marine lipid complex rich in ETA''s from the New Zealand Green-Lipped

Mussel, Perna canaliculus. These unique lipids belong to the valuable

nutritional class known as Omega 3 PUFA''s. LYPRINOL is considered to

be the most potent of these Omega 3 lipids.

have shown LYPRINOL to be: 200 times more potent than Max EPATM, 250

times more potent than Green-Lipped Mussel Extract, 350 times more potent

than Evening Primrose Oil, 350 times more potent than Salmon Oil and

400 times more potent than Flax Oil. Freeze-dried concentrated and encapsulated

mussel tissue in its raw state was used originAlly as a natural food

supplement for the prevention of pain normAlly associated with older

individuals experiencing joint and muscle discomfort. Years of research

by Australian and New Zealand scientists now provide us with LYPRINOL,

a natural food supplement that contains the active principles which

scientists have finAlly been able to isolate and patent.

many scientists and government committees around the world that western

diet provides substantiAlly more Omega 6 polyunsaturated fatty acids

relative to Omega 3''s. This leads to our cellular membranes becoming

rich in the Omega 6''s such as arachidonic acid, which is a precursor

to certain molecules that can be responsible for inflammatory processes

associated with arthritis, psoriasis and asthma to name a few. Many

studies have reported that certain lipids from fish and other marine

sources can have a beneficial effect on our overAll health when they

are a part of the diet on a routine basis. LYPRINOL is the ideal way

to supplement our diets to ensure adequate levels are present.

has matured regarding lipid compounds, which have evolved as valuable

nutritional substances. One group of these are the polyunsaturated fatty

acids (PUFA''s). These fatty acids are named by identifying the number

of carbon atoms in their molecule and indicating the number of double

or unsaturated bonds. For instance, a PUFA with eighteen carbons and

three double bonds would be cAlled 18:3 by scientists. Some well known

sources of PUFA''s are the unsaturated cooking oils such as sunflower

and canola oils. Soybean oil is well known for its content of PUFA''s.

Fish oils, which have been researched for their ability to reduce cholesterol

and improve health of the heart and circulatory system, also contain

valuable Omega 3 PUFA''s in fish. They are EPA, DHA and the amazing LYPRINOL.

EPA (eicosapentaenoic acid), the most well known, is usuAlly accompanied

by DHA (docosahexaenoic acid). Eicosa means 20, docosa means 22, pent

means 5 and hex means 6. So then, eicosapentaenoic acid could be described

as 20:5, and docosahexaenoic as 22:6. All this terminology is simply

to bring us to a more detailed understanding for discussion purposes

about LYPRINOL. We may cAll them "Super" Omega 3''s.

is now demonstrating a whole new group of related, but different PUFA''s.

Over twenty years of research has produced a better understanding of

ETA (ecosatetraenoic acid). ETA is a 20:4, a twenty carbon molecule

with four double bonds. These newly found and isolated compounds have

the greatest biological activity of All and show amazing promise for

those who need to supplement with them.

have been extracted from the New Zealand Green-Lipped Mussel, Perna

canaliculus. This unique mussel has been used as food for many years

in that part of the world and seems to have added greatly to the health

of those including it in their diet. One noticeable trait is that they

seem to have a significant decrease in stiffness and joint swelling

and discomfort as they age. This led researchers to try to understand

why this was so. Scientists have been conducting research on the New

Zealand Green-Lipped Mussel now for over thirty years and have been

learning some very important facts. It is acknowledged by many scientists

and government committees around the world that the western diet provides

more Omega 6 PUFA''s relative to Omega 3''s. This leads to our cellular

membranes becoming rich in the Omega 6''s such as arachidonic acid, which

is a precursor to certain molecules that can cause inflammatory processes

associated with arthritis, psoriasis and asthma to name a few. Many

studies have reported that certain lipids from fish and other marine

sources can have a beneficial effect on our overAll health when they

scientists who are aware of this state-of-the-art research that LYPRINOL

has evolved as the most potent of All these "Super GLA''s", regardless

of their source. Independent studies carried out in Australia at the

University of Queensland have shown LYPRINOL to be: 200 more times more

potent than Max EPATM, 250 times more potent than Green-Lipped Mussel

Extract, 350 times more potent than Evening Primrose Oil, 350 times

more potent than Salmon Oil and 400 times more potent than Flax Oil.
