Going to the gym and leading an active lifestyle can be amazing, however one downside is the aches and pains that you get during and after your exercise. I am a firm believer of doing everything I can to prevent this and have looked at many ways to reduce DOMS (Delayed Onset Muscle Soreness).
With foam rolling, heat rubs, hot baths and even an attempt at an ice bath being up there on my list of ways to conquer this, I was very excited to hear about PERNATON®. Their products are made with the original Perna extract of the New Zealand green-lipped Mussel (perna canaliculus) which is a natural source of unique, nourishing and regenerative substances. Thanks to its high content of Glycosaminoglycans (GAG) important for the cartilage - it supplies the body with essential nutrients that give vital support, among other things, to joint function and muscles. This is exactly what I have been looking for and felt I had to share it with you!
The product itself is available in two different strength gels and also available in a roll-on format. All you need to do is rub them into aching muscles and joints. You can literally use it anywhere and it will allow you to be able to recover quicker and exercise for longer! A must have for your gym bag!
I was really pleased to find that the gel absorbs really quickly and doesn't leave a greasy feeling after massage - something that I hate about a lot of gels! After trying the full range, I am most certainly converted to PERNATON® and will no longer be using ibuprofen gels!
