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.
1. never happened wrong delivery, so I trust its delivery system - remember that I live in Korea, that is international shipping!
2. shipping cost is free if I buy enough.
3. I believe its quality because it is made in Newzealand - clean environment.
One disappointing point:
I have used this company more than 15 years, but my previous account and record was gone after web site changes - I do not know how I can recover it.
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.
Hi I have been giving these to my Retrievers for years as my vet said to give it to them from baby’s.Next year iam also going to try the Dear Velvet capsules as well,I would like to THANK ALL THE STAFF for all the support u give us throughout the year.Have A Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year. from North Wales,England🎄
I have been taking these tablets for some weeks and I find they certainly have reduced the inflammation pain caused by my arthritis.
My sister has also been taking them and has very swollen arthritic nodules on her fingers. These have reduced in size and consequently she has more movement And pain relief.
