Cat's Claw - Cat's claw extract is derived from the inner vine bard and is standardized to contain 3% alkaloids and 15% polyphenols, providing potential joint, cardiovascular, immune and gastrointestinal function support. This cat's claw extract contains 2.73% POAs and 0.27% TOAs.

What Is It?

Cat's claw, Uncaria tomentosa, is an herbal extract. It has been used traditionally in Peru for over 2,000 years. Alkaloids, phenols, sterols and glycosides comprise some of the naturally occurring constituents of this herb.

Uses For Cat's Claw

Joint Health: In a 52-week, randomized double blind trial, cat's claw extract promoted joint comfort in volunteers. A 4-week study also suggests that cat's claw has the ability to promote joint comfort, in part by moderating prostaglandin metabolism. Other mechanisms of action that may account for these effects include modulation of both oxidative stress and cytokine production.*

Cardiovascular Health: Cardiovascular protective properties include support for healthy vascular and platelet function.*

Immune Support: Cat's claw alkaloids have been specifically associated with enhancing immune system cell function, including phagocytosis and macrophage activity.*

Gastrointestinal Health: Studies involving cultured gastric epithelial cells suggest that cat's claw may provide important antioxidant protection for gut health.*

What Is The Source?

This extract is sourced from the inner vine bark of Cat's claw (Uncaria tomentosa). It is standardized to contain 3% oxindole alkaloids (2.73% POAs and 0.27% TOAs). Vitamin C (ascorbyl palmitate) is derived from corn dextrose fermentation.

Are There Any Potential Drug Interactions?

Cat's claw may be contraindicated for individuals who are taking blood thinning or antihypertensive medications due to a potential synergistic effect.
