Our flagship green-lipped mussel products are renowned for their support of joints and connective tissue. Customers suffering from inflammatory conditions such as arthritis report less pain and more mobility.
Green-lipped mussel (Latin name Perna canaliculus) is a New Zealand shellfish. Extracts of this unique natural product have been shown to be useful in the treatment of rheumatoid arthritis (RA) and osteoarthritis (OA).
Green-lipped mussel inhibits inflammation in our bodies. While inflammation can be a normal physiological response to certain conditions, ongoing or excessive inflammation results in pain and potential long-term damage to the body, and in particular to the joints. The human body makes several chemical mediators for inflammation. Levels of these chemicals in the body may be higher in people with rheumatoid arthritis who are experiencing symptoms than in symptom-free people with arthritis.
