cat's claw bark

Cat’s claw is a perennial tropical vine that is native to the jungles of South and Central America, including Guatemala, Peru, Venezuela and Trinidad. It is so-named because the woody vine features long, sharp thorns that resemble a cat’s claw. Other common names for the herb include uña de gato, vilcacora, pot hook and hawk's claw.

For more than 2,000 years, the Shipibo, Conibo and Asháninka tribes of Peru have used cat’s claw, with the latter controlling the largest share of the world’s supply. Although cat’s claw is generally considered safe, people undergoing immunosupressive therapy are advised to avoid using this herb internally because of the potent immune stimulating activity of certain compounds in the plant.
