Green-lipped mussel powder and green-lipped mussel extract are green-lipped mussel powders that are obtained from the green-lipped mussel (Perna canaliculus). This type of mussel comes from New Zealand. The two forms differ in terms of processing and their components:

Full-fat quality green-lipped mussel powder:
Full-fat quality green-lipped mussel powder is made by drying whole green-lipped mussels and then grinding them into powder. It contains all components of the mussel, including proteins, omega-3 fatty acids (e.g. EPA and DHA), vitamins, minerals, and glycosaminoglycans such as chondroitin sulfate. Full fat means that the mussel's natural fats are retained in the powder.

Green-lipped mussel extract:
In contrast to full-fat powder, when producing green-lipped mussel extract, a specific component or group of components, here the fat, is specifically extracted from the green-lipped mussel. This is often done using solvents or other processes aimed at obtaining a more concentrated form of a specific ingredient such as glycosaminoglycans. This can increase the concentration of certain components, while other components of the mussel may be less represented or absent.

The green mussel powder in full-fat quality is the premium product with a high fat content that will benefit your pet.
What is green lipped mussel powder and how is it made?

Green-lipped mussel powder is a feed supplement obtained from the green-lipped mussel (Perna canaliculus). To produce it, the mussels are dried and ground into a fine powder. This powder contains the natural ingredients of mussels, including fats, proteins, vitamins and minerals. The full-fat quality powder retains the mussel's natural fats.

What are glycosaminoglycans and what does it have to do with green-lipped mussel powder?

Glycosaminoglycans are complex sugar compounds that occur naturally in body tissue, especially cartilage and synovial fluid. They are essential components for the construction and maintenance of cartilage and other connective tissue. They are found in green-lipped mussel powder and are valued for supporting agility and enjoyment of movement.

Is green-lipped mussel powder toxic to dogs and cats?

Green-lipped mussel powder is non-toxic to dogs and cats when administered in appropriate amounts. It is often used as a supplement to support exercise. However, a veterinarian should be consulted before administering supplements, also to determine any allergies or food intolerances.

What is the historical context of the Latin name Perna Canaliculus?

The Latin name "Perna canaliculus" was coined in the 18th century by the Danish zoologist Otto Friedrich Müller. Müller's classification was based on anatomical features of the shell, with "Perna" meaning "leg" or "shell" and "canaliculus" referring to the characteristic grooved or canal-like structure on the edges of the shell. The green-lipped mussel has thus been named for its unique physical shape, which has made its identification easier and at the same time contributed to its naming in the scientific community.

Why is full-fat green-lipped mussel powder more expensive than green-lipped mussel extract?

The full-fat green-lipped mussel powder retains all the natural oils and nutrients of the green-lipped mussel. This can be a more elaborate manufacturing process that incorporates the original combination of all these components, thereby providing a more extensive range of nutrients. An extract, on the other hand, can represent an isolated form of a specific ingredient and can be obtained through processes that aim to specifically concentrate specific ingredients, which can be cheaper. The full-fat quality therefore reflects a manufacturing process in which the completeness of the nutrient profile is the focus. The more comprehensive and gentler processing of the full-fat powder results in higher production costs. Therefore, a price difference is essential and particularly cheap offers are not serious if a quality product is to be purchased.

What is green mussel powder traditionally used for?

Green mussel powder traditionally has its origins among the indigenous Maori of New Zealand, who have been using it as part of their diet long before it was discovered by the Western world. They believed in the strengthening and beneficial properties of mussels. In the Western world, green mussel powder is used primarily in the area of ​​nutritional supplements for humans as well as supplements for pets. It is primarily used to promote well-being and, based on reports, may have a supportive effect on joint function, particularly in older animals.

Does green-lipped mussel powder for dogs and cats help with osteoarthritis and osteoarthritis?

As a supplementary feed, green-lipped mussel powder is often advertised as being able to alleviate the symptoms of joint diseases such as osteoarthritis and osteoarthritis. However, it is important to emphasize that such supplements should not be considered a treatment for serious health problems. They can only serve as part of a holistic approach to support the joy of exercise and the intake must be coordinated with your trusted veterinarian. We distance ourselves from promises of healing or health-related statements that are not permitted for supplementary feed, more precisely a single feed for dogs and cats.

Can a natural product like the green-lipped mussel be used as a pain reliever for joint diseases such as osteoarthritis?

While natural products such as green-lipped mussel powder can have supporting properties for movement and agility, they are not a replacement for medical painkillers prescribed by a veterinarian. What they can offer is a complementary measure that could be part of a comprehensive management of joint diseases. The assessment of the disease and the use of remedies to strengthen or promote it is the responsibility of a veterinary specialist who will provide you with comprehensive advice. We distance ourselves from promises of healing or health-related claims for feed that only serve to support agility and vitality.

Why are glycosaminoglycans good for my dog ​​and cat?

According to veterinary medicine, glycosaminoglycans play a central role in the formation and maintenance of cartilage tissue. They help ensure that the cartilage remains elastic and has shock-absorbing properties, which is said to be essential for healthy and pain-free joint movements.

Due to their negative charge, glycosaminoglycans have the ability to bind water. As a result, they increase the turgor, the wall pressure of a plant cell, and the elasticity of the tissues or serve as a biological "lubricant". They enable the rapid passage of hydrophilic substances, but at the same time limit the movement of larger particles (bacteria).

Glycosaminoglycans form essential components of connective tissue, which includes tendons, tendon sheaths, ligaments, joint capsules, articular cartilage and synovial fluid. They contribute to the mechanical strength of the cartilage and at the same time act as a transport route for nutrients and waste products between the cells of the connective tissue and the bloodstream. A reduction in glycosaminoglycan concentration, which can occur due to injury, chronic changes such as osteoarthritis, excessive stress or as part of the natural aging process, impairs these essential functions. This can result in reduced stability in joints, cartilage, ligaments and tendons.
