For generations the native coastal Maori population of New Zealand has consumed raw New Zealand Green Lipped Mussels as a primary part of their diet. This unique mussel is known scientifically as 'Perna canaliculus'. For centuries, it has provided an excellent source of protein, vitamins, minerals and extremely valuable Omega-3 fatty acids. For many hundreds of years, the Maoris would harvest the mussels growing naturally on the seashores and would eat them raw. Even though they saw the mussel as an important part of their diet, they did not realise the benefits they were gaining. The Green Lipped Mussel possesses a profile of Omega-3 essential fatty acids which are unique to its species. The presence of this rich source of essential fatty acids provides the mussel with potent soothing action.
