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 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.
Nonsteriodal 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.
This is by far the best product I have found. Many others I have tried include turmeric which upsets my stomach, so I am extremely satisfied to fine a product that suits me so well and alleviates my arthritic symptoms. Excellent service with just a few days delivery internationally. I’m very impressed

Myself and my partner have been taking the green lipped mussel for well over 6 years and We have found it keeps our aches And pains away. Whenever we stopped or changed brands all my aches came back so we have always come back to this brand.

My mom has been suffered from arthritis over years and Green Lipped Mussel is her favorite compared to many other joint related products that I have purchased for her (including pills including glucosamine chondroitin msm). She said this product is much easier to digester than others and in particular one from this company smells less fishy (easy to swallow). I am a regular buyer of this product. Believe me! I tried at least 3 different NZ product companies. This one is best.
