All About Green Lipped Mussels

Named for its green edges, perna canaliculus is a very special shellfish. These molluscs only grow in the rich south Pacific waters around New Zealand. Also known as the green shell mussel, it has long been treasured by New Zealand’s native Māori people.

They can be found around the country’s long, rich coastline and are an essential food source in the traditional Māori diet. As a result, they’ve been beloved for centuries.

They’re not just a delicious addition to any seafood supper – they contain powerful, natural anti-inflammatory properties. Ongoing research demonstrates that consuming powder made from the ground up remains of this shellfish may offer significant relief from arthritis.

Health Benefits

Green lipped mussels are a well-tolerated, effective nutritional product for joint mobility support and treating arthritis.

They’re naturally rich in Omega 3 essential fatty acids, which have been shown to help with everything from mental health to blood pressure. They also contain high levels of proteins, minerals, enzymes and other beneficial nutritional compounds.

Research has shown that consuming any mussel, but especially those of the green lipped variety, is incredibly advantageous for flexibility, mobility and joint suppleness. They’re an effective source of relief from the joint stiffness, pain, inflammation and mobility issues caused by rheumatoid and osteoarthritis.

Our powder can also supply nutrients that are essential to the body’s process of repairing joint and cartilage damage. That’s why they can be beneficial in improving tendon, ligament and muscle function and relieving conditions such as fibromyalgia and fibrositis.

Due to their potent natural anti-inflammatory properties, these shellfish may also help treat other inflammatory conditions. These could include ulcerative colitis, Crohn’s disease and asthma.

Researchers have determined that perna canaliculus, if we are to use their latin name, are a rich source of anti-inflammatory Omega 3 fatty acids. They may help to inhibit the enzymes and proteins that cause inflammation and pain in the human body. This is likely to be the source of their potent anti-inflammatory properties.

These shellfish also contain chondroitin sulphate. This compound is a component of the connective tissues in the joints and thus may help joint repair and reduce inflammation. They are also rich in other exceptional nutrients and minerals such as zinc, iron, selenium and several B-vitamins.

Due to their natural, organic origins, consuming this powder helps you avoid the dietary upsets or potential side effects that traditional painkillers may sometimes cause.

As you can see, green lipped mussels are rich in a full array of powerful natural nutrients. With their organic origins, total purity and convenient preparation, our Southern Deep powder capsules couldn’t be easier to add to your diet.
