Categories: Immune System, Digestive System, Structural System
Uña de Gato (cat’s claw) (Immune) is well-known in South America and is rapidly gaining popularity in the U.S. as a remarkable tonic herb. Many have experienced such wonderful results that uña de gato (Uncaria tomentosa) is now considered equal, if not superior, to the world’s foremost immune-fortifying herbs: echinacea, golden seal, pau d'arco, garlic and Siberian ginseng. >It has also been compared favorably with shark cartilage and caprylic acid. It is particularly beneficial to the immune, digestive and structural systems.
A vine that grows in the highland rainforests of Peru, uña de gato may take more than two decades to mature. It is known to climb trees more than 100 feet tall. It also grows thorns resembling the claws of a cat (hence its name). In order to protect this highly valued herb, the Peruvian government restricts harvesting of the root. Only the inner bark is harvested, leaving the root untouched and able to regenerate for many years to come. The inner bark provides all the beneficial alkaloide found in uña de gato.
Uña de gato came to the attention of scientist Klaus Keplinger in 1974 during a conversation he had with an Ashaninka indian from Peru. The Ashaninkas have long regarded uña de gato tea as a sacred herbal panacea. Since that time, several countries around the world have investigated its extraordinary benefits.
