What are the benefits newzealandpurehealth Green Lipped Mussel
So how does this unique secret of nature the Green Lipped Mussel (Perna canaliculus) actually help us and our pets? If you suffer from joint pain you are not alone. Millions of people around the world experience the 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 the body?
Welcome, to the Green Lipped Mussel a natural food source and, unless you are allergic to shellfish, there are no negative side effects.
Pets can benefit from these mussels because, when harvested in peak condition, they are 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.
Is it a meal? Is it a mollusc? No, it’s a Superfood
It’s New Zealand’s very own superfood. These 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.
It is always very important to consult with your vet before adding any supplement to your pet’s diet. Although no negative reactions have been reported in correlation with the use of the extract, it’s important to always keep a close eye on your pets when introducing them to new foods and supplements.
I like this product as it is vital to my dogs joints health and has many vitamins which help her with her back legs. It also is a natural inflammatory which helps keep my dogs bones from hurting when they rub together as she has muscle atrophy in the back legs.
Very happy with this product and see the improvement in my dogs mobility
This product is amazing! We cannot describe the improvement in our dogs in only three days of treatment! Highly recommended!
I have a 7 y/o chocolate lab that has already had bilateral TPLO done for torn ACL of each leg. We have tried many products in the past couple of years including Dasuquin which was recommended by out vet which did help some for a while. By chance, I seen the advertisement for this product on FB and figured..Why not?!?! Within 2 weeks we noticed a difference in him and less limping. I highly recommend this product!
My 6yr old Schnauzer/poodle cross is addicted to ball games. She would have periods of tenderness in her right hind leg over a couple of years. After getting a medical all clear but a persistent limp at times I decided to try this product as it's human equivalent rates so well. I have not looked back. After ten days of morning and night capsules she was her old self with no limp. She takes a maintenance capsule a day and has never had periods of limping again. On one occasion I ran out and could instantly see the difference in her agility. Love, love this product and I recommend it to everyone.
