Unique to New Zealand, Green Lipped Mussel (Green Shell Mussel) is one of nature's most powerful functional foods containing a range of bioactive ingredients that in particular promote joint health.
Our Deep Blue Health Green Lipped Mussel is sourced from licensed marine farms in the South Island of New Zealand and is rich in Glycosaminoglycans (GAGs), Omega 3 fatty acids, Glucosamine, Chondroitin sulfate, and marine protein. Our Green Lipped Mussel is freeze-dried to preserve these natural nutrients that provide support for joints.
In a recent composition analysis test of our Green Lipped Mussel, (batch dated 7 March 2019) Chondroitin Sulfate was found to equal an amazing 19.01% in our powder. This is an incredibly high percentage, which will have added benefits for our customers wanting to improve their joint health.
Green Lipped Mussel is an excellent source of Glycosaminoglycans (GAGs) that make the principal components of cartilage and the synovial fluid found in joints. These GAGs provide flexibility, elasticity and tensile strength to the articular cartilage. Taking GAGs can also exert a strong anti-inflammatory action on the connective tissue.
Research is also showing that Green Lipped Mussel may help with a reduction in inflammation leading to improved breathing in those suffering from asthma.
