What People Don't Know About Green Lipped Mussel Cream

Updated on June 21, 2014

You can find green lipped mussel(GLM) supplements everywhere. It is packed and distributed in various forms. You can get it in powder form or take it as a capsule or tablet, and you can even use it in oil form. The latest kind is the green lipped mussel cream. This is not a supplement; rather it is used as an alternative treatment for arthritis.

This cream is applied topically, relying totally on transdermal absorption. The skin is supposed to absorb the therapeutic and medicinal components of the cream for the treatment to take effect. It is applied in the affected area to obtain relief from pain and stiffness of joints related to arthritis. It is also used as a treatment for skin problems including but not limited to psoriasis and eczema.

Green lipped mussels are rich in anti-inflammatory properties that make it the best natural form of treatment for arthritis and inflammation manifesting in both internal and external body parts. This is especially advantageous for those who are experiencing the negative side of effects of the regular non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs. A more important component is the Omega 3 fatty acids. This is what gives it the miraculous effect it has on our health.

Green lipped mussel cream contains glucosamine and chondroitin. Both these natural components can be found in green lipped mussels, and they are in combination responsible for the therapeutic effect that green shelled mussels have on arthritis. However, the cream also has added substances such as peppermint and camphor oil for a more soothing feeling upon application, and olive oil or emu oil, as an accepted medium or carrier to properly introduce the therapeutic components to the skin for better absorption.

Great as the cream form of green lipped mussel may sound, there are some limitations to how it can benefit you. First, the cream form does not contain all the health-giving nutrients found in green lipped mussels, allowing you to treat present symptoms but not the cause of those symptoms. Next, transdermal absorption has not been established by any scientific studies done on green lipped mussels to be a better and more efficient way of using green lipped mussels to treat arthritis. Lastly, green lipped mussel cream does not guarantee that the therapeutic effects it has come from the GLM extract, since it also contains other ingredients.

While green shelled mussel in cream form is as comforting as it can be as a temporary treatment for your aches and pains, it will in the long-run leave you feeling short-changed. To get the maximum benefits of these phenomenal mussels, make use of the powder form instead GLM powder contains all the nutrients found in New Zealand’s amazing mussels that not only allows you to use it as treatment for your condition, but it is also keeps you strong and healthy.
