    What is Green Lipped Mussel?

    Green-lipped mussel (Perna canaliculus) is a New Zealand shellfish, from which an extract has been shown to be useful in the treatment of rheumatoid arthritis and osteoarthritis.

    Green-lipped mussel inhibits inflammation in the body. Although inflammation is normal under certain conditions, consistent or excessive inflammation can result in pain and damage to the body, including the joints. The human body makes several chemical mediators of inflammation. Levels of these chemicals in the body may be higher in people with RA who are experiencing symptoms than in symptom-free people with arthritis.

     

     

    Health Benefits

     

    Research on green-lipped mussel has thus far focused on OA and RA. Although some studies have failed to demonstrate therapeutic benefit of green-lipped mussel in people with arthritis, the outcomes of other studies have been more positive. In one trial, both freeze-dried powder and lipid extract of green-lipped mussel were effective at reducing symptoms in 70% of people with OA and 76% of people with RA. A similar study of people with either OA or RA showed green-lipped mussel reduced pain in 50% and 67% of the patients, respectively, after three months of supplementation.

     

    Nonsteriodal anti-inflammatories (NSAIDs), such as aspirin and ibuprofen, are often used for inflammatory conditions.

     

     

    Comments from three trialists

    1. I have found that by using the green-shell mussel capsules, the pain that I had lived with in my right knee was reduced significantly to a level where I could get better sleep and do more activities than when I commenced the trial.

    2. Green lipped mussel extract certainly worked for me. In the eight weeks I was taking it I noticed a great improvement in my knees. At the end of eight weeks my knees were almost completely pain free and I would recommend green shell mussel to anyone with knee pain.

    3. I definitely noticed a difference taking the green shell mussel. I was actually able to play with my three year old daughter without pain and stiffness in my knees which was wonderful. But when I stopped taking the green shell mussel (at the completion of the trial) the pain and stiffness returned within a few weeks.
