Mussel has been shown to have significant anti-inflammatory, gastroprotective and even free radical scavenging properties.
Uniquely New Zealand
New Zealand Greenshell™ Mussel
Greenshell™ Mussels are native to the clean pristine waters of New Zealand. Specially designed modern marine farms located in the Marlborough Sounds on New Zealand’s South Island cultivate and harvest this unique mollusc.
In over 30 years of laboratory and clinical study, Greenshell™ Mussel has been shown to have significant anti-inflammatory, gastroprotective and even free radical scavenging properties.
Greenshell™ Mussel Powder contains many vitamins, especially the B-complex group and a broad range of minerals and trace elements. It is also rich in proteins, omega 3 fatty acids and mucopolysaccharides.

Effectively called “The purple gold of the beehive”.
New Zealand Propolis
Propolis is a very powerful natural product produced by bees. It has been used to treat disease with great success. Propolis also often termed Bee Glue, is a natural resinous substance gathered by honey bees, from buds of various trees. For this reason Propolis is an extremely complicated mixture of substances from the plant kingdom.
When photosynthesising cells die, flavonoids are released and appear in plant juice, in honey and in resin. Bees gather these fluids which are rich in flavonoids, from the plants and manufacture from them resinous material called Propolis. Bees themselves use Propolis as a natural antiseptic, with which they close openings in their hives, encrust hive invaders and prevent disease.
Flavonoids, are a class of natural products of high pharmacological potency. Their occurrence is widespread in the plant kingdom. Approximately 500 varieties of flavonoids are known. The high content of flavonoids in Propolis is attributed to its success as a product itself. For centuries, preparations which contain flavonoids as the principal physiologically active constituents have been used by laymen and physicians in attempts to treat human disease. There are nine flavonoids in New Zealand Propolis, these are unique from the mix of flavonoids in Propolis of other origins.
Flavonoids may be able to suppress the information of free radicals by binding of heavy metal in ions which are known to catalyse many processes leading to the appearance of full radicals. There are four functions that are characteristic of New Zealand Propolis, Anti-oxidant activity, Anti-microbial property (anti bacterial and anti viral), Chelates heavy metals (removes these from the body), Immunostimulatory.
Aqueous and alcohol extracts of Propolis inhibited the replication of some plant and animal viruses. The effect of Propolis preparations on wound healing and tissue regeneration have long been recognised.
The benefit of Flavonoids (Propolis as opposed to prescription medicine) are numerous – the most important, however, is that due to its natural source it causes no side effects and is totally safe. For those reasons Propolis has been effectively called “The purple gold of the beehive”.
You should take Propolis when you are suffering any abnormal health symptoms or you feel poorly. We offer Propolis in either capsules or tablets. There is no conformed method as to how Propolis is best taken and this ultimately depends on the patients symptoms. It has been said that Propolis works wonderfully well in combination with other medicines or with plant extracts and essential oils. In almost all cases the effect of other medicines is enhanced when taken in combination with Propolis.
From start to finish, colostrum harvested from cows raised in New Zealand is superior to any other colostrum in the world
Colostrum is Mother Nature’s first food likely the very first nourishment you ever received as an infant. It is the nutrient-rich fluid that a mammal mother’s body produces right after giving birth, and just before her milk “comes in.” Colostrum is dense with antibodies, proteins, antioxidants, and essential vitamins. It’s the perfect first meal for a new-born baby. It’s also the perfect dietary supplement for adults and children for the rest of their lives. In recent years, the colostrum of dairy cows has been found to benefit humans in a multiplicity of ways. The discovery of colostrum’s benefits is the most important to date.
Where Does Colostrum Come From?
The idea of harvesting colostrum isn’t a new one. Dairy farmers have been collecting colostrum for centuries to feed to calves that lose their mothers during the birthing process. Just like milk, colostrum flows naturally from a cow’s udder. Today, it isn’t just baby calves that are benefiting from colostrum collection.
Is All Colostrum the Same?
More than 20 companies currently produce products containing bovine colostrum. But the quality, purity, and safety of the colostrum, along with the methods of collection and production vary greatly. What makes the difference? – Where the colostrum comes from.
The Superiority of New Zealand Colostrum
From start to finish, colostrum harvested from cows raised in New Zealand is superior to any other colostrum in the world. This is all due to the ideal grazing climate, the highly regulated farming techniques, and a multi-million dollar investment in the equipment necessary to best process colostrum. No other colostrum can compare.
