What is newzealandpurehealth 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 for 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.
Research on green-lipped mussel has thus far focused on OA and RA. Although some studies have failed to demonstrate the therapeutic benefits 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.
In 1986, dried mussel extracts became available that were stabilised with a preservative. The earlier studies that found no beneficial effect of green-lipped mussel on arthritis all used preparations that had not been stabilised, a point that may help explain some of the discrepancies in the research. One recent animal study compared the two forms and found a stabilised lipid extract to be significantly more effective than a nonstabilised extract at inhibiting inflammation. Because both forms are currently available on the market, it may be prudent to check on the form.
Nonsteroidal anti-inflammatories (NSAIDs), such as aspirin and ibuprofen, are often used for inflammatory conditions. However, most of these medications can produce the unfortunate side effect of stomach irritation, which may lead to stomach ulcers if taken frequently. One animal study found that green-lipped mussel significantly reduced stomach ulcers resulting from taking NSAIDs.
I always do extensive research to find the most effective and safe alternatives to traditional medications, whenever possible. I have a very strong family history of arthritis and at age 35 was diagnosed with arthritis myself.
I decided then that I would not use traditional meds to treat such.
Over the years I’ve switched alternate products a bit but for the last several years green lipped mussel has helped me significantly! My symptoms return and worsen terribly within days of running out of green lipped mussels.
I buy from NZ pure because I trust their process and products.
With arthritis troubling me for the past 30 odd years, I started taking more and more high dose fish oil. Then read the arthritis foundation wrote an article on arthritis. It said to make any real difference people need to take huge amounts of fish oil, so I was taking about 6 high dose capsules a day, which was then upsetting my digestive system.
Eventually having to give up my passion of lawn bowls because the fingers were still getting worse/twisted over the years, I tried your green lipped mussel capsules. Best thing, after a while I realized the pain wasn't so intense, and over period of couple of years the fingers had even started to straighten out. Now the pain is a fraction of what it was.
Wished I had known about them years ago. Thank you so much for making this marvelous product available to us.
Love this for both of my dogs, they have been super active over winter not missing a beat despite all sorts of joint issues. Honestly can't see myself ever being without this as a supplement for them!
I’ve been ordering from NZPureHealth for several years now. I like the convenience of the website ordering process as well as the points which can be earned and applied for discounts. My doctor recommended I take a glucosamine chondroitin supplement. I’d had experience with my dog benefitting from green lipped muscle so I started looking for a human supplement, considering quality, sourcing, etc, NZPureHealth checked all the boxes. Hope this product will be available for a long time!
Delivery good. One capsule a day helps but 2 per day does the job & allows me to play outdoor bowls and a session at the Gym weekly. I am 80 years old & have arthritis in my hands & knees. n.z. green lipped mussle.
