MOXXOR is the most powerful concentrate of all-natural omega-3s and antioxidants on the planet, exclusively from the pristine environment of New Zealand.
Studies have shown that diets high in omega-3s safely assist in reducing pain and illnesses associated with heart disease, cirrhosis of the liver, asthma, rheumatoid arthritis, osteoarthritis, depression, dry-eye, psoriasis, and allergies.
In addition to unadulterated green-lipped mussel oil, our complete wellness product not only is a vital omega-3 source but also contains the world’s preeminent antioxidant. This antioxidant comes from the husks of sauvignon blanc grape seeds found only in the Marlborough region of New Zealand. Research has shown that antioxidants like those found in MOXXOR effectively combat free radicals and aging. Learn more about the benefits and uses of MOXXOR on our FAQ page.

MOXXOR combines the two most powerful all-natural supplements in their class, the preeminent omega-3s extracted from New Zealand green-lipped mussels and the potent antioxidants extracted from New Zealand sauvignon blanc grape seed husks. Both of these natural products come from the pristine Marlborough Sounds region, which enjoys ecological conditions that occur nowhere else in the world.
An antioxidant is a biochemical that can neutralize harmful molecules in our bodies known as free radicals. Free radicals are produced during normal metabolism and cell function, as well as pollutants in our air, water and food, and have the ability to oxidize and damage our body's cells. It is for this reason that scientists believe that 5 to 8 servings per day of antioxidant rich fruits and vegetables can benefit your health, but consuming this much on a daily basis can be a challenge at our modern pace of life.
Looking to provide a complete world-class wellness product, MOXXOR has added two powerful superfoods. MOXXOR takes the exceptionally potent Sauvignon Blanc grapeseed husk and refines it to capture the world’s preeminent antioxidant along with the powerful immune-support and anti-aging properties of the New Zealand Kiwifruit seed that is teeming with all 8 members of the vitamin E family. Researchers have shown that antioxidants effectively combat free-radicals and aging. The antioxidants found in MOXXOR are free from genetically modified material, heavy metals, arsenic, toxins, and pesticides.
A standard known as ORAC (oxygen radical absorption capacity) is often used to compare the relative strength of antioxidants. The acai berry has received considerable attention as a naturally potent antioxidant in recent years, yet as you will see below, it rates significantly lower on the ORAC scale than the MOXXOR grape seed husk extract.
The quality and effectiveness of MOXXOR owe much to New Zealand’s pure, pristine environment. The people of New Zealand have put in place stringent regulations to preserve the environment in its natural state.
MOXXOR uses only the highest-quality marine and agricultural products, grown under sustainable farming systems.
All green-lipped mussels are grown under a sustainable farming program that ensures the long-term viability of the industry with minimum impact on the environment. This program ensures the traceability of the mussels from the farm right through to the market.
All mussel farming and processing in the Marlborough Sounds is strictly controlled by New Zealand's Ministry of Agriculture ("MAF") to ensure that the mussels meet the highest international quality standards. The growing waters are monitored daily by an independent party to ensure that the mussels are grown naturally in clean waters.
The New Zealand Ministry of Agriculture has a memorandum of understanding with the USFDA to guarantee the quality of mussels exported from New Zealand to the United States of America.
Grape Seed Extract
All grapes in Marlborough are grown under a sustainable viticulture program that ensures the long-term viability of the wine industry with minimum impact on the environment. This program ensures the traceability of the grapes from the vineyard right through the winemaking process.
Thanks to the quality of the growing method and environment, the grapes produce very high levels of natural antioxidants. A natural process is used to manufacture the extract from the seeds of these grapes. The extract is then carefully preserved to maximize the antioxidant value.
