Cat's Claw is a vine found in the rainforests of Peru. The vine gets its name from the small thorns at the base of the leaves, which looks like a cat's claw. These claws enable the vine to climb to heights of up to 30 metres. It has been gaining popularity world wide as an effective multi-purpose nutritional supplement.

The active substances in Cat's Claw are alkaloids, tannins and several other phytochemicals. Some of the alkaloids have been shown to boost the immune system. The major alkaloid rhynchophylline has anti-hypertensive effects and may reduce the risk of stroke and heart attack by lowering blood pressure, increasing circulation, reducing heart rate and controlling cholesterol. In addition to this herb's immunologic properties, some research indicates that Uncaria tomentosa has antiviral, antioxidant and anti-inflammatory.
