Just like humans, pets can experience joint pain issues including arthritis and osteoarthritis. Unfortunately there is no cure for arthritis in pets, but there are many remedies you can use to reduce symptoms and relieve their pain. Oftentimes when prescribed anti-inflammatory drugs to relieve the pain, the side effects for your cat or dog can be undesirable. Therefore, a lot of people have searched out more natural alternatives, and ultimately stumble across the power of green-lipped mussels.
Green-lipped mussels contain a range of Omega fatty acids, not found in any other marine species or plant. These specific fatty acids and essential Omega-3's support the nutritional maintenance of bone and joint structures. The green-lipped mussel (perna canaliculus) is endemic to New Zealand and provides a rich source of glucosamine, chondroitin, glycogens, Omega-3 and Omega-6 fatty acids.
Benefits of green-lipped mussels for pets:
Traditional air-drying uses heat, which degrades and destroys many essential nutrients. By contrast, Aroma's freeze-drying equipment has been specifically designed to retain as much of the original product as possible.
"My 13-year-old German Shepherd cross has had arthritis for the past 3 years. I have been giving him Green-Lipped Mussel Powder with his evening meal for the past two years and his stiff joints improved noticeably after the first three weeks. Despite his age he is still quite active and enjoys his daily walks. The vet is impressed with his overall condition and is happy with his daily dose of mussel powder. Thank you for your product which allows me to continue sharing his company."

"I have been using pure Green Lipped Mussel powder for a year now and my elderly horse has not looked back. His arthritis has been totally manageable, enabling us to compete again and get placed in dressage. His coat is shiny and you can see much harder, healthier hoof growth. I’m convinced that this has been the key to extending our riding time together."

"We have made amazing progress with Jack and his arthritis. We were skeptical at first but have been proven wrong. It did take about a month to start seeing a difference, but now we have to admit your product has certainly worked. Although he still has a slight limp, this goes within a day, unlike previously where it could be 4 – 5 days before he was back to normal and on restricted exercise. As a result we have been able to increase the duration and frequency of his walks – good news!" - Toni bird, Nelson
