Everyone, from pregnant women (or any woman planning to have a baby!) to baby boomers can benefit from the anti-aging, disease-fighting and digestive health promoting benefits of green lipped mussels. Find out how to fight inflammation and feel your best.
I want to tell you about a truly amazing new product I have been taking and I hope you will consider trying too, but first some very important related health insights whether you choose to try it or not:
No matter where you look today, it’s clear that health conditions like cardiovascular disease, high blood pressure, digestive disease and arthritis are on the rise. One in seven Americans have some form of arthritis, one in three Americans have some form of cardiovascular disease and about one in four Americans have some form of digestive disease.
On top of this, memory problems and depression are on the rise as well, with 70% of older adults reporting memory problems and 21% of Americans experiencing depression. 4,5
With approximately 76 million Baby Boomers between the ages of 45 and 63, representing 29% of the population, we are in a time when it’s critical to find solutions, not just for living longer, but for living better.
And no matter what your age, if you want to feel your best, you know the key is to start now.
At Body Ecology, we know that the process of aging does NOT have to be one that includes fatigue, heart disease, diabetes, digestive problems, memory issues, depression or autoimmune disorders.
In fact, you can feel your best at any age, which is why we recommend that first and foremost, you heal your digestive system.
Your digestive health is imperative to feeling your best because it is how your body extracts key nutrients to keep you feeling healthy, strong and energized.
Interestingly, when health declines, it is your digestive system that tends to be the first to break down. Once your digestive system breaks down, the rest of your body begins to suffer. So improving your digestive health has benefits for your entire body!
Eating a healthy Body Ecology diet and taking high quality supplements is a great way to get your digestive system working its best, so you can feel your best.
As you know, my Body Ecology team and I are always searching the world over for the best foods, products and supplements to support your best health. From Japan and Thailand to Australia and Costa Rica, it has been our mission to investigate all corners of the planet to find natural ways to keep you feeling healthy, youthful and vital no matter what your age!
And now, from the pristine waters of the Marlborough Sounds region of New Zealand, comes a breakthrough in anti-aging and digestive health: Pernax.
Pernax is made from the highly prized Greenshell mussel, also known as the green-lipped mussel or Perna canaliculus; an edible mollusk that New Zealand natives, the Maori, have thrived on for over 700 years.
Because of the unique natural properties of the ozone layer in the Marlborough Sound region, the Greenshell Mussels and other life forms have had to adapt to intense UV rays, giving them an unparalleled combination of lipid groups and unique Omega-3 polyunsaturated fatty acids 6
Pernax is a special formulation of Greenshell Mussel Oil and Evening Primrose Oil that is free of free of artificial ingredients, milk, yeast, corn, gluten and nuts.
And since all mussel fishing and product manufacturing is controlled by the New Zealand the Ministry of Agriculture and Fisheries (MAF), you can be sure Pernax meets the highest of quality standards.
What makes Pernax so special as an anti-aging and digestive health aid?
Pernax has powerful anti-inflammatory properties. And inflammation is at the root of all diseases and triggers early aging.
In fact, inflammation is the common link between such debilitating conditions as Alzheimers, heart disease, cancer, and arthritis. It is thought to be the real culprit behind aging.
The way to decrease inflammation is to eat a healthy Body Ecology diet, get plenty of sleep and consume a balance of omega-3 and omega 6 essential fatty acids. Unfortunately too many Americans are eating more omega-6 fatty acids than the much needed omega-3 fatty acids.
Supplementing your diet with omega-3 fatty acids is essential for good health, but all omega-3 sources are not the same!
Omega-3 fatty acids can be divided into 3 main types:
You can find EPA and DHA in oily fish and fish oil supplements while flaxseeds and flaxseed oil are the best sources of ALA.
EPA and DHA from fish oil are better sources of omega-3 essential fatty acids than the ALA in flaxseed oil. ALA is a “precursor” to omega-3; your body takes the ALA and then must turn it into more useable EPA and DHA that is already available in fish oil. In other words, there is no further conversion needed with fish oil...it is already there.
But Pernax goes WAY beyond fish oil as the best source of omega-3 essential fatty acids because of the unique lipid profile of green-lipped mussels!
In fact, studies have found that the green-lipped mussels found in Pernax have significant anti-inflammatory activity and can benefit patients with asthma, osteoarthritis, rheumatoid arthritis, asthma, and other inflammatory conditions.7,8,9
The key to Pernax’s superstar anti-inflammatory power is a lipid-rich extract found in the green-lipped mussel.
According to a study at the University of California, this extract was noted as a “reproducible, stable source of bioactive lipids with much greater potency than plant/marine oils currently used as nutritional supplements to ameliorate signs of inflammation.”10
Fight Aging and Disease with Pernax!
According to the American Heart Association, one in three adults has cardiovascular disease and high blood pressure.19
“An estimated 46 million adults in the United States reported being told by a doctor that they have some form of arthritis, rheumatoid arthritis, gout, lupus, or fibromyalgia.” 20
Digestive diseases, like Chron’s disease, irritable bowel syndrome (IBS), ulcerative colitis, constipation and peptic ulcers affect more than 70 million Americans. 21
The omega-3 fatty acids and extract in Pernax have been found to benefit: 11
Pernax may be your best anti-aging and disease fighting bet – but there’s more! Pregnant women and those who someday intend to get pregnant can also benefit from Pernax.
Benefits for Pregnant Women (or Any Woman Planning to be Pregnant!)
Research has found that mothers who have a diet rich in omega-3 fatty acids pass on the benefits to their babies. Studies showed that at childbirth, moms who have higher blood levels of DHA gave birth to babies with better attention spans well into the baby’s second year of life. 17
But the benefits of omega-3 fatty acids for babies don’t stop there! A study by the Leipzig Allergy Risk Children’s Study Group which analyzed the fats in the colostrum from mothers of children at high risk for allergies, found that lower omega 3’s led to more allergies. 18
Are You Ready to Feel Your Best?
You deserve to feel your best every day! Remember the basics, like Body Ecology nutrition, plenty of sleep and exercise – and for that leg up on good health, add Pernax to your daily routine.
Now staying youthful and fighting disease is simple, with Pernax. The recommended dosage is: 3 capsules per day for 2-4 weeks, then take 1 to 2 capsules per day with food, or as directed by your Doctor or Pharmacist.
