Tom’s Green Mussel has been found useful for the following conditions:
• Osteoarthritis (degenerative joint disease)
• Rheumatoid Arthritis
• Bursitis
• Ankylosing Spondylitis
• Sports Related Injuries
• Lyme Disease
• Inflammatory Skin Conditions
• Connective Tissue Repair

Tom’s Green Mussel provides a formula of natural chondroprotective agents, anti-infl ammatory, and analgesic factors that enhances the relief of symptoms and at the same time promotes the repair and healing of arthritic and injured joints.
Used for Humans and Pets, Tom’s Green Mussel is found to have beneficial effects in relieving the pain, inflammation, and symptoms associated with connective tissue and degenerate joint disorders.

The main benefit of consuming green mussel is the high concentration of omega-3 fatty acids. According to the Center for Genetics, Nutrition and Health, omega-3 fatty acids can be beneficial in the treatment of inflammatory diseases and autoimmune disorders such as rheumatoid arthritis. There was also a study performed by the University of Helsinki in Finland which revealed the components of green lipped mussels were an effective treatment for chronic pain associated with osteoarthritis in dogs.

In a recent study, Arthritis sufferers had pain and stiffness relieved by more than 30 per cent using an extract from green lipped mussels, say researchers.
A spokesman for medical research charity Arthritis Research UK said: “Although we don’t really understand how green-lipped mussel works, we do know that extracts contain omega-3 fatty acids, amino acids, minerals and carbohydrates. Omega-3 fatty acids are important for maintaining cell structure and function, so this could explain how and why it works in some people.”

In a study published in Rheumatology conducted at the Rheumatology Clinic at the Wroclaw Medical University Hospital , patients with pain symptoms related to osteoarthritis showed more improvement from Green Mussel than they did from Fish Oil.
Numerous clinical studies have shown that both Perna canaliculus oil (Green-lipped mussel is a nutritional supplement taken from perna canaliculus, a bivalve mussel native to New Zealand) and fish oil have anti-inflammatory activity that can reduce pain and improve joint mobility for patients who suffer from osteoarthritis.  The Mickleborough studies observed that fish oil requires larges doses over a longer period of time compared to using green mussel to reduce inflammatory markers.
