How does it help?
Well, let’s talk joint pain for a moment. Millions of cats and dogs around the world experience the aches associated with an inflammatory condition that can manifest itself as arthritis, osteoarthritis, rheumatism or gout.
You and your four-legged friends can benefit from the mussels because, when harvested in peak condition, they are a rich source of omega fatty acids and minerals. Green Lipped Mussels contains very high concentration of omega-3s and a unique combination of fatty acids that is not found in any other marine or plant life. Studies have also shown that they are used in order to reduce pain, and they can act as a feeding stimulant. However, their greatest healing properties correspond to the fact that they are a natural anti-inflammatory due to them being an excellent source of glucosamine and chondroitin.
The two healing agents, Glucosamin and chondroitin are important and critical building blocks for bones and cartilage. They are key in reducing and inhibiting inflammation, and relieving pain associated with joint problems.
A Virtual Superfood!
In addition to their inflammatory healing properties, these mussels are considered a superfood because they contain a huge variety of vitamins, minerals, amino acids, Omega-3 fats, antioxidants, enzymes, and many more nutrients.
GLM can also be used as a preventative in order to save your pet from pain and stiffness as they get older.

How Much Does Your Dog Need?
1 to 5 a day. However, the amount of mussels given depends on the size of the pet and the severity of your pet’s condition. If your pet is suffering from arthritis and you do not see any improvement in the first 2-4 weeks, you can increase the dosage slightly. After a month or so, once your pet’s health condition improves, you can decrease the dosage to the previous dosages mentioned.
It is always very important to consult with your vet before adding any supplement to your pet’s diet. Although no negative reactions have been reported in correlation with the use of the extract, it’s important to always keep a close eye on your pets when introducing them to new foods and supplements.
Sp why not take the plunge and put a little “mussel” into your pet’s diet.
