Cat’s Claw (Uncaria tomentosa) is a woody vine found in the tropical rain forests of South America. The name derives from the small curved-back spines on the stem at the leaf juncture which resemble the claws of a cat. The bark of the vine is rich in antioxidants and was traditionally brewed into a tea. The high antioxidant activity of Cat’s Claw, coming from a wide variety of phytochemicals, makes it a powerful supplement to support the immune system. In addition, it promotes an anti-inflammatory response and specifically decreases inflammation in the bones and joints.
Research has shown Cat’s Claw to support bone marrow when deficient, promote cardiovascular health, and detoxify the colon. C-MED-100, an extract of Cat’s Claw, has been proven to boost DNA repair of skin damaged by UV sun rays. Enhanced DNA repair can result in immune stimulation and anti-inflammation.
