We did not begin this journey with the intent of making a business or even making money, but after three and a half years of research and development, Yurika became a reality worth sharing.
Like many women, I suffered from extreme menstrual cramps from my early teens. I was unable to cope with the pain without taking up to eight Ibuprofen or other NSAIDs. This would still only reduce the symptoms, which also included: nausea, diarrhea and leg cramps.
In the summer of 2015, I met my future husband and business partner and he told me about the side effects of NSAIDs so we began researching natural alternatives.
Subsequently, I began shifting my eating habits towards foods that can help prevent cramps. We also tried herbal tea blends that had anecdotal evidence.
After 11 months, Eureka! ...I had my first pain free period. Upon further research, we refined our ingredients down to a highly concentrated and synergistic botanical compound in a capsule.
After a three and a half year journey, we obtained clinical trials, two Health Canada certifications, international trademark registration and an intellectual property patent.
On April 9, 2019 Yurika hit the market and the response surpassed our expectations, with women reporting the complete elimination of their pain and all other symptoms!
There were many key individuals who helped us along the way. Ultimately, our experience leads us to believe God gave us the inspiration, guidance and synchronicity to create Yurika! - the first and only botanical solution for menstrual cramps.
