Greenlipped Mussel Extract compared to Fish Oil Supplements According to findings published in Rheumatologia, the official journal of the Institute of Rheumatology and the Polish Rheumatological Society, a daily dose of 1.2 g of a green lipped mussel (Perna canaliculus) produced "significantly less pain, greater joint mobility and no side effects" in all 25 people taking the supplements for 12 weeks. In comparison, a daily dose of 1.2 g of fish oil, containing 18% EPA and 12% DHA, for another group of 25 produced "no pain relief or increased joint mobility". Authors: J. Szechinski, M. Zawadzki.

What is Greenlipped Mussel? The New Zealand Greenlipped Mussel (Perna canaliculus) is found exclusively in New Zealand's unspoiled pristine coastal waters. The mussels are harvested when fully grown by lifting the growing lines and carefully removing the mussels from each individual line. Once the mussels are removed from the growing lines they are reseeded for continued harvest.
Harvesting is synchronised with factory production to ensure the mussels spend a minimum time out of the water. Once the mussels are harvested, they are transferred to the processing plant, the shell is removed, and the extract is freeze dried using low temperatures and vacuum controls to remove the water. This process preserves the integrity of the bioactive molecules and ensures the stability and activity of the vast array of nutrients naturally contained within the extract.
