The natives of New Zealand, the origin of the green-lipped mussel, have benefited from its extraordinary properties since the 1970s, although they have only been introduced to the western world in recent years and are undoubtedly a discovery.
Today, these mussels are farmed in the waters of the Marlborough Sounds, Golden & Tasman Bays, and Coromandel. Approximately 160,000 tonnes of green-lipped mussels are harvested annually, representing New Zealand’s largest aquaculture export.
And it is not for less, the green mussel is a natural supplement that only has one drawback, (whether you are human or animal) if you are allergic to shellfish you will not be able to eat it. If this is not the case, congratulations, your joints and those of your pet will enjoy their benefits.
These mollusks are a rich source of omega fatty acids and minerals, a super food that contains a wide variety of vitamins, amino acids, Omega-3 fats, antioxidants, enzymes and many more nutrients. Specifically, the powdered extract contains a very high concentration of omega-3 fats and a unique combination of other fatty acids, rarely found in other marine or plant life. In addition, one of its greatest healing properties is its natural anti-inflammatory effects, as well they are an excellent source of glucosamine and chondroitin (essential components for healthy bones and cartilage).
