It is ideal for sports people as Pernaton has been found to improve muscle and training recovery actions and is currently being widely used by professional sports people, especially footballers. A study (double blind placebo) found that Perna Green Lipped Mussel extract speeded up recovery. Tired leg muscles were exposed to a series of drop jumps to induce muscle damage and it was found that peak muscle power was restored quicker and to a greater extent in the Perna group.
Perna, the unique extract used in all of the Pernaton products has anti-inflammatory, chondro-protective and gastro-protective properties. It has had significant success in treating a number of joint and muscle related problems, not only in humans but in animals too. Research has shown it has a greater range of beneficial effects than either Glucosamine Sulphate or Chondroitin Sulphate.
