NutriNZ Green Lipped Mussel 4000 is a relatively large shellfish found in the coastal waters of New Zealand. It was an observation that the native Maori who lived in the coastal regions of New Zealand regularly consumed green lipped mussels and consequently had lower incidence of arthritis compared to their counterparts not consuming green lipped mussels. This observation resulted in a deepened interest in the medicinal value of the green lipped mussel and numerous research studies are being done to evaluate its usefulness in inflammatory diseases like arthritis or asthma.

Green Lipped Mussels feed on various types of phytoplankton (which are marine organisms found in ocean waters) and thus concentrate a vast array of marine minerals and nutrients that essentially form the basis of its anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties.

NutriNZ Green Lipped Mussel 4000 is combined with Rosemary Oil, a botanical anti-oxidant. Rosemary oil provides natural pain relief, boosts your immune system and helps to eliminate skin condition (such as eczema, dermatitis, oily skin and acne).

Important: NutriNZ uses cold-opened mussel meat, preserving the anti-inflammatory action and bioactive components of the supplement. 

A Pure & Undiluted Formula – discover some of the benefits yourself (in alphabetical order):

Antioxidant: NutriNZ Green Lipped Mussel 4000 is a potent marine extract, boosted with Rosemary Oil, a botanical antioxidant. You receive natural antioxidant protection at the same time as giving your cartilage and joints complete nutritional support.

Arthritis: Green lipped mussels have potent anti-inflammatory properties due to the inhibition of metabolism of arachidonic acid and the reduced formation of prostaglandins and leukotrienes. The rich polyunsaturated fatty acid content also inhibits lipoxygenase and cyclooxygenase enzymes. They also contain chondroitin sulphate which is the major component of cartilage matrix and synovial fluid.

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.

Cancer: The rich concentration of anti-oxidants such as Omega-3 fatty acids reduces the formation of free radical 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, mucopolysaccharides or glycosaminoglycans, proteins and lipids which are responsible for assisting the restorative processes in the joints. The Omega-3 fatty acid content provides anti-inflammatory properties for joint health 

Fibromyalgia: Controlling inflammation is a priority, to reduce pain and stiffness; Green Lipped Mussel’s rich essential fatty acid content is a proven potent anti-inflammatory. 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. 

Hormonal Balance: Green lipped mussel extract modifies the spontaneous and neurotransmitter-induced uterine contractions reducing pain due to menstruation.

Inflammation: Green Lipped Mussels contain a type of carbohydrate complex that prevents neutrophils from attacking the body’s cells. Inflammation is basically a process by which various cells in the body, including the neutrophils try to neutralize any foreign stimuli including virus or bacteria from harming the body. Even though inflammation is a protective mechanism, excessive inflammation can lead to damage and in certain conditions such as asthma and arthritis the inflammatory process becomes the primary evil that one has to fight against on a daily basis. Green lipped mussels have the ability to supress this inflammatory process, particularly in chronic inflammatory conditions like rheumatoid arthritis, osteoarthritis and bronchial asthma. 

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 minerals, mucopolysaccharides, glycosaminoglycans and bioactive ingredients 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 decreased mobility. 

Muscular Health: Green Lipped Mussel is good for your heart muscles and can prevent heart attacks and other circulatory problems due to the rich content of antioxidants and anti-inflammatory agents. It also prevents gastric mucosal damage due to NSAIDs and other pain killers. It can relax uterine muscles and reduce pain and inflammation due to dysmenorrhoea. It also supports your other muscles and helps them tolerate extended duration of exercises due to the rich mucopolysaccharide content and anti-inflammatory properties. 

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.

Sport: The polyunsaturated fatty acids (PUFA) present in green lipped mussels are responsible for the anti-inflammatory properties. Chondroitin sulphate, which is the primary content of cartilage matrix and synovial fluid of the joints, is present in quantifiable amounts. All these bioactive ingredients make green lipped mussels the ideal supplement for sportspersons who train and/or repeatedly sustain injuries.

NutriNZ Green Lipped Mussel 4000 is not just for humans:

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.

The NutriNZ Advantage:
Green Lipped Mussel 4000 VegeCaps are created 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 4000 VegeCaps are equivalent to 4000mg 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.

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
