Blackmores LYPRINOL is an anti-inflammatory supplement that contains a unique patented marine lipid extract of greenlipped mussel. There are countless species of mussels all over the world; however it is only the fatty acid extract from the greenlipped mussel (Perna canaliculus) that contains this unique group of fatty acids.
The species of green-lipped mussel used in LYPRINOL is found in the waters of New Zealand. Research into its therapeutic properties was prompted by fi ndings that the reported incidence of arthritis is extremely low in coastal-dwelling Maoris, who consume large amounts of green-lipped mussels, whereas Maoris who reside in the interior have the same incidence of arthritis as New Zealanders of European origin.
LYPRINOL may help to reduce infl ammation and swelling by inhibiting the action of the enzymes involved in infl ammatory pathways (called the LOX and COX pathways). Studies have found LYPRINOL helps to relieve joint pain, joint tenderness and morning stiffness of arthritis. Joint function was also noted to improve.
