How green-lipped mussel oil impacts digestive health

Estimated Reading Time: 3 minutes

Part two of our exciting ‘Added Benefits’ series looks at how Green Lipped Mussel Oil helps the digestive system. This is one of the little-known benefits of GLX3. While the majority of our customers originally come to us for assistance with joint pain and inflammation caused by rheumatoid arthritis and osteoarthritis, they’re often pleasantly surprised to learn about the added perks of the product.

If you’re looking to get back to the activities you love doing, full-body health is likely important to you. Green-lipped mussel oil is full of antioxidants and healthy proteins, and it naturally digests into the body without added strain or effort. The real benefits are seen after ingestion, and the digestive tract is among the primary benefactors. Let’s start at the beginning.

What is the digestive tract?

From start to finish, the digestive system includes the mouth and esophagus, the stomach, and both the small and large intestine. Throughout a person’s life, medications and dietary choices can take their toll on the digestive system. A natural, healthy complete food such as green lipped mussel helps to keep these organs functioning properly.

But how?

Green Lipped Mussel Oil Helps Maintain Weight During Digestive Tract Inflammation

Inflammation doesn’t just occur in the joints, or in places visible to the naked eye. With age, many people suffer from inflammation in the digestive tract.

This can be caused by Inflammatory Bowel Disease (IBD) or other irritants to the digestive system. The result is slow, ineffective digestion. Eating is supposed to be an enjoyable experience, not a painful one!

These symptoms can also be incredibly frustrating because, as notes, there is little medical knowledge of exact causes of IBD other than genetics and problems in the immune system. Smoking can increase the risk of contracting IBD, but the disease has affected non-smokers and former smokers as well.

When the digestive system is not functioning properly, a number of side effects can occur, including weight gain. If the digestive system isn’t processing food properly, an individual is likely to experience everything from indigestion to weight gain.

Enter GLX3. Green lipped mussels produce what is known as a gastro-protective effect. This essentially means they help the body process foods instead of keeping extra calories sitting around, which triggers weight gain.

Green Lipped Mussel Oil Helps Protect Stomach Lining

Along those same lines, the mussel oil helps coat the stomach and keep it healthy.

One of the most common side effects of non-steroidal anti-inflammatory medicines is damage to the stomach lining. The gastro-protective effect of the green lipped mussel helps to offset this by strengthening the stomach lining and helping it to function properly.

Long-term users of anti-inflammatory medications are at a higher risk here. It is important that they take action to keep the stomach and digestive system healthy. GLX3 provides users with a one-stop source for digestive health as well as joint pain and inflammation. You won’t need to combine our product with any other supplements.


Green Lipped Mussel Oil Can Help Counteract The Effects Of Chemotherapy On The Digestive System

The radiation used in chemotherapy is a big part of a full-circle cancer treatment program. However, this radiation can be a major stressor to other parts of the body, including the gastrointestinal tract.

The same gastro-protection which green lipped mussels provide to the digestive system also helps keep these organs healthy during and following chemotherapy.


How GLX3 Fits Into The Picture

The oils found in green lipped mussels are rich in Omega-3s, which is where many of the health benefits of this complete food come from. As this series explains, there are a number of lesser-known positive effects of green lipped mussels beyond its common use for joint pain and inflammation.

We ship the product directly to your home. We can’t ship live mussels – that would be quite the process, and quite the scene upon arrival at your doorstep! The best way to preserve the nutrients and ship them to customers is by encapsulating the oil in pill form. This way, the Omega-3s are fully functional upon consumption. They digest quickly and get to work immediately.


Many users report feeling the benefits in as little as 60 days.


Taking action

You want to feel better and get back to doing the things you love. We want to help you get there. We’re so excited and confident about our incredible supplement that we have no problem offering a 100% No-Risk Promise: try GLX3 for 60 days, and if you haven’t noticed any difference, return the empty bottles for a full refund!

At GLX3, our Green Lipped Mussels are never frozen or heated, keeping all enzymes and nutrients alive.

GLX3 is the closest thing to a raw whole food! The lipids are extracted at room temperature with minimal pressure in order to naturally preserve all the powerful natural polar long chain fatty acids in their most natural state. (This is like extra virgin oil).
