Q: I heard there is now a new generation of the New Zealand Green Lipped Mussel that works really well for arthritis. Why is it better?
Dr. Henry Cheng: Maori Miracle is the new generation of New Zealand Green Lipped Mussel (Perna Canaliculus) supplement. In addition to glucosamine this mussel extract has 8 other glycosaminoglycans that are further reinforced with Collagen Type II from chicken cartilage. It also contains a fatty acid ester (Cetyl-Myristoleate) and a herbal pain killer salicin from White Willow Bark. It has anti-inflammatory actions and lubricates the joint by improving the synovial fluid. It is suitable for both osteoarthritis and rheumatoid arthritis.
