Recover your Mobility with New Zealand Green Lipped Mussel Powder

The powerful combination of natural and nutrient-dense ingredients in Green Lipped Mussel Powder can help relieve pain and inflammation and help to get you back on the move again.



Manage Joint Pain and Inflammation

Contains anti-inflammatory nutrients that can help manage painful swelling and stiffness by reducing joint inflammation.1,2


Increase Movement and Support Cartilage Repair

The rich compounds in green lipped mussels work to help lubricate joints and supply the raw materials for the body to rebuild cartilage.3,4

Cardiovascular Health

Improve Quality of Life

The benefits go beyond joint pain. Research has shown green lipped mussels promote heart, gut and lung health as well as boosting immunity.5

Natural Inflammation Management

Green Lipped Mussel Powder is internationally recognized for its powerful inflammation management properties.

Sourced from New Zealand, our high strength, 100% pure powder offers 2,400mg of Green Lipped Mussel powder - a higher concentration than many other Green Lipped Mussel supplements. Packed with nutrients, vitamins, minerals and Omega-3’s, this natural superfood promotes healthy joint and cartilage function to help keep you moving, with ease.



Green Lipped Mussel Powder is a 100% natural supplement, sourced from the remote and unpolluted waters of New Zealand.



Xtend-life Green Lipped Mussel Powder is derived from mussels harvested under strict conditions to ensure sustainability, safety and traceability.



Arguably one of nature’s most complete whole foods, Green Lipped Mussels contain an abundance of vitamins, minerals, proteins and Omega 3 fatty acids, all of which combine to have a beneficial effect on connective tissue, cartilage and joint health.


The Cycle of Joint Health

Our bodies undergo a constant cycle of being broken down and rebuilt – joints are no exception.

A type of cell called chondrocytes are responsible for manufacturing cartilage in our joints, and the compounds in Green Lipped Mussel include Omega 3s and glycosaminoglycans, also referred to GAGs or the “glue of life”. These work with chondrocytes to manage pain and inflammation, channel the activity away from degradation towards a focus on repair and to provide the raw materials to rebuild cartilage.

Maintain Joints

The GAGs in green lipped mussel increase the lubrication in the joints and work to bring water into the tissue as a shock absorber, leading to easier everyday movement.

Manage Inflammation

When a joint problem happens, inflammation follows. Green lipped mussels contain anti-inflammatory GAGs to help manage pain and swelling.

Rebuild Cartilage

Green lipped mussel contributes glucosamine, chondroitin and many of the other raw materials the chondrocytes need to rebuild cartilage.

Promote Repair

GAGs influence a shift in chondrocyte activity from breaking down collagen to a repair and rebuilding mode.

    Love this product

    I’ve had my senior dog on this product and it’s made such a difference in her wellbeing and energy level. It’s important to buy green lipped mussels that are cold processed for efficacy of the product. I researched various brands and found that this brand does cold processing.

    Works Wonders

    I've been getting the Green Lipped Sea Mussel for many years through Xtendlife for my senior dog's and it's worked wonders for them. Now I've been taking it too as I have both shoulders frozen and severe arthritis in my back. When I wasn't taking it, I was in pain 24/7 and the pain was constant. Now that I'm taking it as well as my senior dog's, I don't have that constant pain anymore. Every once in a while the pain comes back but not as severe. 1 time I forgot to reorder and OMG, the pain, so now I'm making sure I don't run out. Thank You Xtendlife for making this possible to order. I raise German, German Shepherds and I've told my clients about this and the one's that have senior dog's have put them on it as well.
