What is Green Lipped Mussel?

Green-lipped mussel (Perna canaliculus) is a New Zealand shellfish, from which an extract has been shown to be useful in the treatment of rheumatoid arthritis and osteoarthritis.

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.

Health Benefits

Evidence indicates that controlling the production of inflammatory mediators in the body may help improve conditions such as:

  Arthritis Asthma
  Rheumatoid Arthritis Psoriasis
  Osteoarthritis Bursitis
  Ankylosing Spondylitis
  Sports Related Injuries Inflammatory bowel disease
   Lyme Disease 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 normal mobility.

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.
