Cat's claw ( Uncaria tomentosa ) is a woody vine native to the Amazon rainforest and other tropical areas of South and Central America. It is named after the hook-like thorns that grow along its vine. The bark and root of this herb have been used by South Americans going back to the Inca civilization to treat a variety of health problems including arthritis, stomach ulcers, inflammation, dysentery, and fevers. It was also used as a form of birth control.
Test tube studies indicate that cat's claw may stimulate the immune system, help relax the smooth muscles (such as the intestines), dilate blood vessels (helping lower blood pressure), and act as a diuretic (helping rid the body of excess water). It also has antioxidant properties, helping rid the body of particles known as free radicals that damage cells.
