Green-Lipped Mussels Omega-3 Oils Join Moxxor, NaturalNews
by Mike Adams, the Health Ranger, NaturalNews Editor
(NaturalNews) The world of omega-3 superfoods just experienced a breakthrough. A new company called "Moxxor" has introduced a marine omega-3 oil supplement derived from green-lipped mussels grown and harvested in the aquaculture farms of New Zealand. This story explains why I'm endorsing this company, its products and its direct-sales compensation plan, how your support of Moxxor benefits NaturalNews, and how I came to be a product formulation advisor to the Moxxor organization.
As you read this, remember: I'm a skeptic when it comes to direct sales companies. I've been approached by dozens over the years, and I've turned them all down. And why? Because most of the products I've seen in direct sales companies aren't very impressive. Few companies operate with the kind of integrity I demand of companies I choose to publicize. But as you'll learn here, Moxxor is truly a unique company, and one that's positioned to take off in 2009.
But to explain why, I first have to tell you about Noel.
Noel Turner, fisherman turned Moxxor CEONoel is the most high-energy New Zealander I've ever met. He waltzed right over to me after I finished an on-stage presentation to 500 people about South American rainforest herbs and gleefully introduced himself. Pumping my hand and grinning from ear to ear, he said his name was Noel Turner, and he was starting a health supplement network marketing company that would become a billion-dollar enterprise.
Sure. Right. Whatever. I hear it all the time. "I'm the ultimate skeptic on health products," I told him. "And I've only recommended one network marketing company, and that's the Amazon Herb Co." I'm not even a distributor for that company, by the way. All my recommendations for AHC have been on a 100% volunteer basis.
That didn't break his grin, not even for a second. He said he was a self-made millionaire, and he and his twin brother (Johnny) had made their fortune in aquaculture. Specifically, they farmed green-lipped mussels in the fjords of New Zealand.
Green-lipped mussels? Visions of clammy Vulcans came to mind. I didn't really know what green-lipped mussels were, and I frankly wasn't that interested at the time. Noel didn't push the issue; he just flicked a business card into my hand, enthusiastically shook it twice for good measure, and said I'd be hearing from him.
Fast forward twelve months.
One day I get an interesting package in the mail. Upon opening it, I discover it contains six bottles of nutritional supplements made from -- guess what? -- green-lipped mussel oil.
Suddenly I remembered the conversation... New Zealand, Noel Turner, ah yes, it's all making sense now. A note in the package said, "Try Moxxor, Mike. We're launching in four months. This is the nutritional supplement you've been waiting for. - Noel Turner."
Trying Moxxor for myselfSince Noel had gone through the trouble of sending me the product, I decided to at least do some research and see what he could possibly be so excited about. So I turned to Google and our own NaturalNews Naturalpedia, where I found numerous references to green-lipped mussel oil.
It turns out green-lipped mussel oil has remarkable anti-inflammatory properties. While I've been recommending astaxanthin and other omega-3 oils for their anti-inflammatory properties, this looked to me like something else I could recommend to readers who wanted to take a nutritional approach to supporting the body's healthy response to inflammation in a way that's safer and far less expensive than pharmaceuticals. I also knew omega-3s were great for supporting healthy moods and healthy neurological development in children. The Moxxor product also contains a healthy dose of DHA, the fatty acid linked to healthy neurological function in children (it's found naturally in breast milk).
Further research also revealed this oil to be extraordinarily good at supporting skin health, heart health and healthy circulation -- not surprising, given all the incredible news about omega-3 oils we've been reporting on NaturalNews for nearly five years. You can see our online presentation about Moxxor, by the way, at: http://www.naturalnews.com/MoxorDemoNN.asp
So I decided to try it. I popped a couple of the small Moxxor pills into my mouth and headed to the gym for a challenging workout.
Putting Moxxor to the testThat's where I gave my body a real workout: Pilates, Capoeira, jumping rope, poi spinning, pushups and handstands... I did Spiderman crawls across the floor, dynamic contraction strength training and weird floor exercises I can't even begin to describe. I went home knowing I'd be sore and inflamed the next day. (My lower back usually takes the worst hit from a day of exercise like that. It's typically sore for days...)
To my great astonishment, I woke up the next morning an hour early. I felt wide awake, full of energy and ready to take on the day. What was up with that? I actually wanted to sleep another hour, but since I was up, I decided to start juicing and get an early start on the morning.
That's when I realized my back didn't hurt. It wasn't sore at all. It wasn't all crunched up like it usually is after a hard workout. And I didn't even take any astaxanthin, either! Could this Moxxor green-lipped mussel oil actually work so quickly to ease my pain? To this day, I can't make that claim with absolute certainty, but in my mind, Moxxor has without question supported my body's ability to respond to the stress of exercise in a healthy, balanced way!
