Eggshell Membrane Ingredient May Help With Joint Pain

As we age, the cartilage in our joints wears down and leads to joint pain, which can flare up during or after exercise. A recent study suggests that taking an eggshell membrane ingredient may help with joint health and joint pain.


Participants in the study included 60 healthy, post-menopausal women who had no prior persistent joint pain. Over the course of two weeks, they were given either 500 mg of eggshell membrane or a placebo. They performed 50 to 100 steps per leg on alternating days during that time period. CTX-II measurements were used to assess the impact of the eggshell membrane on exercise-induced cartilage turnover. Participant questionnaires were used to evaluate joint pain and stiffness.


The researchers noted improved recovery from exercise-induced joint pain in the eggshell membrane group on Day 8 of the study period, as well as improvements in stiffness on Day 4. They also noticed significantly reduced discomfort immediately following exercise on Day 7. Finally, they noted decreases in CTX-II levels. CTX-II is a measure of cartilage turnover.


Researchers from the University of Kansas conducted the study. It was published on February 19, 2018, in Clinical Interventions in Aging.


Previous studies suggest that eggshell membrane may have skin health benefits and could possibly provide relief from joint pain. If you’re looking for the benefits seen in this study, your best bet is to take a daily supplement that contains eggshell membranes.
