Containing the pure extract of an edible green lipped mussel, Perna canalicus, found only in the clear unpolluted water surrounding New Zealand. Much research has been conducted internationally to test the efficacy of green lipped mussel extract (GLME). The most important early study was conducted in Glasgow under the supervision of Dr Robin Gibson and the positive results were published. Subsequently, a double blind, placebo-controlled study that lasted six months was carried out in France involving more than 200 respondents. Daily intake during this study was 1,380mg of green lipped mussel extract, and positive results were published by Dr Herni Billard.
Concurrent studies have also been conducted in New Zealand to isolate and characterise the active principle in GLME. These suggest that the activity resides in a protein fraction and that its properties are unique and not demonstrated by other types of shellfish. Further research investigating the properties of GLME has been published in Japan.
