CAT'S CLAW TINCTURE
Cat's claw (Uncaria tomentosa,) is a woody vine native to tropical climates in Central and South America. It has been used for thousands of years in indigenous healing traditions, typically through extractions, infusions, or decoctions.
Cat's claw has been used to boost the immune system, as an antiviral, antibacterial, and antioxidant agent.
It has also been used to treat and prevent infection, gastrointestinal disorders, herpes, allergies, hemorrhoids, rheumatoid arthritis, chronic fatigue syndrome, urinary tract cancer, glioblastoma, gonorrhea, and dysentery.
It is known to contain quinic acid esters, indole alkaloids, alkaloids, triterpenes, tannins, catechins, procyanidins glycosides, flavonoids, plant sterols, and coumarins.
Cat's claw is known to have anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties, although its alkaloid content does not influence the effects.
It should not be used with medication intended to suppress the immune system, while pregnant or breastfeeding, with Glipizide®, or with hormones.
Recommended dosage: 1-3ml taken 2-3x daily in a small glass of water or juice on an empty stomach for better absorption.
