Afroganiks calls for more clinical trials on herbal-based drugs, partners LASUTH
*Unveils six homegrown herbal products
A manufacturing company in the production of herbal drugs, Afroganiks, has called for more research on drugs produced from herbs, while noting that, “Herbal products most of the time cause kidney problems and organ failure in the body because they are not well dosed.”
Worried by the situation, the herbal medicine manufacturer, explained that it will be partnering with the Lagos State University Teaching Hospital (LASUTH) to help carry out clinical trials of its products.
Co-founder of Afroganiks, Jeff Akaehie, who stated this at the company’s end-of-the-year partners and distributors retreat award held recently, disclosed the launching of its six new herbal products, named Afroganiks wellness tea, Prostagen, Afroganiks cleanser bitters, Greenolax capsules, Cynoyvit and Free-flow, adding that they are already available in the market for purchase.
He explained that all the products are certified by the National Agency for Food and Drug Administration and Control (NAFDAC), adding that, the “products are affordable with good quality due to the processes we undergo in researching our products.”
He said that all herbal products that come from the organisation are being prepared and developed by a team of doctors, pharmacists, lab scientists and microbiologists who work together to research herbs and come up with solutions as a product.
Akhaehie also revealed that the firm, despite challenges, has expanded its operations as it currently added the Gambia to the already operating six African countries like Nigeria, Liberia, Sierra Leone, Ghana, Togo and Cameroun, adding that plans are ongoing to penetrate South African markets.
The high point of the event was the award presentations to all partners and distributors of the firm who have remarkably contributed to its growth.
