The Healthy Secret Hiding in your Refrigerator

Have you ever noticed the thin film between the shell and the egg white when you crack a hard-boiled egg? This is the eggshell membrane and it is loaded with joint-cushioning and flexibility enhancing vitamins, amino acids and proteins. While you may want to run to the kitchen to hard boil all of your eggs right now and peel away this membrane, this may not be a realistic method for getting the amount that you need.

It is estimated that 140 million adults in the United States alone suffer from some sort of joint pain. (ie, arthritis, gout, neck or back pain, etc.) A few different studies, using patients with pain and stiffness in their knees, hips, elbows, neck, shoulders and lower back, have proven the effectiveness of Natural Eggshell Membrane (NEM®). The results of these studies demonstrate that NEM® can help to promote normal joint comfort and flexibility, usually within 7-10 days.*

The Results:

“Supplementation with NEM produced a significant treatment response at seven days for flexibility and at 30 days for general pain, flexibility and ROM-associated pain.”1 “ROM” stands for “Range-of-Motion”.

“Natural Eggshell Membrane (NEM®) is a possible new effective and safe therapeutic option for the treatment of pain and inflexibility associated with joint and connective tissue (JCT) disorders. Supplementation with NEM 500 mg taken once daily, significantly reduced pain, both rapidly (seven days) and continuously (30 days).”1

“The proprietary study, by Dr. John Berardi, followed 60 adults through a workout program designed to challenge their irritated joint. Participants in the eggshell membrane group reported significantly less joint pain post-exercise following eggshell membrane supplementation when compared to those in the placebo group.”2

Myrrh: A Medicinal Marvel

For centuries, Myrrh has been revered for its healing properties. Historically used in India, China, the middle East and probably best known as one of the gifts given to the baby Jesus by the Three Wise Men, Myrrh has been used to make incense, to provide therapeutic health benefits and as an anointing oil in spiritual ceremonies.

The sap which this medicinal plant, Commiphora myrrha, produces contains a potent resin which is used today in topical ointments, massage oils, in fume baths and cosmetic products. It possesses an aromatic fragrance that is said to impart health and vigor.

Introducing Magi Myrrh™ Massage Lotion

The magic of this ancient herb, when applied topically, works by alleviating pain and swelling, revitalizing circulation and relaxing stiff, aching muscles and joints.Magi Myrrh Massage Lotion

Magi Myrrh™ Massage Lotion is blended with nutrient-rich, organic Olive-Oil and moisturizing Lanolin and penetrates deeply to restore ease of movement. This unique blend of ingredients helps to strengthen and relax muscles, as well as relieve cramping.

Muscle and joint stiffness are often relieved when there is more blood flowing through an area. Myrrh and organic Olive Oil are stimulating to the superficial circulation of the body, providing nourishment to the capillaries, aiding blood flow and improving motion. By increasing the blood flow to the obscure corners of your body, more nutrients and oxygen can reach parts of the body to assist function and improve mobility. These two substances together make an effective combination when rubbed into the skin.

Vitamin D-3: The Sunshine Vitamin

Why do I need Vitamin D-3?

Doctors found many years ago that children who were exposed to sunlight, which allows the body to produce Vitamin D-3, or those who took a Cod Liver Oil supplement, naturally containing Vitamin D-3, were less likely to suffer from a bone condition called Rickets.

Since then, years of research has shown that Vitamin D-3 benefits the body in more ways than one. Vitamin D-3 is crucial for the metabolism of Calcium and Phosphorous, for the support of healthy bones and teeth, for providing added protection for immune challenges, for reinforcing healthy brain function, enhancing mood and cognitive function and much more.

Where does Vitamin D-3 come from?

Vitamin D-3 is known as the “Sunshine Vitamin” because it is produced by the body during exposure to the sun’s ultraviolet rays. When sunlight hits the skin it synthesizes to form D-3, which then circulates into the blood stream. It may also be found in limited amounts in certain foods, however, it may be difficult to get enough to supplement the body’s requirements from these sources alone.

