What is Green Lipped Mussel?

The green lipped mussel is rapidly gaining attention as a natural supplement for relief from chronic joint and inflammatory illnesses such as arthritis, osteoarthritis and rheumatism.

The green lipped mussel is rapidly gaining attention as a natural supplement for relief from chronic joint and inflammatory illnesses such as arthritis, osteoarthritis and rheumatism. 


Native to New Zealand, these shellfish have been consumed by the Maori people for thousands of years.  The health benefits of the green lipped mussel came to the attention of westerners in the 1960s because of the notable absence of inflammatory illness among the Maori people.


Further studies have shown that this unique shell fish is a rich natural source of Omega 3 fatty acids and naturally contains Glucosamine and Chondroitin Sulphate. 


Omega 3 is an essential nutrient for our bodies and helps with blood clotting, cell production and protection from heart disease. Chondroitin and glucosamine are both components of natural cartilage and are used within the body to build cartilage. Chondroitin is known to block enzymes that break down cartilage, helping to protect joints from inflammatory disease.


These potent nutrients provide protection, repair and relief to inflamed and worn out joints affected by arthritic illness, and Green Lipped Mussel is a rich, natural source of all three.


Whilst this natural wonder is best consumed direct, it's difficult for people outside of New Zealand to have access to fresh Green Lipped Mussel, so natural supplements are becoming more common.


Recent media attention in Australia has also drawn attention to the unique qualities of the Green Lipped Mussel and its benefits for relieving joint inflammation and pain associated with arthritis.


While early converts are already enjoying the health benefits of this colourful mollusc it seems certain that the Green Lipped Mussel is soon to become yet another widely known and used natural supplement for the treatment and relief of arthritis.
