Green Eggs - Natural Joint Support
Green Eggs is the natural approach to joint pain. Just four simple but effective ingredients that promote healthy joints.
Green Eggs is rich in glycosaminoglycans (GAGs) including chondroitin sulfate and hyaluronic acid, as well as collagen and anti-inflammatory fatty acids.
Promotes overall joint health
Protects against inflammation

Green Eggs is a delicious way to support healthy joints and mobility. Green Eggs is a safe and effective blend of:
1. Green Lipped Mussels
Scientists are studying Green Lipped Mussel as a safe alternative for dogs that are unable to tolerate the side effects of NSAIDs (non steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs).
Both Green Lipped Mussels and NSAIDs are COX (cyclooxygenase) inhibitors. COX enzymes ramp up inflammation by triggering immune chemicals called prostaglandins.
Green Lipped Mussels are also rich in glycosaminoglycans (or GAGs), including chondroitin sulfate. Chondroitin strengthens and builds joint cartilage.
Green Lipped Mussels are also a good source of anti-inflammatory fats including EPA and ETA. Four Leaf Rover Green Lipped Mussels are rich in fats with an average 6-10% content.
In a 2007 study, dogs were given Green Lipped Mussel for 8 weeks. They had a significant improvement in pain and mobility. And most of the dogs didn’t need pain meds.
The Green Lipped Mussels in Green Eggs are sustainably farmed in New Zealand. They are carefully freeze dried, highly bioavailable and a good source of vitamins and minerals. (See Research Below)
2. NEM® Eggshell Membrane
NEM® is rich in glycosaminoglycans (GAGs) including chondroitin sulfate and hyaluronic acid, as well as collagen.
A 2017 randomized trial showed NEM® reduced exercise-related joint pain in just 8 days. In other published clinical trials, it was shown to reduce pain in 7 - 10 days.
In vivo and in vitro studies also show NEM® can decrease levels of inflammatory substances associated with joint inflammation. NEM® is also clinically proven to help protect joint cartilage.
NEM® is sourced from human-grade eggs that are used for baked goods. While other eggshell membranes can come from discarded, unhealthy eggs, NEM® comes from healthy eggs used in human grade products. (See Research Below)
3. Poria Cocos
Poria has been used in Traditional Chinese Medicine for thousands of years.
Poria is a mass of mycelium that grows on the roots of trees and not technically a mushroom. It's low in starch (less than 5%) and rich in immune-modulating beta-glucans. Four Leaf Rover's Poria is a minimum 30% beta-glucan.
Poria is well known for its anti-inflammatory properties. It's often used not just for joint inflammation, but also for swelling and edema in paws and ears, as well as skin issues.
The Poria mushrooms in Green Eggs are 100% organic and grown on trees, not in a lab.
Curcumin is the active substance found in turmeric. It promotes a healthy inflammatory response and can improve joint health.
The Curcumin in Green Eggs is carbon-14 tested to ensure it contains at least 95% curcuminoids, making it a highly concentrated source of curcumin. Carbon-14 testing measures the amount of carbon-14 in every sample and compares the result to the international standards. The higher the bio-based carbon, the more naturally sourced the Curcumin. This also guarantees your dog's curcumin is free of the synthetic products common in the supplement industry today.

Can my dog take this with other joint products?
Yes! Green Eggs is completely natural and will not interact with most joint products. It pairs perfectly with Safe-Sea. If you have concerns, contact your holistic vet.
Can I give more than the recommended amount?
Yes. In fact, you should give double the amount for the first 7-10 days as a loading dose. You can keep the double dose for longer, but after 14 days, you should start to see the benefits and can decrease the amount.
Does Green Eggs contain glucosamine?
Yes, there is naturally occurring glucosamine in Green Eggs. Both the NEM and green-lipped mussels in Green Eggs contain a wide variety of glycosaminoglycans (GAGs), including glucosamine.
Does Green Eggs contain chondroitin?
Yes, the NEM in Green Eggs is a naturally rich source of chondroitin sulfate, hyaluronic acid, glucosamine and glycosaminoglycans (GAGs).
What if my dog has egg allergies?
If your dog has an allergy to eggs, he might react to Green Eggs. He may also have an allergy to green-lipped mussel, although this is rare. If your dog has sensitivities and you're concerned, start with a smaller dose and gradually increase the amount.
Is your Curcumin ingredient non-synthetic?
Absolutely. Our curcumin is standardized to 95% curcuminoids, the active compound found in turmeric. It's also carbon-14 tested which verifies that there are no synthetics in the ingredients and that the curcumin is 100% natural.
