Greenlipped Mussels FAQS

Greenlipped Mussels are unique to New Zealand’s pristine coastal waters and have been sustainably harvested for natural health for over 30 years.

What is Greenlipped Mussel Extract?

The New Zealand Greenlipped Mussel (Perna canaliculus) is found exclusively in New Zealand’s unspoiled pristine coastal waters. It derives its name from the distinctive green colouring of its shell. 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 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 marine bioactive molecules and ensures the stability and activity of the vast array of nutrients naturally contained within the extract.
