What is TURNER Green Lipped Mussel Lipid Extract?
TURNER Green-Lipped Mussel Lipid Extract (GLMO from Green-Lipped Mussel Oil) is an oil extracted from green-lipped mussels. The end product, in this case, is not the powder from the green-lipped mussel as many people know it, but the oil from the mussel powder, which is about 20 times more concentrated. This oil consists primarily of omega fatty acids, so-called lipids in the form of phospholipids.
Who is behind TURNER green-lipped mussel lipid extract?
New Zealander Noel Turner formulated this unique product. He was one of the pioneers in the 70's who contributed to the sustainable cultivation of the green-lipped mussel. The starting point for TURNER green-lipped mussel lipid extract, or green-lipped mussel oil, is the green-lipped mussel, which grows uniquely in New Zealand in the Marlborough Sounds and which enjoys great popularity as a delicacy under the name "TURNER green-lipped mussels" in METRO markets in Central Europe and in the USA. How Noel developed the oil from the green-lipped mussel into a dietary supplement to pack all the benefits of the green-lipped mussel into a small capsule, read here in Noel's life story (Link to Noel's Life Story).
Where does the green-lipped mussel grow?
The green-lipped mussel (Perna canaliculus), also known as the green-shelled mussel, is native only to New Zealand and is cultivated in aquaculture on ropes in the clean waters of the Marlborough Sounds. This fjord-like protected area is among the purest and most pristine waters in the world.
What does the green-lipped mussel feed on?
The New Zealand green-lipped mussel feeds on phytoplankton carried up to New Zealand by strong currents from the Antarctic regions. By following strict environmental management systems, the cultivation of the green-lipped mussel meets all criteria of ecological sustainability. No artificial feeds, additives, antibiotics, pesticides, or the like are used to cultivate green-lipped mussels.
What is so unique about the green-lipped mussel?
Decades ago, researchers discovered that the Maoris, even in old age, enjoyed an excellent condition of their joints. However, this was only true for the Maoris living on the coast. In search of the cause, the researchers came across the green-lipped mussel, which played a significant role in the diet of the coastal inhabitants. Researchers discovered that the green-lipped mussel had a positive effect on the joints when they compared the eating habits of people living on the coast with those living inland. Furthermore, they found that the latter, with their preference for green-lipped mussels, were much less likely to suffer from inflammatory joint problems than their counterparts living further inland.
How is TURNER green-lipped mussel lipid extract made?
TURNER New Zealand ultrasonic cold extraction technology extracts both omega fatty acids, phospholipids, and carotenoid family members in the absence of heat. Fatty acids play a central role in the metabolism of the human organism. They are important as energy carriers, as cell membrane components, and as starting substances for other substances, such as hormones and metabolic products that influence inflammatory reactions. Omega-3 fatty acids, in particular, occupy a special position among fatty acids because these polyunsaturated fatty acids are essential, i.e., they cannot be produced by the body itself and must be taken in through food or dietary supplements.
Why is a good balance between omega-6 and omega-3 so crucial for the body?
Both omega-3 and omega-6 fatty acids are essential for human life. Both fatty acids interact to control essential processes in the body. One of these is the immune system, which is directly related to a healthy omega-6 to omega-3 balance. It is known that omega-6 starts the inflammatory process, but omega-3 helps to counteract inflammation. So, unsaturated fatty acids need to be supplied through diet or supplements (in the form of oils). Two types of these are omega-6 fatty acids and omega-3 fatty acids. However, both fatty acids must be supplied to the body in a good ratio. Due to the overuse of industrial foods and fatty foods due to refined oils (corn oil, sunflower oil) and meat consumption with corn-fed cattle from factory farms, our body is flooded with omega-6 fatty acids. It can trigger inflammatory reactions in the body in particular. Many people, therefore, without knowing it, do not have an optimal omega-6 to omega-3 balance (25-30:1 or even more unbalanced) in their bodies. An optimal balance of a 4:1 to 1:1 ratio of omega-6 to omega-3 can help reduce inflammation.
What is the difference between animal and plant omega-3?
The body can convert plant-based omega-3s such as alpha-linolenic acid (flax oil, walnut oil, chia seeds, hemp oil) into the even more valuable omega-3s EPA (eicosapentaenoic acid) and DHA (docosahexaenoic acid). The disadvantage is that this conversion only takes place to a minimal extent. Approximately 5-10% of ingested alpha-linolenic acid is converted to EPA and 2-5% to DHA. Often this statistic shows even lower values. Unlike α-linolenic acid, EPA and DHA have the property of lowering blood pressure and blood lipids and the risk of cardiovascular disease. The omega-3 fatty acids EPA and DHA from animal sources our body does not have to convert first but can use them immediately and directly.
