The description below will give you a better understanding of how Green-Lipped Mussel supports joint function.
Numerous human, animal and laboratory studies have been conducted on green-lipped mussel (GLM). While not all of these studies have found a significant effect, a newly published review study, which analyzed the results of four randomized controlled human clinical trials, found that "all four single centred studies reported positive clinical improvement for GLM over a clinically relevant period of at least 2 months..."
Two studies in particular were singled out as being particularly rigorous in design and statistical analysis.
One study, published in 2004, is the largest clinical trial conducted on green-lipped mussel to date. Half of the subjects were randomly assigned to take green-lipped mussel; the other half received placebo. The study was double-blind in design, meaning neither the participants nor the researchers who knew was receiving the active treatment and who was getting the placebo. Each group took their respective pills for six months. At the study's end, two significant differences were apparent between the groups. First, people taking green-lipped mussel experienced a noticeable decrease in joint discomfort. And second, when asked to rate on a global assessment scale how their joints felt, those in the green-lipped mussel group consistently reported feeling better than those in the placebo group.
Another study, published in 1998, was also double-blind in design, except this time the researchers compared the efficacy of a lipid extract of green-lipped mussel versus a stabilized mussel powder. After three months, the results showed that both preparations were effective in helping to alleviate joint tenderness, reduce joint discomfort, support joint function and increase morning flexibility. Both the doctors and the subjects themselves reported an improvement in joint health after taking green-lipped mussel compared to pre-treatment.
Several studies in dogs have found similar results, with dogs receiving green-lipped mussel showing improvements in mobility and discomfort compared to dogs either receiving placebo or no treatment at all. Sometimes these results were observed in as little as six weeks.
How does it work? Green-lipped mussel contains novel Omega-3 fatty acids that appear to block the activity two potentially destructive enzymes: lipoxygenase and cyclooxygenase.

Many chronic health conditions are preventable. They result from years of poor eating habits, lack of exercise, or prolonged exposure to stress. Some have become so common that they do not even remember what good health feels like. Now leading health organizations now tell us that by returning to a healthier lifestyle - by getting the right nutrients, becoming active, and learning to manage the stressors in life - many of these conditions can be prevented, managed, or even reversed. Why can't theyr address all health problems and bodily challenges medically? The question has become a central topic in many leading publications. But the answer is fairly obvious: Western medicine is organized around acute illness, not long-term health.
"The US health care system is still largely designed to treat patients with acute medical problems.... 'At no point in medical school are physicians exposed to patients with chronic illness, except for acute episodes leading to hospitalization,' says Michael Lockshin, MD, a Harvard Medical School graduate and head of the women and rheumatic disease center at New York City Hospital for Special Surgery. "The result: Many patients shuffle from doctor to doctor in search of relief from many complications of their chronic illnesses. On average, people with one chronic condition see three different physicians and fill seven prescriptions a year, according to Partnership for Solutions, a research group at Johns Hopkins University in Baltimore.
People with five or more chronic conditions make 12 physician visits and fill 50 prescriptions a year.... "Chronic diseases are now the leading cause of disability and death in the United States, with seven in 10 deaths each year attributed to such illnesses as cancer, heart diseases, diabetes and stroke. About 133 million Americans - nearly one in two adults - live with at least one chronic disease, and more than one in 10 have three or more.... "'The present medical model has ignored many of the issues - pain, fatigue, anger - that interfere with people's lives,' says Nancy Whitelaw, Ph.D, NCOA senior vice president. 'Until their care system focuses on improved health for people with chronic conditions, they will never get a handle on skyrocketing costs.
