Cats Claw Uncaria tomentosa



catsclaw

Scientific Name: Uncaria tomentosa

Properties: anti-bacterial, anti-inflammatory, anti-mutagenic, antioxidant, anti-tumerous, anti-viral, cytostatic, depurative, diuretic, hypotensive, immunostimulant, vermifuge. Applications: intestinal issues, asthma, wounds, cancer, tumors, arthritis, inflammations, diabetes, irregularities of the menstrual cycle, fevers, ulcers, dysentery and rheumatism.

          This little known remedy was used in ancient healing practices as well as the metaphysical arts. It's thought to be beneficial for rheumatoid arthritis. In South America, Cat's Claw has been used for treating various disorders. Even in Brazilian medicine, it's prized for its ability to reduce inflammation. Many swear by it as a potentiator for Kratom. Potentiator means something that enhances something else, or enables it to live up to its full potential.


Phytochemistry


                   What too many people believe is the ridiculous and ignorant notion that natural remedies are "bogus". University students around the world have been researching these plants and the complex pharmacological constituents that they create for quite some time now. Keep in mind that these plants use the suns energy, and the biospheres water and the co2 from the air, to manufacture highly sophisticated organic pharmacological compounds. Below is a list of some of these highly sophisticated chemicals made by the Cats Claw plant.

Pentacyclic oxindole alkaloids (pteropodine, isopteropodine, isomitraphylline, uncarine F), tetracyclic oxindole alkaloids (rhynchophylline, isorhynchophylline), quinovic acid glycosides, procyanidins, triterpenoid saponins.

Preparation


                 As a general rule of thumb, barks are most often made into decoctions. Teas are most often made using foliage, and flowers are mostly known for their high concentrations of essential oils. All of these can be made into tinctures, infusions, and spagyrics. Cats claw bark can be boiled for about 10 minutes. Adding a drop of oil to the mixture will prevent it from boiling over. It's advised to place a lid on top of it so that any volatile constituents are not evaporated. Reduce the heat almost immedately upon boiling.


Warning: Women who are pregnant, or may become pregnant should not use this herb. Herbs can interact with other herbs and medications. Talk to your doctor first.
