Renowned for being rich in omega fatty acids, vitamins and minerals, green-lipped mussel is a potent ingredient for maintaining your dog’s health. Non-defatted green-lipped mussel serves as a potent anti-inflammatory aid, supporting your dog’s joint health and fighting allergies.

What is the green-lipped mussel?

The green-lipped mussel is a bivalve mollusk, like a clam, farmed in New Zealand. The New Zealand green-lipped mussel industry possesses some of the highest quality control regulations in the world. The farmers grow, harvest, and process the green-lipped mussel to make oils, powders, and other nutritional supplements that you may encounter in your local store.

How green-lipped mussel can help your dog

Green-lipped mussel can be an excellent source of omega-3 and omega-6 fatty acids as well as minerals such as calcium and zinc that are essential for maintenance of joint health. Studies have also shown that green-lipped mussel extracts inhibit activation of specific parts of the inflammatory response, which can help relieve itchy skin as well as support joint health.

Supplementing your dog’s diet with non-defatted green-lipped mussel powder provides your dog with a natural source of protein, omega 3 fatty acids, lipids, chondroitin sulfate, glycogen and many other vitamins and minerals essential for maintaining healthy cartilage and soft tissue health while decreasing inflammation in joints. The anti-inflammatory effects of green-lipped mussel can also significantly decrease symptoms of allergy – like uncontrolled scratching.

For best results, find non-defatted

The quality of green-lipped mussel products available to consumers can vary greatly. The fatty acid and mineral content is highest in “non-defatted” green-lipped mussel. The process of de-fatting includes pressing the mussel to remove the oils prior to freeze-drying and grinding into a powder. This process, of course, presses out the valuable omega fatty acids – taking their health benefits with them.

Watching your dog struggle to do the things they used to love, or scratching until they remove fur is very unsettling. Incorporating green-lipped mussel into their diet can help them find relief – especially when the green-lipped mussel works in concert with cannabinoids to improve mobility. And when they feel better, you feel better!
