There’s something magical about things you can only find in certain parts of the world. Authenticity, for one — no matter how many places you travel, you’ll never find pollo en mole as good as you can find it in Oaxaca, Mexico. The journey to get it is often equally rewarding., Think about the last time you took a big trip — what was it that stands out? Likely, some of the best memories involve the adventure of finding yourself somewhere new.

The road to a healthy, pain-free lifestyle is similar. Reducing joint pain and inflammation doesn’t happen overnight, but by being disciplined and staying focused, you CAN keep doing the things you love well into older ages. That is the Haka Life Warrior way.

At GLX3, we’re all about this wanderlust. In fact, we’ve built our legacy on it, sourcing an effective Omega-3 supplement from the other side of the world and shipping it straight to your doorstep. 

Part of that mystique plays a major role in the effectiveness of Green Lipped Mussels in keeping joints healthy — they grow only off the coast of New Zealand.

Our supplement can be part of your journey. Let’s look at the bioactive properties of New Zealand Green Lipped Mussels to see why, and then we’ll dive into the benefits you can experience along the way.

Warning — this could turn into one heck of an adventure!

 

Inflammation-fighting compounds in the New Zealand Green Lipped Mussel

Omega-3 fatty acids

Omega-3’s are the champion of GLX3’s inflammation-fighting capabilities. Working throughout the body to reduce joint pain and inflammation, these essential fatty acids cannot be produced by the body itself — therefore, you must get your recommended dosage from an outside source.

At GLX3, we source 100% of our Green Lipped Mussel Oil from the eastern shores of New Zealand, where they are grown naturally and sustainably. We blend the mussel oil with fresh New Zealand Olive Oil and Vitamin E oil to provide an added boost. While Omega-3s tend to steal the show, there are two other inflammation-fighting powerhouses in the mussels themselves.

 

Chondroitin

Chondroitin is a booster of both joint fluid and cartilage, ensuring both are maintained to optimal function. It’s part of the human connective tissue and is found in cartilage and bone. They’re thought to rebuild joint tissue. A study cited by Arthritis.org found that a Chondroitin Sulfate supplement helped patients with osteoarthritis reduce pain, while another study referenced in the article showed neutral results.

With the Chondroitin that naturally occurs in Green Lipped Mussel Oil, you won’t have to worry about whether or not a Chondroitin-specific supplement is effective. In GLX3, you’re getting it in its natural form, where it works alongside other active ingredients like Glycosaminoglycans to prevent joint pain.

 

Glycosaminoglycans

We’re not going to ask to say the word Glycosaminoglycans. In fact, you don’t even need to remember it. These cartilage components are commonly known as GAGs, and as we noted above, work alongside Chondroitin to keep joints functioning smoothly even as a person ages. But where Chondroitin regenerates joint tissue, GAGs help to replace the elasticity lost during the aging process.

As a person gets older, their joints wear and tear. This causes them to become dry and less tender, amplified by the loss of joint fluid. GAGs are a natural way to work against that process, and you’ll find them naturally in every bottle of GLX3.

 

Benefits of Green Lipped Mussel Oil Supplements

Here on the GLX3 blog, we dive deep into all things related to joint health. Green Lipped Mussel Oil can offer an array of health benefits even beyond the joints, however, and we’ve broken down those benefits for you as well. (See here for our full guide to the Added Benefits of Green Lipped Mussel Oil). Among the key findings:

What the studies say

Our research team has compiled a hefty list of evidence-based studies showing the proven benefits of Green Lipped Mussels in fighting inflammation. We’re most excited by a 2017 US National Library of Medicine Study that flat-out demonstrates how the process works, using the three ingredients we use in GLX3: Green Lipped Mussel Oil, Olive Oil, and Vitamin E. In science talk, the study found that the formula “down-regulated the release of pro-inflammatory cytokines,” in short, it suppressed inflammation and that the mussel oil itself “was responsible for anti-inflammatory efficacy.”

We recommend trying GLX3 for at least 60 days in order for noticeable benefits to set in. By combining our supplement with your health-first lifestyle, you’re fast-tracking your path to getting back to what you love — whatever that may be. 

And that is the true Hake LifeWarrior way.

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).
