So, What is Natural Eggshell Membrane?

by Amanda Mills


We're not exaggerating when we say there are hundreds of horse joint supplements on the market.  Most claim to be the best, the most palatable, the fastest acting, the cheapest.  But how do you choose the right one?  Which product can you trust?

The truth is, with equine joint supplements you get what you pay for. But, that said, the most expensive supplement is not always the best either.  

Many horse joint supplements claim to be research-supported, but are only able to cite research on their ingredient list, not the finished product. The ingredients found in that equine supplement may come from different sources or be included in different amounts or, sometimes, not included at all.  Those that do have research on the finished formulation usually used higher concentrations during the study period than what is in the commercially available formulation.  

There are only so many variations of equine joint supplements you can make before you're simply spinning your wheels to come up with a new gimmick.  

Enter Natural Eggshell Membrane (NEM).  

Essentially, this is the thin, clear film you see on the inside of an eggshell and its packed with the good joint health ingredients you find in other equine supplements (glucosamine, chondroitin, collagen, hyaluronic acid), naturally. Additionally, because eggs are one of the most bioavailable sources of protein out there, NEM is absorbed much quicker and more completely than any other source of these joint health ingredients.  

The research on NEM is both plentiful and impressive. Studies have been done to evaluate its effectiveness in humans, camels, cranes, rats, horses and dogs, just to name a few.  Each study has proven NEM effective in relieving swelling, pain and stiffness within 7–10 days, improving mobility and flexibility and allowing these results to be maintained throughout supplementation.  

Because of this, NEM is now one of the most widely recommended supplements for humans battling rheumatoid arthritis, osteoarthritis and other structural or chronic pain conditions.  

Steadfast Equine and Steadfast Canine are the only products on the market that offer NEM in a joint health supplement for animals. Both have received U.S. Patents for their unique formulation and efficacy in the management of joint disease in dogs and horses.  

In fact, the most recent NEM study proved its effectiveness in managing chronic pain associated with joint disease in dogs!

So, when you're making the decision of which joint supplement to start your animal on, make it wisely.  Don't rush. Don't let price be the only thing that guides you because, in then end, you may get more bang-for-your-buck elsewhere. Don't be jaded by the "big name brand."  Do your research, consult your vet and read the reviews from consumers like you!
