Powerful Evidence-Based Ingredients
The Scientific Nutritional Alternative to Glucosamine & Chondroitin
NovaJoint is the science-based nutritional alternative to glucosamine and chondroitin ... delivering breakthrough ingredients including water soluble Eggshell Membrane to support healthy, flexible smooth gliding joints.
NovaJoint delivers a wholesome combination of primary nutrients joints need to stay healthy all in a single capsule.
What is Eggshell Membrane?
Eggshell Membrane is the protective layer lining the eggshell that you might peel away from a hardboiled egg.Unfortunately, you won't get the joint support benefits from cooked eggshell membrane. A proprietary process carefully extracts the delicate membrane from the shell within minutes of cracking, so it can be purified into the nutraceutical used in NovaJoint.
Eggshell Membrane provides an innovative combination of primary nutrients joints need to stay healthy -- all from a single source. Collagen, proteins, amino acids and glycosaminoglycans (GAGs) are essential building blocks of healthy joint tissues. These important joint-nourishing nutrients are found naturally in nutritious, water soluble eggshell membrane.
Eggshell Membrane Quality & Value
Ever wonder where the glucosamine & chondroitin in your supplement came from? For your peace of mind, NovaJoint is made with wholesome Eggshell Membranes harvested directly from USDA-inspected American farms. Every eggshell is completely traceable directly back to the very farm where it was raised. Membranes are gently extracted and purified using a proprietary process that yields a pure, water-soluble nutraceutical containing over 90% protein, with no artificial additives or preservatives.
The eggshell membrane selected for NovaJoint has almost twice the potency of other eggshell membrane products …twice the important biologically active natural compounds your body needs to rebuild cartilage, connective tissue, tendons and lubricate joints to support healthy joint structure and function.
You won’t find a more powerful combination.
Facts About Eggshell Membrane
Allergy, Sensitivity or Egg-Related Concerns
We disclose the starting material of egg, as it is considered a dietary allergen.However, NovaJoint contains eggshell membrane, not the whole egg, egg white or egg yolk which are the primary source of egg allergies and egg-related concerns, like the cholesterol in egg yolks.
Independent university laboratory tests conducted using standard food allergy antibody panels determined that eggshell membrane does not elicit a classic allergic response to eggs.While these tests are not necessarily 100% infallible and cannot be extrapolated to the entire population, they support a preliminary conclusion.
NovaJoint was carefully designed by a physician who spent decades practicing environmental/integrative medicine.We’ve taken special care to design this and all our other products to consider environmental sensitivities, as most all our products are sold to highly discriminating integrative medical practitioners who are concerned about patients’ unique sensitivities.Purity is our goal.
Eggshell membrane is not the same as the whole egg, egg white or egg yolk.All of the cholesterol in eggs is in the egg yolk. So consuming eggshell membrane should have no effect on cholesterol.
In fact, NovaJoint contains numerous ingredients with published scientific evidence supporting healthy cholesterol, lipid balance, heart & vascular health and wellness, and oxidative stress.
- Lipoic acid
- Olive Leaf Extract
- Vitamin D
- Tart Cherry Juice
There have been no scientifically documented, medically monitored or confirmed cases in the scientific literature of Eggshell Membrane adversely impacting healthy cholesterol levels.
NovaJoint is the joint health supplement suitable for ovo-vegetarians and discriminating individuals who wish to avoid animal products like gelatin (softgels are typically made from pork and/or beef gelatin) and shellfish.
Vegetarian Capsule. NovaJoint’s capsule is made from plant-source cellulose, shaded naturally with chlorophyll to protect light sensitive ingredients.
Vegetarian Suitable Probiotics. Even our dairy-free probiotics are suitable for vegetarians.
Healthy You, Healthy Planet
We care about the ecological impact of our product and its packaging. The invaluable Eggshell Membrane used in NovaJoint is a product of the USDA-inspected egg industry and would have been discarded if not for the breakthrough discovery of its benefits. No chickens were sacrificed and no eggs were wasted specifically to harvest the Eggshell Membrane in NovaJoint.
NovaJoint is encapsulated in plant-source, vegetarian capsules shaded green with 100% plant-source chlorophyll to protect light sensitive ingredients. Our plastic bottle is a #2 that we encourage you to recycle when empty.
