> Green-Lipped Mussel
The New Zealand green-lipped mussel (Perna canaliculus) is
the largest of the mussels found off the coast of New Zealand.
You can easily recognise it by its dark brown/green shell and green lips around the edge.
Mussels contain Omega 3 fatty acid, many beneficial vitamins and minerals, are rich in protein and tastes really good too. You should try some in one of Auckland's many fine restaurants.
Omega 3 fatty acid is a natural anti-inflammatory of great benefit to people who suffer from painful, swollen joints due to rheumatoid arthritis and osteoarthritis.

It's usually found in high quality fish oils but the best source for this natural substance is these giant mussels from New Zealand.
More people today than ever before are looking for a healthy, natural treatment for rheumatoid arthritis instead of pharmaceutical drugs such as corticosteroids, many of which have harmful side effects.
Mussel extract contains Glucosamine and Chondroitin Sulphate, both of which help build joint cartilage and reduce swelling of the joints, greatly relieving pain. In tests it even outperformed non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs such as ibuprofen.
It has not been known to cause any stomach upsets, making it a very powerful but safe alternative to conventional medicines.
If you're a sufferer of lower back pain caused by inflammation this wonder of nature can help you too.
You'll generally need to take between 200 and 1250 mg of mussel extract per day depending on your age and how severe your condition is.
