25 gr Catsclaw -Uncaria tomentosa – Supplement
Uncaria tomentosa, also known by the trivial name as “Cat’s claw” or “Una de Gato,” is a woody vine with root bark used in the tribal health traditions of Ashaninka Indians in Peru.
Uncaria tomentosa (Uncaria) is a plant from the family Rubiaceae growing in Central America and the Amazon rain forests of South America. It takes 20 years for the plant to reach maturity, and it can grow over 100 feet in length as it attaches and wraps around the trees.
Its common name “Cat’s claw” originates from the shape of the thorns projecting from the base of its leaves. In Ayurveda traditional Indian practices, this plant is known by the name of “Vilcacora.” The Spanish call it “una de gato” which translates to English as “tomcat’s claw.”
