What is the Green Lipped Mussel and why do we use it in our pet supplements?
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 health benefits of the Green Lipped Mussel in Yumove dog supplements?
We humans are not the only ones who get joint stiffness, our four-legged friends feel it too and although there is no 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 do we add additional Glucosamine, Hyaluronic Acid and Maganese to YuMOVE supplements?
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.
