When you’re standing in front of a shelf, looking at two products, it can be tough to tell which product is going to work better than the other.
If you’re looking at pain relief products, you might find, for example, that some are made from natural eggshell membrane (also known as NEM) and then there is BiovaFlex®, a patented eggshell membrane used in our line of pain relief products.
So what’s the difference? While both are made from eggshell membrane, both help to relieve pain and inflammation (and are natural pain relief alternatives to NSAIDs), BiovaFlex® is more effective than NEM. And when you’re in pain, you definitely want the more effective ingredient.
Here’s what makes BiovaFlex® better:
BiovaFlex is richer in protein
Thanks to a unique extraction process, BiovaFlex® retains the natural ratios of joint nutrients and proteins found in egg membranes. As a result, BiovaFlex® is RICHER in proteins that help to reduce inflammation and nourish the joints, such as:
- Collagen – a fibrous protein critical to cartilage strength and elasticity
- Elastin – a protein critical to skin, cardiovascular, cartilage and spinal column health. As its name suggests, elastin gives tissue the elastic tension and ability to resume their shape after stretching
- Desmosine and isodesmosine – two little-known amino acids that are responsible for elastin’s elastic and rubbery properties
- Transforming growth factor – a protein that plays a critical role in tissue repair, cellular differentiation and immune function
BiovaFlex works faster
Because it’s water-soluble and more bioavailable to the body, BiovaFlex® works FASTER than NEM, providing pain relief 2-5 days SOONER! (When you’re in pain, this is a huge difference!)
- NEM: works in 7-10 days
- BiovaFlex®: works in 5 days
BiovaFlex works better at a lower dosage
Put simply, BiovaFlex® is STRONGER than NEM – even at a lower dosage! Studies have found thatBiovaFlex® is effective at a dose of 450 mg (NEM is effective at 500 mg).
- NEM: effective at 500 mg
- BiovaFlex®: effective at 450 mg
So the next time you’re standing in front of NEM and BiovaFlex® at the store, remember that BiovaFlex® (found in all of our pain relief products) is a stronger, faster, and more powerful ingredient, that will bring relief from pain sooner than NEM.
