Many women experience painful, dreaded cramping during ‘that time of the month.’ The quest for a natural remedy can be a painstaking process. None of us want to be popping a bunch of Aspirins and other lab-manufactured pills any more than we have to.

One option that often goes overlooked is Omega-3 supplements. The antioxidants in Omega-3 fatty acids are renowned for their anti-inflammatory capabilities, and for women, this can mean reducing the pain that often accompanies menstrual cramping. The Omega-3s found in New Zealand Green Lipped Mussels offer many benefits for women. Let’s take a look at what they are and how they can help.

 

What are Omega-3s?

Omega-3s are a kind of polyunsaturated fat that is a basic building block of a healthy lifestyle. They’re commonly used to treat joint pain and inflammation in arthritis sufferers and others with stiff or aching joints, commonly in pill form such as New Zealand Green Lipped Mussel Oil supplements.

This type of healthy fat (the opposite of trans fats and saturated fats) can offer benefits leading to better whole-body health, including sharper vision, stronger bones and joint tissue, and they may even be able to lower a person’s risk of heart disease.

It’s almost mind-boggling to think about how many side effects, including the pain resulting from menstrual cramps, can at least partially be tied to inflammation.

Unnatural toxins, from foods to air to electronics use, produce free radicals in the body. The result is higher levels of oxidation, which over time can lead to health issues such as inflammation. As noted in a number of studies, antioxidants offer protection against oxidative stress and can act as a sort of ‘superfood’ for overall health.

Basically, they get the body back to where it was before all these free radicals formed and started messing everything up.

Supplements are a convenient and easy way to add more Omega-3s into your daily routine. Other recommendations include eating more fresh vegetables and nuts. Diet is a big part of what causes oxidation in the body. But for those unable to make a direct diet overhaul, or who are just getting going with the process, an easy solution is Green Lipped Mussel Oil.

 

How can Omega-3s help menstrual pain?

The International Federation of Gynecology and Obstetrics, in their International Journal of Gynecology and Obstetrics, noted a study in which women, following 3 months of Omega-3 treatments, found that they needed less pain medication than those without the Omega-3 treatments during their period.

There are a number of ways to add more Omega-3s into your lifestyle. New Zealand Green Lipped Mussel Oil, the driving force in GLX3, is a safe and effective way to add Omega-3s into your diet both during menstrual cramps and throughout the remainder of the month. Adding this supplement to your diet can help you see the benefits we’ve noted here already, as well as a number of others.

 

Green Lipped Mussel Oil benefits for women

New Zealand Green Lipped Mussel Oil likewise delivers a number of health perks, far beyond just the monthly visit from Aunt Flow.

One thing we like to emphasize in regards to our supplement is that it is natural, and produced in a way that does not harm the environment, oceans, or species surrounding the farms. The mussels are raised on specialized farms by professionals, grown to optimum size while ensuring they remain free of toxins and harvested at their peak to ensure maximum impact in the supplement.

By extracting the oil from the mussels, we are able to deliver these health benefits to your doorstep. You receive the nutrients as if you’re eating the mussels raw, straight from the ocean. This is a good thing because when cooked, the mussels lose many of the nutrients that are essential to easing menstrual pain and reducing inflammation.

Another perk is that unlike salmon and other greasy fish in the ocean, New Zealand Green Lipped Mussels aren’t exposed to the levels of Mercury present in some parts of the oceans. They’re also grown in the region in which they originally evolved, meaning they naturally take in the vitamins and nutrients of the water that helped them develop as such a beneficial food source in the first place.

New Zealand’s native Maori were known to include Green Lipped Mussels as a regular part of their diet, and the health benefits helped them develop stronger bones and joints.

 

Whole nutrients, whole health

Omega-3 fatty acids can become an important part of your healthy diet. Our supplement combines New Zealand Green Lipped Mussel Oil with the best New Zealand Olive Oil and

The results are impressive. Improved joint comfort, pain relief, and as noted in our GLX3 Added Benefits Series, a number of other potential benefits. The best part? This is a natural, easy step to better health.

Green Lipped Mussel benefits for women are extensive, especially when the supplement is taken regularly for extended periods of time. It can take up to three months to really start seeing the benefits. Are you ready to start fighting back against menstrual pain?

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).
