Major Products
JOINThealth Original and JOINThealth Plus Antioxidants offer a distinctive approach to joint care. They both contain NEM®, the premier ingredient derived from the thin, nutrient-rich inner membrane of the chicken eggshell. NEM® naturally contains many of the nutrients that support the integrity of joint tissue and help ameliorate the inflammatory process. It is a whole food ingredient, and has been the subject of two pilot studies and one double-blind placebo-controlled study, all revealing the same positive results. A potential mechanism of action has been elucidated, and its ability to elicit a positive effect after passage through conditions simulating the digestive process has shown that NEM®’s action is not impeded by digestion, which is a common detriment to many natural ingredients that are orally ingested. The small once-daily 500-mg dose is both convenient and effective.*

JOINThealth Plus provides all the benefits of JOINThealth Original with the addition of select botanical ingredients including Boswellia serrata, curcumin, pine bark extract and grape seed extract, which are recognized for their antioxidant and anti-inflammatory attributes.*

BONEhealth Original is an eggshell calcium product that supplies not only the benefits of whole food-sourced eggshell calcium, but also Vitamin D3 and Magnesium, critical for proper calcium absorption and utilization in the body. BONEhealth contains ESC® brand calcium from eggshells. Eggshell calcium has been shown in multiple clinical studies to increase bone density, enhanced by the natural presence of matrix proteins that enable calcium transport. The ESC® in BONEhealth is domestically sourced and poses no heavy metals concerns as is so common in many natural calcium sources.*

Recently introduced to the market is BONEhealth Plus D3 & K2. BONEhealth Plus contains all of the benefits of BONEhealth Original along with the addition of more Vitamin D3 as well as Vitamin C, Vitamin K2 and Zinc, added to optimally facilitate the mechanisms necessary for healthy bone matrix synthesis.*

What’s New?
Membrell® introduces NEW BONEhealth Plus D3 & K2. Well-known nutrients such as calcium, Magnesium and Vitamin D are key building blocks for strong bones. Research, however, has revealed additional nutrients like Vitamin C, Vitamin K and Zinc are also important to bone health. That’s the basis for NEW BONEhealth Plus D3 & K2. BONEhealth Plus features ESC® brand calcium from eggshells, which is more absorbable than other forms of calcium as a result of naturally occurring transport proteins in eggshell. ESC® supplies naturally occurring trace minerals as well, such as strontium, boron and manganese. ESC® is ultra-pure; it is nearly 50 times below the California Proposition 65 limit for heavy metals.*

BONEhealth Plus also utilizes the most effective form of Vitamin D, cholecalciferol or Vitamin D3, which is essential for calcium absorption in the gut. Magnesium is a critical enzyme co-factor in the conversion of Vitamin D3 to Calcitriol, the active form of Vitamin D in the body. The addition of Vitamin K2, or Menaquinone-7, the most bioactive form of Vitamin K, will help to maintain bone mineralization in healthy individuals.* Vitamin C and Zinc are also beneficial to help maintain bone’s structural matrix in healthy individuals.*
