Green Lipped Mussel from New Zealand. So?

We have all heard about Green Lipped Mussel for joints.  But what is the big idea about them and is any mussel okay?

New Zealand Green Lipped Mussel or Perna Canaliculus is an edible green-lipped mussel sourced from the waters of New Zealand. This particular species of green-lipped mussel is a proven powerful relief for arthritis in dogs and humans – naturally.

New Zealand Green Lipped Mussel is also a key ingredient in Sashas Blend. NZ Green Lipped Mussel is proven to soothe joint pain and inflammation of arthritis. These uniquely beneficial shellfish are packed with natural omega-3s – an extremely powerful anti-inflammatory health supplement.

The Green Lipped Mussel helps treat the symptoms of arthritis through a 4-pronged approach:
  1. Reducing joint inflammation
  2. Relieving aches and pain
  3. Building healthy cartilage
  4. Protecting joints from damage



Not all Green Lipped Mussel products are created equal.

Unfortunately, there are no regulations guaranteeing the quality of ingredients in supplements.  Supplements are often sold without any scientific backing. This means the only protection buyers have against low-quality or ineffective products are the trustworthiness of their chosen brand.

Interpath, the manufacturers of Sashas Blend, invest millions of $ in time and research, ensuring the Green Lipped Mussel powder used in Sashas Blend contains superior active ingredients at optimum levels.

Green Lipped Mussels can oxidise very quickly when exposed to heat or air, resulting in low anti-inflammatory activity.

Interpath ensures that their Green Lipped Mussels are:

  • Harvested and processed at state-of-the-art facilities to optimise the retention of delicate nutrients. Our supplier’s refining centre is located right next to its mussel farms to ensure stable supply channels.
  • Dried at controlled low temperatures for potent anti-inflammatory activity.
