Maori have lived in New Zealand for more than 700 years and know the secrets this bi-valve holds, including it as a staple part of their diet. Referred to as Kuku in Maori language, it was noted that the tribes who had the highest consumption of raw mussel meat had the lowest incidence of arthritis and other inflammatory disorders.

This lead to extensive scientific research over the last 30 years, to find more out about the New Zealand Green-Lipped Mussel (GLM) and its complex concentration of nutrients that are 100% unique to this species. GLM contain; a rare combination of essential fatty acids, a complex array of vitamins, minerals and amino acids, and the real ‘building block ingredients’ for cartilage; Glycosaminoglycans, Glucosamine and Chondroitin sulfate. Nature put everything our joints, cartilage and connective tissue need together in this unique, 100% natural parcel – the Green Lipped Mussel shell.

At the top of the South Island of New Zealand, in the pristine waters of the Marlborough Sounds, is where life begins for our complete joint health combination – KUKU. The Sounds formed over 14,000 years ago when the last ice age ended, and the rising sea levels flooded the coastal valleys. The clear blue water is rich in phytoplankton that has thrived on microalgae abundant in this area. Marine life such as Mussels benefits from this diet, absorbing this protective antioxidant richness and storing it in their flesh.

Uniquely located in the world, New Zealand is a treasure trove of the strongest, purest natural resources and ingredients for human health.
