"I am 39 years old, and was a very active sportsman, involved in lots of activities with my main passions being rugby and kickboxing. Four years ago I noticed that I was getting very sore knees after very little activity and this concerned me, as I prided myself on my fitness levels, and I was no longer able to do what I loved doing. Even more concerning than that is the fact that I need to pass a bi-annual fitness test for my job, and being unable to do that leaves my employment in jeopardy. At my wits' end I sought medical advice and was seen by doctors, surgeons, and physiotherapists. Long story short, I had MRI scans on my knee which showed several issues, including very little, if any cartilage. I ended up having surgery and began the road to recovery. It didn't work. Still couldn't run, and was having all sorts of pain and no strength. I heard the radio ads testifying as to the benefits of the Puraz PRO-d and thought that I had nothing to lose and so decided to try it. I used it for nearly a year, then stopped. I recently went for another MRI and to the absolute astonishment of the surgeon, the cartilage has regenerated substantially! He said that he had seen thousands of knees with the same level of cartilage loss as mine, but he had never seen it grow back. In his professional opinion, that "just doesn't happen." I am pleased to say that last week I went for my first road run in years. And my lungs gave out before my knees did. To say that I'm happy is an understatement. I have a newborn son - 2 weeks old - so being able to take him for a run in his pushchair is fantastic! Once my bank account has got over the shock of buying new baby stuff, I will definitely be back on PRO-d. I have been telling everyone that if they are having knee problems, they NEED to give PRO-d a shot. They have nothing to lose and everything to gain..."

Capsaicin is derived from the seeds and membranes of chillies and capsicum. It is the chemical that makes chillies hot, and when applied as a topical cream can be used to soothe muscles and joint stiffness.
Regular application will result in a continued soothing effect for your muscles, tissues and joints, helping to restore comfort and wellbeing.
Capsaicin's warming effect also supports an increase in muscle temperature and circulation, permitting better movement, especially in cold conditions.
Numerous clinical studies show capsaicin is very effective at providing relief from stiffness. It supports joint and muscle comfort.
Capsaicin is a potent natural ingredient that supports joint mobility and muscle flexibility.
Arnica is derived from the Arnica montana plant. It's a relative of the sunflower plant, producing similar large yellow flowers. Arnica has been used since the 1500s in herbal medicine for it's support for healing and recovery and it's antibacterial properties. It is the most commonly used herb in natural medicine for the treatment of trauma.
The fresh or dried flower heads are now commonly used all over the world in creams to soothe tired and stiff muscles and heal wounds and bruises.
Arnica works by supporting circulation to the affected area, boosting the body's self-healing mechanism.
In a normal injury situation, when you receive a bump, the blood capillaries break, allowing blood cells to leak out. Those blood cells eventually die and turn black and blue (shown by bruising), and the body goes into action, sending white blood cells to the area to clean up. The white blood cells help to absorb congested blood, dead tissue and other injury-induced by-products that hamper the healing process. By supporting circulation and white blood cell activity, arnica makes the whole healing process swifter and more effective.
Arnica supports the body's response to soft tissue damage, and it also helps to soothe joint and muscle stiffness, bruising and the normal healing process. It can be used to support creaky joints as well as joint mobility and flexibility.
Ginger is one of the most common herbs used in food worldwide and possesses antioxidant, antiseptic, warming and carminative properties. It has a long history of medicinal use, primarily for soothing nausea and easing stomach upset and dizziness. Lauded for it's healing properties in China, India and the Middle East, ginger is increasingly becoming acknowedged in Western circles for it's value in soothing and relaxing tired, stiff muscles and joints when applied topically.
When applied to the skin, ginger supports blood circulation to the area, providing soothing warmth. The root of the ginger plant contains powerful compounds that can help reduce stiffness and support comfort for stressed muscles and creaky joints. These compounds also act as antioxidants and vigorous inhibitors of the damaging effect of free radicals which can contribute to joint stiffness and mobility issues.
These protection mechanisms against joint stiffness, muscle tension and oxidative damage make ginger an all-powerful natural agent in fighting the ravages of time.
Other active ingredients
Inflamox also contains St John's wort oil to support muscle and nerve comfort, plus peppermint oil and menthol to provide a warming, stress-relieving action.

TAPS Approval PP4871
"For your interest I have just found 2 separate notes I made last year regarding PRO-d. "First dose: 27th October 2011. Third finger right hand joint swollen/can't bend it properly. Third finger left hand bent sore joint. Right foot/toe joints, big toe very painful. Left foot not too bad. Stiff in legs when sitting for more than 20 minutes/sitting in car." "Much improved by 14th December (7 weeks) with more flexibility, stiffness gone, joint improvement, lots more energy and much easier to complete the half hour hilly walk around the block near our house.” As of today it is now 17 weeks since I began first taking PRO-d and I have to say that I have none of the stiffness that was really annoying me. I noticed I had started to avoid a car journey of an hour or more! I am straight out of bed in the mornings these days, much more flexible, no problem touching toes etc. There will always be the odd ache or pain on account of age as I am 61 now. We have a 2 storey house and I like to run up and down the stairs to get a bit of extra exercise when going from each floor. I am of the opinion that PRO-d has helped me a lot..."
