NutriNZ Green Lipped Mussel is widely regarded as a natural cartilage and joint care superfood. It contains pure cold extracted New Zealand Green Lipped Mussel powder and Rosemary Oil, a botanical antioxidant. It is a high-potency nutritional supplement containing amino acids (glutamine and methionine), antioxidants (vitamins E and C), and minerals (zinc, copper, and manganese). It also contains Omega-3 fatty acids that have anti-inflammatory properties.

The fact that our product is ‘cold extracted’ is crucial as it provides significantly higher anti-inflammatory activity in comparison to steam-opened mussel meat powder, and it ensures the bioactive components are preserved.

This extra-strength formula provides 19,000mg of fresh green-lipped mussel extract. Native Māori have been using green-lipped mussels for medicinal purposes for hundreds of years and it is highly regarded within the natural health world for the following key benefits:

Discover some of the benefits yourself (in alphabetical order):

Animal Health: Great for cats and dogs who are beginning to slow down and stiffen up as time goes on. The amino acids and essential Omega-3 fatty acids offer the same joint and cartilage support that you have come to enjoy to your beloved pets.

Asthma: Green lipped mussel extract reduces day-time wheezing and peak expiratory flow (PEF). It assists in the management of atopic asthma due to its anti-inflammatory effect on the lung tissues. A recent study in New Zealand showed that the Green Lipped Mussel’s fatty acid content effectively reduced the severity of asthma symptoms in children, potentially reducing the amount of conventional steroid-based medication required to manage the condition.

Fibromyalgia: Together with controlling inflammation green lipped mussel extract also contains a number of other bio-nutrients including vitamin D, magnesium and zinc. The muscle aches, spasms and joint pain of fibromyalgia can be aggravated if you’re deficient in any of these important substances.

Inflammation: Even though inflammation is a protective response, it can lead to damage and conditions such as asthma and arthritis. Green lipped mussel contains high levels of Omega-3 fatty acids, making it a very effective natural anti-inflammatory supplement, which in turn helps with pain management and mobility in general.

Irritable Bowel Syndrome: Omega-3 polyunsaturated fatty acids are potent anti-inflammatory substances which are very efficient in reducing the pain and inflammation associated with irritable bowel syndrome (IBS). Green lipped mussel prevents mucosal ulcers in the gut lumen. Adding NutriNZ Green Lipped Mussel can effectively reduce NSAID-induced gastrointestinal damage besides reducing the severity of pain and other symptoms of irritable bowel syndrome.

Joint Pain & Mobility: Green Lipped Mussel contain numerous bioactive components which are the building blocks of your joints. Omega-3 polyunsaturated fatty acid, Eicosapentanoic Acid (EPA) and Docosahexanoic Acid (DHA) are anti-inflammatory agents that are useful in preventing joint pains and reduced mobility. Chondroitin sulphate, which is the primary content of cartilage matrix and synovial fluid of the joints, is present in quantifiable amounts.

Skin: It has anti-inflammatory properties which prevent the formation of leucotrienes which can help combat skin allergies. The chemical makeup of green lipped mussel is also known to improve skin, nail and hair health.

What are Green Lipped Mussels?
The Green Lipped Mussel (Perna canaliculus) is a shellfish native to the New Zealand coast. Interest in the health benefits of Green Lipped Mussel (GLM) stemmed from the observations of native Maori who resided in the coastal regions of New Zealand. Native Maori have included GLM as a staple in their diet for hundreds of years, and it was found that they had a lower incidence of arthritis than European or inland Maori populations.

How are they farmed?
Green Lipped Mussel are naturally able to obtain fundamental nutrients from phytoplankton (a marine organism found in ocean waters) and a vast array of marine minerals found only in the untainted ocean conditions of New Zealand’s pristine waters.
Spat (juvenile mussels) are collected where they wash up in their millions attached to clumps of seaweed. After arriving at a mussel farm, spat are transferred to nursery ropes and grown on the ropes in seawater until about 6 months of age. At this point, they are removed and reseeded onto long-lines (stretches of rope up to several kilometres long) that are suspended between buoys.

Is it normal for the capsules content to have a strong flavour/smell?
Yes, it is completely normal and natural as Green Lipped Mussel is a fresh shellfish product.

After more than 30 years of research and clinical experience, green lipped mussel extract is recognised as one of the most effective natural anti-inflammatory and joint mobility supplements available.

120 patients with arthrosis of the knee were assessed for reduction of pain. Both patients and physician independently recorded and assessed improvements in pain and mobility.

Purchased this supplement for my 2-year old dog, as he was diagnosed with joint problems. Within just 3-4 weeks I saw a great difference! – Cheryl K. USA

I have had osteoarthritis for quite some time now but found that after taking this supplement there has been an incredible reduction in pain and an increase in mobility. On top of this, I no longer have to take as many drugs for pain. – Jan B. Australia

I cycle long distance and without this product my knees become so saw and stiff that movement is excruciating, with it my knees are totally fine! – Nick P. New Zealand

I genuinely thought my dog improved after a couple of days, but how much of that was wishful thinking, I can’t be sure. However, certainly after a couple of weeks he was like a different dog, he hasn’t limped since and really enjoys running around like a lunatic on walks in the woods – I thought he was just easy going before, but now realise he was probably uncomfortable! – Mike O. USA

I had been having shoulder pain after months of dealing with a partial tear in my biceps tendon. Manual therapy, Prolo therapy, acupuncture and other treatments hadn’t been effective. I began taking your Deer Antler Velvet and Green Lipped Sea Mussel supplements. My shoulder start feeling better within a few weeks, within 6 weeks the pain was completely gone. One of the most profound changes I’ve ever encountered taking various supplements, thank you so much for your products! – Allan K, USA
