| Cats Claw is a vine commonly known as Una de Gato and is used traditionally in Peruvian medicine and has been known to show benefits for digestive complaints, arthritis, treating wounds, stomach problems, cancer, and more. The most attention has been given to the oxindole alkaloids found in the bark and roots of Cats Claw, which have been documented to stimulate the immune system. Compounds found in Cat's Claw may also work to kill viruses, bacteria, and other microorganisms that cause disease, and they work to inhibit healthy cells from becoming cancerous. This herb's anti-inflammatory properties may help to relieve arthritis, gout, and other inflammatory problems. Cat's Claw may help create support for the intestinal and immune systems of the body, and may also create intestinal support with its ability to cleanse the entire intestinal tract. This cleansing helps create support for people experiencing different stomach and bowel disorders, including: colitis, Crohn's disease, irritable bowel syndrome, and leaky bowel syndrome.
