Christchurch supplement improves arthritic conditions, study shows

An Australian clinical study trial of a Christchurch-made green shell mussel health product has found arthritic conditions improved by 43 per cent for people taking the supplement.
The product of Bromley-based manufacturer Aroma NZ was trialled by Queensland University to determine its benefits.
Company director Ben Winters said it was well-known that green shell mussel powder gave ''great'' results to people and animals suffering joint pain and inflammation.
The results just released showed a 43 per cent improvement over eight weeks in arthritis sufferers who took part in the trial with a significant reduction in joint pain and increased joint mobility in patients.
''It confirms the product contains significant anti-inflammatory properties,'' Mr Winters said.

The company has been producing various products for more than 50 years in Christchurch.
Mr Winters' grandfather owned an essences and flavourings business in Rotterdam which he further developed in Christchurch from 1961.MORE>>
