History of the Green-lipped Mussel

History of the Green-lipped Mussel

The native Maori population of New Zealand has consumed raw green-lipped mussels as a primary part of their diet for many generations. Interest in the health benefits of green-lipped mussels quickly stemmed from the observation that coastal Maoris had lower incidences of arthritis than European or inland Maori cohorts.

It wasn’t long before scientific research was carried out and the green-lipped mussel made a name for itself as the healer of all thing’s inflammation and joint pain. Since then, a great deal of research has been carried out globally, indicating that Green-lipped mussel and their extracts are able to relieve multiple symptoms of arthritis compared to more conventional anti-inflammatory drugs.

Today, we fully recognise these benefits and want to make them as accessible to as many people and pets as possible. Our extraction technologies allow us to create some of the most potent and pure green-lipped mussel powder and green-lipped mussel oil on the market.
