Eggshell membrane is a natural substance that forms between the white of the egg and its shell. If you’ve ever de-shelled a hard-boiled egg, you’ll probably have noticed this clear film. But one thing you mightn’t have realised is just what a nutritional powerhouse it is.

A natural source of joint-supporting nutrients like glucosamine, chondroitin sulphate, hyaluronic acid, collagen and glycoprotein, eggshell membrane is an entirely unique biological matrix.

Little wonder, therefore, that eggshell membrane has been studied for its positive effects on various markers of health. Indeed, clinical research highlights the benefits of eggshell membrane for arthritis and the joint pain which is synonymous with the disease.

In this blog post, we intend to take a closer look at eggshell membrane and assess its usefulness as a dietary aid.
