MOTION ARMOUR. The breakthrough formulation of natural, patented ingredients to protect your joints developed by PILLAR Performance.

MOTION ARMOUR is a first-to-market combination of patented ingredients NEM®, 5-LOXIN® along with curcumin.

Why is this so important? Sadly, our joints, particularly our joint cartilage, have a shelf life. Protecting our joints for optimal performance today is one thing, futureproofing them to continue to challenge yourself physically later in life is another.

How have we done it? Egg shells.

What is NEM® and how does it work?

NEM® is the original eggshell membrane from Stratum Nutrition, USA and used by PILLAR Performance under a trademark license agreement.

This game changing joint health ingredient is the most clinically studied ingredient of it’s kind, backed by 16 published research studies. Throughout these trials both subjective and objective measurement tools are used, which adds another level of substantiation to the results.

Sustainably sourced by carefully removing the membrane from used chicken eggshells that would otherwise be environmental waste, this membrane is then partially hydrolyzed in a chemical free process.

NEM® is a source of glycosaminoglycans, such as chondroitin and hyaluronic acid, as well as three varieties of collagen.

These ingredients are the structural building blocks of connective tissue, and NEM® has been proven to reinforce joint structure to provide symptomatic relief of mild osteoarthritis through relief of joint pain and ultimately, improved function.

As part of several group clinical trials undertaken – featuring a range of age, gender and health parameters – it has been shown that:

  • NEM® has been shown to help relieve pain associated with exercise in as little as 1 day and stiffness in as little as 4 days. For those with discomfort and stiffness associated with chronic wear-and-tear on joint tissue, randomised control trial (RCT) studies revealed significant reductions in pain and stiffness in as little as 7-10 days.
  • NEM® supplementation has been shown to significantly decrease an objective biomarker of joint cartilage metabolism and breakdown in exercising individuals. These results were reinforced in animal studies and in a veterinary RCT.
  • NEM® has not only been shown to be safe in the human subjects participating in clinical trials, but has also been the focus of published safety studies revealing its extraordinary safety.

At PILLAR Performance, we’ve paired NEM® with 5-LOXIN® and curcumin to bring you MOTION ARMOUR.

5-LOXIN® is a patented, clinically-studied boswellia extract with clinical trials showing positive benefit specifically for cartilage break-down.
