Sustainable Collagen that’s Kinder to the Environment
Scientists have found that the eggshell membrane is a completely natural source of many nutrients, such as hyaluronic acid, glucosamine, chondroitin, collagen and amino acids that play a vital role in providing relief from joint pain, stiffness and connective tissue disorders.
Sustainable recycled natural eggshell membrane has been clinically proven to be as effective as bovine collagen. The eggshell membrane we produce is characterized by its high purity and by the large amount of bioactive substances present in it. This main characteristic has shown faster health benefits than other collagens.
The management of large amounts of eggshell waste annually produced in the world is problematic as generally this material is only disposed of at landfills with odour production and microbial growth. On the contrary, significant environmental and economic advantages could be obtained transforming this bio-waste into new value-added products, such as eggshell membrane collagen suitable for vegetarians. Other sources of collagen include bovine, porcine and marine.
Collagen plays a dominant role maintaining the structural integrity of different organs and tissues, providing flexibility, strength and elasticity among others. Collagen is mostly found in cartilage, bones, tendons, ligaments, skin, blood vessels and teeth. Collagen production in the human body is not always the same, there are different diseases that can cause significant decreases in the collagen production, but even naturally, aging itself causes endogenous collagen production reduction. To minimize the lack of collagen and to balance the collagen loss in the human body, many healthcare professionals and experts insist on the need to use food supplements to improve and boost new endogenous collagen production in order to avoid loss of bone mass, cartilage degradation, joint tenderness, skin wrinkles, among other symptoms.
