Shallaki is an herbal drug that is used for many different applications related to muscle and joint pain relief and treatment of related conditions.
The active ingredient found in Shallaki is called Boswellic Acid. It stops joints from inflaming and thereby causing pain.
Shallaki is very useful because it can actively prevent the joints from wearing out too fast due to constant use.
Common causes of this include constant wear and tear due to the overuse of certain joints. This is very noticeable in athletes and people engaging in heavy activity such as construction.
This medicine works by stopping the death of glycosaminoglycan, which is a critical building block of cartilage within the joints. This cartilage is responsible for shock absorption and the smooth functioning of the joints through effective lubrication.
It can also reduce pain by destroying the production rate of certain enzymes in the body. These enzymes are responsible for the release of excess chemicals in the joints that promote inflammation.
Because of its functioning methods, Shallaki can loosely classified as an NSAID, or a Non-Steroidal Anti-Inflammatory Drug. However, it is a very mild drug, and doesn’t lead to the formation of ulcers or other abdominal discomfort when used in the long term.
The ingredients in Shallaki primarily help in the treatment of muscle and joint pain caused by arthritis or osteoarthritis, and work to suppress inflammation. It is also used in the treatment of backaches and muscle pain as well as post-menopausal joint pains.
Shallaki is a completely vegetarian, 100% naturally occurring medication. It is therefore free of artificial flavouring and colouring, and does not contain any preservatives.
This medication is also free of any sugar content and does not contain any gelatin. All it contains is the extract of the resin of ole-gum (125mg).
