The Link Between Omega 3 Fatty Acids & Phospholipids
Increasing your daily intake of anti-inflammatory food items will help you in reducing the swelling and pain resulting from inflammation. Here are the names of 10 most effective anti-inflammatory foods: grass fed beef, cold water fish, spinach, broccoli, Brussels sprouts, cauliflower, blueberries, tomatoes, cherries and olive oil.
These are mainly the foods that have always been referred to as healthy foods by your mother. However, there are also some anti-inflammatory food items that she may not be aware of, for instance turmeric and an oil type which according to me is one of the best options (from an absolute scientific perspective) when it comes to foods with anti-inflammatory properties, New Zealand green lipped mussel oil.
Like any cold water fish oil, mussel oil also contains Omega 3 in high quantity; but, the fact that makes green lipped mussel oil even more unique (and also a great anti-inflammatory agent for fighting joint pain and arthritis) is the presence of high levels of phospholipids (phospholipids are essential fatty acids containing phosphate) in it along with Omega 3.
This Omega 3/ phospholipid combination is also responsible for allowing easier and faster absorption of the oil into our bloodstream compared to other fish oils. If you are looking for a scientific explanation of this feature of the oil, here it is: unlike, the majority of the other marine animals, the green lipped mussels survive by consuming algae and phytoplankton containing high levels of Omega 3 Poly Unsaturated Fatty Acids (PUFA). As a result, the lipid composition of mussels remains predominated (57 to 79%) by phospholipids.
Not many manufacturers in New Zealand extract green lipped mussel oil; here, we will help you in finding the green lipped mussel oil brand you can trust on. Here, we have mentioned the names of the leading mussel oil brands of the country and also compared them with each other. Names of the nation’s top mussel oil brands include: Tripernol, Omega XL, Lyprinol and Moxxor.
Tripernol Mussel Oil is known for containing higher levels of Omega3; it is a product developed by a manufacturing company called Bio-mer. All these natural supplements with anti-inflammatory properties have been obtained from a sustainable, abundant and environment friendly source of mussel oil found in New Zealand.
