Info: 60 Softgels (50 mg each)
Native in New Zealand's waters, the green lipped mussel (so named for the green-tinged tip of its shell) contains eicosatetraenoic acid (ETA) and stearidonic acid (SDA). These omega-3 fatty acids are not found in significant amounts in other conventional marine sources, and seem to be particularly effective in reducing inflammation caused by osteoarthritis.
When scientists researched the health of the Maori people, they found that they remained incredibly agile even into old age; arthritis wasn't a problem. Upon further research, they discovered that the probable explanation for this was their regular consumption of the green lipped mussel.
A similar formulation was previously marketed as Lyprinol/Liprinin.
Each softgel contains: 50 mg Green-lipped mussel fatty acid extract (Perna canaliculus).
Other ingredients: olive oil, d-alpha tocopherol (from soy). Softgel: gelatin (bovine), glycerin.
