About Us

Brent Marsden Hi, my name is Brent Marsden (founder of GreenLippedMusselGuide.Com). For a number of years I suffered from severe back and knee debilitation. After numerous experiments with different natural treatments for arthritis and other types of inflammation – I finally discovered a health supplement that personally transformed my life. That supplement was green lipped mussel extract. Due to there being very little high quality reliable information on the internet on the subject – I made it my personal “crusade” to attempt to get the message out to others who may be in a similar situation to me. Read my life changing experience of green lipped mussel extract now.

I’m not a health professional of any kind (see disclaimer). I am a survivor of debilitating arthritic joint pain/back pain and a committed enthusiast of the amazing long term benefits of green lipped mussel powder.

I live in one of the many beachside suburbs of Auckland, New Zealand with my partner and two very spoiled Scottish Terrier dogs named Doogle and Daisy.

I have tried to provide you with the latest and highest quality information available on the topic of green lipped mussel and related products and treatments for arthritis, joint pain and other inflammatory conditions. I openly invite my visitors to leave messages and questions at the end of most articles, so I can try to help them.

Xtend-Life Natural Products For Joint Mobility And Arthritis Relief!

Relieve the pain of arthritis by combining Xtend-Life Green Lipped Mussel Extract and Xtend-Life Fish Oil.

Xtend-Life Natural Products is a family owned business operating from state-of-the-art facilities in the manufacturing hub of Christchurch, New Zealand. It may not be a brand that springs quickly to mind but, given it's international reputation for quietly providing truly superior quality natural vitamin and mineral supplements,  it certainly deserves to have a much bigger industry profile. With it's emphasis on advanced scientific research and the unsurpassed quality of it's product ingredients, Xtend Life Natural Products should be your first choice for all your green lipped mussel extract and general health supplement needs.

Yes, I know you may be thinking that you've heard these kinds of claims about supplement companies a hundred times before – but what I'm telling you about Xtend Life really is genuine. I've used their products myself daily for the last 5 years – with astonishing results (read my personal experience of how Xtend Life green lipped mussel powder combined with their omega 3/dha fish oil supplement restored my knee and back degeneration). If you don't believe me, read some of the pages and pages of genuine testimonials from many happy customers (copies of which are all on file for verification at the companies head office in Christchurch, New Zealand). This is one very special company that truly deserves your undivided attention. Be prepared to be impressed.

The Xtend-Life natural product range includes products to assist with general health, brain and nervous system, joint mobility and arthritis, sexual health, diabetes, colds and flu, and heart/arteries. Those products which specifically target joints and arthritis are listed as follows:

Xtend-Life Green Lipped Mussel Extract (Powder)

Although the most well known brands of green lipped mussel are Lyprinol followed closely by Moxxor and Seatone, one smaller brand known as Xtend-Life Green Lipped Mussel Powder focuses heavily on the quality of it's natural products. When shopping for green lipped mussel extract, the quality of the raw ingredients, the time of year within which they are harvested and the method/time frame within which they are processed are all critical to the overall efficacy of the end product. I can say with complete confidence (having personally used both Lyprinol and the Xtend-Life GLM Powder daily for more than 3 years) that Xtend-Life Green Lipped Mussel Powder is superior to Lyprinol in every way.

It is all very well to make such a bold statement of choice – but what is it that makes Xtend-Life Green Lipped Mussel Powder so superior to all the other brands? The secret is in the processing. When you cook, freeze or extract oil from these mussels you also extract all the major health-giving nutrients at the same time. The only way to maximise all the benefits of green lipped mussel is to eat them raw – not cooked or processed. Now, I adore the flavour of mussels, but to be able to eat them raw in the quantities required would be almost physically impossible. Xtend-Life uses a unique form of processing which allows it to maintain all the extraordinary nutrients which are only found in their raw state. The live mussels are converted into the finished powder within 30 minutes of being harvested. They are neither cooked nor frozen during this unique process. Most other brands use cooked mussels and take days to process them – leaving little of the active ingredients within the mussels remaining. Xtend-Life only harvests mussels at the correct time of the year when green lipped mussels have the highest nutrient levels . Having first used Lyprinol with only poor to average results, it wasn't until I switched to using Xtend-Life Green Lipped Mussel Powder that I noticed significant improvement in my knee and back health (read my full report here). I put this down to the processing and overall superior quality of the raw ingredient.

