Caption: Cat's Claw (Uncaria tomentosa). Cats Claw is used traditionally in Peruvian medicine for the treatment of a wide range of health problems; particularly digestive complaints; arthritis; wounds; and stomach problems. Scientists have found the oxindole alkaloids in the bark and roots seem to stimulate the immune system. They seem to increase the immune response in the body; acting as antioxidants. Cat's Claw may also have anti-viral and anti-bacterial properties. It is being used as an adjunctive treatment for cancer and AIDS.
