Origin and things worth knowing

This ancient medicinal plant, which is also known as Cat's Claw and is native to the Amazon region, is revered as sacred by many indigenous peoples of South America (such as the Conibo or Casibo) because of its broad spectrum of medicinal effects.

The sharp thorns in the leaf axes of this liana, which can grow up to 100 m long and up to 30 cm thick, give it its name.

From the root to the bark to the leaves, the entire plant is used for the following different diseases and ailments:

- Asthma

- arthritis

- Dermatitis

- Diabetes

- Diarrhea

- Inflammation (e.g. urinary tract inflammation or inflammation in the mouth)

- gastritis

- Menstrual problems and irregular cycle

- weakened immune system

- viral diseases

- Ulcers / benign and malignant tumors

In the 1990s, the WHO (World Health Organization) recognized cat's claw as a traditional medicinal plant and confirmed the following effects in studies:

- antioxidant (attacks free radicals)

- anti-inflammatory (against inflammation)

- analgesic

- antiviral

- antitumor (against cancer)

- anti-oedematous (against fluid accumulation in the tissue)

- immunomodulating (strengthening in case of immune deficiency or regulating in case of overreaction)

- Lowering cholesterol

Since cat's claw can also have a contraceptive effect, the tea should be avoided if you are planning to have children. Pregnant and breastfeeding women should not drink the tea either!

Cat's claw contains the following active ingredients :

- Indole alkaloids: these damage tumor cells

- Procyanidins: these serve to bind free radicals and protect against cancer

- Sterols : these inhibit the formation of proteins that can lead to Alzheimer's

- Triterpenes : these have a beneficial effect on cholesterol levels

Preparation as a tea:

As a stimulant : Put a teaspoon of cat's claw in a cup, pour boiling water over it and leave covered for 8 - 10 minutes.

For gastrointestinal problems such as gastritis, skin disorders, arthritis or even cancer, let about 20g of cat's claw simmer covered in 1L of water for 45 minutes. After that, sit down and drink throughout the day.

For arthritis, diabetes, cirrhosis of the liver, rheumatism or malignant tumors, let 2 teaspoons of cat's claw simmer in 1 1/2 liters of water, covered, for at least 30 minutes.

After the brew has cooled down, at least half a glass should be drunk before each meal.
