Green Lipped Mussel (GLM) is the Power behind Glyde

Osteoarthritis (OA), or arthritis in dogs, is a painful joint disease that affects people as well as dogs. It happens because as our joints age, inflammation begins. Humans can feel this difference, identify a problem, talk about it and seek help if needed. Unfortunately, our dogs can’t. It’s up to us as the pet parents to do this for them. When pet parents start seeing the signs of slow movement or stiffness in their dog or cat, most attribute it to aging.  But just as in humans, this process can happen earlier than it should, and you can do something about it.  

Try this short online assessment to help determine if your dog has arthritis. 

Glyde® Mobility Chews are a revolutionary treatment that can help solve the problem of OA in dogs. Glyde promotes joint health and cartilage development. Many products use the main ingredients of glucosamine and chondroitin, which are also found in Glyde. Our product has a unique combination of the two ingredients plus the added power of green lipped mussels (GLM).


Green lipped mussels are from the pristine waters of New Zealand. GLMs are not new and the immense health benefits associated with them have already been proven in humans. Adults already take advantage of this supplement to help relieve the signs of aging, especially when arthritis and swollen joints are an issue. Pets should have that opportunity as well.

With such a nutrient-rich environment, it’s easy to see why GLMs are so healthy. Living off the coast of New Zealand in one of the most secluded, deep and pure waters of the south Pacific, they feed on phytoplankton, one of the richest sources of antioxidants. With so many natural benefits, it’s no wonder it has become a sought-after power food for humans, and now dogs.

Of course, equally important when taking advantage of these rich nutrients is no part should be wasted. Glyde uses the whole mussel, not just a component of the mussel, which others are known to do. Each part of mussel has beneficial effects. Whole mussels contain complex proteins, vitamins, minerals, amino acids, glycosaminoglycans, chondroitin sulfate, nucleic acids and essential fatty acids.

Studies have proven GLMs are one of nature’s best sources of Eicosatetraenoic Acid (ETA), which on its own has an abundance of health benefits including being one of the most effective anti-inflammatory joint supplements. One study showed significant improvement in joint pain and joint swelling had decreased in dogs after adding it to their diet for 6 weeks.1


The good news is that it’s never too early to start with Glyde. And if OA is present, it’s a great resource to help slow down the process. It will only continue to benefit your pet as it ages and delay the signs of aging by helping the joints stay more mobile thanks to the unique blend of nutrients. Glyde Mobility Chews have naturally sourced ingredients, no artificial colors, flavors or preservatives. The nutrients are left intact for a powerfully-packed supplement that combats the signs of aging for your dog.

And ask yourself: if you could tap into a virtual fountain of youth for your dog and dial back the years– wouldn’t you? Of course you would! Now you know you can by using the knowledge and science found in the power of Glyde Mobility Chews. Get started today and keep your dog moving like a puppy again!