I only recommend Xtend-Life Green Lipped Mussel Powder for the following reasons:

  • Full 6-Month Money Back Guarantee on all purchases – where else will you find such a great refund policy.
  • Highest Quality Ingredients – download your free copy of the Xtend-Life Ltd Green Lipped Mussel Powder Buyers Guide to discover how important this  one fact is for getting the best results and why this is the only brand you should consider buying.
  • Value For Money – lower required daily dose means your purchase lasts much longer than other brands such as Lyprinol or Seatone.
  • High Customer Satisfaction/Testimonials – read some of the genuine testimonials – file copies of all testimonials exist for your reference if required.
  • Great Customer Service – genuinely friendly and personal customer service.
  • Competitive Low Prices – loyalty discount for regular customers.
  • Free Shipping – free shipping anywhere in the world for orders over $60.
  • Fast Delivery From Xtend Life New Zealand – customers regularly remark on how fast their package deliveries are, compared to package mail delivered within the USA. See customer testimonials above.
  • Educational and Informative Health Blog – this natural health blog is where you can ask the company any questions on any health condition you may have. The quality of the replies will impress you. All questions are answered by the founder and CEO Warren Matthews – who has an extensive and independent view of the health industry as it stands today. If you do nothing else today – join Warren's blog – it's one of the few blogs that I guarantee you'll actually read every week – the quality is so high.

Other Xtend-Life “joints and arthritis” products include:

  • Arthrit-Eze – formulated for those individuals who require advanced inflammatory joint protection.
  • Bone-Protec – This contains the full spectrum of nutrients needed to build strong bones.
  • Omega 3/DHA Fish Oil – Xtend Life fish oil is proven to be two and a half times more potent than ‘normal' omega 3 / dha fish oils.
  • Total Balance – their foundation multi-supplement designed for general good health. The range includes total balance men’s, total balance women’s, total balance unisex, premium total balance and neuro natural.

Xtend-Life Skincare Range

To Xtend-Life your skin is important too. Recently they launched their all natural skincare range for men and women. Designed to reduce the visible signs of aging and produce smooth even skin. Xtend Life promotes the fact the all the ingredients are totally natural and, as a result, there is nothing contained in their skin care range that could not be eaten safely by anyone. What an incredible statement to be able to make about any skin care products. The quality of the ingredients is without question. Read some of the amazing feedback from happy customers who have struggled for years to find a skincare range that didn't react negatively with their skin types. The Xtend-Life skincare range includes the age defense active day cream, eye serum body lotion, serum body lotion hydrating mask and cleansing mask.

Xtend Life Scam Issues

As human beings it is natural, especially when considering buying something, to wonder if there is any element of scam involved. If you have these concerns in relation to Xtend-life scams – allow me to reassure you.

Firstly, as I have mentioned before, I have been using Xtend-Life natural products for more than 5 years. I can tell you from my own experience that Xtend Life in is probably one of the most ethical and decent companies I have ever dealt with – for any product anywhere. I have never had any cause for complaint in all that time – in fact quite the reverse. I can even remember on one occasion where I made a mistake in my order and called the company to say that I had received the wrong item in the mail and that it was my fault – not theirs. They, without hesitation, shipped the correct item to me and suggested I keep the incorrect item with their compliments “free of charge” rather than me having to post it back. I was astonished and very impressed. I call that incredible service in this day and age. Feel free to read the Xtend Life reviews, feedback and testimonials on their web site. These are not fake testimonials, they are all genuine.

Their personalised service is very professional (and friendly) and, as I live in New Zealand,  I have even visited their manufacturing facilities whilst I was on holiday in Christchurch about two years ago. Any Xtend-life scams are fictitious, no doubt put “out there” by envious competitors. Don't be alarmed  – you will find this company to be very honest, helpful and accessible.

By now you are no doubt wondering where to buy xtend life products? They are only available online (not in stores) – click here for more information.

New Zealand Greenshell™ Mussels – great on a plate!

What are New Zealand Greenshell™ Mussels?

IMPORTANT: Are you looking for information on greenshell mussels in relation to the treatment of arthritis and other inflammatory conditions? Visit this page – it would be more helpful to you!

