Green-mussel extract reduces joint inflammation: study

Added by on March 25, 2012

A study by a major university found green lipped mussel extract has highly anti-inflammatory properties making it the best joint supplement to relieve the pain and discomfort from inflamed joints and arthritis.

“The study found the age of the person or the time that they have experienced joint pain don’t have any significance with regard to how successful the treatment is. It’s been noted over years of experience that some really severe cases of long duration have responded almost 100% and full relief of symptoms has been achieved. Conversely, there have been mild cases for which the extract has been used in the early stages with only moderate success – being a natural supplement, it does produce different results on different people,” said a spokesperson.

The study revealed the Green-mussel extract was able to relieve pain, modulate cytokines with a decrease in cytokines associated with inflammation, and reduced the amount of proteins related to inflammation, making green lipped mussel extract an option for controlling osteoarthritis and other forms of joint inflammation.

“Unfortunately, not all green lipped mussel extracts are made equal. Due to the quality of the mussels and the manufacturing methods used, cheaper products are usually inferior products. Xtend-Life Green Lipped Mussel Powder as the purest and most potent green lipped mussel extract on the market,” said a spokesperson.
