CAT’S CLAW/UNA DE GATO (Uncaria tomentosa): This woody vine indigenous to the Amazon rainforest, is named for its hook like thorns. The inner bark has many medicinal applications and has been used in South America since the time of the Incas. Scientific evidence suggests that Cat’s Claw has anti-inflammatory properties, working on inflammation of the gut, but also other forms of inflammation like arthritis. It was found to enhance the immune response of those who are HIV positive. Studies have shown that Cat’s Claw has anti-mutagenic properties, and inhibits the proliferation of tumor cells through apoptosis, accelerating the death of tumor cells. Another exciting finding is Cat’s Claw’s ability to facilitate DNA repair, helping to regulate aging and cellular degeneration. Since this herb is best absorbed when combined with a vitamin C source, we have included Rosehips in this extract. Contains: Dry certified organic Cat’s Claw, inner bark, dry certified organic Rosehip fruit, certified organic cane alcohol, distilled water and pure vegetable glycerin. Caution: Not for those taking immunosuppressant drugs. Discontinue Cat’s Claw before surgery. Do not take if your kidneys are not fully functioning.
