Amazonian Jungle Vine Erases Arthritis

Dear Reader,

An unexpected natural remedy for arthritis has been discovered in the Amazon jungle.

Its scientific name is Uncaria tomentosa, but most call it “cat’s claw.”

Cat’s claw gets its name from the claw-like thorns that grow around the stem of the plant, which can reach up to 100 feet.

This woody jungle vine may have a holistic effect on the body in that it can improve a variety of different chronic and acute health conditions.

Cat’s claw has a history of being used as a natural health booster in South America going as far back as the Inca civilization.

And the tribes of the Amazon used this plant to promote good health, too.

But cat’s claw is a relatively new natural medicine to us in North America, and folk medicine claims have recently piqued the interest of U.S.-based researchers.

Several scientific studies have confirmed claims that it can naturally improve both rheumatoid arthritis and osteoarthritis.

This plant’s incredible healing powers seem to stem from its ability to modulate the immune system, repair DNA, and eliminate free radicals that cause cellular damage.

Researchers observed the effects of cat’s claw on osteoarthritis of the knee in a study carried out in 2001.

Each day, half of the participants took 100 mg of cat’s claw in freeze-dried form, and the other half took an identical-looking placebo.

Within just a few weeks of therapy, the participants experienced far less pain associated with movement.

The study authors concluded that cat’s claw is an effective option for osteoarthritis without any significant side effects.1

Another double-blind study, which was published by the Journal of Rheumatology, assessed the effects of cat’s claw on patients with rheumatoid arthritis.2 The patients in this study had active arthritis and were using conventional arthritis medications.

Half of the participants used cat’s claw along with their medication, and half took the placebo along with their medication.

Over 24 weeks, the group using cat’s claw experienced significant improvements, including fewer overall painful joints compared to the control group.

The researchers believe these results were due to the pentacyclic oxindole alkaloids found in the vine. These are compounds that help modulate the immune system.

Lab and animal studies also show that cat’s claw has the ability to prevent the activation of certain inflammatory substances in the body.

These anti-inflammatory effects may even benefit more than just those with arthritis (think: inflammatory bowel disease, asthma, allergies, Alzheimer’s).

The root and bark of the plant are what is most often used in natural medicines. You can find cat’s claw ground up in capsules for quick and easy use. There are also cat’s claw teas and extracts available.

For arthritis use, many recommend using around 100 mg of cat’s claw. In most people, there aren’t any severe side effects associated with using this amount.

Do keep in mind that some individuals with sensitive stomachs may experience stomachaches when using cat’s claw supplements. Of course, those on medications should stay on the safe side and ask their doctor before trying cat’s claw.

To your health,
