What are the benefits of NZ Pure Health Green Lipped Mussel for pets

So how does this unique secret of nature the Green Lipped Mussel (Perna canaliculus) actually help us and our pets? If your pet suffers from joint pain you are not alone. Millions of people around the world experience the heart aches associated with an inflammatory condition that can manifest itself as arthritis, osteoarthritis and rheumatism. And the same can be said for our canine friends, as they age, they too can experience the same discomforts.

There are several kinds of anti-inflammatory medications that treat these ailments. However, as with most forms of medication, some of these anti-inflammatories can have serious side effects. Who wants to rid their poor pet of joint pain only to create problems elsewhere in their body?

Green Lipped Mussel for Pets is a natural food source and with no negative side effects, unless allergic to shellfish.

Pets can benefit from these green lipped mussel because, when harvested in peak condition, it is a rich source of omega fatty acids and minerals. Powdered extract of Green Lipped Mussel contains a very high concentration of omega-3s and a unique combination of fatty acids that are not found in any other marine or plant life. Studies have also shown that they are used in order to reduce pain, and they can act as a feeding stimulant. However, their greatest healing properties correspond to the fact that they are a natural anti-inflammatory due to them being an excellent source of glucosamine and chondroitin. Glucosamine and Chondroitin are important building blocks for bones and cartilage. They are key in reducing and inhibiting inflammation and relieving pain associated with joint problems in your pet.

Is it a meal? Is it a mollusc? No, it’s a Superfood

It’s New Zealand’s very own superfood. These green lipped mussels are considered a superfood because they contain a huge variety of vitamins, minerals, amino acids, Omega-3 fats, antioxidants, enzymes and many more nutrients – the Green Lipped Mussel’s superpower is that it’s good for you and your pets for just about everything. It’s not only useful for pets already suffering from joint issues but is great as a preventative in order to save your pets from pain and stiffness down the line.

How much does your dog need?

Stick to the dosage guidelines mentioned, you may want to start with the ‘acute’ dosage’, if your dog’s condition is severe. Or for example, if your dog is suffering from arthritis and you do not see any improvement in the first 2-4 weeks of giving the supplement at a maintenance dosage, you can increase the dosage to ‘acute’. After a month or so, once your pet’s health condition improves, you can decrease the dosage to the maintenance dosages mentioned.


1-10kg give 1 capsule per day

11-25kg give 2 capsules per day

26-40kg give 3 capsules per day

40+kg give 4 capsules per day


Give dosage twice daily for 10 days then reduce to once daily or as required.

Good stuff

Dog loves them keeps her going. Definitely works

Very pleased

We have been giving our dog/s these for quite a while now. Both dogs had joint problems and stiffness particularly the older one ( who is now deceased). I haven’t reviewed these capsules before because I really wanted to make sure it wasn’t coincidence that they helped. It has been long enough now to say with confidence- yes they really do make a very positive difference.