This experience reinforced my respect for the potential nutritional power of green-lipped mussel oil. In all my years of covering nutritional products, I've only found two products that contributed so much to my physical performance (including exercise recovery): Astaxanthin and Moxxor green-lipped mussel oil. It's interesting that they both come from the ocean, isn't it?
Connecting with the TurnersIt wasn't long before I picked up the phone and called back Noel Turner. I admitted I was really impressed with the effects of the product, but for me to recommend something like this (especially given that it's a direct sales company), I would have to check him out in a lot more detail. (Due diligence is a very important part of my work as a natural health journalist.)
I needed to know the founders, how they lived day to day, what's their philosophy, do they have business experience, is the product really pristine, what's their dedication to environmental protection, and so on.
"Well fly out to California and visit our headquarters," Noel said. "You can see the whole operation and meet the family." He offered to pick me up at the airport in his "Moxxor mobile" (which was a luxury Mercedes that goes really, really fast, I later discovered...)
At this point, I was intrigued enough to get on a plane and just go. I figured, well maybe there's a chance this is not the real deal, but there's also a possibility this is something truly amazing, and it's my job to check these things out for my readers, so I'm going.
And I did.
Speeding along in the Moxxor mobileAt the airport in Orange County, Noel and his brother Johnny met me at the curbside pickup area, driving their luxury Mercedes sedan. I hopped in the back seat and soon discovered Noel's superb high-speed driving skills. (The Mercedes has amazing handling characteristics.)
Seventeen minutes later, we arrived at the $10 million Moxxor building. I was invited upstairs, to the corporate offices, where I met the top management team. From there, we sat down for several hours of questions and answers, all powered by superfoods and organic produce. (Noel drinks LivingFuel superfood, by the way. He learned about it on NaturalNews! He also likes DragonHerbs.com products, which are high-end Chinese Medicine formulas.)
Between you and me, I grilled these guys. Taking the skeptic's point of view, I asked them all the tough questions: What's the CO2 footprint of your product? (Try that on some business people sometime... it'll leave them scratching their heads.) How are the green-lipped mussels fed? How are they harvested? What's the highest temperature reached during processing? Are there any chemical solvents used in the extraction process? What scientific research do you have backing the health benefits of green-lipped mussel oil? What are the exact milligrams of each of the three ingredients in the formula?
Without going into all the detailed answers here (there's another place for that), I can share that Moxxor passed with flying colors. I was genuinely impressed by all the answers they provided. They're on-board with the philosophy of doing well by doing good, and they have a clear, inspired vision of bringing healthy living to millions of adults, children and senior citizens, many of whom are dangerously deficient in fish oils, omega-3 oils and vitamin D. (And green-lipped mussel oil, in my view, is a phenomenal combination of all three!)
I said, "Okay, well what's next? You want me to write about your company, right?" Because that's what companies usually want me to do. And it's my job to sort out the junk companies from the quality companies. I could already tell this was a rare find -- a quality company that had a bright future.
But they had other plans.
The Moxxor / NaturalNews partnershipInstead of asking me to write about the company, they invited me to be part of the product formulation advisory board! I was asked to offer guidance on future product formulations, just to make sure they stayed at the forefront of the industry and used only the very best ingredients in their products. Zero junk, zero fillers, zero chemicals, that sort of thing.
No problem, I said. I'd love to bring my nutritional knowledge to the table so I can help your company stay at the lead of this industry. The network marketing industry needs more high-integrity companies, especially given all the junk that exists in the marketplace.
That's when they asked that I delay mentioning Moxxor on NaturalNews for a while and that I hold off on publishing any signup links on the website until they were good and ready with a sufficient inventory of product.
Signup links? I asked them, "What are you talking about? I'm writing about your company as a journalist. Why are you talking about recruitment?"
"Simple," Noel answered, "Because we want to offer NaturalNews a founding, top-level distribution position in the company when it launches."
Starting at the very topStop the music for a second. I've made a career out of saying no to nutritional supplement companies, and in doing so, I've established a hard-won reputation for telling the truth about supplements, anti-cancer nutrients and the dangers of pharmaceuticals.
In that process, I've helped many supplement companies become extremely successful. I don't know how many hundreds or thousands of distributors I've helped get involved with the Amazon Herb Co., but I know they come up to me all the time in public and thank me for introducing them. And yet during all that time, I never made a dime from them.
That's when I remembered my 7 Principle of Mindful Wealth (http://www.naturalnews.com/Report_Mindful_We...). As I've publicly shared in that report, there's no karma in staying poor. What really matters in this modern world when it comes to money is whether you can mindfully earn and redistribute wealth.
