In order to reduce the pain and inflammation of osteoarthritis in particular, this new addition to Genuine Health's line of natural egg membrane (NEM) based products enhances that natural substance which nourishes and supports joints and reduces joint pain with two other natural ingredients to help reduce inflammation and increase the space in the joints. While the NEM, which is derived from egg shells, supplies the nutrients the joints need to maintain their flexibility and structure (including glucosamine, chondroitin sulfate, collagen, elastin and other proteins), Bromelain, an enzyme found in pineapples, provides great anti-inflammatory properties, and AvoVida (avocado/soy unsaponifiables, made from whole avocados and cold-pressed soy), has been shown to be able to increase space in the joints which gets lost due to degenerative changes in those with osteoarthritis.
The combination of ingredients in Genuine Health's Clinical Strength Fast Arthritis Pain Relief+, if taken daily, can provide pain relief within as little as 5 days (while Glucosamine alone tends to take 5 times longer), and help reduce inflammation, build cartilage, and increase joint mobility and the range of motion, when taken on an on-going basis.
