Are Aqua Cultured Green Lipped Mussels Treated with Antibiotics

Estimated Reading Time: < 1 minute

Green Lipped Mussels used in GLX3 do not contain antibiotics, nor GMO ingredients. The aquaculture methods used in New Zealand for Green Lipped Mussels differ dramatically from those used in farm raised catfish and salmon. They are not “fed” anything by man. They are filter feeders of phytoplankton that occur naturally in the exceptionally clean waters off New Zealand. They are not raised in the kind of closed environment of many fish farms.  A google search will confirm this. Search “antibiotics AND green lipped mussel” and you will come up with zero related articles. Do the same with “antibiotics AND salmon” and you will find a lot of scary results.

At GLX3, our Green Lipped Mussels are never frozen or heated, keeping all enzymes and nutrients alive.

GLX3 is the closest thing to a raw whole food! The lipids are extracted at room temperature with minimal pressure in order to naturally preserve all the powerful natural polar long chain fatty acids in their most natural state. (This is like extra virgin oil).
