Uncaria tomentosa is a woody vine found in the tropical jungles of South and Central America.

Uncaria tomentosa is a liana deriving its name from hook-like thorns that resemble the claws of a cat. U. tomentosa can grow to a length of up to 30m, climbing by means of these thorns.

It favours mountain slopes in the organic soils of the primary (old growth) rainforest, between 250 and 900 meters above sea level. It can also be found in disturbed forest but rarely in secondary forest. Over harvesting and destruction of old growth rainforest are a serious threat to Uncaria tomentosa.


Medicinal Action and Uses

Anti-Inflammatory – The bark is traditionally used for inflammatory properties. It has been an effective natural remedy for the treatment of arthritis, gastritis, ulcers, and inflammatory bowel disorders.

Gastrointestinal – Cat’s Claw may help create intestinal support with its ability to cleanse the entire intestinal tract. This cleansing helps create support for people experiencing different stomach and bowel disorders, including: colitis, Crohn’s disease, irritable bowel syndrome, and leaky bowel syndrome.

Immunostimulant – Cat’s Claw Bark is said to be a natural immunostimulant, enhancing the function of white blood cells. Alkaloids found in the bark and roots of Cat’s Claw have been documented to stimulate the immune system. This has led to its use around the world as an adjunctive treatment for cancer and AIDS as well as other diseases which negatively impact the immune system.
