KUKU FAQS

1. How can KUKU assist with joint health?

Unfortunately normal wear & tear, injury, and medical conditions including arthritis can cause joint cartilage to become thin and brittle. KUKU contains rich compounds such as glycosaminoglycans (GAGs) which can help the body repair and rebuild damaged cartilage. The unique combination of Omega-3 fatty acids helps to reduce inflammation in the joints, which can lead to a reduction in pain.

2. Why is it beneficial to take both a Green Lipped Mussel oil capsule and a powder capsule each day?

The Green Lipped Mussel (GLM) oil in KUKU is extracted at an extremely high ratio and contains a unique combination of Omega 3 oils. This makes the oil a very effective natural anti-inflammatory which can help to reduce pain caused by inflammation. However after much research we established that the Green Lipped Mussel powder retained more of the nutrients found in the fresh GLM. We believe the powder contains more of the nutrients needed for the repair of damaged joint cartilage and joint connective tissue.

3. When should I take the capsules?

We recommend taking the oil capsule with food in the morning, and the powder capsule with food at night. Because both the oil and powder contain high strength doses of GLM, it is likely your body will absorb the nutrients better if you take the two capsules at different times in the day. As a general rule, always have a separation of at least 2 hours between taking any prescription medication and natural health supplements.

4. Are there any side-effects of taking Green Lipped Mussel (GLM) supplements?

If you stick to the recommended dose any side effects of taking GLM supplements are very rare. If you take more than the recommended dose you may experience mild gastrointestinal symptoms including wind and loose bowel motions. It is not recommended to take GLM supplements if you have an allergy to seafood.

5. Why did you not combine the oil and powder into one capsule?

Because KUKU contains high amounts of both the GLM oil and powder it was not possible to combine the two into one capsule which was suitable for swallowing. The smaller capsule sizes make it easy to swallow.

6. How soon can I expect to see benefit from taking KUKU?

Results vary from person to person. The timeframe to experience benefits, including pain relief, varies depending on the KUKU product variation.
Those taking High Strength KUKU may experience a reduction in pain symptoms in as little as 10 days. Those taking Repair KUKU may experience a reduction in pain symptoms in 3 weeks. Those taking Maintenance KUKU may experience a reduction in pain symptoms in 4 – 5 weeks.
For repair of damaged cartilage it is recommended that you take KUKU for at least 3 months. Repair KUKU contains a higher dose of powder and is recommended for those with cartilage damage.

7. I have arthritis and take a prescription anti-inflammatory every day, why should I switch to KUKU?

The pain characteristic of arthritis is related to the high level of inflammation in the joints. While over-the-counter pain medications such as non-steroidal anti-inflammatory medications (NSAIDs) may temporarily relieve the pain, they do not address the underlying cause: local or systemic inflammation. Any injury or infection will cause the body to trigger a response, which is the cause of the pain. In arthritis sufferers, this inflammation-pain signal cycle is never switched off, causing chronic pain.

NSAIDs are the usual course of treatment for arthritis, however anyone who has taken these pills long term knows they can come with a host of unpleasant side-effects and are not well tolerated by everyone.

KUKU may provide a natural substitute for NSAIDs, without the long term side-effects, when taken regularly for at least 3 – 4 weeks, and ongoing.
