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.
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.
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.
As you probably know, our goal at Bellfor is to help you maintain a healthy diet for your dog. In addition to our range of high quality dog food, we also do this with our dog food supplements.
Especially for joint health we have developed the product Bellfor Joints & Bones. This is a natural dietary supplement from Ovopet. Ovopet is derived from the eggshell membrane of chicken eggs and contains around 500 different active ingredients.
Studies have shown that this unique combination of active ingredients makes Ovopet particularly effective.
Bellfor Joints & Bones is the perfect nutritional supplement to prevent age-related wear and tear on joints, counteract the high stresses on the musculoskeletal system in sports dogs and reduce the risk of joint disease or support its treatment.
But the best way to convince yourself is to test Bellfor Joints & Bones on your dog.
