A Brief History Of New Zealand Green Lipped Mussel Extract

If you've been relying on Cod Liver Oil or Fish Oil, it may be time for you to make a change. Why? Because New Zealand Green Lipped Mussel Extract is gaining acclaim as the best omega 3 supplement on the market. But what in the world is a New Zealand green lipped mussel?

What is this Mussel?

The green lipped mussel is a shellfish native to the Marlborough Sounds aquatic region and has been commercially farmed via marine harvesters in a fascinating ritual that has been honed and perfected over the years. Using a single rope growing method (attached to a buoy), these green lipped mussels are "grown" in deep, cold seas that contribute to faster maturity and work to eliminate sand and grit that can be such a shellfish turn off.

Why this Particular Mussel?

This particular extract has gained ground as the best omega 3 supplements because green lipped mussels organically offer a total of five different kinds of Omega-3s, including EPA, DHA, ETA and OTA (which are the most popular varieties.) In addition to these omega 3's, New Zealand Green Lipped Mussel Extract contains proteins, mineral deposits and something called "mucopolysaccharides," an essential ingredient of the body's connective tissues. Additionally, this extract contains glucosamine and chondroitin sulphate.

Thanks to this exceptional grouping, New Zealand Green Lipped Mussel Extract has come to be relied upon by users to improve their joint flexibility, cartilage support, promote feelings of good health and just an generally improved sense of well-being. Green lipped mussel has long been recognized as an anti-inflammatory and many who suffer from arthritis, asthma, psoriasis and IBD (inflammatory bowel disease) swear by the supplement's success.

Dosages generally range from between 1,500 and 2,000mg each day (in capsule form), but this extract is not recommended for anyone who suffers from any kind of seafood or shell fish allergy.

The Maori race (the original settlers of New Zealand) have long known and understood the wonders of this amazing extract. Now, it's your turn to discover what the green lipped mussel has to offer.
