Pain-free with eggshell membrane? How does it work?

But how does that benefit humans? Scientists found that the composition of the eggshell membrane corresponds almost 100% to the ingredients of human cartilage. This makes it ideal for supplying nutrients to our cartilage.

Eggshell membrane contains a purely natural combination of exactly the nutrients that are important for maintaining the health of cartilage and joints:

  • Collagen (type I, V and X)
  • Chondroitin sulfate
  • Glucosamine
  • Hyaluronic acid
  • Dermatan sulfate
  • Keratan sulfate
  • Lysozyme
  • Desmosine and isodesmosine (amino acids for elastin)
  • Methionine and cysteine (sulphur containing amino acids)
  • Beta growth factors


While endogenous collagen improves the overall structure of cartilage, glucosamine protects the cartilage from pressure loads like an airbag. In addition, glucosamine stimulates the production of the gel-like synovial fluid that ensures smooth movement. Chondroitin promotes the elasticity of the cartilage. The substance formed by chondroblasts is an important component of cartilage tissue and contributes to its resistance to compression.

Studies have shown that even 50 times the daily dose (equivalent dose of 500 mg/day) of eggshell membrane has been shown to be safe and in no way interferes with the function of other supplements or medications.
