Super Harpagophytum is an extract of Harpagophytum highly standardised in harpagosides, producing optimal effects for relieving joint and back pain, with antioxidant and anti-inflammatory benefits.
The specific way in which Super Harpagophytum is collected differs from normal harvesting methods. It is a highly delicate technique carried out by Bushmen from the Khwe community which protects the main root of the plant from damage, enabling it to regenerate. Khwe Harpagophytum is therefore the product of established and sustainable cultivation.
The effect of Harpagophytum is progressive and it is, therefore, advisable to take four capsules a day, two in the morning and two in the evening, for a minimum of three months. The effect will endure as long as Harpagophytum supplementation continues. Long-term supplementation with Super Harpagophytum is well-tolerated by the body, producing neither side-effects nor dependency. Only pregnant women, nursing mothers or those taking anticoagulants should avoid this plant since, at high doses, it could increase the effect of anticoagulant drugs.
Non-steroidal anti-inflammatories are widely used to relieve chronic inflammation and crippling pain such as in the back or knees, but they do have long-term side-effects. Herbal substances can offer a healthy alternative to these drugs, the most effective option being Harpagophytum procumbens. However, for maximum efficacy scientifically supported active substances must be taken at high enough doses and the extract must be obtained via a specific extraction process in order to guarantee optimal purity.
Also known as Devil's Claw, is a plant found in the desert regions of South Africa where it flowers for just one day of the year. Its efficacy comes from its active principles – harpagosides. Taking 1000 mg/day of this extract provides 200 mg of total harpagosides, which is well above the usually available, but in line with levels used in clinical studies. For acute lower back or chronic arthritis pain, it should be taken at this dose until significant improvements are seen. It can also be combined with other supplements available to buy at Supersmart, such as Super Gingerols, Infla Relief Formula or Super Curcuma in order to optimise its effects.
