Traditionally may assist with:

Uncaria tomentosa or Uña de Gato, commonly known as Cats Claw, has been used by the indigenous peoples of South and Central America for over two thousand years. More recently, Cat's Claw remedies have been used in Peru and Europe (as of the early 1990s) as an adjunctive treatment for cancer, chemotherapy support, AIDS, as well as for other diseases that target the immune system. A class of compounds known as carboxyl alkylesters, found in Cat's Claw, has been documented to exhibit immune modulating, anti-inflammatory,anti-cancerous and cell-repairing properties. In addition to the immune-modulating alkaloids,the synergistic phytochemicals in Cats Claw contain the alkaloids rhynchophylline, hirsutine, andmitraphylline, which have demonstrated hypotensive and vasodilating properties. Rhynchophylline hasshown to prevent blood clots in blood vessels, dilate peripheral blood vessels, lower the heart rate, andlower blood levels of cholesterol. Mytraphylline has diuretic properties and hirsutine inhibits urinary bladdercontractions and possesses local anesthetic. Newer research indicates that Cat's Claw might be helpful to people with Alzheimer's disease. Theseresults could be attributable to the antioxidant effects previously confirmed or possibly, to the dilation of peripheral blood vessels in the brain by alkaloids such as rhynchophylline. Today, both Cats Claw and the botanical Fenugreek are employed around the world in eclectic medicine for a variety of conditions. These include various immune disorders such as gastritis,ulcers, Cancer, Arthritis, Rheumatism, rheumatic disorders, neuralgias, chronic inflammation of all kinds, and such viral conditions as herpes zoster (shingles). Recent studies on remedies containing Cat's Claw and Fenugreek indicate that they are able to open the way to cleanse the entire intestinal tract and are effective in treating stomach and bowel disorder, such as Crohn's disease, ulcers, gastritis, diverticulitis, and other inflammatory conditions of the bowel, stomach and intestines.Cat's Claw and Fenugreek contain several groups of plant chemicals that account for their healing and stimulating action on the body: 1. First and most studied is a group of oxidole alkaloids that have been documented to exhibit immune-stimulant and anti-leukemic properties.2. Another group of chemicals, called quinovic acid glycosides, have been documented to possess anti-inflammatory, anti-bacterial, anti-fungal, and antiviral actions. 3. Antioxidant chemicals (tannins, catechins and procyanidins) as well as plant sterols (betasitosterol,stigmasterol, and campesterol) are responsible for the anti-inflammatory properties of these botanicals.Cats Claw Intrinsic is an exceptional example of the power of South American botanicals, particularly in combination with Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM), Western and Ayurvedic principles for a plethora of civilization conditions. Out of respect for the delicate balance necessary in gathering indigenous species we purchase only spiral stripped, uncaria tomentosa to insure the continued life and survival of the harvested vine.Cats Claw Intrinsic is a significant remedy in the support of the immune modulation, especially in the presence of bacterial, fungal, or viral infection.
