Equine Green Lipped Mussel
Scientifically proven to:
- Support healthy joint mobility, function, and flexion
- Support healthy ligaments and muscle tissue
- Support a healthy immune system
Green Lipped Mussel is a sustainably sourced mussel from New Zealand. It is a natural source of glucosamine and chondroitin, aiding in ligament and tissue health. It improves flexion and joint comfort.
Studies directly in the equine industry are very limited - but luckily there has been a study done on green lipped mussel in hoses with chronic joint lameness. Send us a message for a link to this article, but they concluded that horses supplemented with GLM "showed a significant reduction in severity of lameness, improved response to the joint flexion test, and reduced joint pain..." (Cayzer, Hedderley, and Gray).
Green Lipped Mussels (GLM) have also been used for centuries for their potent nutrients and minerals. GLM contains nutrients such as omega 3 fatty acids, vitamins and minerals such as vitamin E, vitamin C, zinc, copper, iodine, and manganese, amino acids, enzymes, antioxidants, as well as the natural forms of glucosamine and chondroitin.
GLM provides your horse with 3 forms of omega 3 fatty acids - EPA, DHA, and ETA. ETA is a rare form of omega 3 fatty acids which lowers an enzyme that causes inflammation. This results in increased mobility for your horse through less pain and inflammation.
