What is Green Lipped Mussel?

  • Gelatin Free
Healthspan’s Green-Lipped Mussel is sourced from the unpolluted waters of New Zealand. The New Zealand Ministry of Agriculture and Fisheries (MAF) monitor the waters from which the mussels used in this premium formulation are harvested. This ensures that they come from an unpolluted and pristine source before they are processed and added to our tablets.

Each tablet contains 500mg of green-lipped mussel powder. Our expert nutritionists recommend a daily intake of 1,000mg of green-lipped mussel, which is why we recommend two tablets daily.

Calcium and vitamin C are also included in this unique formulation. Calcium is needed for the maintenance of normal bones, while vitamin C contributes to normal collagen formation for the normal function of cartilage and bones.

Green-lipped mussels contain all major classes of glycosaminoglycans in a biologically balanced combination, and are a naturally rich source of amino acids.

For optimum benefit it is recommended that anyone taking green-lipped mussel should also consider taking an Optiflex® Glucosamine HCl supplement.

*Contains calcium which contributes to the maintenance of normal bones, and vitamin C which contributes to normal collagen formation for the normal function of cartilage and bones.
