Frequently Asked Questions
Q What is Green-Lipped Mussel Extract?
A Nutra-Life Musseltone™ is an encapsulated form of the finest grade of New Zealand Green-Lipped Mussels. The fresh mussels are processed promptly after harvesting and prepared by freeze drying and milling a liquid extract taken from the mussel. No chemicals, solvents or heat are used in this extraction process, which is designed to maximise the anti-inflammatory activity. Every batch is pharmaceutically tested to ensure it will provide effective results.
Q How does Green-Lipped Mussel Extract support my joint health?
A New Zealand Green-Lipped Mussel Extract (GLME) contains natural anti-inflammatory compounds, which inhibit the swelling caused by increased white blood cell accumulation at the site of damage, and which also prevent the promotion of pro-inflammatory substances such as enzymes (COX2), hormones (prostaglandins and leukotrienes) and fatty acids (arachidonic acid).
GLME contains a natural content of glycosaminoglycans, protein-carbohydrate substances that produce natural chondroitin, glucosamine and hyaluronic acid, essential factors for the repair and replenishment of joint cartilage. Glycosaminoglycans assist joint, tendon and ligament health, mobility and flexibility.
The oil components of GLME have a gastroprotective function, which prevents and treats the irritation of the stomach lining and digestive tract, a common problem with Pharmaceutical medications.
Green-Lipped Mussel is a protein food, which contains a good source of natural minerals and vitamins; it may be used long term with no adverse effects.
Most benefits vary from person to person, but usually occur from 4 to 8 weeks after starting Green-Lipped Mussel.
Green-Lipped Mussel molluscs are farmed in the unpolluted southern seawaters of New Zealand under stringent government regulations to guarantee purity and potency. This ensures the supply of top quality shellfish with no danger from contamination by bacteria or chemicals such as mercury or cadmium. In addition, regular testing and inspection for these contaminants is carried out at every stage of production to ensure a high quality product.
A trusted, clinically proven product for over 25 years, Nutra-Life Musseltone™ is supported by extensive scientific research. Its benefits are known worldwide, making it the world’s leading Green-Lipped Mussel Extract. This supplement is produced in a GMP (Good Manufacturing Practice) Certified Pharmaceutical Grade Laboratory.
Q What is cartilage?
A Cartilage, a natural connective substance that cushions joints and acts as a shock absorber between the bones that make up the joint, is worn away through use or injury.
