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.
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 regulary purchase NZPureHealth green lipped mussel because I love the product.
I have osteoarthritis and I find that it really helps my knees,ankles, legs and feet.
I am not good with technology so I always ring from Australia 🇦🇺 to order and the lovely Liz always rings me back when I leave a message.
Liz and her husband are always so very helpful and she points my points in the system.
I spent quite a longtime once chatting to Lizs husband about our dog Bella. She could no longer climb the stairs and the vet suggested an operation.
I said to my husband give me a month with the green lipped mussel.
Liz’s husband told me to give one human tablet of green lipped mussel to Bella, she weighs about 23 kilos.
Now she bounds up the stairs and runs around no trouble at all!
NZ Pure Health do have a pet green lipped mussel you can purchase.
Actually it is the same as the human tablet.
I will continue to purchase from this very caring company. 💕
Love it, both myself and my two dogs take it. Pain is almost gone.I have a bit when I first wake up but after I takes my morning dose I am good to go. My 14 year old big dog has arthritis from her neck to her tail and she walks so much better now.I give it to her at breakfast and another with supper also it’s in her dog food. Great product..
I Introduced it to my sister and her friend. They are experiencing a change which has brought relief to their inflamed system.
I’m totally converted. My whole body was in pain and I seriously considered taking 2 Panadol a day but didn’t want to head down that pathway so tried two different recommended natural alternatives but nothing changed. Then a dear friend told me how green lipped muscle had brought relief to her inflamed system. Two a day and after a week I started to feel relief. I’ve been taking them for 5 months now and that deep inflamed ache hasn’t returned.
At home we can run out of this product, we try different brands before but non is compare it to this one, our 14 years dog is taking it everyday as well of my husband and I, we feel the difference right away, thanks for such a wonderful supplement.
