This little shellfish is packed with a unique combination of arthritis-fighting ingredients, such as essential omega-3 fatty acids (including EPA, DHA and a rare fatty acid called ETA) plus glucosamine and chondroitin (two of the key building blocks of cartilage and bones). These ingredients help to fight arthritis in 4 important ways: 1. Quickly relieves joint pain 2. Reduces inflammation 3. Stimulates cartilage production 4. Protects cartilage from damage Extract can boost effectiveness of other arthritis medicines Green lipped mussel is best used in conjunction with other treatments prescribed by your veterinarian, such as pain relieving medicines or anti-inflammatory drugs. In fact, giving your pet green lipped mussel may make it possible to reduce the dose of arthritis medicines, which can lower the risk of side effects from these strong drugs. Good quality mussels Processing green lipped mussels without destroying the active ingredients takes a gentle touch. If there is a delay between harvesting and manufacturing, or if the mussels are steamed open to get the flesh out, the active ingredients lose some of their potency. So unless a product has been manufactured in the right way, your pet may not be getting all the benefits nature intended.
