Identify of Cat’s claw
Cat’s claw, also known as Uno de Gato csp, is a high-climbing, woody vine that grows profusely in the upper Amazon regions of Peru, Columbia, Ecuador, and other South American countries. At the base of the plant’s leaves are two curved thorns that resemble the claws of a cat; these allow the vine to climb up trees and other vegetation into the forest canopy. The herb’s botanical name, Uncaria, is from the Latin uncus, for “hook.”

Benefit of Cat’s claw extract:
Cat’s claw alkaloids have been specifically associated with enhancing immune system cell function, including phagocytosis and macrophage activity. Cardiovascular support properties include support for healthy cascular and platelet function. Preliminary evidence suggests that cat’s claw may provide protective support for healthy breast cell function. Cat’s claw may be contraindicated for individuals who are taking blood thinning or antihypertensice medications due to a potential synergistic effect.
