The Green Lipped Mussel is a unique, natural and sustainably-grown source of nutrients which has a number of uses and benefits.
It is the largest of the mussel family and is rich in omega-3 fatty acids, which can have the same anti-inflammatory effects as fish oil. We only extract the highest quality omega oils from the mussels and we have direct contact with individual farmers in for a natural and sustainable supply.
Fresh Green Lipped Mussel in New Zealand
The natural-goodness of the highest-quality Green Lipped Mussel, combined with our other key ingredients, has resulted in our top-selling dog joint supplements! Read on to find out more about the Green Lipped Mussel, why we use it and how it can help your furry-friend...
What is the Green Lipped Mussel and Why Do We Use It?
Named for the green hue at it’s edge, the Green Lipped Mussel is only found in the waters off New Zealand and is known as a super-food due to its health benefits. Full of amino acids, omega 3, vitamins, minerals and antioxidants. The Green Lipped Mussel is a powerful, natural joint soother. So although it has a pretty interesting smell, one you’d expect from dried mussel, the benefits mean the smell is a breeze (and dog’s love it, of course).

What are the benefits of the Green Lipped Mussel in dog supplements?
We humans are not the only ones who get joint stiffness, our four-legged friends feel it too and although there is magic wand for it, Green Lipped Mussels are a natural source that are key to effective joint help by aiding joint stiffness. So not only are you helping to alleviate their stiffness but you are also using natural sources.
The high levels of omega 3, glucosamine and chondroitin are not found in any other plant or marine life and make Green Lipped Mussels truly unique.
Why use YuMOVE?
Yes, you could just sprinkle Green Lipped Mussel extract on your dog’s food, but it just isn’t the most effective way to introduce natural dog supplements into their diet. Clinically proven to help support your dog’s joints in 6 weeks*, YuMOVE combines active ingredients with ActivEase Green Lipped Mussel creating an ethically sourced, human-grade dog supplement.
We at YuMOVE are dog lovers and understand that not all dogs are the same and that applies to supplements too. What makes YuMOVE special is that we understand one product does not fit all. The YuMOVE range varies from puppies to working dogs and all the way to those who need chewable supplements.
Why do we add additional Glucosamine, Hyaluronic Acid and Maganese to YuMOVE?
Green Lipped Mussel (GLM) is super effective but with YuMOVE we wanted to make sure that we provided a joint supplement that supports the joint completely. So we have added high strength glucosamine for joint support, along with maganese, and hyaluronic acid to help lubricate and cushion the joint. YuMOVE promotes natural replenishment of joint tissue, supporting cartilage, tendons and ligaments whilst lubricating and cushioning your dog’s joints.
Where do we source the Green Lipped Mussel from?
We only use the best ingredients. That’s why we only purchase Green Lipped Mussels from the best farmers in New Zealand, harvested in peak condition and extracted in unique vacuum extraction to make sure they contain four times as much active omega 3. They are also manufactured and tested to our highest standards.
