A natural solution with multiple benefits

As our world and environment continues to change, consumers are looking to the companies they buy from to operate responsibly. It is no longer enough to not actively harm the environment, but now we need to be proactive about the healing of our world.

Recycling clearly isn’t enough; we need to find new ways to stop disposing of things. Food waste accounts for billions of tons of greenhouse gas emissions going into the environment each year. Supplement manufacturers can help reduce their impact by choosing upcycled ingredients.

Biova pulls from the waste stream of commercial food production. Helping to keep 2 billion eggshells out of landfills every year. Our environmentally friendly eggshell membrane ingredients provide collagen, elastin, glucosamine and chondroitin, all from one source in nature. Clinically proven to provide support for joint and skin health, click here to find out more about how Biova can help you choose a better ingredient for a cleaner world.

What is eggshell membrane and how is it sustainably sourced?

Eggshells are easier to process once the membrane is removed. The shells are then used for soil and feed supplementation.

Biova works in partnership with some of the largest egg-breaking facilities in the US to reclaim material that would otherwise find no use. Biova specializes in recovering this natural resource and creating specialty eggshell membrane nutritional ingredients for joint health, skin health and pet health, produced entirely from sustainably-sourced eggshell membrane.
