Green lipped mussel for dogs
The green-lipped mussel is one of the mussels. Its habitat is in the sea around New Zealand, where it is now also bred in large aquacultures. Green lipped mussels are not only used as food, but also as dietary supplements in dried and powdered form.
The green-lipped mussel as a food supplement for dogs
Green lipped mussels are now increasingly used as ingredients in dietary supplements for dogs. The reason for this use is the glycosaminoglycans contained in them.
Glycosaminoglycans are amino sugar compounds that are found especially in the synovial fluid. Green lipped mussels also contain valuable omega-3 fatty acids, proteins and various minerals such as magnesium.
Effect of green-lipped mussels as food supplements
Glycosaminoglycans alone are not sufficient
It is certainly true that glycosaminoglycans are an important component of synovial fluid. And dietary supplements containing green-lipped mussels can, to some extent, help reduce discomfort.
However, such a preparation alone is not enough to improve joint health in the long term. Because on the one hand the joints consist not only of joint fluid and on the other hand they need still another set of further nutrients, which do not supply them green-lip mussels unfortunately.

Auxilium Salutis for dogs with joint pain
If your dog suffers from pain as a result of his joint problems, a suitable pain therapy is usually advisable. Auxilium Salutis can be a good alternative if you want to avoid strong medication and its side effects.
Auxilium Salutis is a five percent CBD oil for dogs. The cannabidiol (CBD) it contains has enjoyed great popularity for some time and is used successfully in pain therapy and the treatment of inflammatory diseases.
Combine Auxilium Salutis with Bellfor Joints & Bones and support the therapy of your dog's joint problems with natural products that do not cause any side effects.
