Product Information

Aquatone® contains the pure extract of an edible green lipped mussel, Perna canalicus found only in the clear, unpolluted waters surrounding New Zealand. It is taken by millions of people throughout the world to help maintain joint mobility. Studies suggest the active principle in Aquatone® resides in a protein fraction and that its properties are unique to this type of mussel and not demonstrated by other types of shellfish.

In order to appreciate its potential, Aquatone® should be taken for a minimum of four to eight weeks. Many customers choose to take it alongside glucosamine as part of a programme to maintain healthy joints.

I have used Green Lipped Mussel Extract for eight years or more. I discovered Aquatone while searching for a new source and have found it to be of very good quality. The big pills worried me at first but they slip down easily.They taste like I expected. Not harsh at all and their cost is affordable. I recommend purchasing Aquatone without any reservations. This product has helped me enormously and I for one will continue to use it.

We keep buying this as it seems to help our joints. One of us has osteo-arthritis and the other rheumatoid arthritis and it seems to help both of us. Obviously can''t expect total ''cure'', but things do seem to have eased off since taking Aquatone, so we continue.

I have had arthritis in my hands for several years, I have had surgery on both thumbs. This was a trapeziectamy with ligament reconstruction. That surgery was successful although I still have some pain when typing alot.
I started having pain in my left foot and right hip around 8 months ago. I saw a specialist for my foot and had some new insoles made as I previously had plantar fasciitis. The scan on my foot discovered arthritis in my talenvicular joint, I also had severe swelling.
I also had an x ray on my hips with arthritus showing in both.
I had been taking glucosamine and chondroitin gold for many years, so I decided to research any changes i could make to my diet and possibly supplements as I do not want a steroid injection in my foot and hope to deter surgery on my hip.
I read the reviews on natures best green lipped muscle and thought I''d try it....my pain and inflammation are both very much improved, even after 3 weeks.
I think this may also be to slight changes in my diet

Disappointed by the coating, which contains titanium dioxide, which I understand the EU is about to phase out because of its dangers if ingested. Nature''s Best should know better. I am having to scrape the coating off!
Generally, Nature''s Best should move away from tablets and over to capsules as most quality suppliers have done, thereby avoiding binders and coating. It would then be unbeatable!

Thank you for taking the time to leave a review.

Titanium dioxide is a naturally occurring mined substance which certainly form part of the food chain in minuscule amounts especially from the uptake of nutrients in soil grown produce. It is widely used in the production of supplements and medications as well as confectionary, cosmetics, foods and topical products such as sun cream. It is most often used as an opacifier and mixed with other pigments used in coloured gel capsules and tablet coatings.

The titanium dioxide used in our products is approved for use in food products and pharmaceuticals. It is regarded as an inert, non-toxic substance by the relevant regulatory bodies as it is not absorbed across the gut wall. There has been some concern over the use of titanium dioxide in cosmetics, and as a sunscreen in sun protection creams. However this concern relates to a relatively new form of the compound called ultrafine or nanoparticles which are defined as being less than 0.1 microns or 100 nanometres in size. When Titanium Dioxide particles are milled down to this size they become colourless (yet still block the suns rays) and are therefore popular ingredients in modern sunscreen products. It is these nanoparticles that are believed to be able to cross the skin barrier, however there is no data to show that this is causing any health concerns.

The food approved Titanium Dioxide we use is a white opaque material and its particle size is huge compared to nanoparticles and is not absorbed from the gut. We use this material to protect the delicate nutrients in our tablets from UV light damage and to enable us to apply distinctive natural colours to our tablets. These colours are used as part of our quality assurance standards to minimise any risk of tablet batches becoming mixed and to help our customers identify which tablets they are taking.

There do also seem to be several websites which contain negative information about Titanium Dioxide on the basis that if inhaled it may prove to be a health risk. However this is not the case when it is used topically or orally. I have attached a link to our website which contains more information on our excipients.

I hope this helps to reassure you.
