supporting joints for over 20 years.

With its original Perna extract, PERNATON® has been supporting the function of joints, ligaments and tendons for over 20 years. A naturally occurring substance, Perna is rich in essential nutrients and contains vital building blocks for cartilage and joint tissue.

Originally sourced natural extract.
Researchers have discovered that the Maori people are able to maintain outstanding levels of mobility and flexibility well into old age thanks to their mussel-rich diet – and the green-lipped mussel (Perna canaliculus) in particular. Native only to New Zealand, the green-lipped mussel is the source of

original Perna extract. Perna contains high levels of glycosaminoglycans (GAGs) and has a supporting function on the joints. The Perna extraction process is constantly monitored to ensure consistent quality.

PERNATON® provides vital support.
Original Perna extract has served as the basis for all PERNATON® products for over 20 years. Alongside its active glycogen complex, it provides the body with 11 types of minerals, long-chain Omega-3 fatty acids and 18 vital amino acids.

PERNATON® and mobility

Our joints

The condition of our joints is a critical factor for our general well-being. The more flexible our musculoskeletal system, the larger our radius of action and the more diverse activities we can undertake. However, physical labour, sport or abnormal attitudes subject our joints to stress, and in the worst case they may be damaged. In addition, age takes its toll on our joints. Protection and precaution are thus urgently recommended. But what are the main points to be considered?

Lubricating and protecting

Two of the elements that ensure that our joints remain flexible are articular cartilage and synovial fluid. The ends of the bones are covered by a layer of cartilage that serves as a buffer against shocks; the fluid ensures that the joints are lubricated.

Nutrients are important

For optimum functioning both elements must receive adequate nutrients.

Natural glycosaminglycans (GAG) contained in the original Perna extract PERNATON® serve this purpose.

Maintaining mobility

The synovial fluid is responsible for transporting nutrients to the cartilage. In addition to the supply of nutrients to the joint cartilage, the synovial fluid also lubricates the joints. The clear, viscous fluid ensures that the cartilage is not damaged by abrasion.

Sufficient fluid

Joints and movement are mutually dependent. Only movement provides for lively metabolic activity in the body. This is in turn critical for the joints, ensuring renewal of the cartilage and fluid. By the way: drinking sufficient amounts of liquid is essential for efficient metabolism.
