Key Features

  • Support bone health and cartilage function*.
  • Responsibly sourced.
  • Rich source of amino acids.
  • Added calcium and vitamin C.
  • Perfect partner to Optiflex® Glucosamine.

Product Overview

  • 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.

Only four stars because I've taken green lipped mussel pills for years and the original capsule formula is much easier to swallow than the new formula which is now more tablet then capsule and does seem to taste. But do love this product and know when I miss taking them will continue to buy and be happy with what it does for me.

Thank you for your review - We are sorry to hear that you are not happy with the new formulation of our Green Lipped Mussel Extract and have forwarded your comments onto our Product Team but are pleased to hear that you find it is working for you - Nicola

Great product that keeps the pain of my arthritis to a minimum.

Thank you for your positive comments.

Excellent product but, as commented earlier, they are no longer easy to swallow and I'm not sure I will order them again for this reason alone. I hate swallowing caplets. Why have you stopped the easy swallowing coating?

Thank you for bringing this to our attention, we take ourcustomers feedback very seriously and will pass this on to our Marketing Team.

I have taken this product for many years but it has recently been changed from capsules into tablets - a backward step in my opinion. The tablets are harder to swallow, smell strongly of fish and contain additives to make the product bind into tablet shape. I will not be ordering it again from Healthspan.

We are sorry to hear that you are not happy with our Green Lipped Mussel Extract and have forwarded your comments onto our Product Development Team.  If you wish you may return any unused tablets back to us for a full refund.  Would you kindly confirm your full address and post code and we will issue a freepost label to return - Nicola

I was recommended this product for artritic pain in my hands and feet. I've now taken them for a few years and they have definitely made a difference.

It's great to hear that this product has helped you .

01 October 2016

They work very well which is why I'm really not happy they take so long to be delivered now. I ran out for a week and was in considerable pain for a few days.

3stars at the moment because I haven't had many of them yet

Thank you for your review.

26 September 2016

Large but easy to swallow tablets which have a strong fishy smell which fortunately doesn't linger either in the mouth or in the breath. I haven't been taking them long enough to know how good their effect will be and so cannot comment on their effectiveness as yet.

26 September 2016

My husband has been using this product for a few years now. It had reduced the painful swellings in his fingers. I've just started using it to help the pain in my shoulders. I'm hoping for good results for me too!

23 September 2016

see above - I prefer this item in its previous form - a smooth capsule.

23 September 2016

Tried this on the recommendation of my trainer for arthritic knees. In conjunction with strength training, so much better and no pain now.

It is great to hear how well this product is helping your knees.

20 September 2016

Only been taking for a week so cannot comment on the effectiveness.

Thank you for your review - We would recommend this product be taken for a minimum of 6 to 8 weeks, however maximum benefits may not be obtained until at least 3 to 4 months of continuous usage.


18 September 2016

I don't know if they actually work. Also the pills are quite large and could pose a difficulty swallowing.

16 September 2016

This order has a really unpleasant, salty taste.
