Eggshell Membrane Supplement Associated With Knee Comfort | NatureCity


As we age, the cartilage in the knee joint may gradually wear away. According to a new study, a water-soluble chicken eggshell membrane hydrolysate dietary supplement may help improve walking ability and distance and reduce stiffness in people with knee discomfort.





Participants included 88 adults with knee discomfort. Half of them took 450 mg of eggshell membrane supplement and half took a placebo daily for 12 weeks. The researchers used the Western Ontario McMaster Osteoarthritis Index (WOMAC), the six-minute walk test (6MWT), and the knee range of motion (ROM) testing to assess knee function and mobility.





Participants in the supplement group had significant improvements in the WOMAC score, stiffness, and the 6MWT after 5 days. These improvements continued to be seen during the 12 weeks of the study period. Participants with the worst knee function and mobility at baseline saw the biggest improvements.





The study was conducted by researchers from Central Michigan University and Nova Southeastern University. It was published online ahead of print on August 15, 2019 in the Journal of Medicinal Food.