Different skin tones absorb different amounts of vitamin D-3. Lighter, fair skinned people will need less sun exposure to absorb a sufficient amount whereas darker skinned people may require as much as double the amount of sun exposure. This can present a problem during the colder months of the year as well as during the work week when sun exposure is often limited. Because absorption of vitamin D-3 differs among individuals, regular testing will reveal your body’s needs. It may be helpful to ask your health care practitioner to test for vitamin D-3 levels: once at the end of winter and again at the end of summer to determine how much vitamin D-3 your body manufactures through summer sun exposure, and how much is needed during the winter months to maintain healthy levels.

New High Potency Vitamin D-3 Softgels

As more people avoid sun exposure and because vitamin D is not abundant in food, High Potency Vitamin D-3 Softgelssupplementation becomes essential to ensure that your body receives an adequate supply. Nature’s Blessing’s New High Potency Vitamin D-3 supplies this key nutrient in a higher potency, absorbable liquid softgel. Take 1 softgel every two days to supply the body with 5,000 IU of vitamin D-3. Optimizing your vitamin D levels can give your immune system a boost, improve muscle function, and support bone, brain and cardiovascular health. Experience the many benefits of vitamin D-3 and keep your system running strong.

What is Glucosamine?

Glucosamine is a naturally occurring biological compound found in the body. It is vital for Vegetarian Glucosamine with MSM, 120 VCapsbuilding cartilage, the rubbery, spongy tissue that enables joints to flex and move smoothly and easily. It is the joint “shock-absorber”.  Because natural Glucosamine levels drop with age, the cartilage surrounding the joints can begin to deteriorate causing joint pain and stiffness.

Supplementing with Glucosamine may help restore joint comfort thereby enhancing flexibility and mobility. Glucosamine is an essential building block to some of the main components of cartilage. These components act to trap and bind water into tissues that keep your cartilage hydrated and healthy.

Typically, Glucosamine is derived from shellfish. Our vegetarian formula supplies GreenGrown® Glucosamine HCl, which is derived from a Non-GMO corn source, which makes this supplement safe for those with allergies to shellfish or those who are maintaining a vegetarian or vegan diet.

Why add MSM to Glucosamine?

MSM, known as Methylsulfonymethane, is a naturally occurring sulfur compound found in almost every cell of the body. It is an important building block for collagen formation and for anti-oxidant production. It has been researched for its anti-inflammatory and pain-relieving benefits for muscles and tendons.

MSM may be consumed as a supplement or through food products such as fruits, vegetables, poultry, fish, eggs, meats and milks. This nutraceutical has been found to ease joint stiffness, swelling and pain, especially when combined with Glucosamine.

Add another tool to your arsenal for joint relief.  The synergistic properties of this formula may work more effectively to get you moving faster. Give your joints the nutrients they need and enjoy a healthy, active lifestyle!

What is Chondroitin?

Also naturally occurring in the body, Chondroitin is believed to help cartilage absorb water and nutrients to keep it hydrated, spongy and healthy.

Once the cartilage starts to deteriorate, symptoms such as pain, stiffness, and inflammation appear, indicating signs of arthritis. Support for joint health becomes imperative to continue an active lifestyle.

Nature’s Blessing Glucosamine and Chondroitin Capsules work to restore mobility and pain-free Glucosamine and Chondroitin Capsulesmovement. Chondroitin slows cartilage deterioration which allows the Glucosamine to work on rebuilding tissues. Support your joint health before the first sign of pain and keep yourself moving!

Glucosamine and Chondroitin are compounds that are naturally found in the body, especially in the cartilage found around the joints. These compounds are essential in keeping the cartilage elastic, healthy and strong. As the body ages, its natural levels of Glucosamine and Chondroitin tend to drop, causing the cushioning benefit of the joint cartilage to break down, which often leads to pain and swelling. This can impact one’s daily activities and make moving a struggle. One of the best ways to keep yourself agile is by supplementing with Glucosamine and Chondroitin.
