroitin reveal disappointing results

For years, glucosamine and chondroitin have been the go-to support for joint care. Many adults still take one or the other, or both. It’s estimated that one in five Americans take glucosamine and one in 10 take chondroitin.

But do they work? Some of the most recent research suggests that they don’t provide all the benefits users expect.

Here’s a quick snapshot at what these studies reveal:

  • A large two-year National Institutes of Health (NIH) study, called the Glucosamine/chondroitin Arthritis Intervention Trial (GAIT) compared glucosamine and chondroitin, both alone and together, with a prescription drug or inactive placebo for mild knee pain.  
  • Overall, there was no significant improvement in those with mild pain and limited improvement in those with moderate to severe pain with the supplements.

  • A 2010 Meta-Analysis of 3,800 people with knee and hip issues found that treatment with glucosamine, chondroitin or the combination was no better than placebo.
  • A 2016 study of 164 patients with symptomatic knee concerns found that combined treatment with chondroitin and glucosamine sulfate showed no superiority over placebo for joint pain or functional use.
  • More than 20 studies looking at the effect of chondroitin on knee and hip pain have found no consistent evidence that it lessens pain.
  • Several studies have looked at whether glucosamine and chondroitin can benefit joint structure. Any improvements seen were too small to make a difference to the patients.

These results are dismal – certainly not what you want to see if you’re hoping for real change. But that’s not all... There were a few significant side effects that popped up during my review of the research...

  1. Much of the glucosamine on the market is derived from shellfish, specifically crab, lobster, and shrimp shells – a common allergen
  2. Chondroitin molecules are large, making it difficult for your body to digest. Some people experience gastrointestinal upset.
  3. Glucosamine may affect how your body handles sugar, especially if you already have blood sugar issues or insulin resistance.

Getting to the Heart of the Issue... What Happens to Your Joints and Connective Tissue As You Age

Healthy Joint needs
A healthy joint needs sufficient cartilage

So if glucosamine and chondroitin aren’t enough by themselves, what else do you need?

To help answer that question, let’s take a closer look at your joints and connective tissue...

Cartilage is a specialized form of living connective tissue that lines the bone in a healthy joint. It lends strength and flexibility to your body.

Cartilage cells produce long chain molecules called glycosaminoglycans (GAGs). When combined with water, they provide cushioning to protect your bones during movement and exercise.

Two of the most common GAGs are chondroitin sulfate and hyaluronic acid, both of which are naturally present in healthy connective tissue and cartilage. Hyaluronic acid helps cartilage maintain its flexibility, elasticity, and strength.

As you age, your joints’ cartilage can lose water and become dry and less elastic. Production of joint fluid and GAGs may also decline. Bottom line, it becomes more difficult to replace the cartilage you lose.

The good news is, cartilage can benefit from supplementation with the right nutrients – more than just glucosamine and chondroitin alone...*

Straight From the Barnyard, the Many Wonders of Eggshell Membrane for Your Joint Health

egg shell membrane
Eggshell membrane can be a godsend for joints and connective tissue

Eggshell membrane is the glossy lining left behind in the shell when you crack open an egg. It’s the protective barrier between the egg white and the mineralized eggshell.

Loaded with naturally occurring nutrients, eggshell membrane can be a godsend for your joints and surrounding tissues.*

Here are some of the components found in this precious material...

  • Collagen (Type 1) – A fibrous protein that supports cartilage and connective tissue strength and elasticity*
  • Elastin – A protein that supports skin, cartilage, cardiovascular and spinal health, giving tissue its elastic tension and ability to resume its shape after stretching*
  • Glycosaminoglycans (GAGs) – Includes glucosamine, chondroitin, and hyaluronic acid, all structural components of connective tissue, interstitial fluids, and skeletal structure*
  • Transforming growth factor-b – A protein that plays a crucial role in cellular differentiation and immune function*
  • Desmosine and isodesmosine – Two little-known amino acids responsible for elastin’s elastic or “rubbery” properties*

Eggshell membrane, with all these valuable components working together, help:

  • Support a healthy range of motion*
  • Deliver nutrients to your cartilage and the soft tissue surrounding your joints*
  • Support a healthy inflammatory response*

So how can you get this unique glossy material, you may be wondering?

Introducing NEM®... Our Eco-Friendly Eggshell Membrane Matrix From the Midwestern Heartland

Straight from real, freshly cracked eggs, Natural Eggshell Membrane, or NEM® brand eggshell membrane matrix offers the important building blocks collagen, elastin, GAGs and other proteins to support the stability and flexibility of your joints and to help maintain your joint cartilage.*

NEM® brand eggshell membrane is an eco-friendly product. And it has a fascinating story behind it...

Watching truckload after truckload full of discarded shells departing from a local Midwestern egg-breaking facility, NEM ’s founder wondered how he could help save 600,000 tons of eggshells from being discarded into American landfills each year.

Made by Mother Nature, this waste had to have a better purpose...

That drove him to digging into the research and discovering eggshell membrane had been used for many years in Japan for countless health benefits, including joint health.*

Truly a eureka moment, NEM ’s founder launched his company’s mission to transform this wasted resource into a powerful, naturally sourced joint health supplement.

