PLX® is an aqueous extract of lemon verbena for sport recovery.
PLX® is an aqueous extract of the leaves of lemon verbena, Aloysia citriodora Palau, titrated in phenylpropanoids, like verbascosides, with powerful antioxidant effects. It was developed by the Spanish company Monteloeder.
Additionally, it contains flavonoids (like luteolin), a category of polyphenols known for their antioxidant properties.
Two preclinical and 6 clinical studies showed PLX® beneficial effects on athletes reducing inflammation, oxidative stress and thus muscle damage and joint mobility and pain. Moreover, it improves sleep duration and mood.