"While in my job as a fire fighter in central Auckland – busiest fire station in New Zealand, I found that because a lot of our work involved stair climbing, carrying weights on your back I was having problems with hips and knees. Since I’ve started taking the product, this problem has reduced significantly and I find that it’s a lot easier for me to do what I have to do now than it was before."
"How has my joint health improved? It's improved gradually. I've been taking the product now for 6 months. I now no longer need to take any medication at all for joint health and it's gone, the problem's gone."
"My joints in my knees and knuckles were quite achy and stiff but after a couple of months I noticed they were a lot more flexible and the achiness decreased as time went on. PRO-d was easy to prepare and consume. I will definitely be recommending PRO-d to my friends and family."
"PRO-d’s certainly made a big difference I believe. I can advocate that whole heartedly that the changes that I’ve seen in a short period of time have uh you know I feel like I’m a teenager again with regard to what my knees are capable of doing so its gotta be good for the future. I recommend the PRO-d product based on results. That’s it really, if I didn’t feel as good as I feel right now I probably wouldn’t be able to give you the answers. I’m sure you want the truth, but that’s how I certainly feel, 100% - it’s made a 1000% difference to my life so being able to play rugby with my boy in 15 years time seems a reality right now."
"I have tried everything that has been suggested to me before Puraz PRO-d. I tried the deer velvet, I’ve tried glucosamine and chondroitin, I’ve tried green lipped mussels. I’ve tried fish oil. I’ve tried everything that remotely mentions joint health and Puraz PRO-d has been the only one that has made an impressionable difference. I would absolutely recommend Puraz PRO-d to other people. The results I’ve had have been quite astounding. I didn’t expect to have such good results at all. Half of what I’ve actually had would have been fine but its made my life worth living again and I’m looking forward to the future. It’s absolutely worth giving it a go. It’s absolutely worth giving it a good try and sticking with it. If anybody is even thinking of it I would say try it, go for it."
"I was quite sore in the groin area (partly to do with my hips, as this problem runs in the family) and was having to lift one leg over the other with my hands if I wanted to cross them. My hip pain has also eased along with my lower back pain, but I have no groin pain anymore. Have recommended PRO-d to my friends and family. It takes no time to prepare, and I really like the taste."
"Before taking PRO-d walking across the road was like walking on steel rods. Every movement was like a jarring effect - since taking PRO-d the cushioning in my knees is vastly improved and feel very comfortable walking anywhere nowadays."
" My back stiffness has improved. Remarkable; my knee joint is not clicking any more. Very easy to mix and take. Lovely taste."
"My mobility has definitely improved in my right hip (I suffer from Osteoarthritis), but the biggest gain is in the reduction of pain at times. Sometimes I'm nearly pain free. PRO-d has improved my wellbeing and I will not hesitate to recommend it to others!"
"My hip and knee joints were aching constantly and since taking PRO-d my knees have stopped aching and my right hip only aches if I am in the same position too long. It's also easy to prepare."
"sleeping a lot better. It's easier to get out of chairs. General movement seems easier."
"I have had less pain in both knees since taking PRO-d."
"Sudden pain in my right hip would stop me in my tracks, but it is not happening so frequently now."
"Because of the type of my job, I feel stress on my ankles and knees from time to time. After I started taking PRO-d, I noticed less intense stress and much faster recovery on these two joints."
"My thumbs and knee joints have been good especially knee joints when driving. They do not ache."
"I don’t seem to have any or little pain in my knees now."
"I had pain in both my knees, and tennis elbow. No pain in the knees now. Slight pain in elbow."
"A definite improvement, but it did take time. Improvement in knee and hip joints.Slight improvement in lower back."
"I find I do not have to wear my stretch fabric garment over my left knee as much as I had to before. I've found I'm not so sore in regards to lower back pain, tendons in feet and muscular pain. I seem to be able to bounce back a lot quicker."
"The pain in my big toe has improved to where I walk around some days and not even think about it. My left hip used to be stiff in the morning when I got up and would take a bit of time to loosen up and now most mornings I get up and hardly feel it."
"PRO-d has been instrumental in the improvement in my condition and I will recommend it to anyone experiencing joint pain or mobility issues."
"PRO-d has been very effective in reducing pain in my neck and upper body. I have noticed quite an improvement in my hip pain especially my left hip. My neck turning range has increased so I have greater turning ability with no pain."
"I have suffered from joint pain for a number of years. It’s been a constant companion for about 7 years now. My pain has been aggravated by any sort of impact, be it running or jumping. This has been a great experience; keeping the pain away and being able to run again. Waking up without pain is the best way to start each day. Thank you! I fractured L4 and L5 as well as my pelvis and ankle over 10 years ago. All of these areas have had a marked improvement in joint pain since taking PRO-d."
