Green-lipped mussels

I've read the benefits of the extract, and have access to these, a few markets in my area. (Whenever possible, I also like to feed the actual thing rather than an extract. And my dog likes them!)

But I'm wondering, How many mussels would you imagine constitute, say 500-1000mg of glucosamine (1/day? 2/day?, 10/day?) Any one venture a guess? I'm just feeding one mussel per day, along with 500mg capsule of glucosamine/chondroitin. Anyone have access to a knowledgeable person on this matter?

I just wonder if this is at all worthwhile (i.e. 1/day), as they aren't necessarily cheap. And if the effect is negligable, probably I'll just dump the practice.

Thanks for reading.
