Green-lipped Mussel Powder (GlycOmega™) (Perna Canaliculus) is a revolutionary extract combining the well known properties of omega-3 fatty acids, chondroitin sulphate, glucosamine and glycosaminoglcans. The synergies between all these active principles are of huge interest in the nutraceutical and veterinary industry. GlycOmega™ promotes healthy cartilage and provides shock absorbing properties to the joint. Extensive publications and trials are demonstrating the effects of these categories of active principles.
Clinically researched and found to reduce joint pain and increase joint mobility, GlycOmega™ provides a rich source of all major classes of glycosaminoglycans (GAGs), which are principal components of cartilage and the synovial fluid found in joints. GAG’s provide flexibility, elasticity and tensile strength to articular cartilage. The severity of arthritis is directly related to the loss of GAGs content with the joint and surrounding cartilage.
Perna canaliculus is an edible species of shellfish from New Zealand. Research over the past 20 years shows that the perna mussel contains a combination of natural components that benefit joint dysfunction, which isolated components do not provide.
It is rich in:
Amino Acids (essential and non-essential) to support the growth and development of all body tissues
Branched-chain amino acids (valine, isoleucine and leucine) used to provide energy directly to muscle tissue
Naturally chelated minerals (for maximum bioavailability) to support the production of collagen, GAGs, proteoglycans, antioxidants and enzyme activity, and to support bone and skeletal health
Omega 3, 6 and 9 fatty acids to support joint health, immune system function and skin health, and to help regulate metabolic functions
Naturally occurring glucosamine to support the production of GAGs and integrity of the synovial fluid
Chondroitin Sulfates and Protein Factors that work synergistically to regulate the immune response and to neutralize the effects of destructive proteolytic enzymes
Chondroitin Sulfates to support comfort, improve joint lubrication, elasticity and vasculature
Hyaluronic Acid to enhance the production of proteoglycans, support synovial fluid, lubricate connective tissue cells, and function as a lubricant between the connective tissues of the skin to retain moisture
