Una de Gato (Uncaria tomentosa) 50g




Cat’s Claw, or Una de gato in Latin America, is a woody climber that can grow up to 60m with its modified flowering stalks, the hooked appendages that resemble a cat’s claw. Two main species are used in medicine, Uncaria tomentosa and Uncaria guianensis (with more rounded hook appendages). Family Rubiaceae.

Cat’s Claw is considered antibacterial, anti-inflammatory, anti-mutagenic, antioxidant, antiviral, cytostatic, depurative, diuretic, hypotensive, immunostimulant and a vermifuge. Traditionally a daily dose of 2-6g as a tea was used.
