Anyone heard of this before? I was just wondering if it's your usual "magical cure" or is there really something to it. It's for people, but arthritis is arthritis no matter the species I guess. :)

The page makes me think its snake oil, but green-lipped mussel is a known arthritis treatment found in several well respected glucosamine supplements, so maybe there's some relationship to arthropods? Hard to know without knowing the active ingredient.
