Dame Mary Peters is on track with super supplement
Whether you want to boost your performance on the sports pitch, at the gym or just feel energised, food supplement Lyprinol is now available at local pharmacy chain Medicare. The super strength supplement, which became available in Northern Ireland just four months ago, has proven to be a runaway success.
Lyprinol has been linked to improved quality of life of arthritis and asthma sufferers worldwide for many years and now local people are enjoying its benefits, too.
Olympic gold medal winner Dame Mary Peters helped launch the arrival of the new supplement which is now available from Medicare in Forestside Shopping Centre - and its 54 other outlets province-wide.
Dame Mary takes the entirely natural product at the age of 77.
She says she hasn't an ache which is just as well as she is currently campaigning for Mary's Race to a Million which aims to raise £1m over the next three years for her charity the Mary Peters Trust.
The charity works alongside Sports NI to support people from all sports.
"I take Lyprinol everyday. Because it's omega-3 and it's a lubricant, it's good for your joints," says Dame Mary.
Colm Murray, business development manager at Medicare Pharmacy Group, says: "We are delighted to add Lyprinol to our range of products and I can think of no one better to have at our launch than Dame Mary who stood for sporting excellence in her heyday and is still an inspiration to so many people."
The vital ingredient in the supplement is a natural, highly purified extract from the green-shelled mussel harvested in New Zealand. The extract is 100 times more potent than the fish oil EPA Max and contains a rare combination of lipid groups and unique omega-3 polyunsaturated fatty acids.
A study at Poland's Clinic of Rheumatology and Internal Medicine, Lyprinol was found to reduce pain in people with osteoarthritic by 89%, while 91% of the 50 adults tested reported improved quality of life.