If you can do that with ethics, and with the respect for sustainable life on our planet, then you deserve to attract more wealth. The universe wants you to attract more financial resources when you're the right person to decide how to use it. And here I was, in the headquarters of the Moxxor company, being invited by the founders to participate in a potentially huge health-related financial opportunity being put right in my lap. It was also, I realized, something that could eventually replace our existing revenue source on NaturalNews, which is primarily Google.
I also realized that if I could encourage NaturalNews readers to be part of this launch, then I could replace the Google ads (which pay profits to Google) with Moxxor ads that ultimately distribute profits to NaturalNews team members who enroll with Moxxor.
Kind of a no brainer, huh? Let's see: By launching Moxxor on NaturalNews, we could stop sending profits to Google and redirect those profits to NaturalNews readers and NaturalNews health freedom operations... while at the same time eliminating those annoying Google ads that always appear for products we don't even support...
(Keep reading to see how YOU can benefit from the NaturalNews efforts on Moxxor. We have literally put a system in place where NaturalNews readers can receive significant financial benefits from being on the NaturalNews team. It's all explained below...)
When I thought about all the positive implications for NaturalNews, its readers, and the opportunity that had been placed right in front of my nose, for the first time in my life as a natural health journalist, I said YES. I would embrace this company, its products, and this opportunity, but only under certain conditions. They listened as I explained...
I would quit if they ever cheapened the product and filled it with junk. I would not stand for pollution of the environment during product processing, and I emphasized my desire that the gelatin capsules be switched over to plant-based capsules as soon as possible. (I know the cows in New Zealand are pure and all that, but I still wanted to see a commitment to shift towards plant-based capsules in the long term.)
Furthermore, I specifically asked that before the harvest of the green-lipped mussels, the aquaculture fields be blessed with positive intention, and thanks be given to the oceans and Mother Nature for providing such abundance. They not only agreed; Noel invited me to New Zealand to bless the aquaculture fields myself!
I'm flying there in November...
The NaturalNews Moxxor teamOver the last few weeks, I've been working behind the scenes to build the most successful health product direct sales team in the world. Hundreds of health-conscious, eco-conscious people have already joined the NaturalNews Moxxor team (including many N.D.s, M.D.s, chiropractors, herbalists, bodywork practitioners, and more), and we've accomplished a tremendous amount in a short time:
• A phenomenal team of hundreds of distributors in more than 28 states, 4 countries and covering 5 spoken languages. See our directory of our top distributors here: http://www.naturalnews.com/moxor-information...
• Weekly LIVE audio events every Tuesday evening (led by myself), plus an archive of each week's audio file that you can download as MP3.
• A high-end, impactful online presentation that can be personalized to each distributor so that the enrollment clicks go directly to them. See this presentation here: http://www.naturalnews.com/moxorDemoNN.asp (when you enroll with us, you'll receive a personalized page just for you)
• A series of audio marketing tools and interviews that each distributor can freely burn to audio CDs and hand out to others.
• A support team that can help answer questions and provide information to help NaturalNews team members reach success as quickly as possible.
... and there's more on the way. I'm not going to spill the beans on what else we're about to release for NaturalNews Moxxor team members, but I can confidently tell you this: In the history of network marketing, nobody has ever created the level of authenticity, positive purpose and replication technologies that we now have available for those who decide to join our team. We're combining purpose, products and technology in a way that's simply never been done before.
That's why the NaturalNews Moxxor team delivers a high-integrity product, a generous compensation plan and a pledge to create lasting good with the funds we generate. Everything we do is 100% aligned with our 7 Principles of Mindful Wealth, which describes a set of powerful principles for attracting and redistributing wealth in a mindful way that helps create a better world.

Although I don't have a crystal ball, I think Moxxor could be the next $1 billion health product network marketing company. I can't guarantee it, of course, but all my sense in the health products industry tells me this is going to be wildly successful. I've watched other companies succeed, and I can see that Moxxor has the key ingredients for real long-term success: Honest products, personal integrity and a generous compensation plan that encourages team building. In just the last 30 days, we've see explosive growth just from the early adopters who got on board through my Mindful Wealth email list. Some are already earning respectable incomes with Moxxor, and one woman I know just gave her two-week notice to her employer so she could focus full time on the NaturalNews Moxxor team!
Building a conscious team that stands for truth, health and protecting lifeI'm very conscious about the type of team we are building here. The NaturalNews team is right now attracting dedicated, health-conscious people who already live a holistic lifestyle. We want people who eat superfoods, who exercise and who are into protecting life on Earth and supporting good causes. We want people who will commit to a code of ethical principles surrounding money, and who will put their newfound wealth to an important application that helps solve the pressing problems in our world.
If this resonates with you, you'll enjoy being part of the NaturalNews Moxxor team. It's not only a phenomenal team filled with intelligent, high-vibration individuals; it's also a team populated with many successful business entrepreneurs who can help show you how to create a healthy income that pays you month after month, year after year.
