Salmon is an excellent source of several B vitamins, which are needed for energy production, controlling inflammation and protecting heart and brain health.
Salmon is quite high in potassium.
Potassium helps control your blood pressure and it also reduces the risk of a stroke.
Loaded With Selenium
Selenium is a mineral found in soil and certain foods.
It’s considered a trace mineral, meaning their bodies only need tiny amounts of it. Nevertheless, getting enough selenium in your dog and cats diet is important.
Studies have shown that selenium helps protect bone health and may reduce the risk of cancer.
Contains the Antioxidant Astaxanthin
Astaxanthin is an antioxidant found in salmon that may benefit heart, brain, nervous system and skin health.
Astaxanthin is a compound linked to several powerful health effects. As a member of the carotenoid family of antioxidants, astaxanthin gives salmon its red pigment.
Astaxanthin appears to lower the risk of heart disease by reducing oxidation of LDL (the “bad”) cholesterol and increasing HDL (the “good”) cholesterol.
In addition, astaxanthin is believed to work with salmon’s omega-3 fatty acids to protect the brain and nervous system from inflammation.
May Reduce the Risk of Heart Disease
Consuming salmon oil can help protect against heart disease by increasing levels of omega-3 fats, decreasing levels of omega-6 fats and lowering triglycerides.
This is due, in large part, to salmon’s ability to boost omega-3s in the blood.
Research suggests that when the balance of these two fatty acids is off, the risk of heart disease increases.
Salmon can be a powerful weapon against inflammation.
May Protect Brain Health
Both fatty fish and fatty oils have been found to reduce depressive symptoms, protect fetal brain health during pregnancy, decrease anxiety, slow age-related memory loss and lower the risk of dementia.

How does it help?
Well, let’s talk joint pain for a moment. Millions of cats and dogs around the world experience the aches associated with an inflammatory condition that can manifest itself as arthritis, osteoarthritis, rheumatism or gout.
You and your four-legged friends can benefit from the mussels because, when harvested in peak condition, they are a rich source of omega fatty acids and minerals. Powdered extract of GLM contains very high concentration of omega-3s and a unique combination of fatty acids that is not found in any other marine or plant life. Studies have also shown that they are used in order to reduce pain, and they can act as a feeding stimulant. However, their greatest healing properties correspond to the fact that they are a natural anti-inflammatory due to them being an excellent source of glucosamine and chondroitin.
The two healing agents, Glucosamin and chondroitin are important and critical building blocks for bones and cartilage. They are key in reducing and inhibiting inflammation, and relieving pain associated with joint problems.
A Virtual Superfood!
In addition to their inflammatory healing properties, these mussels are considered a superfood because they contain a huge variety of vitamins, minerals, amino acids, Omega-3 fats, antioxidants, enzymes, and many more nutrients.
GLM can also be used as a preventative in order to save your pet from pain and stiffness as they get older.

How Much Does Your Dog Need?
The best way to supplement GLM into your pet’s diet is to sprinkle the extract over their food.
A study published in the Journal of Nutrition in 2002 says that the size of your pet is a key factor that must be taken into consideration when determining the right dosage of GLM. The simplest way to do the math is to follow this general rule: 30mg of powdered extract per 1 Kg of pet’s body weight.
But size isn’t the only important thing to keep in mind when measuring dosages. The severity of your pet’s condition is probably the most important factor. If your pet is suffering from arthritis and you do not see any improvement in the first 2-4 weeks of giving the supplement, you can increase the dosage slightly. After a month or so, once your pet’s health condition improves, you can decrease the dosage to the previous dosages mentioned.
It is always very important to consult with your vet before adding any supplement to your pet’s diet. Although no negative reactions have been reported in correlation with the use of the extract, it’s important to always keep a close eye on your pets when introducing them to new foods and supplements.
Take the plunge and put a little “mussel” AND Salmon Oil into your pet’s diet.
