The cartilage-strengthening, joint-protective effect of green mussel extract in dogs

  • The New Zealand green mussel and the extract made from it help the regeneration of damaged and inflamed joints.
  • It contains the basic building materials necessary for the functioning of joints, cartilage, and bones.
  • It reduces and helps prevent joint pain.

The cartilage-strengthening and joint-protecting power of the extract is ensured by the high content of glucosaminoglycans (GAG) in it. In general, it can be said about green mussels that they relieve and cure musculoskeletal complaints and diseases.


The anti-inflammatory effect of green lipped mussel

The high concentration of Omega 3 fatty acids is “responsible” for the anti-inflammatory effect of mussels. Among its Omega 3 fatty acids is eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA), which is responsible for the beneficial effects of green mussel extract against arthritis and rheumatoid arthritis.

    • To preserve the mobility of dogs

It is a natural physiological process that free radicals are produced in the body. Some of our cells produce free radicals to protect us from harmful micro-organisms that attack our body.A properly functioning body is also able to neutralize the free radicals produced by itself.

If more free radicals than necessary are released in our body, or if we do not give our body the nutrients necessary for neutralization processes, this balance is upset.

Free radicals no longer act only against pathogens, but also threaten the healthy cells of our body, adversely affecting their functioning, promoting the aging process, and damaging DNA, proteins, carbohydrates and fats.

The antioxidant content of mussels helps the body neutralize pathological cell changes and free radicals.

General anti-aging and immune-boosting effect of green lipped mussel

  • anti-aging

Some of the lesser-known benefits of mussels include strengthening bones and teeth, improving the functioning of nerve cells, as well as being responsible for the health of the skin, hair and nails.
