This Green-lipped Mussel Powder (GlycOmega™) has been harvested in the pristine waters of New Zealand. It provides a rich source of all major classes of Glycosaminoglycans (GAG’s), which are principal components of cartilage and the synovial fluid found in joints. These GAG’s provide flexibility, elasticity and tensile strength to the articular cartilage.
The severity of arthritis is directly related to the loss of GAG's within the joint and surrounding cartilage. As a source of GAG's, Green-lipped Mussel Powder (GlycOmega™) can provide chondrocytes with Chondroitin Sulphate and essential fatty acids. These minerals are critical for reversing the arthritic process. GAG’s can also exert a strong anti-inflammatory action on the connective tissue.
GlycOmega™ is a complete joint-care product due to being well-balanced with Chondroitin Sulphates 4 and 6, chelated minerals, Glycosaminoglycans (GAG's), amino acids and essential fatty acids, which work together to promote healthy cartilage and improve shock-absorbency.
