Many people, including me, harbour a fanciful yet plausible belief that nature has indeed created a botanical cure-all buried in the depths of some rain forest and still untouched by civilization. One day, perhaps, we will discover this mythical plant. Until then we have cat’s claw, touted by many as the closest thing yet to an herbal panacea.
Harvested in the Peruvian rain forest, cat’s claw is one of my most widely prescribed herbs. South American herbalists have dispensed it for centuries, and I use it to treat many of the same ailments: digestive problems, ulcers, arthritis and inflammatory ailments. Since the 1970s European researchers have been establishing a sound scientific foundation for these applications and others. The herb can lower blood pressure and cholesterol and, as animal studies suggest, may help to deter blood from clotting. It also contains a number of compounds that, among other effects, may enhance the immune system and inhibit cancer.
Not all varieties of cat’s claw offer the same therapeutic benefit. The Uncarta tomentosa type possesses the most health- promoting qualities. A similar variety, Uttcaria guianesis, is helpful but lacks tomentosa’s most medically important compound, called isopterodine. Brewed teas and diluted extracts, known as tinctures, are probably the best ways to absorb the active ingredients in cat’s claw, although capsules seem to work just as well if they contain a standardized extract. Avoid supplements of ground cat’s claw bark. The bark is indigestible and, therefore, probably of no benefit.
I have found an unacceptably wide variety of potencies between one distributor’s products and another. This makes dosage recommendations difficult. For instance, the cat’s claw I prescribe for my patients is effective in three to six capsules of 500 mg each. An experienced herbal practitioner should be able to advise you.
how do you make tea from this product?
In Medical Medium Life-Changing Foods: Makes 4 cups Boil 4 cups of water. For each serving of tea, use 1 teaspoon of cat's claw per cup of hot water* Steep for 5 minutes or more Serve with lemon slices and raw honey, if desired
*If stronger, more medicinal tea is desired, use 2 teaspoons or up to 1 tablespoon of cat's claw per cup of hot water
He also says, "There's nothing like drinking a cup of this cat's claw tea as you watch the moon rise to activate your body's healing potential. It's an especially useful practice when you've done yoga or Pilates earlier in the day."

Resets kratom tolerance
October 5, 2019
I heard from a botanical group that this herb at night would lower my tolerance for kratom in the morning, so I decided to try it. And it works! I'm totally full of energy again and pain free when I take my doses of green kratom, and no longer having to mix in the red vein kind to try to bump up its pain relieving properties.
I can't really say anything about this relieving pain... ? Because I take it at night. It doesn't affect my sleep in any way. And it's supposed to boost immunity - something I can use since I have a weak immune system anyway - but I can't really comment on that yet because I haven't been taking it long enough to know if it's causing me to get sick less.
