Cat’s claw is a woody, climbing vine that grows in the South American Rainforests and can often be found growing into the canopy. Once mature, the top part of the plant is cut away, enabling the rootstock to regrow quickly. Harvesting in this method ensures sustainability of this wonderful herb for future generations.
Also known as “Uña de gato” in Spanish, Cat’s Claw (inner bark) has been used by the Peruvian natives of the Amazon for centuries. Its discovery in 1970 by a scientific expedition has led to its widespread popularity and use throughout the Western world.
