The remedy you really should shout about

The Good Life Letter 

9th August 2015

Barely a day passes without some drug company or other claiming they have a new wonder drug which will cure all ills.

A big fanfare media blitz is then followed by the small print...

...after successful trials in around five years – and then we hear no more about it.

Wonder what happens to all of this amazingly good stuff?

In most cases it fails safety trials, or isn’t as effective as they said it was or just didn’t exist in the first place.

Believe or not many of these announcements are done just to keep the companies name in the media and push up their share price.

It’s a crazy world.

So when I read the other day that a new asthma treatment could be five years I didn’t take it too seriously.

The story goes that a research team have discovered specialised cells in the respiratory tract called calcium sensing receptors that are responsible for the inflammation and closing of the breathing tubes.

This in turn causes the asthma attack.

The problem is that having identified the cause they now need to find a drug to treat it, and are looking at a range which were previously used for dealing with the brittle bone disease – osteoporosis.

Well here’s hoping...

But what if I were to tell you that one class of remedy has always shown to be effective against inflammatory conditions like asthma, inflammatory bowel disease and even arthritis?

Chances are you would think that the press would be all over it, heralding a new line in medical breakthroughs.

Even better would be the news that it was entirely natural, safe and could even be given to pets.

The world would rejoice, surely?

Maybe not – and that is because no major drug company stands to benefit as a result.

The ‘wonder treatment’ I want you to put your hands together for is an extract of Green Lipped Mussels called Lyprinol.

'Can green lipped mussels really help relieve asthma?'

It’s not the first time I’ve mentioned this amazing product but as I look around the medical press I can’t help wonder why they don’t make more of a splash.

Every year more and more research is showing how good this stuff is for a whole range of inflammatory conditions and proving that the powerful oils from New Zealand shellfish are a powerful natural anti-inflammatory. This means they can help relieve all kinds of joint pain and much more.

The website I showed you last time I spoke about [Lyprinol] boasted a series of free reports, PDFs and other scientific bits and pieces showing the clinical trials into green lipped mussels. They're all here if you didn't read that issue, or you simply want to take another a look – Click here

A number of Good Lifers who visited this website noticed that green lipped mussels are also known as a potential remedy for asthma.

'But how does this work?' was a common question asked.

Well, put simply, it's all down to the intense levels of omega 3 fatty acids in green lipped mussel oils.

I'll explain...

A dangerous imbalance in our diets

The general consensus these days - and evinced by writers such as Michael Pollan (In Defence of Food) and Colin T. Campbell (The China Study) - is that our western diet is far too high in Omega-6 fats.

These are fats you get from high levels of vegetable oils in modern cooking processes.

This isn't to say that omega-6s are bad for you - they're actually ESSENTIAL for good health - it's just that they need to be properly balanced out by an intake of omega 3 fatty acids.

Omega 3 fats come largely from fish, seafood, broccoli, cabbage, and walnuts and flaxseeds.

They are either missing from our diet altogether... we don't eat them in big enough amounts... or the versions of these foods that we DO eat are heavily depleted in omega 3 because of modern 'high yield' farming methods.

Many experts believe that the ideal ratio of omega-6 to omega-3 should 1:1. But the average western diet has a ratio of 20:1.

That's a scary thought isn't it?

When you think of the term 'imbalance', I tend to think of a seesaw slightly tilted.

But in the case of omega 3 and omega 6, it's like a seesaw with a garden gnome at one end and Giant Haystacks squatted on the other end.

It's this huge imbalance which is being linked to many systemic inflammatory problems.

Here's where green lipped mussels come in...

By taking a green mussel extract, you can dramatically shift the balance of fats in your body.

Think of the garden gnome growing, Giant Haystacks shrinking, and the seesaw quickly tilting the other way.

The intense boost of omega 3 can help reduce the body's natural inflammatory response to viruses and allergic reactions. This can be a great aid in helping to control asthma symptoms. Because in asthma, it's the inflammation of the airways that causes the breathing problems.

Of course, ordinary fish oils are a good source of these omega-3s. But the king of all fish oils is the green lipped mussel. It lives in sun-baked waters packed with plankton that contain extraordinarily high levels of antioxidants.

Take a look at the story of how the Maori fisherman who lived on these mussels enjoyed almost total freedom from arthritis: Click here

100 times more potent than fish oil

The best way I've found to get all the benefits of green lipped mussels is to try a quality extract like Lyprinol.

This has been shown to be:

  • 100 times more potent than EPA Max (fish oil)
  • 125 times more potent than original freeze dried mussel powder
  • 175 times more potent than evening primrose oil
  • 175 times more potent than Salmon Oil
  • 200 times more potent than Flax Oil

And because of the extraction process it can be eaten by anyone suffering from shellfish intolerance.

There's no fishy smell or aftertaste. And you only have to take 1 - 2 capsules a day.

Hopefully today's email will give you some ideas of how to keep your airways healthy this summer. I know how much havoc this season can play on sufferers of hay fever, asthma and other allergies.

Yours, as always


NB: Asthma is not to be taken lightly. This condition affects around 5.5 million people in the UK and requires regular reviews with your GP – never change your prescription without first consulting a doctor.
