A POWERFUL, TRIPLE BLEND OF NUTRACEUTICALS
Glucosamine is a natural building block of cartilage that can help to prevent cartilage degeneration. Glucosamine also influences the production of hyaluronic acid, the main constituent of synovial fluid, the lubricating liquid between joints that allows bones to move smoothly past each other.
Chondroitin sulfate helps protect joints by inhibiting the degradative enzymes that destroy articular (joint) cartilage. Without inhibiting the growth of new blood vessels in the joints, calcification occurs, and the body becomes unable to heal damaged joint tissues. Chondroitin decreases the degradation of cartilage as glucosamine rebuilds it.
MSM (methylsulfonylmethane), a natural source of dietary sulfur, is critical to maintaining the connective tissue’s elasticity and flexibility in joints.
WHAT ARE GREEN-LIPPED MUSSELS?
Green-Lipped Mussels are shellfish native to New Zealand. They get their name from the brownish, green color around the lips of their shells and are the largest species of mussels.
Miracle on the half shell
Research has shown that green-lipped mussels (Perna canaliculus) to be exceptionally beneficial for dogs needing targeted hip and joint support.
Harvested in the pristine waters of New Zealand, this is the only mussel species containing a unique blend of nutrients known to promote joint health and mobility.
Perna mussels are rich in glucosamine, glycosaminoglycans (GAGs), hyaluronic acid, and chondroitin sulfate, all of which contribute to the viscosity of the synovial fluid and help joint lubrication. These highly nutritious shellfish also contain valuable Omega-3 fatty acids, which help promote joint comfort, plus essential vitamins, minerals, and other natural marine micronutrients that help maintain proper joint function.
Our green-lipped mussels are cold-opened and freeze-dried at low temperatures to ensure optimized levels of bioactivity.