That was a few years ago... Today, this forward-thinking company is preventing thousands of tons of eggshells from becoming environmental waste, and instead, they’re contributing to consumer wellness.

And the process they use to manufacture NEM is no less environmentally friendly...

Their FDA inspected, NSF-certified GMP facilities leave no detrimental ecological footprint. Using a gentle patented process, the eggshells and their attached membranes are separated from each other.

The isolated membrane is then partially hydrolyzed and dry-blended to produce 100 percent pure NEM powder.

Made completely in the U.S.A., every lot of NEM undergoes testing to verify it is low in toxic heavy metals and free from pathogenic bacteria.

Plus, it’s certified Kosher and Halal and free of any genetically engineered material!

3 Ways NEM® Eggshell Membrane May Benefit Your Joint and Cartilage Health

Joint Stiffness
With NEM®, you may notice less joint stiffness in as little as 4 days

Earlier I talked about a triple-action effect. Let me explain...

NEM brand eggshell membrane contains three times the support for your joints, and provides it in as little as four to 11 days!*

A small, single daily dose of only 500 mg provides fast-acting joint support and helps support healthy joints three ways – against pain, stiffness and cartilage breakdown.*

Because NEM® naturally contains many of the same key nutrients found in healthy joint cartilage including glycosaminoglycans (chondroitin and hyaluronic acid), collagen, and peptides, it offers the potential for:

  • Joint comfort support*
  • Reducing joint aches and pains*
  • A reduction of exercise-induced joint pain and stiffness*
  • Reduced joint stiffness in a quick four days*
  • Joint flexibility support*
  • Reducing cartilage breakdown from normal wear and tear by providing needed building blocks for healthy joint function*
  • Fast and continued results for overall joint health*

Let’s take a closer look at what some of the studies say...

What the Research Says About NEM® Eggshell Membrane

postmenopausal women
A study with postmenopausal women showed one daily 500 mg dose of NEM rapidly reduced exercise-induced joint aches and pains*

You don’t have to just take my word for it. Clinical studies have been done on NEM® to show how these potential benefits can occur in real people!

A 2017 double-blind, placebo-controlled study with a group of 60 healthy post-menopausal women showed that a daily dose of 500 mg of NEM® rapidly improved recovery from exercise-induced joint aches and pains by Day 8, immediate stiffness by Day 7, and recovery stiffness by Day 4.*

This is the first dietary ingredient that has been shown to reduce exercise-induced pain in truly healthy subjects!*

But that’s not all... Studies show NEM promotes a healthy, balanced inflammatory response, too.*

Inflammation is your body’s way of isolating injured tissue to allow self-healing to take place. However, if inflammation continues beyond the natural healing process, it can lead to joint tissue damage. A balanced inflammatory response is essential for supporting your joint and connective tissue health.

Multiple studies show that NEM contains compounds that support a healthy normal inflammatory response.* One study of 44 individuals with knee and hip concerns supplementing with 500 mg of NEM showed:

  • More than 59 percent of patients reported NEM as good or very good after 60 days of use*
  • More 75 percent of patients had moderate or significant improvements after 60 days, according to physicians*
  • No serious adverse effects were reported during the study

In conclusion, this study showed NEM significantly reduced pain, both rapidly (10 days) and continuously (60 days), making it a safe and effective option.*

If my Joint Formula only contained this winning eggshell membrane matrix, I think you would agree it would be a “no-brainer” decision to try it. However, my team didn’t stop there. We added three more joint health-supporting ingredients!

Feel Better Fast With Super-Antioxidant Astaxanthin*

joint mobility
Studies show astaxanthin supports joint mobility after exercise*

Astaxanthin – the carotenoid pigment that gives flamingos and shrimp their rosy pink hue – is a fat-soluble antioxidant with a unique molecular structure. It is similar in structure to beta-carotene, but much more effective at scavenging destructive free radicals. 

In fact, studies show astaxanthin may be 10 times more effective than beta-carotene in its ability to protect against free radical attack, and 550 times more effective than vitamin E!*

This super antioxidant is now thought to be the most powerful antioxidant found in nature. And because it is soluble in lipids, it crosses protective barriers and embeds itself into and helps protect mitochondrial and cellular membranes.*

Free radicals can cause tissue and joint damage. Compared to a normal heathy joint, an inflamed joint contains significantly increased levels of harmful free radicals.

Astaxanthin has been found to be especially helpful for preventing and slowing down free radical damage to joints. It is unique among carotenoids because it traps free radicals at both ends of the molecule.*  

It’s also very effective at quenching a molecule called singlet oxygen, a harmful reactive oxygen species formed through normal biological processes.

Singlet oxygen possesses a high amount of excess energy that must be released to keep it from damaging other cells. Astaxanthin absorbs this energy and dissipates it as heat, thereby returning the singlet oxygen to a grounded state.

