As people age, our bodies gradually weaken and the first to be affected are usually the joints. Constant soreness and aching make it harder to do the things you used to love.
How will Green Lipped Mussels Help?
Native to New Zealand, the green-lipped mussel is known as one of the most nutritious shellfish in the world, offering amazing health benefits. Green Lipped Mussel recently became of interest when it was noticed that Maori living in coastal regions who regularly consumed these mussels were benefiting compared to those who lived inland.
Green lipped mussels are naturally rich in Omega 3 fatty acids, along with vitamins, minerals, and other important nutrients to provide the key building blocks that your body needs to maintain the integrity of joints, ligaments, and tendons.
Omega 3 fatty acids work by inhibiting the production of inflammatory agents (like cytokines and certain enzymes) this means they act like non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (but without the harmful chemicals). By decreasing inflammation, they reduce the migration of white blood cells into joints easing the pain and swelling.
Plus they also benefit your cognitive abilities and cardiovascular health, thanks to its high concentration of EPA and DHA fatty acids.
Why Are Our Green Lipped Mussels the Best?
Each capsule contains 500mg of pure sustainably sourced New Zealand Green Lipped Mussel powder. Even better, we also add Vitamin C. Vitamin C assists the formation of collagen in your body and absorption of calcium, which helps the function of cartilage and bones. The combined power of these nutrients means less inflammation, less pain, and more mobility.
Green Lipped Mussel: a species of mussels with a green edge, or lip, around their shells. They are found only in the pristine waters of New Zealand. Green Lipped Mussel recently became of interest when it was noticed that Maori living in coastal regions who regularly consumed these mussels were benefiting.
It contains a wide variety of vitamins, minerals, omega-3 fats, amino acids, antioxidants, enzymes, and many more nutrients.
Most importantly, while fish oil contains two kinds of omega-3 fatty acids – EPA & DHA – the Green Lipped Mussel contains a third called Eicosatetraenoic Acid (ETA). ETA is a rare form of fatty acid that actually works at the gene level to lower the production of cyclooxygenase. This means even less inflammation and pain.
Vitamin C: also known as Ascorbic Acid, is mainly present in fruits and vegetables. The consumption of such foods is important since, unlike other animals, humans do not have the ability to produce this essential micronutrient ourselves. This means we must top up our vitamin C daily, through the foods we eat and/or food supplements. Because it is water-soluble, this essential vitamin can be also easily lost during cooking and long-term storage.
Vitamin C is involved in a large number of biological processes. It is used to produce protein that makes skin, joints, and bones strong. Vitamin C speeds up wound healing and helps to form red blood cells and prevent bleeding. Our body’s immune system relies on vitamin C to keep the disease-fighting white blood cells active. Vitamin C also helps our body absorb iron and folic acid effectively and turn food into energy.
