Our Secret

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 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.


  • Promotes joint health and mobility
  • Helps the body naturally repair and rebuild damaged cartilage
  • Supports connective tissue, speeds repair of ligaments and tendons
  • Provides significant anti-inflammatory activity
  • Natural pain relief without the long-term side effects of arthritic drugs

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.

    • Q: How can Green Lipped Mussel assist with joint health?
      A: Unfortunately, due to normal wear & tear and through injury, joint cartilage can become thin and brittle. Green Lipped Mussel contains rich compounds such as glycosaminoglycans which can help the body repair and rebuild damaged cartilage.

      Q: Why do your Green Lipped Mussel capsules have a strong smell?
      A: Our supplement is made from pure fresh mussels so the capsules maintain the natural smell of the shellfish itself. The smell is due to the freshness and potency of the raw ingredients. We do not add artificial flavours or preservatives to cover the smell. 

      Q: Is it okay for me to take Green Lipped Mussel even if I currently don’t have any joint issues?
      Yes, most definitely. Green Lipped Mussel will help support the structural integrity of your connective tissues and help slow down the ageing process.

      QHow soon should I expect to benefit from taking Green Lipped Mussel supplements?
      A:  Benefits vary from person to person, but most customers will notice positive effects after 4 weeks of taking the supplement.

Working Knees

Having been on meds for many years for arthritis in both knees, I can now walk and use stairs without pain after 2 weeks of use. Will watch closely to continue the healing.

Thanks for the great feedback. We hope you continue to feel improvement with your knee pain.

Green Lipped Muscle

I can honestly say I can remember when I started taking Green Lipped Muscle and I can honestly say I don't know when I will quit using it. Ever since I started taking it my fine motor skills improved. I have arthritis in the first joints of my fingers and have never had pain in those joints. I do a lot with my hands, sewing, reading and gardening. Without Green Lipped Muscle I could never live the lifestyle I have. I hope I can still be this active in 10 years. I think that can happen taking Green Lipped Muscle.

Significantly Reduced Inflammation

Using this product twice daily has greatly relieved lower back pain. I have used it for two years.

Thanks Deb for your review. Very happy to hear your back pain has greatly improved through taking Green Lipped Mussel.

So far so good!!!!

I bought the green-lipped mussel supplements after reading about treatment of joint pain. I started taking them about 2 weeks ago. Before I did I had noticeable hip aches almost daily. I am 63 years old so I guess that is not unusual. Today and for the past 3-4 days I have had no hip ache or other joint pain. Maybe it is a coincidence maybe not but I am going to continue to take them. My wife has arthritis in her fingers so I suggested that she try them. I am giving the pet version to my elderly dogs that have joint issues and I will see if it helps them with their pain?

Thanks Mike for the review. I'm sure our Green Lippped Mussel extract will help both your wife and dog with their joint pain and arthritis also.

Great product!

This product is everything the description says and more. My friend recommended me to try the DBH range of GLM and I have not looked back. I don’t usually write reviews, but if you are like me and like to make sure everything is as it seems, then I recommend you try the Deep Blue Health products. The product is the most potent on the market. Don’t be put off by the smell when you open the bottle. The first time I used it, I was taken back by the smell, but this is literally the potent nature of the natural Green Lipped Mussel.
