1 Tripernol soft gel = 4.2 Lyprinol gels
1 Tripernol soft gel = 16.5 Moxxor gels
1 Tripernol soft gel = 11.7 Omega XL gels (50mg capsule)
Tripernol contains 167mg of Green-Lipped Mussel oil per soft gel.
70.2mg of this weight consists of highly bio-available Omega-3s.
In comparison, our major competitors offer:
Lyprinol: 14mg per soft gel
Moxxor: 3.4mg per soft gel
Omega XL: 4.8mg per soft gel (50mg capsules)
When these figures are combined with the unit cost per capsule, Tripernol emerges as clearly the most cost-effective source of mussel oil Omega-3 available on the market.

From Gas Chromatography–Chemical Ionization–Mass Spectrometric Fatty Acid Analysis of a Commercial Supercritical Carbon Dioxide Lipid Extract from New Zealand Green-Lipped Mussel (Perna canaliculus)

ABSTRACT: Supercritical fluid extracts of New Zealand green-lipped mussels (NZGLM) have been suggested to have therapeutic properties related to their oil components. The large
number of minor FA in NZGLM extract was characterized by a GC–CIMS/MS method that excels at identification of double-bond positions in FAME. The extract contained five major lipid classes: sterol esters, TAG, FFA, sterols, and polar lipids. The total FA content of the lipid extract was 0.664 g/mL. Fifty-three unsaturated FA (UFA) were fully identified, of which 37 were PUFA, and a further 21 UFA were detected for which concentrations were too low for assignment of double-bond positions. There were 17 saturated FA, with 14:0, 16:0, and 18:0 present in the greatest concentration. The 10 n-3 PUFA detected included 20:5n-3 and
22:6n-3, the two main n-3 FA; n-3 PUFA at low concentrations were 18:3, 18:4, 20:3, 20:4, 21:5, 22:5, 24:6, and 28:8. There were 43 UFA from the n-4, n-5, n-6, n-7, n-8, n-9, n-10, n-11 families, with 16:2n-4, 16:1n-5, 18:1n-5, 18:2n-6, 20:4n-6, 16:1n-7, 20:1n-7, 16:1n-9, 18:1n-9, and 20:1n-9 being the most abundant. In general, we estimated that FAME concentrations greater than 0.05% (w/w) were sufficient to assign double-bond positions. In total, 91 FA were detected in an extract of the NZGLM, whereas previous studies of fresh flesh from the NZGLM had reported identification of 42 FA. These data demonstrate a remarkable diversity of NZGLM FA.
