CAT’S CLAW – POWDER – UNCARIA TOMENTOSA
Cat’s Claw is a tropical vine that grows in rainforest and jungle areas in South America and Asia. Some cultures refer to the plant as the “Sacred Herb of the Rain Forest”. Natives of the Peruvian jungle, especially the Ashaninka tribe, have used cat’s claw for hundreds of years as a medicine. It did not come to the attention of researchers until the 1970s.
This vine gets its name from the small thorns at the base of the leaves, which looks like a cat’s claw. These enable the vine to attach itself around trees climbing to a heights up to 100 feet.
The plant is considered a valuable medicinal resource and is protected in Peru. Although scientific research has just recently begun to explore its benefits, many cultures native to the South American rain forest areas have used this herb for hundreds of years.
Current studies show it may have positive effects on, and can boost the body’s immune system.
The active substances are alkaloids, tannins and several other phytochemicals. Some of the alkaloids have been proven to boost the immune system. The major alkaloid rhynchophylline has anti-hypertensive effects and may reduce the risk of stroke and heart attack by lowering blood pressure, increasing circulation, reducing heart rate and controlling cholesterol.
Other constituents contribute anti-inflammatory, antioxidant and anticancer properties. Many treatments combine the herb with different plants and natural products to increase the absorption and bioavailability.
It has long been used as a homeopathic treatment for intestinal ailments. Uses include: Crohn’s disease, gastric ulcers and tumors, parasites, colitis, gastritis, diverticulitis and leaky bowel syndrome. By stimulating the immune system, it can also improve response to viral and respiratory infections.
European clinical studies have used the extract from the bark in combination with AZT in the treatment of AIDS. It is also used in the treatment and prevention of arthritis and rheumatism, as well as diabetes, PMS, chronic fatigue syndrome, lupus, and prostate conditions.
Common Use: Extracts are used in treatments for a variety of conditions, mostly gastrointestinal. Immuno-stimulant properties help the body fight off infections and protect against degenerative diseases.

This is a herb that deserves it’s almost legendary status. Used for hundreds of years in the tropical rain forests of Ecuador and Peru, as well as some of the other mountainous South American countries’ indigenous peoples, this herb has recently come into widespread use throughout the world.
The original scientifically-oriented work on possible medicinal applications was done by an Austrian scientist, Dr. Klauss Keplinger, and he has obtained at least two U.S. patents for isolating some of the major components of the herb. By reading the results of exhaustive studies in several countries, an impressive list of possible benefits has been documented which have been achieved by different people throughout the world who’ve been using this herb.
Main medicinal effects:
The main effects of this herb seem to be to detoxify and cleanse the digestive tract, and to stimulate underlying immune-system functions. There are many other reported actions which are attributed to this herb, such as anti-inflammatory actions, anti-viral actions, an ability to help lower blood pressure, an increased prevention of blood clotting, help in detoxifying environmental poisoning, as well as helping to correct chronic immune-system dysfunctions, such as lupus, chronic fatigue syndrome, and all forms of herpes. It has been used in conjunction with allopathic pharmaceutical preparations such as AZT, for fighting the AIDS virus (most likely because of it’s support in building immune system functions), and cancers associated with the later stages of aids, with encouraging results.
Some of the digestive functions with which have seen beneficial results are: diverticulitis, ulcers, gastritis. Some tumors of the bowels and colon were kept from spreading. Positive results have also been achieved by individuals using this herb for such illnesses as: diabetes, prostatitis, and various forms of cancer.
As can be seen by the varied and amazing results, this is truly a wonderful, world-class herb, which has helped numerous people, giving wonderful results (especially when combined with positive dietary and lifestyle changes).
This herb can be taken safely without worry about toxicity. It may, therefore, be consumed in fairly large quantities safely. Even though this is the case, there is certainly a window of thereputic value, beyond which increased effects may not be realized. Here are the generally useful parameters: 3 to 6 grams / day, or four very strong cups of tea taken intermittently through the day. When preparing the tea, since the part of the plant used is the bark, a strong decoction seems to be the most beneficial method of preparation.
