Green-lipped mussels come from New Zealand waters and they’re another rich source of Omega fatty acids and minerals, as well as vitamins, amino acids, antioxidants and enzymes.
Green-lipped mussel isn’t only useful for pets that are already suffering from arthritis. Many pet owners use this supplement as a preventative in order to save their pets some pain and stiffness down the line.
In addition to their inflammatory healing properties, these mussels are considered a superfood because they contain a huge variety of vitamins, minerals, amino acids, Omega-3 fats, antioxidants, enzymes, and many more nutrients. You’ve got to love green lipped mussel, even if it does smell a little... well, smelly.
New Zealand green-lipped mussel has been shown to contain omega-3 fatty acids, including eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA), docosahexaenoic acid (DHA) and a unique omega-3 fatty acid – eicosatetraenoic acid (ETA) – which interacts in the body with both the cyclooxygenase (COX) and lipoxygenase pathways.
Green-lipped mussel also contains glycosaminoglycans (chondroitin sulphate), glutamine (a glycosaminoglycan precursor), vitamins C and E and antioxidant micronutrients (including zinc, copper and selenium) that can be beneficial in helping to maintain joint health.
