Cat’s Claw (Uncaria tomentosa), also known as Hawk’s Claw, Pot Hook and Sparrowhawk Nail, is a woody vine in the Coffee family (Rubiaceae), native to South and Central America (Amazon). It typically grows to 30 – 100 meters (100-350ft) tall, climbing by means of hook-like thorns (which give it ist name) on the trees oft he rainforest. The base stem can reach 25 cm (10in) in diameter and the leaves are elliptic with a smooth edge, and grow in opposite whorls of two.

Bio-active ingredients include various alcaloids, in particular oxindolalic alkaloids, uncarin F, triterpenes, flavanoids and tanning agents; these substances have known anti-viral, anti-bacterial, anti-cancerogenic, anti-rheumatic and pain-killing properties.

Cat’s Claw is a complementary remedy in treatment of a wide variety of cancers, namely prostate, breast, stomach, bone, lung and ovary cancers, lymphoma, leukemia and rhabdomyo sarkoma (muscle cancer). No side effects have been observed; instead, pain and other effects caused by chemotherapy were greatly reduced.

Persons suffering from asthma, bronchitis, polyarthrosis, rheumatoid arthritis and AIDS/HIV and taking Cat’s Claw have reported significant improvement of their conditions. Trials with smokers conducted at the University of Milan, Italy, showed a reduction of cancerogenic substances in the urine after intake of Cat’s Claw.

History: Cat’s Claw was used by Ashanca Incas over 2'000 years ago. In Lima, Peru, between 1984 and 1989, the oncologist Felipe Mirez treated over 2000 cancer patients with Cat’s Claw; most patients experienced a reduction in the size of their tumors, as well as a increase of granulocytes, phagocytes and macrophages, which in turn reduced or even inhibited the growth of micro-pathogens like bacteria, parasites, and their metabolisms.


Take 3-6 capsules daily, with plenty of water.
