What is NZ Pure Health 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.
500g Green Lipped Mussel powder (5:1) equivalent to 2500mg of fresh Green Lipped Mussel and encapsulating materials.
This product contains no artificial flavours, colours or preservatives.

Take one (1) or two (2) capsules daily as a dietary food supplement or as professionally advised.

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 actually bought these for my husband because we wanted to try a different product that was more expensive. He's been taking them twice a day, most of the time, but hasn't said much about any change with his joint pain, however I've noticed he's not complaining as much. I also started taking them and noticed that my leg spasms, at night, have decreased drastically.
My 5 yr. old Cocker Spaniel sustained an injury to his back muscles earlier in 2022. He was in constant pain, and I did not want to give him harmful pain medication. I read up on the benefits of Green Mussel and decided to give him one capsule daily. I could see a difference in his activity level in the first week. He is back to his healthy self now. I will continue to give him this beneficial health supplement as long as it is available.
I also decided to try this for a painful foot problem due to a tendon injury issue. Amazing results as well! There were days that walking on my foot at all was miserable. Now, I can do everything. I would say that my pain level went from a 10 at the worst day to a 1-2 now. I will also continue taking the product. It really does work for the pain. My skin and nails also have improved! Great side benefit!
Thanks for this wonderful product.
I purchased these as my husband was having a lot of knee pain.
I started him on them and within 2 weeks he had stop complaining of pain in his knee.
He was not aware I had added these to his daily pills so there has not been a placebo effect.
I will continue to buy.
Great product for your brain and body
I’ve used this particular Green Lipped Mussel Extract for several years and am extremely satisfied. I particularly appreciate that it does not include turmeric as an added ingredient as I have found turmeric supplement really disagrees with my digestive system. I’ve had arthritis in my hands for many years and this is the only product I’ve found that really is effective. Love it
