Loved by our customers for over 12 years, Lyprinol® is the original formulation containing the oil of the Perna Canaliculus – Green Lipped Mussel, supported by clinical and laboratory studies published in peer-reviewed medical and scientific journals. Lyprinol® is tasteless and safe with no side effects.
The green-lipped mussel is considered a superfood because it contains a wide variety of vitamins, minerals, omega-3 fats, amino acids, antioxidants, enzymes, and many more nutrients.
For a long time, the native Maori people of New Zealand have included the New Zealand Green-Lipped Mussel as a staple part in their diet. This unique mussel is known scientifically as ‘Perna canaliculus’. For centuries, it has provided an excellent source of protein, vitamins, minerals and extremely valuable Omega-3 fatty acids. We could see Maoris with shell-opening knives in their belts at Auckland’s seafood shops before dawn buying their mussels before going to work. Here, in a region called the Marlborough Sounds, nourishing Pacific currents create the ideal environment for growing the mussel in pristine and uncontaminated waters
Most mussel powders over the years have shown conflicting results in efficacy studies due to the oxidation of their non-polar lipids (Lyprinol) which is where their true activity lies. A patent was granted for the stabilisation of the mussel powder and also for the extraction process for Lyprinol®. Lyprinol® is a unique patented marine lipid group comprising a unique combination of different non-polar lipid groups and Omega-3 polyunsaturated fatty acids which are extracted from the New Zealand Green-Lipped Mussel.
Lyprinol is a natural marine extract comprising a rare combination of lipid groups and unique Omega-3 polyunsaturated fatty acids. Current research indicates that these Omega-3 fatty acids provide nutritional support against fatty acid imbalance. Lyprinol is stabilised and extracted via a gentle patented process. Lyprinol is one of the best natural sources of Omega-3, due to additional lipids unique to the Green Lipped Mussel. It is like fish oil only better (no fishy breath, upset stomachs and greasy stools).
