Green-lipped mussel: what is it and why is it special?

The Green-lipped mussel contains special Omega 3 fatty acids and Glycosaminoglycans

The Green-lipped mussel (Perna canaliculus) is a unique animal that lives exclusively in the pure waters around New Zealand. Many people think it is a crustacean, but mussels fall into the mollusc category.

The Green-lipped mussel in Synofit is not just any extract or powder. Synofit uses the high-quality GLMax®Green-lipped mussel: a stabilized, liquid substance that consists of 100% pure Perna Canaliculus.

All the natural ingredients are still present in their original coherence, so including Glycosaminoglycans (which include Glucosamine and Chondroitin sulfate), proteins, Omega 3 fatty acids and furan fatty acids. In addition to the worldwide known Omega 3 fatty acids EPA and DHA, it also concerns the naturally rarer fatty acids ETA, ETE and DTA.

With dry extracts and powders, most of the interesting ingredients are often lost during processing, because of the heat required for the process. Therefore Synofit explicitly avoids using heat in their process. The composition of the GLMax® Green-lipped mussel from Synofit is close to the whole, unprocessed, raw Green-lipped mussel.

Why does Synofit not use Green-lipped mussel extract?

 

No Green-lipped musselextract is used in Synofit’s products, because an extract always retains and concentrates only one or a few components of the original ingredients. When the Maori used the Perna canaliculus, and this food became known worldwide, the Green-lipped mussel was eaten whole and raw. When certain substances are ‘purified’ in a processing process, this means that other elements are removed. For example, there are products that only contain the fatty acids of the Green-lipped mussel. This means that there are no Glycosaminoglycans (Glucosamine and Chondroitin), proteins and other tissues left. There are also products that only contain ‘pure Glucosamine’ from the Green-lipped mussel. But then the Omega 3 fatty acids, the furan fatty acids, the proteins and tissues of the bug are absent.
We believe this detracts from the totality of ingredients and that is why Synofit consciously does not use a Green-lipped mussel extract, but a 100% pure Green-lipped mussel (GLMax®). All the ingredients of the Green-lipped mussel are therefore still present in their original form and ratio in the Synofit products.

Why does Synofit not use Green-lipped mussel powder?

Other Green-lipped mussel products usually consist of dry powder or capsules containing a powder. In order to make a powder from a Green-lipped mussel, one must use a radical treatment, for example heating. Not all substances then remain in their original state and many of the good ingredients are lost in this way.
It would actually be best if we would eat the Green-lipped mussel straight out of the shell. Because this is not practical and is also unsavory for many, Synofit has chosen to bring the Green-lipped mussel in a liquid form (GLMax®), so that all substances remain optimally preserved and stable. Why does Synofit not use Green-lipped mussel powder?

An additional advantage of a liquid is that the ingredients from it can be optimally absorbed by the gastrointestinal tract.

It is known that a relatively large part of powders is not absorbed into the body, but leaves the body in the usual way. Because Synofit uses a liquid Green-lipped mussel, relatively low dosages will suffice: GLMax® is of high quality and it is excellently absorbed by the body.

The Green-lipped mussel lives particularly well in the Marlborough Sounds in New Zealand. That is why this area is protected and the Green-lipped mussel is specially bred here.
The International Conservation Organization Blue Ocean Institute ranked the New Zealand Green-lipped mussel as one of the two most ‘eco-friendly seafoods’ in the world.
