Cats Claw Powder
Known as the Life-Giving Vine to the Aguaruna, Cashibo, Conibo, Shipibo and most notably the Asháninka tribes in the amazon who have been using cats claw for at least 2,000 years. The active compounds in cat’s claw include oxidole alkaloids, triterpenes, phytosterols, and proanthocyanidins. Researchers have isolated unique alkaloids in the bark and roots that activate the immune system by increasing white blood cell activity.
Rynchophylline, another alkaloid isolated from cat’s claw, has antihypertensive properties that may be beneficial in lowering the risk of strokes and heart attacks by reducing heart rate, lowering blood pressure, increasing circulation, and lowering blood cholesterol levels.
This Ancient plant also contains quinovic acid glycosides which have documented anti- inflammatory benefits, and are effective in relieving the stiffness and swelling prevalent in arthritis, rheumatism, and joint pain.
