NutriNZ Green Lipped Mussel is widely regarded as a natural cartilage and joint care superfood. It contains pure cold extracted New Zealand Green Lipped Mussel powder and Rosemary Oil, a botanical antioxidant. It is a high-potency nutritional supplement containing amino acids (glutamine and methionine), antioxidants (vitamins E and C), and minerals (zinc, copper, and manganese). It also contains Omega-3 fatty acids that have anti-inflammatory properties.

The fact that our product is ‘cold extracted’ is crucial as it provides significantly higher anti-inflammatory activity in comparison to steam-opened mussel meat powder, and it ensures the bioactive components are preserved.

This extra-strength formula provides 19,000mg of fresh green-lipped mussel extract. Native Māori have been using green-lipped mussels for medicinal purposes for hundreds of years and it is highly regarded within the natural health world for the following key benefits:

Discover some of the benefits yourself (in alphabetical order):

Animal Health: Great for cats and dogs who are beginning to slow down and stiffen up as time goes on. The amino acids and essential Omega-3 fatty acids offer the same joint and cartilage support that you have come to enjoy to your beloved pets.

Asthma: Green lipped mussel extract reduces day-time wheezing and peak expiratory flow (PEF). It assists in the management of atopic asthma due to its anti-inflammatory effect on the lung tissues. A recent study in New Zealand showed that the Green Lipped Mussel’s fatty acid content effectively reduced the severity of asthma symptoms in children, potentially reducing the amount of conventional steroid-based medication required to manage the condition.

Fibromyalgia: Together with controlling inflammation green lipped mussel extract also contains a number of other bio-nutrients including vitamin D, magnesium and zinc. The muscle aches, spasms and joint pain of fibromyalgia can be aggravated if you’re deficient in any of these important substances.

Inflammation: Even though inflammation is a protective response, it can lead to damage and conditions such as asthma and arthritis. Green lipped mussel contains high levels of Omega-3 fatty acids, making it a very effective natural anti-inflammatory supplement, which in turn helps with pain management and mobility in general.

Irritable Bowel Syndrome: Omega-3 polyunsaturated fatty acids are potent anti-inflammatory substances which are very efficient in reducing the pain and inflammation associated with irritable bowel syndrome (IBS). Green lipped mussel prevents mucosal ulcers in the gut lumen. Adding NutriNZ Green Lipped Mussel can effectively reduce NSAID-induced gastrointestinal damage besides reducing the severity of pain and other symptoms of irritable bowel syndrome.

Joint Pain & Mobility: Green Lipped Mussel contain numerous bioactive components which are the building blocks of your joints. Omega-3 polyunsaturated fatty acid, Eicosapentanoic Acid (EPA) and Docosahexanoic Acid (DHA) are anti-inflammatory agents that are useful in preventing joint pains and reduced mobility. Chondroitin sulphate, which is the primary content of cartilage matrix and synovial fluid of the joints, is present in quantifiable amounts.

Skin: It has anti-inflammatory properties which prevent the formation of leucotrienes which can help combat skin allergies. The chemical makeup of green lipped mussel is also known to improve skin, nail and hair health.

What does Deer Antler Velvet Growth mean?

Deer antler grows at incredible speed and, after several weeks, as the velvet reaches the final size, the cartilage within them gradually converts into bone. In this final process, the antler’s blood supply and nerves are lost. When the antlers have fully hardened, the stags rub them against trees or rocks to remove the skin that remains. As a result of this rubbing, the deer develop sharp bony weapons for combat against threats to their harem of females during the autumn rut or mating season.

Each spring the velvet antler cycle begins new and the skin around the pedicle expands and grows, initiating new velvet antler growth. The hard antler from the previous season is cast off and the growth of the new season’s velvet crop begins. It is then that the velvet is harvested for its medicinal and performance qualities.

Is Deer Antler Velvet safe to take?
Yes! One example of a study on safety was commissioned by the University of Otago in New Zealand and overseen by Dr. James M. Suttie, a world recognised leader in velvet research. The studies were carried out according to OECD standards. The studies showed that after 90 days of supplementation with velvet antler, the subjects were showing no unusual signs or symptoms and the doses of antler velvet evaluated in the trial were far greater than any doses of velvet antler commonly used by humans.

How is NutriNZ Premium Grade New Zealand Deer Antler Velvet collected?
Humanely and ethically collected whilst the deer is alive, under local anaesthetics and under the supervision of a licensed veterinarian. It is a quick and painless procedure that does not harm the deer. Following the procedure, the deer is released back into the herd.

It is also important to note that antler removal is required on most deer farm as antlered deer are considered a danger to the herd. So even deer farms that do not produce deer antler velvet practice this procedure.