- No ground shellfish or marine-derived ingredients
- No ground cartilage
- No rooster comb
- No pork gelatin
- No beef gelatin
- No slaughter house byproducts (chondroitin)
Rapid Results in Preliminary Research
The benefits of Eggshell Membrane have been documented in a number of studies. One double blind study of 67 men and women reported noticeable benefits toward joint comfort and function in the first 10 days, which lasted through the end of the 60-day study. In another study of 26 people who took Eggshell Membrane, comfort and range of motion benefits were reported after just seven days and lasted through the 30 day study. More studies are underway.

One small step today could make the difference for you.
Nutrients in Comfort Blend
In addition to Eggshell Membrane, NovaJoint's Comfort Blend contains a powerful combination of high quality researched ingredients, manufactured according to standards practiced by the pharmaceutical industry.
High Molecular Weight Hyaluronic Acid
NovaJoint delivers high molecular weight Hyaluronic acid that functions as “Orally Available Joint Fluid.” High molecular weight Hyaluronic Acid helps maintain healthy joint fluid and optimizes mobility by supporting cartilage lubrication, promoting shock absorption & cushioning for smooth gliding, flexible joints.
Research shows that high molecular weight hyaluronic acid is preferred to low molecular weight hyaluronic acid, which is the typical lower cost hyaluronic acid found in many mass market joint care supplements.
NovaJoint’s Targeted Dairy-Free Probiotics
NovaJoint contains a Triple Probiotic System (Bacillus coagulans, plus Lactobacillus casei & Lactobacillus rhamnosus) that are all dairy-free and vegan suitable.
We carefully selected the special probiotic strains in NovaJoint for their ability to survive harsh stomach acids and perform many beneficial functions within your digestive system*.
*The World Health Organization (WHO) defines probiotics as live microorganisms, which, when administered in adequate amounts, confer a health benefit on the host.
We all have a variety of bacteria in our digestive system -- some beneficial, some not so helpful. From the day you were born, your digestive tract has been colonized by as many as 500 different species of bacteria to create a home for billions of bacteria. One key to good intestinal health is maintaining a population of beneficial bacteria (like the bacterial cultures in real yogurt) to help maintain a healthy balance in the digestive tract.
Some of your intestinal bacteria are called probiotics or “beneficial flora" because they can:
- Help to digest your food*
- Help to maintain healthy bowel regularity*
- Help maintain a healthy balance of intestinal flora*
Lifestyle could alter your intestinal balance by reducing the beneficial flora. But don’t worry, this isn’t permanent and you can make a change by supplementing beneficial bacteria, or probiotics. The specialized probiotics in NovaJoint can help you maintain a balance of healthy beneficial intestinal flora.*
Here are just a few lifestyle factors that could affect the balance of intestinal bacteria:
Diet: Poor dietary choices can disrupt your digestive balance, like fats and sweets or diets low in fiber. Adequate fiber, particularly soluble fiber, promotes the growth of beneficial intestinal flora. Soluble fiber isn’t typically present in foods high in fat or sweets. Try adding foods that provide some soluble fiber and insoluble fiber, drink a healthy amount of pure water and nutritious fluids daily and always eat slowly. These are easy first steps to supporting balanced intestinal health.
Poor Food Prep: Sometimes undercooked foods can allow salmonella and other unfriendly bacteria to survive. This could alter the balance of beneficial (friendly) bacteria and unfriendly organisms.
Medications: Some medications, like antibiotics, can have an adverse effect on the beneficial flora in your intestinal tract. In fact, your doctor may suggest that you eat yogurt or take probiotics after a course of antibiotics to help restore the balance of beneficial flora. Read your medication inserts carefully to see if any of your medications could affect gastrointestinal health and talk to your doctor about probiotics.
Changes in Diet: If you plan to make major changes in your diet, being gradual will give your body time to adjust.
Travel: Traveling exposes you to a whole new world of microorganisms that are not native to your home and work environment, which could affect your digestive balance.
Stress: Stress reducing activities and a positive attitude can have a favorable effect on digestive health.
Age: Digestive balance can change as you age. Your beneficial flora (probiotics) decrease as you age. While there are many factors that could affect digestive balance, you may want to consider including probiotics in your personal wellness strategy.
NovaJoint™ contains three unique strains of beneficial flora to help support healthy intestinal balance.
Boswellia is a natural product prized for thousands of years (Frankincense) to enhance health. The unique forms of Boswellia in NovaJoint can help your body regulate a lipoxygenase enzyme associated with inflammatory molecules that can be a trigger for joint stress.
