Reclaiming limber lives
There are many herbs and plants that have therapeutic properties for reducing pain caused by inflammation – ranging from mild to highly potent efficacy. In some cases, it is relatively simple to extract and purify the active essence of the plant. In others, however, this process is difficult and costly. The higher the strength and potency, the more expensive the active element.
Haraka has been developed specifically for relief from pain caused by arthritic inflammation. Several factors were taken into consideration in its creation: Most of those afflicted with arthritis are likely over 60; many are already taking chronic medication for blood pressure regulation, diabetic conditions, cholesterol control, thyroid regulation, etc.; there is a high likelihood that many are either on scripted medication for blood thinning, or an OTC blood-thinning medication (e.g., baby aspirin); affordability in addition to efficacy.
The potency of Haraka’s anti-inflammatory, analgesic properties was intricately balanced with the risk factors when interacting with the above-mentioned medications.
These factors were all considered with thorough research and testing, resulting in the Haraka formulation.
Haraka delivers efficacy, potency, safety and affordability
Active ingredients in Haraka
Also known as Indian frankincense – from the Serrata tree.
Research has shown that boswellic acid can prevent the formation of leukotrienes (molecules triggering the production of prostaglandins); is effective in treating arthritic pain and inflammation; increases flexibility and reduces the levels of a cartilage-reducing enzyme; retards the loss of cartilage and bone. Boswelia has immune-balancing properties which are effective as antioxidants in combatting free radicals. Studies have also shown a reduction in the swelling of joints (rheumatoid arthritis and osteoarthritis) and an interference in the autoimmune process (rheumatoid arthritis).
Harpagophytum procumbens – known as the “hook plant” in Greek.
Although some North American plant species are referred to as a “devil’s claw”, it is only Harpagophytum procumbens, native to Namibia, that is believed to have medicinal properties. Used for centuries by the Koi San people to treat pain, arthritis, indigestion and skin conditions. The active compound harpagoside in Devil’s Claw has powerful anti-inflammatory and analgesic (pain-relieving) properties. It is used to treat rheumatic conditions affecting the joints, ligaments, tendons, bones, and muscles. These include back pain, osteoarthritis, rheumatoid arthritis, and tendinitis. There is also strong belief that it is effective in the treatment of fibromyalgia, sciatica, nerve pain, gout, and some symptoms of Lyme disease.
A trace mineral found in leafy green vegetables, non-citrus fruits, grains, raisins, coffee.
Boron: Is essential for the growth and maintenance of bone; greatly improves wound healing; beneficially impacts the body’s use of oestrogen, testosterone, and vitamin D; boosts magnesium absorption; reduces levels of inflammatory biomarkers; raises levels of antioxidant enzymes; improves the brain’s electrical activity, cognitive performance, hand-eye co-ordination, and short-term memory. Low levels of boron are correlated with higher levels of rheumatoid factor – the antibody that causes destruction of the joints in RA and OA.
What to expect from Haraka
Nothing for a week or so, then intermittent days of total comfort followed by a day or two of the usual state, gradually the good days will outnumber the not-so-good days
Absolutely no improvement for a couple of weeks, then an almost “overnight” decrease in pain, increase in flexibility and comfort. which is sustained.
Very gradual improvement from the first week which is hardly noticeable, with no reverting to the former state. Only after a period of 6 – 8 weeks will the comparison be remarkable
