What Makes Green-Lipped Mussels So Special in Managing Joint Pain?

You don’t want to settle for second-best when looking for joint pain management in the short-term and long term. That’s why so many people quickly choose a natural fish oil supplement to offer them the proper relief. But, is that the best you can do? Or would something like green-lipped mussel oil be better? Here’s what you’ll need to keep in mind when doing your research.

Why is this suddenly so popular?

Unless you are deliberately looking for them, there aren’t that many omega -3 supplements without fish oil at first glance. This is why many people may feel a little confused about why, suddenly, an alternative is so popular. The secret is, of course, that green-lipped mussel oil (GLMO) has always been the superior choice and continues to be even with all of the other natural and pharmaceutical options. The impressive potential of green-lipped mussels comes down to three components: the potency of its active ingredients, the sourcing of the oil, and its approach to joint pain management.

The potency of GLMO

The main selling feature of GLMO is its impressive potency. Containing full-spectrum omega 3s, 6s, and 9s (more than your traditional fish oil sources), this oil also features Eicosatetraenoic Acid (ETA), which works wonders on inflammation (more on that later). Essentially, from one detail to the next, green-lipped mussel oil has a higher potency in its natural ingredients than other fish oil sources that you’re used to seeing. This is a strong starting point for its potential -- in more ways than one!

The other feature of this oil is that it has supercharged benefits and health potential when appropriately extracted. For best results in the potency of natural ingredients, a cold ultrasonic extraction offers the best results. This method pulls out the most potent amount of active ingredients from each harvest, allowing for the strongest potency possible.

The sourcing of GLMO

Some will farm mussels just like a lot of other options. The strongest mussels are wild-harvested, however. Coming off the tides from around NZ, wild mussels will be strongest and healthier than even the best cared-for farmed mussels.

Another advantage is that the mussels themselves get their nutrients exclusively from phytoplankton. A part of the process of converting this into polar long-chain fatty acids for our benefit, the mussel’s food to the extraction of the oil itself is all about its potency.

Then there is the sourcing of the mussels themselves to think about. Wild-harvested from New Zealand, these will be feeding on the strongest phytoplankton in the world, thanks to the natural hole in the ozone layer that makes for powerful and resilient food sources. These work their way up to us, too, delivering their benefits in a richer potency.

Lastly, New Zealand oceans are unpolluted and free from microplastics and other common contaminants that you can often find in classic farming situations. This helps promote stronger mussels and, of course, stronger ingredients.

The approach to joint pain management

We’ve already talked about the sheer difference in the number of full-spectrum omegas compared to fish oil, but there’s another approach hinted at earlier. This is the presence of Eicosatetraenoic Acid (ETA). This manages joint paint at its source by going all of the way to, well, the source. It can help significantly lower the inflammation in the body by going all the way down to a cellular level. Green-lipped mussels are the only known source of ETA, making it your trusted source for more omegas and an added benefit of ETA, all naturally found in green-lipped mussels.

A trustworthy choice for inflammation

While most people will look at an omega 3 supplement for joint pain, GLMO can also be supportive in managing inflammatory conditions. For example, fibromyalgia, eczema, and carpal tunnel.

Offering a natural choice for inflammation management, this can be an especially helpful supplement for those feeling their age kick in. Omega-3s support protecting eye health from age-related macular degeneration and providing management in cholesterol and blood pressure. They can even help maintain cognitive function in those who struggle with short-term memory loss.

Practical and trustworthy management of joint pain comes from the right active ingredients and understanding what makes them so potent and helpful in seeking relief. While you may have only heard of fish oil as you go-to natural omega-3 choices, it’s nice to know that there are options out there that will work better than fish oil in all of the ways that matter and won’t leave you with those pesky fish burps afterward, or force you to take a giant capsule to get the same health benefits.
