When we think of our overall health and wellness, we tend to forget a vital part of the functioning of our bodies: our joints. Each joint is 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 pain, stiffness, swelling, and inflammation. Aging and weight gain can also be factors that cause damage and wear to our joint cartilage.

The most effective way of maintaining our joint health is keeping bones, ligaments, tendons, and muscles strong. This can be achieved through a combination of exercise and a nutritional routine. That’s where GREEN LIPPED FFA™ comes in, offering omega-3 fatty acids that support healthy joints.

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.

Studies have shown that this extract is effective in supporting a proper inflammatory response to damage, since both eicosatetraenoic acid (ETA) and stearidonic acid (SDA) have been found to help improve joint comfort and mobility. In addition to this, GREEN LIPPED FFA™ offers more potent benefits at significantly lower doses than conventional fish oils extracts.

Discussion

GREEN LIPPED FFA™ is the stable free fatty acid extract of the New Zealand green-lipped mussel. This compound contains a unique profile of omega-3 and other fatty acids not found in significant amounts in standard fish oil supplements. Studies show that the use of this unique fatty acid extract results in physiological effects more effectively than conventional fish oils.*
