Omega-3 fatty acids are essential fats that your body gets from the foods and supplements that you put into it. Omega-3s play critical roles in your health, but your body cannot produce them on its own. 

There are several types of omega-3s. EPA and DHA are the two most important ones to get from animal foods, such as green-lipped mussels. Other animal foods that are rich in omega-3s include eggs, salmon, sardines, tuna, tilapia, anchovies, caviar, shrimp, and trout. Plant-based foods that contain ALA, another category of omega-3 fatty acids, include avocado, soybeans, walnuts, chia seeds, flax seeds, hemp seeds, and kidney beans. 

Because it can be challenging to get an optimal amount of omega-3s from your diet (as most of us simply do not consume a perfect diet), you can benefit from taking in a higher amount of EPA and DHA by adding a supplement to your daily routine. While there are many types of omega-3 supplements–fish oil, krill oil, cod liver oil, and algae oil, for example–there is one that stands out for its omega-3 content and bioavailability: GLX3

Why is GLX3 the most efficient mechanism for omega-3 intake?

You may know how much EPA/DHA you are consuming, but do you know how much of it is actually benefiting you? Even if you are taking a supplement that’s high in omega-3s, it isn’t doing you any good if your body cannot access and use the fatty acids. This conundrum explains why it’s so critical to ask the right questions. Instead of asking, “How much omega-3 does my supplement contain?” you should be wondering, “How bioavailable is the omega-3 in my supplement?” 

The first thing you should know is that green-lipped mussel oil simply contains more of the fatty acids that make up omega-3. Not only do green-lipped mussels contain EPA and DHA, as is the case with fish oil, but they also contain ETA–a fatty acid exclusive to these special mussels. ETA may offer your body unique benefits or contribute to the synergy of other fatty acids, working together to produce the health benefits that you’re looking for– in both cases, green-lipped mussel oil offers advantages that you won’t find in any other supplement. 

Another factor to consider concerns the way that your body processes green-lipped mussel oil compared to fish oil. The omega-3 in GLX3 is far more bioavailable than what you find in fish oil. That’s why it is possible to deliver a much larger dose of bioavailable omega-3s in a smaller pill. 

When you take fish oil, your body must convert it into a form that it can use. However, your body is only about 10% efficient in performing this conversion—most of the omega-3 in fish oil ultimately gets flushed away as waste. The omega-3 in GLX3 is nearly 100% bioavailable already, which means that a smaller dose of GLX3 is many times more potent than a large dose of fish oil

What is Green-Lipped Mussel Oil?

We’ve talked a lot about the bioavailability of green-lipped mussel oil and why that characteristic makes it a better choice than other supplements such as fish oil and krill oil. Your next question is probably, what exactly is green-lipped mussel oil?

Green-lipped mussels are native to the New Zealand coastline, and they are a staple in the diets of the indigenous Maori people. These mussels, which feature a bright green stripe around the edge of their shells, became the focus of extensive research when scientists discovered the low incidence of arthritis in coastal Maoris–a much lower rate of the inflammatory disease than what they found in inland Maoris. 

Quickly, researchers began investigating how to produce a supplement that would make green-lipped mussels available to as many people as possible. Today, many people have already benefited from this great alternative or addition to traditional arthritis medications such as NSAIDs (nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs). GLX3 can offer some of the same advantages without the side effects, a factor that more and more people are seeking out as they become frustrated with the issues associated with OTC and prescription pain medications. 

How does green-lipped mussel oil compare with other natural sources of omega-3? 

There are many natural food sources of omega-3s, and it’s a great idea to include these options in your regular diet. Omega-3 fatty acids are key to minimizing inflammation throughout the body. Because they reduce inflammation so well, they can help to prevent or improve a variety of inflammation-related conditions, including arthritis, type 2 diabetes, heart disease, and asthma. 

If you are trying to reduce inflammation, then you should be taking an omega-3 supplement, even if you do eat plenty of omega-3-rich foods each day. An extra dose of EPA/DHA and other omega-3s may help you to achieve your wellness goals, such as less pain and a better range of movement. 

GLX3 is a concentrated source of the omega-3s found naturally in green-lipped mussels. Inside our capsules, you’ll find just three ingredients: green-lipped mussel oil, olive oil, and vitamin E oil. We have handpicked these functional, safe, and natural ingredients to give you the best quality and performance possible in your supplement. We never use any fillers or additives–a fact that also sets us apart from many of the fish oils and other omega-3 supplements that you’ll find in stores. 

For optimal health, it’s essential for everyone to eat a healthy diet that is rich in foods containing omega-3 fatty acids. However, if you can’t include as many of these foods as you would like–and if you want to avoid or reduce inflammation–then be sure to stock up on GLX3 today. Try it for a month, save on a three- or six-month supply, or save even more on a special subscription price and receive your supply of GLX3 every three months. 

If you’re looking for the most impactful, potent, bioavailable source of omega-3s, try GLX3 now. Take control of your health and well-being and say goodbye to joint pain with green-lipped mussel oil, the future of anti-inflammatory supplements.

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).
