Cat's Claw or Una de gato - Also "Opener of the way" (Vine Bark) (Rubiaceae Uncaria Tomentosa Wild)
Old bile and undigested fats can line the intestine and block absorption of vital nutrients. Cat's Claw helps scrub the old material away, disrupting Candida and parasites, supporting healthy microflora and facilitating complete assimilation of nutrients and a more thorough disposal of toxins. Gradually, this helps promote digestion and reduces gas. Cat's Claw is wildcrafted from the Peruvian rainforests in a way which preserves the root stock and continued growth of the plant. The use of this slow-growing vine dates back to the ancient Inca. Medical studies in Austria, Italy, Germany, Hungary, England and Peru have explored it's unique phytonutrient values for promoting overall health, especially support of the immune system in its fight of cancer and viruses. It provides unique, previously unknown phytonutrients and synergistic combinations which support T-Lymphocytes and macrophages for a "pronounced enhancement of phagocytosis", the immune system's dissolving of invaders. It also exhibits support for antileukemic effects on cell walls. The immune system seems better able to specifically target cellular mutations and inhibit their development. Studies of Cat's Claw are also yielding favorable reviews in regard to longevity, grey hair returning to original color, arthritis, sinus and ear infections, diabetes, Crohn's, leaky bowel syndrome, canker sores, allergies and asthma, cirrhosis, prostatitis, hemorrhoids, inflammations, ulcers, herpes and other viral infections. Cat's Claw delivers strong antioxidant protection from radiation and toxins.
