Name and Emblem
PURICA is the coming together of ‘Pure’ and ‘Care’. From its inception, our name was meant to reflect the natural purity and quality of our products and the comprehensive care we put into our formulations.
Our logo incorporates a modified triskelion, a Celtic symbol involving the interplay of three entities.
For us, this PURICA triskelion:
- Invokes our mantra that inspires everything we do: Mind and Body at Ease Free and Clear
- Represents vibrance, right here, right now, in body, mind and beyond;
- Symbolizes the three elements of wellness – ease, clarity and spontaneity.
The predominant colour blue symbolizes the pure experience of boundlessness, commonly associated with well-being and fulfillment.
We’re proud to put our name and the PURICA emblem on the finest whole foods, natural supplements and positive lifestyle solutions and to make the PURICA way an essential part of your life.

“Throughout the world, scientists, researchers, and physicians—both conventional and those who espouse more natural ways of healing—are recognizing that great health encompasses far more than how the physical body is functioning. In fact, research is showing us how every thought is capable of affecting gene expression, producing chemicals that are either good or bad for us and setting the stage for wellness or disease. It is the combination of a healthy body, mind and spirit that brings us truly alive. This is the philosophy that drives our company and is reflected in our name, mission, vision, logo and the PURICA Promise to you.”

PURICA Adrenal Support
What is adrenal exhaustion?
The adrenal glands
Although they form part of the HPA axis (a complex set of relationships and signals between the hypothalamus, the pituitary gland and the adrenals), the adrenal glands themselves are situated far away from the brain— just above the kidneys. (The word “adrenal” is Latin for near the kidneys.)
These important glands secrete aldosterone, which is integral to the proper functioning of the kidneys, but they also play an important role in many of the body’s systems.
When we are stressed, the hypothalamus sends a signal to the pituitary to “message” the adrenal glands, which instantly release stress hormones. The most significant of these are adrenaline and cortisol.
Balance. Strengthen. Restore.
Widely used in Ayurvedic medicine, Ashwagandha (Withania somnifera) helps reduce symptoms of stress such as sleeplessness, fatigue, irritability and inability to concentrate. Helps reduce cortisol and C-reactive protein — the biomarkers of physical stress and inflammation.
Sensoril® optimized Ashwagandha has been shown to reduce cortisol levels by over 24 percent, and to significantly increase DHEA levels. (DHEA helps restore the body to balance following a stress reaction.)
PURICA Lions Mane
Lion’s Mane promotes cognitive function
The Lion’s Mane mushroom gets its name due to its long cascading tendrils that resemble the mane of a lion. Legend has it that those who consumed lion’s mane mushroom would have “nerves of steel and the memory of a lion”.
