100 % green-lipped mussel (not defatted) for dogs with movement restrictions, high activity, young dogs and old dogs
Single food for dogs
ICEPAW Green Lipped Mussel Powder is a natural product. It is obtained 100% from the New Zealand green-lipped mussel (Perna canaliculus). We only use green-lipped mussel in pure full-fat quality. Our processed mussel meat is therefore not defatted. All important nutrients such as glycosaminoglycans, vitamins and omega-3 fatty acids are therefore retained and are not lost in the processing process. High-quality green-lipped mussel products contain 2-3% glycosaminoglycans. Glycosaminoglycans (GAG) are considered to be cartilage protective substances and are able to bind water. They are the most important nutrient of the green-lipped mussel. GAG's are multiple sugars which are a natural component of the joint fluid, cartilage and connective tissue of the dog. GAG's, including hyaluronic acid, heparin and chondroitin sulfate serve as lubricants in the synovial fluid and provide elasticity to the articular cartilage.
With increasing age, the lubricating property of the joint fluid decreases because fewer GAG's are produced. Few GAG's automatically means less resilience because less water is bound in the tissue. Supple joints can be supported by an additional intake with green-lipped mussel powder. Green lipped mussel powder is ideal for feeding to dogs with high activity, in old age or in the growth phase, where it is useful to promote the build-up of synovial fluid.
