Natural Factors Natural Eggshell Membrane

Natural Factors Natural Eggshell Membrane rounds out our list of top supplements. These guys generally do a good job with supplements, but this one left us wishing for more.

EFFECTIVENESS

Natural Factors has long been one of the leading manufacturers of nutritional supplements, so we were excited to test their Natural Eggshell Membrane. While not a bad product by any means, the results were ultimately disappointing.

The supplement is basically just natural eggshell membrane. That’s it, no anti-inflammatories or black pepper extract for absorption. While this will eventually have good results for your joint health, in the short term you’ll still suffer joint pain, besides missing out on some great health benefits from ingredients like turmeric.

The manufacturer recommends taking 2 capsules per day with meals, and the capsules themselves are easy to swallow. We had no issues whatsoever with sticking to the regimen, which is a big plus.

However, despite the fact that this supplement has the recommended daily amount of natural eggshell membrane, the lack of other positive ingredients make this product incomplete at best.

SAFETY

Natural Factors didn’t include any objectionable ingredients in this product, and the pills are vegetarian and gluten-free. There should be no issue with this product in terms of safety concerns.

COST

This is one of the more inexpensive supplements on the market, but that’s likely because it doesn’t have as many active ingredients as some other options. If your primary concern is saving a buck or two, then this is a fine option, but just be aware you’ll be making some sacrifices in terms of quality.

SUMMARY

While this nice supplement gets a nod, it just doesn’t offer enough to make it higher on our list. We wanted to see more ingredients and higher doses for us to be convinced. Still, it’s better than nothing, but if you’re only going to buy one supplement, we think you’ll do better shopping around.
