Natural extract from the coastal waters of New Zealand – the original Perna extract of the New Zealand Green Lipped Mussel (perna canaliculus) is a natural source of unique, nourishing and regenerative substances.

It serves as a basis for the manufacture of valuable PERNATON® products and – 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. In addition, original Perna extract has a functional Glycogen complex, long-chain omega-3 fatty acids, 11 different minerals and 18 vital amino acids.

Only products with the original Perna extract label on the packaging contain original Perna extract.

Pernaton® has 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.

Conventional Green Lipped Mussel powder on the market today contain mussels that have been steamed/cooked or which have been ground down into a powder, using basic processes that destroy essential active ingredients. Some even purchase the by-products from other produces or mussel farms which are definitely not fresh.
