Mobicosa® is made from the New Zealand Greenlipped™ Mussel, which is a marine shellfish that contains many nutritional benefits. It is the only mussel species in the world to have such nutrients. We are dedicated to provide the best Mussels for Mobicosa® by using specifically selected growing and harvesting areas, in the clean pristine waters of the Marlborough Sounds, New Zealand. It is important to understand that not all New Zealand Green Lipped™ mussels are of the same quality, as they're a farmed species where growth and quality does vary.
Harvesting and Manufacturing
Having sound knowledge of mussel growth cycles, and the indicators to look for, we can offer superior quality all year round. We are so passionate about the end result, we ensure
that every step of our manufacturing is at its best. To obtain the highest quality nutrients, harvesting and processing occurs in the shortest possible time frame, which is crucial to the success of our product.
Our exclusive "One Step" process - NHNZone™, ensures that the full goodness of our mussels are not lost or ruptured in the processing. The less steps taken in processing confirms higher yields of nutrients, unlike conventional freeze drying methods.
When to use Mobicosa®
o Stiffness and pain in your joints
o Joint inflammation
o Joint degeneration (JD) and joint disorders
o Mobility isn't as free as it once was
Arthritic conditions and joint discomfort can be treated. Taking Mobicosa®, a high quality joint and nutritional supplement, will assist in many ways. Taking Mobicosa® regularly prior to the onset of joint discomfort or arthritis, is recommended for increased mobility, and as a preventative for aging joints. This product is highly recommended for the sports person also.
Glycosaminoglycans and Associated Characteristics
GAGS are the modern term for Mucopolysaccharides. These are long chain sulfated amino sugars, meaning that the simple sugar molecule has attached amino and sulfate groups which are negatively charged. This negative charge is usually associated with a positive metallic ion, which is tightly bound to the chain. (A basic reason is our product is an array of marine minerals not available with the commercial chondroitin extracted product.)
Part of the GAG molecule is glucosamine or galactosamine, which is a single sugar molecule that is repeated in a long chain. The repeating double sugars are usually attached to a core protein. The long chain and the stem is the core protein. They can be thought of as organic ion-exchange molecules. Their presence in the connective tissue. The watrous gel-like spaces between cells, helps to normalize bio-exchange - oxygen and nutrients to the cells and the removal of metabolites.
GAGS function in all watrous fluids of the body, blood, mucous synovial fluids, membrane surfaces which decrease as we age. Adding GAGS to the diet helps to restore the youthful structure and function to tissues like the arteries and joint areas. The first effect is improvement to the skin and general well being. This is simply a result of the normalizing function described above, in restoring watrous gel of the tissue to its more youthful condition.In our NHNZone one step process Mussel Powder, the carbohydrate portion ranges according to the harvest, from approximately 21% to 30%.Not all of this is chondroitin, but the carbohydrate includes the natural precursors, proteoglycans and natural combinations.
The overall dry weight percentage of chondroitin sulfate measured several times in tests showed approximately 11% to 15% of the total.
This means that the Carbohydrate portion, proteoglycans is approximately 10-15 %.
NHNZone mussel powder is producing only a natural product with combinations of bioactive nutrients with good health effects in a number of applications. The particular dosage of a synthetically derived product such as the Chondroitins and Glucosamine can not be compared to the natural occurring nutrients in the fresh soft tissue of the mussel that are carefully preserved.
Another important factor is that these Muco's GAGs from our mussel tissue in the embryonic form, easy to digest compared to the cartilage sources from animal tissue.
