Rated 1 out of 5 by Kmac3 Smell was too string for me
This product smell strongly like scallops or oysters from the moment you open the container. I actually like both of those shellfish, but still can't seem to get past it. Then my small burps (seriously hand no idea I burped that often until now), tasted like the smell. Heaven forbid you pass gas. I found this no more tolerable than fish oil.
The price was great, if you'll use it. Shipping took forever for the free shipping. Actually placed another order a week later that I paid a few bucks for shipping. That came 4 days before the muscles.

I just started taking this product. I read about fishy smell, taste, etc. Not true! I have been buying from Swanson for years and hope this will work. It is also easy to swallow.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Murja Glad to find supplement
This is hard to find- thanks Swanson for having it. Like most of your customers I read about this in a book. If I mention it- Balch.
Seems to be of good quality and can't beat the price.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Verified Reviewer Good value
I bought 30 bottles for my family members and relatives. They all seem to be very happy with the Swanson's green lipped mussel supplements. The Swanson offers affordable prices for the people who need to take these pills everyday. Good value and good buy!

I do love this product (green mussel) and with a sale I couldn't believe I ordered a large supply to do me awhile but noticed the "use by" date is for November of this year and not sure even with my husbands help we can take them all by then.

Rated 5 out of 5 by elffbub excellent purchase
this is a very good product made super when I found it marked down by 60% for a promotion. my alternate product is made by Food Science of Vermont, both are green lipped sea mussel with the same taxonomic name & both give like results. I only regret not purchasing more at the time.

Rated 4 out of 5 by HarleyCarley If you can get past the smell . . .
Bought these for both myself and my husband. I was so excited to find this product at Swanson for a ridiculously low price as I had heard about it's many benefits for quite some time now. Eager to get started when the box arrived, I opened a bottle immediately. Closed it as fast as I opened it because the smell bowled me over. My husband, evidently with more mind control than myself, just held his breath and swallowed it. He says it's like having scallops for breakfast. He has been on this for a few weeks and keeps coming back for "scallops for breakfast", I think it's giving him some benefit. Since I bought 4 bottles, he'll keep taking it, I'll have a better grip on how well it is working for him by the time he takes ll these. Price, even when not on sale, is amazing, shipping was fast, quality is great.

New Zealand aborigines were noted to climb 80 foot trees at 80 years of age. They ate green lipped mussels.

Rated 4 out of 5 by FitDoc1 MUSSELS FOR MY JOINTS
I've been wanting to try Genuine New Zealand Green Lipped Mussels for decades. I don't know why, but I just never got around to it. I had always heard nothing but good things about it. Swanson's Premium Freeze Dried Green Lipped Mussel product kept appearing before my eyes as I perused their catalog and website. Finally, I got with it and added this to my excellent and complete joint / flexibility program. It's not as if I'm not already doing nutritional good in this area, because I am --- and with good results. However, I'm always looking for that extra 'something' to achieve the highest and best level of results possible.
Have I noticed a big improvement since adding these Mussels for my joints? Well, not really, but that doesn't mean they are not working and doing good. I am pleased with my overall joint / flexibility program. I know that the actual physical condition of all of my joints is excellent. I will continue buying this product, which I feel is top quality, from Swanson. I am taking 3 capsules once or twice daily.
Perhaps, if one were not already taking a comprehensive joint / flexibility program as I am, --- if they were using nothing, or only a couple of nutrients for their joints, the addition of the New Zealand Freeze Dried Green Lipped Mussel supplement would demonstrate a more dramatic improvement. I don't know. We are all different, as are our conditions and needs. However, that being said, I do like and believe in the quality and therapeutic potential of this Swanson product. I plan to continue its use. Works for me.

I certainly hope the claims are true about Green Lipped Mussels because this product smells and tastes like fish. If you can't stand fish you won't like this.
