Greenshell™ Mussel: The Science

For generations, native coastal Maori tribes have harvested and consumed raw New Zealand Greenshell™ Mussels as a primary part of their diet. The anti-inflammatory value of mussels was first discovered by studying the diets of the Māori. Researchers observed that the coastal Māori, whose staple diet included Greenshell™ mussels, had lower levels of arthritis than Māori residing inland. This initial observation in the 1970’s has been followed by decades of research studying the effects of supplemental Greenshell™ mussel powder on a variety of inflammatory conditions.
