Hailed as a wonder-herb from deep within the Amazonian rainforest, its name comes from the little claw-like protrusions along its stem which indeed look like a cats claw. It has long been used as a traditional medicine of the Ashanikas and other tribes of Peru who have employed it in various ways from bodily balance to shamanism.
It is an immune-stimulating powerhouse that has been proven to help eliminate free radicals that cause cellular damage.
It relieves chronic pain, and is adaptogenic, anti-microbial, antiviral, anti-inflammatory and anti-tumor.
