NOW Cat's Claw 500MG 100Caps
NOW Cat's Claw
Used in herbal medicine to help relieve joint pain associated with osteoarthritis. Recent research is pointing to declines in immune function and increases in inflammatory-based response leading to or complicating many of today’s aging diseases such as arthritis, diabetes, cardiovascular disease, and metabolic syndrome. Cat’s Claw may provide support to both of these important systems.
Cat's claw (Una de Gato) is a woody vine native to the Amazon rainforest and other tropical areas of South and Central America. Its use dates back to the Incan civilization. The most common species used in commercial preparations is Uncaria tomentosa, which is rich in many actives such as alkaloids, tannins, glycosides, flavonoids and coumarins that all play a role in reducing inflammation or supporting immune function. Cat’s Claw has been shown in research to be beneficial for arthritic conditions for both osteo and rheumatic arthritis.
