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 (RA) and osteoarthritis (OA).
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.
New Zealand Green Health Freeze Dried (stabilized) Green Lipped Mussel Powder
- Supports connective tissue and joint functions
- Rebuilds synovial fluid in joints, ligaments and tendons
- Rich in Glycosaminoglycans (GAG’s) essential fatty acids
- Anti-inflammatory activity tested/verified by University of Otago
Green Lipped Mussel provides a rich source of all major classes of Glycosaminoglycans GAGS which are principle components of cartilage and the synovial fluid found in the joint. These GAGS provide flexibility, elasticity and tensile strength to the articular cartilage. The severity of arthritis is directly related to the loss of GAGS content with the joint and surrounding cartilage.
As a source of GAGS Green Lipped Mussel can provide chondrocytes with Chondroitin Sulphate and essential fatty acids which are critical for reversing the arthritic process. GAGS can also exert a strong anti-flammatory action on the connective tissue.
Green Lipped Mussel is the complete joint-care product as it is well balanced with Chondroitin Sulphates 4 and 6, chelated minerals, Glycosaminoglycan GAGS, amino acids and essential fatty acids which together give a synergistic effect that promotes healthy cartilage and provides shock absorbing properties to the joint.
Green Lipped Mussel Processing
"Only the Highest quality Green Lipped Mussels are selected for Green Lipped Mussel Production"
Green Lipped Mussel is derived from the New Zealand native shellfish species Perna canaliculus. This unique species ensures Green Lipped Mussel contains the highest natural levels of Glycosaminoglycans and Omega-3-fatty acids which promote anti-inflammatory activity.
Green Lipped Mussels are only sourced from EU/USFDA approved growing areas located in the Marlborough Sounds, (Top of the South Island of New Zealand). Prior to harvesting our approved suppliers fully inspect the reen Lipped Mussel quality ensuring that only the highest quality Green Lipped Mussels are selected and harvested. These strict control measures guarantee that our live mussels contain the highest levels of Glycosaminoglycans GAG and Omega-3-fatty acid contents.
Freeze Drying Green Lipped Mussel
Green Lipped Mussels are freeze dried at controlled Low temperatures resulting in high anti-inflammatory activity
Green Lipped Mussels are dried by automated Freeze Drying units. Low temperature controls are achieved throughout the entire freeze drying process ensuring the Green Lipped Mussel components are kept at premium high levels.
Green Lipped Mussel is stabilized with a unique anti-oxidant ensuring maximum anti-infl ammatory activity for long periods.
Advantages of using Green Lipped Mussel capsules contains high natural anti-inflammatory activity.
Contains rich source of amino acids, protein minerals and all major classes of Glycosaminoglycans (GAG’s) including chondroitin 4 and 6 sulphates. GAG’s make up the core of connective tissue.
Rich in omega-3-fatty acids and Bio-Active proteins which help support bone and joint structures.
Promotes the regeneration and healing of arthritic and injured joints in both animals and humans.
Contains essential building blocks needed to rebuild synovial fluid in joints, ligaments and tendons.
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.
