Catís Claw General Information
Cat's Claw (Gambir) is a woody, climbing shrub native to the Amazon rain forest and other tropical areas of South and Central America, such as; Peru, Colombia, Ecuador, Guyana, Trinidad and more. The herb earns its name from the curved thorns on the vine that resemble the claws of a cat. Two species of cat's claw are found in the rain forest: Uncaria tomentosa (small yellowish-white flowers) and Uncaria guianensis (reddish-orange flowers and thorns that are more curved). Although these species are similar in appearance and have been used in many of the same ways, research on Uncaria tomentosa has revealed it to be more valuable as a therapeutic agent. Catís Claw is now a major source of revenue for the Ashaninka Indian tribe of Peru. Research on Catís Claw began in the 70ís; it did not gain worldwide attention until the 90ís.

There has been one unfortunate side effect of recent interest in Cat's Claw has been its virtual extinction in parts of the rain forest. According to the Herb Research Foundation, the government of Peru has had to outlaw the export of all wild Catsí Claw plants. Almost all cat's claw root and bark used for commercial preparations as of 2003 comes from cultivated plants.

The World Health Organization in May of 1994 sponsored the First International Conference on Catís Claw in Geneva, Switzerland. Catís Claw received official recognition as a medicinal plant at this conference. It was pointed out that not since Quinine was discovered in the bark of a Peruvian tree in the seventeenth century had any other rainforest plant ever prompted such worldwide attention.

Catís Claw Uses & Scientific Evidence For
The indigenous people of Peru use Catís Claw stems as a treatment for cancer, diabetes, ulcers, arthritis, infections, and as an aid in recovery from childbirth. It is also used as a contraceptive. Samento is the rare form of Cat's Claw; only it is different in that it is 1000 times stronger in strengthening the immune system. In Europe and Peru, Catís Claw is used as a treatment for viral diseases such as herpes, shingles and feline leukemia virus. In the 90ís it was discovered to be a possible treatment for AIDS and HIV infection. At this time, studies are in progress for its use in treat allergies, stomach ulcers, rheumatoid arthritis, and osteoarthritis. The watery extract of the young shoots is used to dilate peripheral blood vessels and lower blood pressure. It acts as a sedative as well. The Peruvian Indians use Catís Claw to treat cancer; however, there have been no studies to confirm its effectiveness. Samento has anti-tumor, antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties that are effective in the treating of immune system related conditions and intestinal disorders.

Cat's claw's anti-inflammatory actions have been effective in relieving the stiffness and swelling prevalent in arthritis, rheumatism, and joint pain. An Austrian study published in 2002 found that Cat's Claw significantly reduced joint tenderness and swelling in a sample of 40 patients with rheumatoid arthritis, with only minor side effects and no interactions with the patients' other arthritis medications. A recent study done in Peru indicates that the anti-inflammatory effects of cat's claw are stronger in extracts made with alcohol than in water-based solutions.
