Green Lipped Mussel Oil
Can I replace my fish oil with Safe-Sea?
Yes! We feel Safe-Sea is more beneficial than fish oil because it contains more fatty acids … about 10 times more! Green Lipped Mussel is also more bioavailable than fish oil, so you need to give your dog a lot more fish oil.
Marine oils are also lacking in GLA, an important anti-inflammatory omega fat … but the Ahiflower in Safe-Sea is an excellent source of GLA. It contains 60% more than hempseed oil.
Should I put Safe-Sea in the fridge?
Green Lipped Mussels are already rich in antioxidants and we’ve added astaxanthin, so Safe-Sea could be stored in a cool, dark place. But if you have room in your fridge, it will ensure the oils are as effective as possible. If the bottle is open for more than 30 days, then it’s a good idea to place Safe-Sea in the fridge.
Could I just use fresh or powdered mussels instead?
In most cases, it would be best to use Green Lipped Mussel oil for a few reasons:
1. It’s more concentrated. You would need to give your dog about 15X more powder to get the same amount of omega-3 fats. This might be too much powder for your dog to consume.
2. If your dog has a shellfish allergy, there are no proteins to trigger an allergic reaction.
3. Many Green Lipped Mussel powders are stripped of the fats before they’re sold. This waste product is sold mainly as pet supplements, but without the fat, your dog won’t get the same health benefits.
Why does Safe-Sea contain Ahiflower?
Marine oils, including Green Lipped Mussel oil, lacks an important anti-inflammatory fatty acid called GLA (gamma-linolenic acid). GLA is an effective anti-inflammatory that’s been shown to decrease pain and functionality associated with arthritis … and it’s important for a healthy skin and coat.

Our Green Lipped Mussels are grown in bays in New Zealand. They hang on ropes in pristine waters are are ready to harvest in 12 to 18 months. They filter phytoplankton from the water and need no other food, which means their farming has zero impact on the environment. They don’t eat anything needed by other sea creatures because there is always phytoplankton in water.
