Green Lipped Mussel
Unique to New Zealand, Green Lipped Mussel (Green Shell Mussel) is one of nature's most powerful functional foods containing a range of bioactive ingredients that in particular promote joint health.
Our Deep Blue Health Green Lipped Mussel is sourced from licensed marine farms in the South Island of New Zealand and is rich in Glycosaminoglycans (GAGs), Omega 3 fatty acids, Glucosamine, Chondroitin sulfate, and marine protein. Our Green Lipped Mussel is freeze-dried to preserve these natural nutrients that provide support for joints.
In a recent composition analysis test of Deep Blue Health's Green Lipped Mussel, (batch dated 7 March 2019) Chondroitin Sulfate was found to equal an amazing 19.01% in our powder. This is an incredibly high percentage, which will have added benefits for everyone wanting to improve their joint health.
- Promotes joint health and mobility
- Helps the body naturally repair and rebuild damaged cartilage

- Provides significant anti-inflammatory activity
- Natural pain relief without the long-term side effects of arthritic drugs
Green Lipped Mussel is an excellent source of Glycosaminoglycans (GAGs) that make the principal components of cartilage and the synovial fluid found in joints. These GAGs provide flexibility, elasticity and tensile strength to the articular cartilage. Taking GAGs can also exert a strong anti-inflammatory action on the connective tissue.
Take one or two capsules daily as a dietary food supplement or as professionally advised.
Each capsule contains 500mg of Green Lipped Mussel powder (5:1) equivalent to 2500mg of fresh Green Lipped Mussel and encapsulating materials. No artificial colours, flavours or preservatives.
Q: How can Green Lipped Mussel assist with joint health?
A: Unfortunately, due to normal wear & tear and through injury, joint cartilage can become thin and brittle. Green Lipped Mussel contains rich compounds such as glycosaminoglycans which can help the body repair and rebuild damaged cartilage.
Q: Why do your Green Lipped Mussel capsules have a strong smell?
A: Our supplement is made from pure fresh mussels so the capsules maintain the natural smell of the shellfish itself. The smell is due to the freshness and potency of the raw ingredients. We do not add artificial flavours or preservatives to cover the smell.
Q: Is it okay for me to take Green Lipped Mussel even if I currently don’t have any joint issues?
A: Yes, most definitely. Green Lipped Mussel will help support the structural integrity of your connective tissues and help slow down the ageing process.
Q: How soon should I expect to benefit from taking Green Lipped Mussel supplements?
A: Benefits vary from person to person, but most customers will notice positive effects after 4 weeks of taking the supplement.