What oils are in Turner Green Lipped Mussel Lipid Extract?
The most abundant and effective ingredient in TURNER Green Lipped Mussel Lipid Extract is the oil from the green-lipped mussel. Since we want to offer the full spectrum of polyunsaturated fatty acids, we combine this green-lipped mussel lipid extract with high-quality linseed oil, hemp oil. In addition, Astaxanthin us UAF1000+plant extracts enhance this product to a valuable nutritional supplement. UAF1000+ is a New Zealand plant extract blend whose ingredients are grape seed extracts, pine bark, kiwi fruit, red grape skin, black currant, and boysenberry.
Why do we not use fish oil?
Although wild-caught New Zealand fish quality is excellent, we do not use fish oil in our TURNER-GLMO product. For us, only oil from the green-lipped mussel comes into question for our omega-3 product, as it has several advantages over common fish oils. Green-lipped mussel lipid extract contains the two omega-3 fatty acids EPA and DHA and ETA, an omega-3 fatty acid that has a particularly positive effect on inflammation, and another 15 types of omega-3 fatty acids. Fish oils are often highly processed, are highly heated, and the omega-3 fatty acids are usually added to the product afterward in a synthesized form.
What kind of lipids does TURNER Green Lipped Mussel Lipid Extract contain?
The lipid extract from green-lipped mussels is rich in phospholipids. Phospholipids are the main component of our cell membranes and essential for our cell health. We also add natural Astaxanthin from the blood rain algae to the product. The carotenoids contained in Astaxanthin are potent antioxidants that have quite a few health benefits. Astaxanthin is the most powerful antioxidant ever discovered by science. The combination of Green Lipped Mussel Lipid Extract, Astaxanthin, and UAF1000+ plant extracts make TURNER Green Lipped Mussel Lipid Extract an exceptional product.
Does this product cause unpleasant belch after consumption?
No, the capsules do not cause a fishy aftertaste or unpleasant belching, as is often the case with fish oils. The capsules of TURNER Green Lipped Mussel Lipid Extract are small and extremely easy to swallow.
Why are TURNER GLMO capsules dark and not light like fish oil capsules?
TURNER Green Lipped Mussel Lipid Extract, or TURNER GLMO, is a pure natural product and is guaranteed to be manufactured WITHOUT undesirable additives. We do not use colored capsule shells, so the original color of the product is visible. TURNER Green Lipped Mussel Oil is dark, almost black in color, because it is a concentrated phospholipid oil, which is not stretched by us, for example, with olive oil. Nevertheless, the color may well vary slightly, which can always happen with natural products but is normal. The color results primarily from the combination of the almost black oil, the reddish Astaxanthin, and the dark-colored plant extracts UAF1000+.
Why do we use gelatin capsules?
Omega-3 fatty acids react very sensitively and start to oxidize as soon as they come into contact with oxygen. You probably know this from flaxseed oil, which should be used up as quickly as possible. We make sure that TURNER GLMO is encapsulated airtight. For this, we use bovine gelatin from New Zealand pasture-raised cattle. Despite the airtight capsules, there may be a slight maritime smell of shellfish. However, this does not have a detrimental effect on the quality of the product but is a sign that it is genuine, natural mussel oil without flavor or odor enhancers.
How should I store TURNER Green Lipped Mussel Lipid Extract?
We recommend storing the capsules in a cool and dry place, preferably in the refrigerator, or at least you should make sure that they are protected from the sun or too warm temperatures. So storage in the fridge is not a must, but a recommendation. Should it happen that the capsules were unintentionally exposed to higher temperatures in the summer and stick together, then put them in the refrigerator for some time and then shake the can vigorously. Slight warming has no negative effect on the quality of the product.
Is TURNER Green Lipped Mussel Lipid Extract also suitable for my pet?
Absolutely! If you have a dog or cat at home, especially if they have inflammatory problems due to wear and tear of the joints and consequently pain, it makes sense to give TURNER Green Lipped Mussel Lipid Extract. So, not only can humans benefit from TURNER GLMO, but also their pets and faithful companions, like dogs and cats, are well taken care of with TURNER's special green-lipped mussel omega-3 oil! Your pet will thank you! Also, in equestrian circles, our FREZZOR Omega-3 is recommended for a better performance of horses.
