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 had damaged the NCL cartilage of my Knee way back in 2006. I was diagnosed only in 2013, which is a terrible process in the Canadian health system. I was an athlete who ran every day to keep physically fit. So I felt horrible for disable to run but even unable to walk and move freely, coupled with enormous pain in my knee. My orthopedic surgeon suggested me to go for a knee replacement, but I was so depressed at that decision and asked him to prescribe a knee brace, and he did just that. I moved around with it till 2017, when a couple talked to me regarding the same Green Lipped Mussels. I took one capsule of GLM in the morning and once at night. I am surprised that an unbelievable change has occurred to me, today I am free of all pain, and I can walk without the help of the knee- braces, a transformation unimagined and unbelievable. No wonder the purest GLM comes delivered to me from the purest-oceans surroundings of the least polluted part of this world, New Zealand, and for sure the Nzpurehealth and its producers and directors who maintain the highest quality standards. I have recommended it so far to 10 of my friends who are suffering from knee-related issues, and I can confirm that all of them are free of pain within one to two years. Hats-off to the founder, all those associated, and the employees who are keeping this world from terrible knee replacement procedures and pain. I shall not hesitate to recommend this particular product GLM to anyone. What a noble thing you are all doing across the sea at that end? I am Rajkumar. I live in the small suburban town of Surrey. It is an hour's drive from the most beautiful city in the world, Vancouver.
The elderly dogs and their elderly owner all enjoy our daily dose and joints are behaving beautifully: buy 5 get one free welcome bonus. Delivery quick and problem free. Thank you NZ.
I've been taking these for several yrs. and wouldn't be without them. Tried stopping them for a short while and arthritic pain was back almost immediately. Will not do that again; I'll continue to take these. My primary care doc knows I take them: he looked it up on the internet & said it was okay for me to take them.
