Early research indicated that simply drying and encapsulating green-lipped mussels did not produce a consistent product. Additionally, non-active components of the mussels diluted the activity.

Two processes were combined to overcome this problem:

  • First, a new and innovative Cold Extraction method was designed which both extracted the mussel from the shell and quickly extracted the active fraction.
  • Second, freeze-drying was used as the means of preserving and stabilizing the product.

It is important to note that Seatone GLME is the only green-lipped mussel extract to be manufactured using this unique activity-conserving process.

Vitaco has invested over 35 years of research into the production and effectiveness of Seatone GLME. As the green-lipped mussels reach peak condition at 18 months of age, they are harvested and shipped live in refrigerated trucks to Vitaco factory. The mussels are transferred to cool storage and processed through a unique cold extraction process, which is completely natural, avoiding the use of solvents. This results in a highly active freeze dried extract of green-lipped mussels - Seatone. This extract is milled to produce a fine powder and encapsulated in hard gelatin Seatone capsules.
