- Bioactive blind studies conducted in 2012 in an independent laboratory concluded an anti-inflammatory COX2 & Caspase 3 marker profile averaging greater than 95% effective.
- “Conclusion: In all experimental models used in this study, AKS – Aqueous stem bark extract of Khaya Senegalensis exhibited significant anti-inflammatory and antinociceptive (pain relief) properties which compare favourably well with the effects produced by the standard drugs used. These findings provide scientific basis to justify the traditional use of the plant in inflammatory diseases. The study showed that Khaya senegalensis is a medicinal plant with good potential for the development of new anti-inflammatory drugs. “; Kolawole OT, Akiibinu MO, Ayankunle AA and Awe EO., 2013.

These side effects are rare and thought to be indicative of the general de-tox properties of Khaproid® ingredients. As in any de-tox preparation, additional fresh water should always be consumed.
