The New Zealand green-lipped mussel, also known as the New Zealand mussel or the greenshell mussel, Perna canaliculus, is a species of bivalve mollusc in the family Mytilidae. The green-lipped mussel is endemic to New Zealand, and is found sub-tidally and intertidally throughout the country.
The green-lipped mussel differs from other mussel species in that it has a dark brown/green shell, a green lip around the edge of the shells and only has one adductor muscle. It is also one of the largest mussel species reaching 240 mm in length.
Green Lipped Mussels contain five kinds of Omega-3 (EPA, DHA, ETA, OTA, etc) all of which are necessarily for the human body. Green Lipped Mussel Extract also contains a rich blend of natural proteins, minerals and mucopolysaccharides. These naturally occurring mussel extract substances are increasingly being recognised as helping joint mobility, cartilage maintenance, good health and general well being.
Green lip mussel supports normal anti-inflammatory mechanisms in the body. Although inflammation is normal under certain conditions, consistent or excessive inflammation can result in pain and damage to the body, including the joints. The human body makes several chemical mediators of inflammation. Levels of these chemicals in the body may be higher in people with rheumatoid arthritis who are experiencing symptoms than in symptom-free people with arthritis. Evidence indicates that supporting the normal production of inflammatory mediators in the body may support joint mobility, respiratory health, healthy skin and bowel health.
