MariPlex-GLM® is an exclusive bioactive glyco-amino marine isolate from the New Zealand Green Lipped Mussel (Perna canaliculus) that is backed by over 35 years of clinical research. This specific isolate is the only of its kind certified for its Matrix Metallaprotease (MMP)-Inhibiting properties – and it is completely different from other Green Lipped Mussel powders or extracts. MMPs are enzymes produced by the body that control the breakdown of connective tissue in response to the body’s natural regeneration and replacement processes. Normal aging and injury can cause MMPs to become overactive – leading to the breakdown of collagen and cartilage. This results in excessive wear and tear on the joints.
MariPlex-GLM® (found exclusively in Health Direct’s BeActive) helps to inhibit the activity of MMPs, thus helping to lessen the damage to collagen, cartilage, and other connective tissues – and helps temporarily mediate minor pain and inflammation caused by this deterioration.*
New Zealand Green Lipped Mussel is one of the joint health ingredients found in BeActive.
