The oil extracted from green lipped mussel is rich in Omega 3 Fatty Acids, a powerful health supplement. The nutrients of green lipped mussel can be extracted and used to treat inflammatory illnesses and joint pain, with many other accompanying health benefits. Scientific Nutritional Products includes green lipped mussel in their equine joint supplement Horse Joint Right Supreme so in our latest blog we fill you in!
Green lipped mussel has been hailed as a miracle supplement or food stuff because no matter how consumed, either as a seafood dish or as a supplementary powder, it has been shown to offer positive health benefits. Green Lipped Mussel, taken from Perna Canaliculus, a bivalve mollusc (mussel) has been cultivated off the New Zealand coast since the 1970s and they are considered to be one of the top two ecologically sound types of seafood worldwide.
As the body metabolizes the natural omega-3s found in green lipped mussel oil, the Omega 3 Fatty Acids including EPA, DHA and ETAs function to restore and soothe inflamed joints, muscles and tissues. Green lipped mussel also contains naturally occurring Chondroitin Sulphate another highly beneficial ingredient boosting joint health and the combination can offer a great deal of pain relief for people and animals struggling with joint pain.
Green Lipped Mussel is also been shown to offer a benefit to respiratory conditions including asthma, chronic bronchitis as the supplement can help lung tissue to regain strength and restore normal breathing ability!
