What is Green Lipped Mussel?
Green-lipped mussel (Perna
is a New Zealand shellfish, from which an extract has been shown to
be useful in the treatment of rheumatoid arthritis and
Green-lipped mussel inhibits
inflammation 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 RA who are
experiencing symptoms than in symptom-free people with arthritis.
History of Green Lipped Mussel
Green Lipped Mussel benefits were first discovered over 30 years
ago. But it wasn’t until 1986, that the dried mussel extracts
became available. Since then it has become more and more
recognized for its powerful healing properties.
Evidence indicates that
controlling the production of inflammatory mediators in the body
may help improve conditions such as:
Connective Tissue Repair
Research on green-lipped mussel has
thus far focused on OA and RA. Although some studies have failed to
demonstrate therapeutic benefit of green-lipped mussel in people
with arthritis, the outcomes of other studies have been more
positive. In one trial, both freeze-dried powder and lipid extract
of green-lipped mussel were effective at reducing symptoms in 70% of
people with OA and 76% of people with RA. A similar study of people
with either OA or RA showed green-lipped mussel reduced pain in 50%
and 67% of the patients, respectively, after three months of supplementation.Scientists
studied dogs with poor mobility, giving them powdered green-lipped
mussels extract for just six weeks, in which time the dogs regained
Nonsteriodal anti-inflammatories (NSAIDs),
such as aspirin and ibuprofen, are often used for inflammatory
conditions. However, most of these medications can produce the
unfortunate side effect of stomach irritation, which may lead to
stomach ulcer if taken frequently. One animal study found that
green-lipped mussel significantly reduced stomach ulcers resulting
from taking NSAIDs.
