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.

I always order green lipped mussel capsules from Healthspan for my dog. These are easy to open and sprinkle on her food. Very disappointed with my last order when I realised that they are now hard tablets. My dog won't take them whole so I have to crush them, which is not easy

We appreciate you taking the time to leave a review - We are sorry to hear of the problems with our new formulation of our Green Lipped Mussel extract and have forwarded these onto our Product Development Team - Nicola

I have been using Green Lipped Mussel for many years and was taken aback on this last delivery to find that the product had changed , no doubt the content is the same but I really do not like the change from capsule to solid tablet.

Has benefited my health considerably

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 ..............so 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.


18 October 2016

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
