History of Cat’s Claw

Cat’s Claw is a woody vine that is found in the exotic highlands and jungles of the Amazon rain forest. This rain forest, which spans an area of almost 2.3 million square miles, gives life to more plant and animal species than any other ecosystem in the world. It is estimated that there are between 35,000 and 80,000 different plant species that can be found in this Amazon region. No one knows all the medicinal properties that the flora found in the Amazon rain forest have to offer.

This region has provided mankind with a large variety of therapeutic herbs, but its potential has barely been tapped. By conserving and respecting the Peruvian folklore of this region, Cat’s Claw was rediscovered. Cat’s Claw, which may be one of the Amazon’s most impressive health-promoters, has an alkaloid and phytochemical content that may distinguish it as one of the most important herbs of the 21st century.

The bark and roots of this vine have been used throughout history by Peruvian tribes as an invaluable natural medicine. Peruvian tribal folklore often talks of decoctions and teas that are made from the Cat’s Claw vine
