Green Lipped FFA
Unique omega-3 sourced from New Zealand to support joint health*
- High in rare omega-3s ETA and SDA
- Provides better joint support than conventional fish oil
- Green-lipped mussel extract sourced from New Zealand
Green Lipped FFA is the fatty acid compound found in the New Zealand green-lipped mussel, which carries a unique profile of omega-3 fatty acids not found in traditional fish oil supplements. Our formula helps maintain healthy joints and mobility while supporting the body’s ability to naturally repair damaged cartilage, reduce joint discomfort, and offer support to those who are very active and/or play sports.
Joints are composed of cartilage, muscle, ligaments, and bone, and when neglected, they are susceptible to inflammatory diseases such as arthritis and bursitis, injuries and dislocations, all of which can cause discomfort, stiffness, and swelling. Aging and weight gain can also be factors that cause damage to joint cartilage. The most effective way of maintaining joint health is keeping bones, ligaments, tendons, and muscles strong. This can be achieved through a combination of exercise and a nutritional routine. Green Lipped FFA offers omega-3 fatty acids that support healthy joints.
AOR’s Green Lipped FFA contains both eicosatetraenoic acid (ETA) and stearidonic acid (SDA) which have been found to help improve joint comfort and mobility. In addition to this, Green Lipped FFA offers support for a proper inflammatory response to damage, at significantly lower doses than conventional fish oils extracts.
Green Lipped FFA is the stable free fatty acid extract of the New Zealand green-lipped mussel. This compound has a unique profile of omega-3 (ETA and SDA) and other fatty acids not found in significant amounts in standard fish oil supplements.*
