What is Green Lipped Mussel Powder?
Pure Green Lipped Mussel Powder is a 100% natural supplement, sourced from the remote and unpolluted waters of New Zealand.
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.
Xtend-life Green Lipped Mussel Powder is derived from mussels harvested under strict conditions to ensure sustainability, safety and traceability. These mussels are then opened in cold water using a proprietary technique to optimally preserve the product’s beneficial properties.
Why do I need it?
The ability to move with ease is something we take for granted when we have it – and suffer immensely when it’s gone. When life’s simple pleasures, like going to the gym, biking, walking or performing daily tasks results in painful, aching joints we naturally start to curtail our activities. Furthermore, if inflammation becomes chronic it can lead to a whole host of health problems and seriously affect our overall wellbeing.
The proven, powerful and all-natural Xtend-Life Green Lipped Mussel Powder works to support your joint health, reduce everyday aches and pains, and help to keep you mobile as you age.
How does Green Lipped Mussel Powder work?
Packed with beneficial bioactive ingredients, the remarkable results attributed to Green Lipped Mussels are largely due to two key components:
Glycosaminoglycans, also referred to GAGs or the “glue of life”, play a vital role in the health of cartilage, tendons, skin and connective tissue. As we age, we lose precious GAGs and our cartilage becomes drier, thinner and more brittle. The GAGs found in Green Lipped Mussel Powder help us to regain the elasticity within our connective tissue and maintain supple, healthy joints.
Omega-3 Fatty Acids provide a range of natural benefits, one of which is to replenish the moisture in our cartilage. This in turn supports inflammation management, eases discomfort and promotes joint mobility.
This product is 100% green-lipped mussel powder. There are no fillers present.
Xtend-Life’s Green Lipped Mussel Powder is a natural product from selected mussels cultured in the pristine waters of New Zealand. To ensure optimal benefits, these unique mussels are processed at low temperatures while fresh to ensure that all of the valuable fractions of the mussels are preserved.
The Green Lipped Mussel (Perna canaliculus) is a species found nowhere else in the world. An environmental focus and strict regulations enable us to deliver a product of exceptional quality. Green Lipped Mussels are an exceptional whole-food, packed with valuable nutrients.

It's when you stop taking this supplement that you start to feel how well they work.
I found it to help somewhat with my arthritis. But, I have severe advanced osteoarthritis, so I would probably have to take for at least 6 months to see a difference.
Myself and my dog both take the Mussel Powder!!
We have used it for 10 years for our dogs to help with joint mobility. Don’t know if it makes any difference but we keep using it just in case!
It seems to be working very well
