has anyone tried this product? —Preceding unsigned comment added by Teddybear017 (talkcontribs) 21:04, 5 October 2009 (UTC)

  • That looks like one of those junk/spam sites, but apparently, the use of green lipped mussel (not the product in the above link) to treat arthritis does have some data to back it up. Here's a PubMed abstract regarding its use in dogs -> [1] I thought PubMed was supposed to be pretty reliable. --Artificial Silence (talk) 08:47, 2 March 2012 (UTC)

Anti-inflammatory effect?[edit]

It's extract is marketed as Lyprinol also, showing anti-inflammatory effect according to this article [1]. Though I'm not sure if it meets Wikipedia standards as a source, any ideas?

Pink Splasher[edit]

I ran across "It is also known as the pink splasher in Tennessee." and it came as odd that a landlocked state would have a nickname for an exotic saltwater mussel so I looked the term up online and found no reliable references for it, just websites citing this very same wikipedia article. As such, I've removed it for now. If anyone can find a reliable source, they may place it back. (talk) 01:57, 1 July 2014 (UTC)

A note to watch out for possible vegan censorship[edit]

There was an edit on the 12th of Feb 2017 removing the sentence about the efficiency of mussel aquaculture in comparison to land-based protein. I have checked the citation and added a link to it, and paraphrased the citation with more context.

Given that mussels do not compete with land-based crop farming and land-based humans and animals for living space, and require no additional fertilliser or pesticide input and minimal pest control, and that mussels are barely sentient, an environmental case and ethical case could be made for vegans to consume a greater proportion of mussel protein instead of land-based vegetable protein. This citation is one of the cornerstones of that case. Please watch it carefully! — Preceding unsigned comment added by AndiSLiu (talkcontribs) 14:34, 17 February 2017 (UTC)
