Pernaton Pernaval – for horses
Pernaval is a modern supplementary foodstuff for horses which contains 30% Perna extract, produced from the New Zealand Green Lipped Mussel (Perna Canaliculus). It is a purely natural product which possesses maximum bioavailability thanks to its special manufacturing procedure.
Perna extract contains a particularly large amount of Glycosaminoglycans (GAG’s) which stabilises and regenerates the connective tissue structures of the locomotorium, that is the joint cartilage, ligaments, tendons, discs and synovial fluid.
Pernaval is a horse supplement containing Perna extract concentrate, which has been sold in Switzerland and some other European countries for a number of years. Wellbeing were already aware that horses had shown significant improvement with Pernaval through research already carried out in Europe* and decided to trial the product here with horse owners, equine vets, physiotherapists and chiropractors as well as professional riders and trainers. It has now been trialled for more than 6 months in the UK with very positive results. If you are a horse owner, look out for this product and read the reviews by the people who have already used it.
"I have been very pleased with the response that I have received from owners who I have recently advised should try Pernaval for their horses. In the majority of cases the amount of NSAID medication that was being administered previously for pain relief has been significantly decreased since the introduction of Pernaval into the diet."

* A double blind placebo study was carried out at the Animal Science faculty in the Ludwig-Maximillians University, Munich in 2001. It involved 30 horses all showing symptoms of chronic degenerative joint disease who were trialled for 6 months. The control group received a feed supplement (Pernaval) which contained 6g of Perna Green Lipped Mussel extract per day. Results of the treatment were evaluated within the parameters of clinical lameness and X-ray examinations. All the horses made significant improvements – 47% showed no more signs of lameness – 23% had clinically improved – 30% showed improvement in movement.
Pernaval has been tested and passed as safe to use by HFL’s Sports Nutritional Supplement Screen for banned substances.
