If you or your dear ones are suffering from arthritis and tried various treatments without relief take heart. There is still hope. For the solution might be found in the ocean Yes! As new scientific research uncovers the mysteries of the Seas, the New Zealand Green Lipped Mussel (GLM), an edible shellfish found off the coast of New Zealand seems to contain the therapeutic agents needed to treat one of the most debilitating diseases of our time. This revolutionary therapy has already benefited millions of users around the world and is now available in India.
According to Dr. John Croft, a marine scientist associated with the research on GLME from the early days and author of the book ‘Health from the seas’ – The New Zealand GLME holds the key to overcoming arthritis and other auto-immune inflammatory conditions.
The Story behind the GLM
Green Lipped Mussel – biologically known as ‘Perna Canaliculus’ – is an edible shellfish found off the coast of New Zealand and has been a part of the diet of the local populations for centuries.
It was in 1947 that an American research program studying marine molluscs for anti-cancer properties found the Green Lipped Mussel (GLM) to be a potential natural remedy for arthritis.
GLM has now been subjected to thirty years of quality scientific research and proven on laboratory and clinical trials, involving both human and animal subjects, to be effective in treating both rheumatoid and Osteo forms of arthritis.
Although some traditional doctors have regarded the claims made for the GLM with skepticism, the sales statistics tell their own story 1947. New Zealanders gathered 250 tons of GLM but, once anecdotal evidence of its anti-inflammatory and anti-arthritic properties grew, sales rocketed. Last year, the GLM harvest weighed in at 85,000 tons making it a bigger concern than the New Zealand wine industry. Today, the GLM is cultivated on marine farms which are strictly controlled by the New Zealand government to ensure safety & quality.
How it works
While various clinical studies have indicated a success rate of about 75 percent for arthritis sufferers, the big advantage of the Green Lipped Mussel Extract (GLME) treatment is that it does not cause the classical adverse side effects of drug therapy. GLME has natural gastro-protective properties which means that, not only does it not damage the delicate stomach lining, it actually provides a protective function for it. And in the process, it reduces pain considerably.
Because there has been so much excellent research work done on the GLME over the past 30 years. It is possible to explain why it has such beneficial properties for the treatment of arthritis.
GLME contains anti-inflammatory agents, immune modulators and many essential building blocks- proteins, minerals, glycosaminoglycans and marine long chain fatty acids all naturally occurring therapeutic agents known to maintain joint mobility & well being and needed to rebuild Collagen, proteoglycans and synovial fluid found in the joints, ligaments and tendons. These therapeutic agents combine together to provide a powerful, yet safe, treatment.
The therapy involves taking 1000mg/day of GLME in capsule form for first 3 months and thereafter, the dosage can be reduced to 500mg/day or stopped altogether depending on results varying from person to person. It may take as long as 6-8 weeks or as early as one week for first signs of improvement to appear.
The benefit comes as relief from pain and improvement in general mobility. Usually the improvement in general mobility .Usually the improvement in these conditions is gradual and progressive; it is also usually long lasting and not temporary. Normally, the first thing to be noticed is a reduction in pain, which is then followed by gradual improvement in grip strength, freedom of movement or other mobility.

Where do I find GLME
GLME is available in 500mg capsule under the brand “Seatone”, which is sold in over 30 countries and is a trusted name for millions of users around the world for the last 30 years. Seatone is produced by Healtheries of New Zealand Limited in a multi-million dollar facility designed to strict pharmaceutical industry standards.
All the major research on GLME since its discovery in 1947 has been done on Seatone GLME which uses a unique extraction process developed by Healtheries which ensures that the therapeutically active components of GLM are preserved in the freeze dried extract.
In India, the cost for this therapy 1000mg of Seatone GLME comes to Rs. 40/day for first 3 months.
