Relaxing Bath Therapy
Pernaton is a natural source of unique nourishing and regenerative substances from the sea, manufactured in accordance to strict quality standards. It contains original Perna extract with essential high-molecular GAG (Glycosaminoglycans) , natural properties found in the connective tissues, ligaments and joint cartilage within the body. Pernaton also contains Omega 3 fatty acids, 11 different minerals and 18 vital L-amino acids. Perna extract is made from
using the patented freeze-drying process as is used to produce the New Zealand Green Lipped Mussel powder - thus ensuring quality and purity.
Perna extract can only be found in Pernaton. Published research findings have shown that Perna extract is gentle to the stomach and is neither toxic nor teratogenic.
Perna extract is produced using the trademarked process of the Green Lipped Mussel - thus guaranteeing the quality standard of Pernaton.
Where Are The Green Lipped
The mussels are grown in the clean coastal waters of New Zealand and even though the area already has a blue ocean environmental award, the ocean water, as well as the mussels are constantly monitored for safety - bacteria, toxins and heavy metals.
How Are They Farmed?
The New Zealand Green Lipped mussels are grown on long rope lines hanging vertically in the water, and are constantly checked and thinned out to ensure the perfect growing environment. They are then harvested at the peak of their condition and shipped immediately in refrigerated trucks to the manufacturing base, only a short distance from where they are grown, as freshness is essential to provide a high quality extract. On reaching the factory the mussels are put into a cold storage facility before being processed.
The process used to manufacture Perna extract originated over 30 years ago, and was specifically designed to create a therapeutic product. It is a unique cold extraction process which does not use heat, chemicals or solvents. The extract is then freeze dried to ensure quality and purity, before being milled to produce a fine powder extract. This process was developed over several years using tried and tested time and temperature parameters.
All The Same? Why Pernaton?
Many other Green Lipped Mussel products on the market today contain mussels that have been steamed/cooked or which have been ground down into a powder, using simple basic processes that destroy essential active ingredients. Some manufacturers even purchase the by-products from other producers or mussel farms which are definitely not fresh, and therefore have no therapeutic value.
Who Can Benefit From Pernaton?
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.
Perna Green Lipped Mussel extract is taken from a widely consumed seafood. Routine monitoring of the waters and mussels comply with US FDA Shellfish Standards. Every batch of Perna extract has been subjected to both toxicity and teratogenic studies to confirm its safety as a therapeutic product. The studies were conducted to the standard protocol used for pharmaceutical products.
