The theory of six degrees of separation has been taken to a whole new level, with a latest study conducted by Indiana University, and published in the Journal of the International Society of Sports Nutrition, suggesting that mussels and muscles share a greater connection than previously known.

Apparently, taking the omega-3 PCSO-524, a pre-exercise supplement derived from the New Zealand green-lipped mussel, seems to have positive effects on sore muscles, particularly after a workout.

Available in the United States as Lyprinol, or Omega XL, this supplement has also been used to reduce the effects of osteoarthritis, rheumatoid arthritis, inflammatory bowel disease and exercise-induced asthma.

For those who were forced to give up on their fitness routines due to severe muscle trauma, can now resume their workouts since Lyprinol, or Omega XL can have a variety of positive effects on how the body reacts to muscle damage.

This supplement works well for triathletes as well, since they engage in several different types of strenuous exercises.

So, if recovery workouts and cool down sessions aren’t able to curb the soreness and damage to your tissues, you can take things a step further and talk to your physician about this new-found remedy.
