NutriNZ Green Lipped Mussel 19,000 is a shellfish sourced from the clean coastal waters of New Zealand and is a rich source of minerals and nutrients. Native Māori have been consuming green lipped mussel for hundreds of years and it is highly regarded within the natural health world for the key benefits below.

  • Support joint and cartilage health
  • Rich in anti-inflammatory components
  • Reduces joint pain and promotes mobility
  • Helps manage symptoms of arthritis
  • Animals can benefit also!

PLUS we have combined our green lipped mussel with Rosemary Oil, a botanical antioxidant. Rosemary oil provides natural pain relief, boosts your immune system and helps to eliminate skin condition (such as eczema, dermatitis, oily skin and acne).

 

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. 

Antioxidant: Both green lipped mussel and rosemary oil contain powerful antioxidant properties. Benefit from natural antioxidant protection and at the same time give your cartilage and joints complete nutritional support. 

Appearance & Anti-Ageing: The chemical makeup of green lipped mussel is known to improve skin, nail and hair health and its antioxidant properties are known to help with the signs of ageing. 

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! The shellfish also contains chondroitin, a building block of healthy joints. Studies have shown that chondroitin sulphate is as effective for osteoarthritis pain as anti-inflammatory drugs.

Asthma: It helps 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.

Cancer: The rich concentration of antioxidants such as Omega-3 fatty acids reduces the formation of free radicals known to increase the risk of cancer. Green lipped mussel extract has been used for the treatment of breast cancer due to its anti-cancer properties for many decades. It also contains two inhibiting enzymes, 5-lipoxygenase and 12-lipoxygenase, both of which are also known to prevent cancer.  

Connective Tissue: Rich in minerals, proteins and lipids, green lipped mussel works to assist the restorative processes in joints and promotes healthy connective tissue growth. 

Fibromyalgia: The muscle aches, spasms and joint pain of fibromyalgia can be lessened through the anti-inflammatory contents of green lipped mussel, such as the rich essential fatty acids, vitamin D, magnesium and zinc.

Inflammation: Even though inflammation is a protective response, it can lead to damage and conditions such as astham 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 (IBS): Omega-3 polyunsaturated fatty acids are potent anti-inflammatory substances which are very efficient in reducing the pain and inflammation associated with IBS. Green lipped mussel can effectively reduce NSAID-induced gastrointestinal damage and works to reduce the severity of pain and other symptoms of IBS. 

Joint Pain and Mobility: Green lipped mussels contain Omega-3 polyunsaturated fatty acid, Eicosapentanoic Acid (EPA) and Docosahexanoic Acid (DHA), which work as anti-inflammatory agents useful in preventing joint pain and promoting mobility. Plus it contains Vitamin C, a powerful antioxidant that reduces oxidative damage.  

Muscular Health & Development: Green lipped mussel is good for your heart muscles and can prevent circulatory issues due to its antioxidants and anti-inflammatory properties. It also supports your other muscles, supporting healthy growth and helping them tolerate extended duration of exercises due to the rich mucopolysaccharide content and anti-inflammatory properties.  

Sport: It supports healthy mussel growth and supports the endurance and strength required for extended exercise due to the rich mucopolysaccharide content and anti-inflammatory properties. It also contains chondroitin sulphate, which is the primary content of cartilage matrix and synovial fluid of the joints.

 

The NutriNZ Advantage:
Green Lipped Mussel 19,000 Capsules are made from cold extracted Greenshell Mussel meat (Perna canaliculus) sourced from licensed marine farms in the South Island of New Zealand. 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.

Bioactive Components:
Green Lipped Mussel 19,000 Capsules are equivalent to 19,000mg of fresh green lipped mussel per capsule. It is a high potency blend of cold extracted Green Lipped Mussel meat and Rosemary Oil, a botanical anti-oxidant. This combination provides you with a complete cartilage and joint-care product, as the rich nutrient content offers significant levels of anti-inflammatory activity.

Green lipped mussels contain glycosaminoglycans such as chondroitin sulphate, the principal building block of healthy joints. They also contain Omega-3 polyunsaturated fatty acids such as Eicosapentanoic Acid (EPA) and Docosahexanoic Acid (DHA) which are highly potent anti-inflammatory substances. Green lipped mussels also contain amino acids glutamine and methionine, antioxidant vitamins E and C, and minerals zinc, copper and manganese.

Quality Standard:
Our Green Lipped Mussels are sourced from the Marlborough Sounds in the South Island of New Zealand. New Zealand’s mussel farms are monitored and regulated by the New Zealand Ministry of Agriculture and Fisheries (MAF) to ensure the industry is not only sustainable, but environmentally responsible.

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.

New Zealand’s marine-farmed Green Lipped Mussel follow industry best practice guidelines and the New Zealand Environmental Code of Practice for the supply of safe, sustainable and healthy seafood products. In fact, New Zealand marine farmers’ safe, sustainable and environmentally friendly practices have been recognised by the international conservation organisation Blue Ocean Institute, which ranks New Zealand Green Lipped Mussel as one of the top two ‘eco-friendly seafood’s in the world.

Is it normal for the VegeCaps content to have a strong flavour/smell?
Yes, it is completely normal and natural as GLM 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.

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
