Discover the Top 8 Green Lipped Mussel Benefits by Ed Finn
You may be surprised by some of what you’ll find below. In fact, you’ve probably heard of just one or two of my top 8 green lipped mussel benefits. For some reason, much of what’s so amazing about these amazingly nutritious bivalves is not common knowledge.
Green Lipped Mussel Powder
Before I go ahead and talk about these 8 benefits, let’s make sure we’re on the same page. I’m talking about consuming mussel powder as a food supplement, in capsule form. Unless you’re fortunate enough to live in or near New Zealand, you’ll find it quite difficult to get these mussels fresh and alive, which is the only other way you can get all the health advantages they offer.
The thing about mussel powder is that it contains all the nutrients the mussels had to offer the moment they were harvested from the sea. To accomplish this, the green lips must be processed immediately upon harvest, within 30 minutes. There are only a handful of supplement suppliers who get this right. (I personally recommend Xtend-Life, not only for their great health products, but they are one of the most honest and ethical companies I’ve ever encountered.)
- Arthritis Chronic Pain Relief
Many people around the world appreciate and enjoy the relief from joint pain that mussel pills provide. This ability to relieve the aches and pains associated with rheumatoid arthritis is well known. In fact, for this attribute alone, many consider these all-natural, nutrition-filled capsules a miracle drug.
Almost equally well known as for its ability to fight joint pain is the fact that green lipped mussels are also a great way to ward off pain resulting from swelling and/or inflammation in general. This can help in dealing with some of the problems associated with heart disease, certain kinds of cancer, diabetes and many more conditions.
(Okay – here come some of the green lipped mussel benefits you may not know as much about . . .)
- Skin, Hair and Nails
Who doesn’t want to look young and attractive? One of the keys to this is a substance (actually, it’s something called a “microalgae”) called “Astaxanthin”, a fat-soluble type of antioxidant. This is important because astaxanthin enables the regeneration of your skin cells, a critical component to keeping that healthy glow. This extraordinary nutrient also protects your eyes from dangerous UV rays and your skin against sunburn.
- Heart and Circulation
Using mussel powder on an ongoing basis will help to make your interior arterial walls stronger and improve your blood flow. This, of course, goes directly to improved blood flow and heart attack prevention. Obviously, these are very positive benefits, making the consumption of green lipped mussel supplement a definite no-brainer (IMHO).
- Immunity System
This is the main area where the green lip’s powerful dose of antioxidants comes into play. I won’t go on about antioxidants and free radicals and body toxins here. Suffice it to say, keeping your immune system strong helps your body fight off bacterial and viral infections, obviously a good thing. A healthy immunity system also helps combat some really serious conditions, like cancer and heart disease. I would take Xtend-Life’s green lipped mussel powder even if this was the only benefit. Another no-brainer. Talk about green lipped mussel benefits!
- Teeth and Bones
The nutrients found in New Zealand’s green lipped mussel extract capsules do not have a direct connection to the health of your teeth and bones. They do, however, help a lot in strengthening the tissues surrounding and supporting your bones and teeth and keeping them healthy. You will notice the improvements.
- Nervous System
If you feel like you’re having a little more trouble handling stress recently, you’ll be glad to learn that green lipped mussel powder supports improved nerve cell function as it protects and enhances your whole nervous system. This is a kind of effect in which everyone should be interested, as being able to handle stress better can affect how you get through each and every day.
All the above and fertility too? I’m not kidding. It’s true. Studies have recently shown that certain of the constituents found in green lipped mussels play a big role in improving fertility in both men and women. This has to do with things like increasing seminal fluid viscosity and increasing cervical mucus, which I hereby deem beyond the scope of this little article. Suffice to say, if you’re looking to increase your fertility, start with green lipped mussels.
There you have it. I hope my list of the top 8 green lipped mussel benefits encourages you to do yourself a favor and look into checking out the additional information to be found on my new website that’s all about . . . you guessed it – green lipped mussel powder.
Your overall health will improve so much that you’ll find everything just seems to go more your way. Life will seem simpler. It’s all good.