No other joint health product delivers Triple Standardized Boswellia- three powerful active Boswellia fractions to ensure that you receive the highest quality Boswellia for protecting joint surfaces and to help you to regulate the balance of inflammatory compounds in the joint.
Why did we select all three? Because published scientific research shows that joints respond to a comprehensive combination of all three fractions.
Lunasin is a unique peptide isolated from soy protein and thought to be the active molecule in soy protein that is responsible for many of the proven accepted health benefits associated with soy consumption. Latest research shows that Lunasin peptide may influence inflammatory processes.
I'm allergic to soy. Is consuming Lunasin a problem for people with an allergy to soy?
Unlikely, Lunasin is a small subunit of the 2S albumin fraction of soy and this fraction has been shown in a study* to not cause any allergic reaction in people with sensitivity to soy. (*Lin et al, The Potential Allergenicity of Two 2S Albumins from Soybean (Glycine Max): A Protein Microarray Approach; Int Arch of Allergy Immunol, 2006, 141:91-102.)
What's Special About Lunasin Peptide in Novajoint?
- It is derived from Non-GMO soy;
- It does not contain isoflavones which may interfere with hormone balance;
- It is unfermented (important if you are sensitive to tyramine); and
- It is so concentrated that NovaJoint provides the nutritional equivalent to the amount of natural Lunasin you would get from consuming up to 50g of soy protein.
Sustained Release Alpha Lipoic Acid
Did you know that most Alpha Lipoic Acid is eliminated from the body within 30 minutes after taking it?
Alpha Lipoic Acid is really beneficial, so it is important to keep it in your body as long as possible. NovaJoint contains a nutritional innovation...Sustained Release Alpha Lipoic Acid which has scientifically demonstrated 8-12 hour availability. This means that a single dose of NovaJoint delivers a steady supply of lipoic acid for up to 12 hours instead of being eliminated in minutes.
Alpha Lipoic Acid is a powerful antioxidant that can protect synovial membranes lining the joint surfaces from harmful oxidation that accelerates destruction of cartilage and joint tissues. No other joint care product contains Sustained Release Alpha Lipoic Acid.
Selenium is an important trace element the body can use to regulate inflammation.
In preliminary research, the special form of Selenium used in NovaJoint (Selenomethionine) has demonstrated the capacity to support the healthy regulation of genes in cartilage cells (chondrocytes) responsible for the expression of inflammatory compounds. This may partly explain how Selenomethionine can foster the expression of cellular signals that help the body to maintain a healthy balance of inflammatory mediators, and comfort and safeguard joints by protecting healthy cartilage.
Published research has linked higher intake of boron in the diet to a lower incidence of joint problems, making boron an important mineral to maintain healthy bones and joints. Recent evidence on the role of boron at the cellular level indicates that it enhances cellular antioxidant defenses against lipid peroxidation and other harmful oxidants, helping to protect DNA. In bone cells, boron enhances the production of collagen and other important bone proteins required for bone strength and the normal repair process.
Tocotrienols are unique and potent forms of the natural Vitamin E family that function as exceptional antioxidants. Research shows that tocotrienols affect important cellular mechanisms that can protect cartilage and decrease inflammation markers associated with joint stress. The tocotrienols in NovaJoint are unique because they are water soluble, have improved bioavailability over other tocotrienols, are clinically tested and do not rely on food for absorption. The tocotrienols In NovaJoint also enhance the benefits of triple standardized Boswellia.
Vitamin D is beneficial for maintaining healthy bone strength and structure and is believed to play a role in the function of chondrocytes that produce proteoglycans and collagen, major components of cartilage. Vitamin D regulates the expression of genes required for calcium absorption, the normal repair of cartilage and the healthy balance of inflammatory molecules in the joint lining.
Tired of Glucosamine?
There may be a reason your joints aren’t feeling better even though you’ve been investing time and spending money on expensive glucosamine and chondroitin supplements.
Most joint care supplements rely on combinations of glucosamine and chondroitin. But according to the latest international scientific research, glucosamine and chondroitin performed no better at reducing joint pain than a placebo (nothing at all).
The study authors concluded, “Compared with placebo, glucosamine, chondroitin, and their combination do not reduce joint pain or have an impact on narrowing of joint space.”
If you're disappointed with glucosamine and chondroitin, you may not be alone.
