Cat's Claw 500mg 180's is available by Pure Encapsulations.
Cat's claw, also known as Uncaria tomentosa,
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. The effects of these compounds are
far- reaching and include support for joint function, gastric and
intestinal health, cellular protection and immune activity. 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 maintaining
healthy prostaglandin metabolism. Other mechanisms of action that may
account for these effects include protecting from oxidative stress and
supporting healthy cytokine production. Studies involving cultured
gastric epithelial cells suggest that cat's claw may provide important
antioxidant protection for gut health. Cat's claw alkaloids have been
specifically associated with enhancing immune system cell function,
including phagocytosis and macrophage activity. Cardiovascular support
properties include support for healthy vascular and platelet function.
Preliminary evidence suggests that cat's claw may provide protective
support for healthy breast cell function. Cat's claw may be
contraindicated for individuals who are taking blood thinning or
antihypertensive medications due to a potential synergistic effect.
