Joint health in companion animals is a major cause of concern for their owners. Normal wear and tear on joints occurs daily, which may result in poor joint function with aging. But even in young or adult animals, with a high level of activity (agility, hunting, jumping, etc), keeping their joints as healthy as possible is also essential as they depend on their ability to move to perform their job at a high level.

NEM® brand partially hydrolyzed eggshell membrane is a natural, food-sourced ingredient that supports joint health, derived from the membrane lining of eggshells. It is obtained through a patented, chemical free, mechanical separation process, followed by an enzymatic partial hydrolyzation. The result is a unique composition of high-value nutrients beneficial for the joints, including collagen (Type I, V, and X), glycosaminoglycans (hyaluronic acid, chondroitin, glucosamine, keratin and others), peptides and sulfur-containing amino acids.
