The planktons that grow naturally in the seas of New Zealand
have undergone unique evolution in reaction to the strong Ultraviolet
rays. Greenshell Mussels feed on this plankton, and have been
proven to contain substances that are not usually found in mussels
grown in other areas - namely Omega unsaturated fatty acid which
has anti-inflammatory and anti-oxidative properties.
The Origin of New Zealand Greenshell Mussel research
During a research that studied the occurrence of arthritis in
the Maori population of New Zealand it was found that the occurrence
differed quite markedly between Maori populations of different
regions. The populations which had the least occurrences were
living close to the beach and consumed large amounts of Greenshell
Mussel, while the populations with greater occurrence of arthritis
were living inland, further away from the beach, and therefore
consumed much less Greenshell Mussel. This led to the question
of the relationship between the occurrence of Arthritis and Greenshell
The Greenshell Mussels used in the products of AromaNZ are collected
from unpolluted sea area certified by FDA of America and Europe,
as well as by Japanese Ministry of Welfare. The Greenshell Products
of AromaNZ only contain Greenshell Mussels collected from this
1) GreenshellTM Mussel Oil
Mussel powder is usually produced at a ratio of 5:1 (ie. 2000mg of Live Mussel produces Extract of 400mg) while Mussel Oil is produced at a ratio of 125:1. Therefore 50mg of Mussel Oil is an enriched concentrate of 6,250mg of Live Mussel.

Glucosamine belongs to the group of glycosaminoglycans. It is
naturally synthesized in the body and is essential for the generation
of cartilage and the maintenance of health. 1 capsule contains
more than 300mg of Glucosamine.
3) Extract of Shark Cartilage
Chondroitin - Shark cartilage is known to be beneficial for
the joints and widely used. This is because Shark cartilage
contains Chondroitin which is a mucopolysaccharide that helps
protect the joints. This substance is essential for maintaining
health, but our synthesising ability decreases with age which
eventually leads to exposure to disorders such as arthritis.
1 capsule contains more than 150 mg
EPO is well known to have anti-aging properties and is effective
in maintaining healthy skin. EPO helps to keep blood pressure,
blood glucose level, blood cholesterol concentration, as well
as its anti-aging property. EPO also helps to prevent obesity,
and is beneficial to those who are overweight, or who consume
large amounts of animal fat. EPO is also beneficial to those
who have allergies - such as Atopic dermatitis, asthma or those
at a critical age such as menopause. 1 capsule contains more
than 700mg of EPO.
