Microgenics Mussel 19000 New Zealand Green Lipped 120 Capsules

Green Lipped Mussel (Perna canaliculus) comes from the waters that surround New Zealand. The name refers back to the green line where the two shell halves meet, resembling a pair of green lips.


Green Lipped Mussels are rich in minerals, essential amino acids, glycosaminoglycans (GAGs), chondroitin and omega 3 fatty acids.4 The omega 3 fatty acids are believed to be responsible for the anti-inflammatory properties, which have an action similar to Non-Steroidal Anti-Inflammatory Drugs (NSAIDs)2,3, while the GAG’s are believed to help rebuild the cartilage.

This makes Green Lipped Mussel beneficial in mild osteoarthritis, a condition where people suffer from painful, swollen joints and have a limited range of motion. Around 2.1 million or 1 in 11 Australians suffer from osteoarthritis, but this number increases with age: 1 in 5 over the age of 45 and 1 in 3 over the age of 80 suffer from osteoarthritis.5

A 2012-study showed that joint pain and stiffness decreased and mobility improved by 49% after taking Green Lipped Mussel for 8 weeks.1
