Green Lipped Mussel farm in New Zealand for YuMove Pet Supplements

A guide to Green Lipped Mussels for your dog

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).

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 are the health benefits of the Green Lipped Mussel in YuMOVE Joint Care 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, making Green Lipped Mussels truly unique.

Why use YuMOVE supplements with Green Lipped Mussels?

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, these ingredients include:

  • Green Lipped Mussel provides a super concentrated source of Omega 3 fatty acids which helps to soothe stiff joints
  • N-Acetyl-D Glucosamine a fast-acting provider of the major building blocks of cartilage for extra support in the tough connective tissue that protects joints
  • Manganese helps to support the cartilage, tendons and ligaments buy encouraging collagen formation
  • Hyaluronic Acid aids lubrication and cushioning of the joint
  • Vitamins C and E which neutralise free radicals helping to maintain joint mobility

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 Manganese, and Hyaluronic Acid to help lubricate and cushion the joint.

YuMOVE Joint Care 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.
