New Zealand green-lipped mussels harvested from the famous Marlborough Sounds sea-drowned valleys is effective in treating joint pain and stiffness. A product called Glycomega Plus from Aroma NZ is extracted from green-lipped mussels (sometimes known as green-shelled mussels). It is a rich source of omega 3s and all major classes of glycosaminoglycans, which are the principle components of cartilage and the fluid found in joints that provide flexibility, elasticity and strength. The severity of arthritis is directly related to the loss of glycosaminoglycan content in the joint and surrounding cartilage.
