Food Supplement containing Green Lipped Mussel with Vitamin C for both Dogs and Cats.
The Green Lipped Mussel differs from other mussel species in that it has a dark brown/green shell, a green lip around the edge of the shells and only has one abductor muscle. It is also one of the largest mussel species growing up to 240mm in length.
As the mussels are natural sea-water filters, they retain a huge number of potent nutrients and minerals such as:
- Omega-3 fatty acids
- Vitamins and minerals such as zinc, copper, iodine, and manganese among others
- Amino acids
- Glucosamine and chondroitin
Many pet owners know how vital omega 3 oils can be to their pets health and especially their joints and many owners incorporate fish oils into their dogs diet. While Fish Oil has only 2 kinds of omega-3 fatty acids, Green lipped mussels supply a third one called ETA. This is a rare form of Omega-3 fatty acid which lowers the production of cyclooxygenase, an enzyme which causes inflammation. With less inflammation this results in less pain, better range of motion and improved mobility for your pet. Green lipped mussels are also a rich source of natural glucosamine, chondoitin, Vitamins C and E and minerals such as Copper, Zinc and selenium which are all vital to your dogs health and functionality.
Giving your dog or cat a Green Lipped Mussel supplement will help them in the following ways:
- It is a natural anti-inflammatory
- It reduces joint pain and protects the cartilage
- It boosts your pet’s immunity
- It strengthens the bones
- It prevents the development of arthritis in your four-legged friend
- It increases skin and fur strength and health giving your dog a beautiful shiny and healthy coat
Vitamin C contributes to normal collagen formation for the normal function of bones and cartilage.
This supplement has the added benefit of Vitamin C which also has a myriad of other benefits. It contributes to the normal function of the immune system and is an antioxidant which contributes to the protection of cells from oxidative stress. It also aids in normal collagen formation for the normal function of blood vessels, gums, skin and teeth, the reduction of tiredness and fatigue in muscles and helps in their recovery.
