A Unique Extract
Green Lipped FFA is an extract of the green-lipped mussel, which contains rare forms of omega-3 fatty acids. These omega-3ÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã¢â€žÂ¢s, eicosatetraenoic acid (ETA) and its precursor stearidonic acid (SDA), are not found in significant amounts in standard fish oils, and are potent antiinflammatory agents. AORÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã¢â€žÂ¢s green-lipped mussel extract is a stable fatty acid extract, which is a far more superior and effective extract compared to other green-lipped mussel extracts available on the market.
Stops Inflammation in its Tracks
ETA and SDA have been found to improve stiffness and joint functionality and decrease night pain in patients with rheumatoid and osteoarthritis. They also have benefits in bronchial asthma and premenstrual syndrome. ETA and SDA work their magic by modulating the bodyÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã¢â€žÂ¢s production of inflammatory signaling molecules called eicosanoids. Some eicosanoids block inflammation, but others act as harmful pro-inflammatory signals. If the normal pathway of pro-inflammatory eicosanoids is blocked, they can be produced by an even more destructive pathway. Many antiinflammatory agents only block the first pathway, but ETA and SDA block both routes of production. This is particularly important in autoimmune disorders.
Besides the anti-inflammatory mechanisms common to all omega-3s, ETA and SDA have unique and potent actions. Green Lipped FFA protects against the damage and pain of inflammation in ways that other supplements cannot match.
