Green Lipped Mussel is a shellfish from New Zealand and a known source of complex proteins, concentrated glycosaminoglycans, amino acids, omega 3 (ETA), omega 6, selenium, and chelated minerals (zinc, copper, and manganese). They are a good source of chondroitin sulfate, a naturally occurring component of animal connective tissue and joint structure. They also may exhibit anti-inflammatory properties that may provide pain relief from elbow or hip dysplasia. We packaged it in a recyclable jar with a 1/4 teaspoon for easy serving.