Astaxanthin works diligently to support a healthy inflammatory response, which can result in fewer aches and pains and greater comfort.* Studies show it helps:

  • Support grip strength among tennis players*
  • Support joint health and mobility after exercise*
  • Support joint health and quicker recovery times for elite athletes after intense training and exercise*

A Gift From One of Earth’s Oldest Life Forms… A Fine Source of Astaxanthin for My Joint Formula

wild salmon
You would have to eat wild salmon every day to get the astaxanthin that comes in my Joint Formula

Microalgae is one of earth’s oldest life forms. It has survived many, many years through the harshest of conditions.

Its genes may actually hold a secret for our own survival…

The first building block and source of life itself, algae provides one of the finest gifts for health: astaxanthin.*

As a survival mechanism, the microalgae Haematococcus pluvialis produces astaxanthin when its water supply dries up to protect itself from ultraviolet radiation and lack of nutrition.

You can get astaxanthin two ways – from the microalgae that produces it, or the sea creatures that feed upon the algae, such as salmon, krill and shrimp.

The astaxanthin used for my Joint Formula is supplied by one of the premier suppliers of high-quality astaxanthin extracted from the microalgae Haematococcus pluvialis.

Most manufacturers use open ponds where the algae is exposed to the elements and can come into contact with agricultural runoff and other environmental toxins. Our manufacturer grows the microalgae in glass tubes so it’s protected from contamination plus it avoids the use of PVC and plasticizers.

Using state-of-the-art Supercritical Carbon Dioxide (CO2) technology, a standardized high quality astaxanthin oleoresin is extracted from the Haematococcus pluvialis biomass:

  • Contains 95 percent total carotenoids
  • Tested for purity with less than 0.5 ppm heavy metals
  • Uses no genetically engineered substances*

Source matters when it comes to astaxanthin… Petrochemical-derived astaxanthin has begun to hit the market and, understandably, it costs less than astaxanthin from microalgae. Because of this, you can’t be too careful when shopping for astaxanthin.

Highly Prized During the Peak of the Roman and Indian Civilizations,
This Ayurvedic Herb Can Help Maintain Steady Blood Flow to Your Joints*

Boswellia serrata tree
The Boswellia serrata tree contains a gummy resin that supports joint health*

Boswellia serrata – or Indian frankincense – is one of the most-valued Ayurvedic herbs, referred to in its renowned ancient texts for its many uses.*

Not to be confused with the frankincense – or boswellia carterii – which is used to make the essential oil, the resin made from the boswellia serrata extract was highly prized during the peak of the Roman and Indian civilizations.

This gum resin is extracted from the medium-to-large-sized boswellia serrata tree that grows in the dry mountainous regions of India, Northern Africa and the Middle East.

Indian frankincense contains four major pentacyclic triterpenic acids, or more commonly known as boswellic acids.

Studies show these boswellic acids promote a healthy inflammatory response in your body, thus helping to control tissue damage from free radicals.*

Working on the cellular and molecular levels, Indian frankincense supports:

  • The health of your body's connective tissues*
  • Healthy joint function*
  • The normal flexibility of your body*
  • A normal and comfortable range of motion*
  • Healthy normal blood flow to your joints*

With regular use, Indian frankincense can help maintain steady blood flow to your joints and support your joint tissues’ ability to boost flexibility and strength.*

Last but Not Least… Clinically Proven, Proprietary Lower Molecular Weight Hyaluronic Acid for Your Joint Comfort

hyaluronic acid
Hyaluronic acid is found in your cartilage, connective tissue, and synovial fluid that bathes your joints

Hyaluronic Acid (HA) is a polysaccharide found in nearly every cell in your body. It’s a key component of your cartilage and connective tissue and synovial fluid that’s secreted by the synovial membrane surrounding your joints.

HA’s main function is to reduce friction in your joints to help them move smoothly. It does this by providing lubrication and nutrients and removing wastes.*

Synovial fluid, which contains hyaluronic acid, acts as a lubricant, nutrient carrier and shock absorber to protect your joints and bones during normal movement.

Your cartilage is immersed in, and fed by the synovial fluid. Without HA, nutrients can’t move into these cells… and waste can’t be moved out.

Your body produces hyaluronic acid, and you can get it from foods like grass fed meats and bone broth from these meats. Vitamin C- and magnesium-rich foods play critical roles in the synthesis of HA.

However, as you grow older, your body’s ability to produce hyaluronic acid declines. If you’re not allergic to eggs or poultry, supplemental hyaluronic acid can help provide valuable support for cushioning your joints.*

The hyaluronic acid we’ve added to our Joint Formula is a patented medium-chain hyaluronic acid that has a lower molecular weight than traditional HA.

Studies show this form of highly bioactive hyaluronic acid is more bioavailable to your connective tissue and works well with astaxanthin for joint health.*

This special low-density hyaluronic acid:

  • Supports the production of synovial fluids to lubricate your points*
  • Supports your immune function*
  • Supports a normal, balanced inflammatory response*

In clinical studies by the manufacturer, this unique blend dramatically reduced knee joint discomfort and was shown to have a cumulative beneficial effect with time on optimizing joint comfort.*
