 capsules only contain the lipid fraction of the mussel, which is the biological most valuable compound. A patented process of stabilization and extraction ensures the fatty acids do not become rancid and keep full biological activity. 


Research has revealed greenlipped mussel oil is not only a rich source of the well-known fatty acids EPA and DHA, but also contains a few other, rare omega-3 fatty acids. These fatty acids are found exclusively in algae living in the cold, deep, salt, pristine coastal waters of New Zealand. Mussels inhabiting these waters filter out the algae, and store their fatty acids. The newly discovered omega-3 fatty acids are the secret behind the biological activity of greenlipped mussel oil.   


Pernamix only contains the stabilized oil, and hardly contains any proteins.

Recent research has shown greenlipped mussel oil is not only a rich source of the well-known fatty acids EPA and DHA, but also contains a few rare, other omega-3 fatty acids. These fatty acids are found only in the algae living in the cold, deep, salty and pristine coastal waters of New Sealand. The mussels living in these waters feed on the algae by filtering the water, and store the fatty acids. 

The newly discovered fatty acids make the oil derived from greenlipped mussels much more complete the other oils, including fish oil. One consequence is, you would need much less of this oil compared to fish oil. 


 Omega-3 fatty acids (%) in greenlipped mussel oil and fish oil


According to recent insights our nutrition does not contain sufficient omega-3 fatty acids.  Supplementation with omega-3 fatty acids is recommended, but the ratio omega-3 : omega-6 acids may not be lost out of sight. Aspitol® Plus contains approximately an equal amount of omega-3 fatty acids and omega-6 fatty acids, which guarantees a balanced ratio.


The discovery of the new fatty acid (C20:4n-3) in greenlipped mussel oil has created an 'hype'. Some distributors try to make an easy profit by claiming the amount of ETA in their product. However, the fatty acid ETA is completely different from the newly discovered fatty acid in greenlipped mussel oil. The only similarity is, both fattty acids are built of twenty carbon atoms. However, the double bonds between the carbon atoms are on different locations, giving both fatty acids a completely different biological activity. 


Green-lipped mussel is also offered as dried powder. This powder is sold in capsules or as loose powder in small bottles. However, it is difficult to stabilize omega-3 fatty acids in powder form for a longer period. That is why omega-3 fatty acids in powder form easily oxidate, loose their biological activity and even become toxic. This is the reason why green-lipped mussel powder starts to smell rancid when exposed to air.

Another disadvantage of green-lipped mussel powder is, it contains the mussel proteins which may cause allergic reactions for those with a shellfish intolerance.  

And last but least: the amount of green-lipped mussel oil produced is growing by the year, and so is the amount of powder the oil has been extracted from. This powder is a waste product with hardly any biological activity, as it contains hardly any omega-3 fatty acids. Yet, this powder is not destroyed but sold as green-lipped mussel powder for lower prices!. Many actually think this powder is of superior quality as -due to the absence of oxidating fatty acids- is does not smell as bad as green-lipped powder that still contains the fat fraction! 

The advantages of green-lipped mussel oil can be summarized as follows:

• The omega-3 fatty acids in green-lipped mussel oil are the biological most active compounds;
• Green-lipped mussel oil can easily be stabilized and is of consistent high quality;
• Green-lipped mussel oil hardly contains any proteins and may well be tolerated by people with a shellfish intolerance;
• Green-lipped mussel oil is salt free and can be used well in a low salt diet;
• GLMO is a natural ingredient without any side effects, even safe for children.
