Though cat’s claw is not the most widely known supplement, this tropical vine that grows in the Amazon and areas of Central and South America has a whole host of incredible health benefits.
Medicinal use of the inner bark of cat’s claw dates back 2000 years to the Inca civilization, and to this day South American Ashaninka priests regard the plant as sacred, using it for healing and in religious ceremonies.
In the modern world, it’s still highly regarded amongst the supplement world and health professionals to have powerful immune-boosting capabilities as well as a treatment for arthritis and osteoporosis due to its anti-inflammatory effects.
Cat’s claw was given its name due to the vine’s hooked thorns which resemble those of a cat, and it’s known primarily for its immune-modulating and antioxidant qualities.
Immune-modulating simply means a substance that affects the functioning of the immune system. Cat’s Claw is rich in three specific compounds; alkaloids, terpenoids and flavonoids which work by increasing the number of white blood cells which in turn helps the body to fight infection.
This has been clinically proven by medical studies, one of which asked participants to consume 700mg of cat's claw across 2 months to see the effect it has on their bodies and found that it did indeed increase their number of white blood cells.
Cat’s claw is commonly available in tea, capsules, tablets and liposomal form - the latter of which has been proven to be more easily absorbed by the body.
Just two pumps a day of our liposomal cat’s claw is enough to have you soon reaping the rewards of this magical vine.