To avoid any confusion, New Zealand Greenshell™ Mussels is a registered trademark. Suppliers of fresh farmed greenshell mussels (perna canaliculus) from New Zealand's unique and respected aquaculture industry use this trademark name as a brand when marketing their high quality seafood products to international shellfish markets. These products are destined for human consumption in restaurants, supermarkets and other food related industries.

New Zealand Greenshell™ Mussels are farmed in the unpolluted waters of the Marlborough Sounds – a beautiful, natural and unspoiled environment in the north of the South Island of NZ. This trademark allows marketing of green lipped mussels more as a food rather than as health supplements such as greenshell mussel powder or mussel oil extract.

After harvesting, the farmers who grow them will drive them to the port area of Picton, where companies who act as processors of the mussels will begin preparing them for whatever form they will be used. Some will be half-shelled (meaning part of the shell is removed for table appearances) or full-shelled (meaning only the flesh inside remains) ready to be used in recipes for restaurants all over the world.

The term is often associated with the Greenshell™ Mussel Cruises which are operated out of the town of Havelock during the summer months. Greenshell mussel cruises operate through the Pelorus and Kenepuru Sounds – home to some of the best mussel farms in the country. Whilst cruising, along the way, enjoying the taste of freshly steamed greenshell mussels and a glass of top New Zealand wine which is in line with typical local New Zealand hospitality.

New Zealand Greenlip Mussel Natural Anti-Inflammatory Properties

New Zealand Green Lip Mussel – What is it?

IMPORTANT: Are you looking for information on greenlip mussel and the treatment of arthritis and other inflammatory conditions? Try this page – I think it's more what you're looking for!

New Zealand greenlip mussel is an abbreviated name used to describe the more commonly known New Zealand green lipped mussel (the scientific name is perna canaliculus). It is a large green and gold coloured mollusc or shellfish which is found, almost exclusively, in the waters surrounding New Zealand. It is known, without question, to contain fatty acids and other natural compounds with anti-inflammatory properties.

Greenlip mussel is also known by a number of other similar names including green mussel, greenshell mussel, New Zealand mussels and perna mussels. Green lip mussel is endemic to the coastal waters of New Zealand. The indigenous people of New Zealand are the Maori. They settled the land more than 1000 years ago and, to this day, greenlip mussel remains a staple part of their diet. Although western influences have impacted these people's traditional lifestyles, many Maori suffer less from the effects of inflammatory conditions like arthritis and joint pain due largely to the amount of lipid extract contained in the mussel in their diet.

It is more than 35 years since New Zealand scientists formally identified the anti-inflammatory properties of greenlip mussels. Since then a thriving international industry has developed marketing fresh whole shelled or unshelled mussels to many parts of the world. Research on the benefits of New Zealand green-lipped mussel has seen an explosion in green lipped mussels supplements produced for those who suffer from inflammatory conditions such as arthritis, joint pain and crohn's disease. The green lipped mussel capsules and green lipped mussel extract (or powder) are the two most common forms of supplement. Complementary products that enhance these green lip supplements include omega 3/dha fish oil capsules and certain plant sterols found in foods like rice bran oil and sterol rich spreads.

Dried whole green lip mussel powder consists of the following:

  • Protein (as amino acids)            60 – 62 %
  • Complex Carbohydrates           12 – 13 %
  • Chondroitin Sulfates                 11 – 12 %
  • Lipids                                        4 –   5 %
  • Minerals                                    5 –   6 %

There are a number of important health benefits derived from consuming greenlip mussels (or in their powdered form). They include the two main ones which are relief from joint pain and reduced inflammation . Other less well known benefits are healthier skin hair and nails, improved blood circulation, a boosted immunity, healthier nerve cell functioning and stronger teeth and bones to name but a few.

Some people may have concerns as to any side effects which may occur whilst consuming green lip mussels. Due to this product being so whole and natural, the only cases of anything resembling side effects would be where people have consumed the product when they knew they had an allergy to shellfish. There have been some rare cases of diarrhea, nausea, and mild skin rashes. All in all green lip mussel seems remarkably safe – as ever you would expect from a product based so closely to nature. If more detail about side effects is important to you, I suggest you may like to do an online search for articles by: paul easton who specialises in greenlip mussel topics – this may pre-empt your concerns.
