New Hope In Fighting Arthritis

Arthritis is a painful condition that causes the joints to become inflamed and in several cases when they become painful, swollen and contorted develop into severe disability.

While no drug has been found to cure arthritis, many drugs reduce pain and inflammation, and some have shown promise in slowing the progression of the disease.


But there is still hope. For the solution might be found in New Zealand`s Green Lipped Mussel(GLM), a 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.


Since its discovery in 1974, Green Lipped Mussel Extract(GLME) has now been subjected to more than thirty years of quality scientific research and proven in laboratory and clinical trails, to be effective in treating both rheumatoid and osteo forms of arthritis.

The reason for the benefit is that GLME contains anti-inflammatory agents, immune modulators and many essential building block proteins, minerals, glycosaminoglycans and marine long chain fatty acids- all naturally occurring substantial 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.

GLME manufactured by Healtheries of New Zealand is now available in India through their Authorised repesentatives Perma Healthcare. The cost for this therapy of 1000mg per day comes to Rs 50/day for first three months which can be later reduced to 500mg/day , i.e. Rs. 25/per day.
