Cats Claw Products

Cats Claw Products

This large woody vine grows in proliferation throughout the jungles of the Amazon rainforest and has been used medicinally by numerous tribes for well over 2,000 years. Indigo Herbs brings you three premium Cat Claw ingredients that can be added to your home medicine cabinet. These are; Cats Claw Powder, Cats Claw Tincture and Cats Claw Tea.

As the name suggests this plant has a one hook thorn that resembles a single nail of a cat claw. Other names include pot hook, hawk's claw and sparrow hawk nail. Within the Amazon Rain forest the Peruvian tribes of the Aguaruna, Asháninka, Campa, Cashibo, Conibo and Shipibo all use this plant medicinally for a great number of bodily complaints. The Asháninka have the longest recorded history of using Uncaria tomentosa and are also the largest commercial source of the plant. This tribe live in the heart of the rainforest and are thought to have taught all other tribes about the qualities of Cats Claw. During the time of the Incas it is said that the use of this plant was restricted to the ruler and the royal family only. From early historical references there have always been two different types of Cats Claw; the first is Uncaria tomentosa (or ‘uña de gato roja’ – red Cats Claw) while the second is Uncaria guianensis (or ‘uña de gato blanca’ – white Cats Claw). Both are given an extraordinarily high status amongst the Asháninka as being deities incarnate and are totally interchangeable from one another. The dry stems of the plant are often used to carve the faces of other deities because of the holy nature of the plant. It is said that these two plants are used in the context of regulating the manifest and metaphysical worlds of these rainforest tribes. 

Cats claw is a creeping perennial liana that can grow to a very large size. It can reach up to 30 meters in height by using its claw like appendage as an anchor and pulling itself along or upward. A single plant can grow into the forest canopy as well as long distances along the rainforest floor. The leaves are bright green, oval and grow opposite each other on the vine. If a branch is broken then it will excrete a clear watery sap. Flowers are generally yellow, trumpet shaped (a little like a daffodil) and hermaphrodite. A single plant can take over a whole tree as a host, a little like common European ivy.

Using Herbal and Superfood powders on a daily basis is simple, easy and can be really delicious. The simplest way is to rehydrate the powder in a little filtered water to make a shot, this can easily be prepared once, twice or three times per day if you are taking the herbs therapeutically. However sometimes the herbs can be bitter so the botanical powders can be added to a superfood smoothie instead of just water. The smoothie can be made with a base of nut milk, seed milk or non-dairy milk such as rice milk. Alternatively the main body of the smoothie can be created with fruit or vegetable juices. 

Additional superfood and herb powders can be added to fortify the smoothie with extra beneficial properties. The powders are largely dissolvable and can be scooped in and then blended, shaken or stirred until fully mixed with the liquid. Any true Superfood smoothie disciple would advise that the list of possibilities is endless with the goal to feel great and potentially replace a meal with this glass of super goodness. For full instructions go to our How to take Herbal Powders page.

Another option is to use a Capsule Machine that can be bought from the Indigo Herbs website. Filling capsules with your favourite herb has never been easier when you buy a Capsule machine. You can then be sure that the capsules you are taking are 100% pure ingredients without fillers added by some companies.

In Peru this powder is boiled in water for about 20 minutes before it is drunk but it can just as easily be mixed into a smoothie or herbal powder blend.

Serving:

Traditionally taken: 1 cup of water to 1 teaspoon of Cats Claw Powder, 2-3 times daily.

1 teaspoon equals 3 grams (1tsp = 3g)

This finely milled powder has been made out of the reddish bark of the Cats Claw vine, sustainably harvested from wild rainforests. When the plant has reached a maturity of around 8 years old the bark is ready to be harvested. After the all branches have been stripped, the bark is cleaned and slow dried so only a little of the moisture is left in the plant material. After a selection process the bark can then be milled into a fine powder and be made ready for testing. Testing consists of toxicology looking for foreign bacteria, heavy metals and other pollutants. When the powder has passed all the required tests it is made ready for shipping.

Cats Claw contains a lot of tannins and so larger servings may cause mild stomach upset. Always increase servings in slight increments.

Making a delicious cup of tea with loose leaf herbs is simple and easy. Brewing loose leaves is a traditional art with many different styles and varying items of tea brewing equipment on the market. There are one cup teaballs that can be filled with loose leaves, flowers, and barks and submerged straight into a boiling cup of hot water and then left to infuse. The rule of thumb with brewing loose leaves is to allow them to fully release their beneficial aromatic phyto-chemical content.

This process is lovingly called brewing and takes 5-10 minutes so a tea cosy is recommended if you are using a pot. When making a pot of tea it is advised that you use one teaspoon of loose leaf tea per person and one for the pot. Any true tea maker who truly appreciates the art would recommend heating the pot first, and of course when the tea is fully infused it is absolutely necessary that the drinker sits down and takes a minute to enjoy! For full instructions go to our How to make Herbal Tea Page.

Grab a teapot, a cafetiere or your tea making equipment of choice. Cats Claw Tea can be made into an herbal tea by infusing the herb in boiling water. Use 1 cup of boiling water per person. Let the tea brew for 5 - 15 minutes, relax and enjoy.

 Serving:

1-2 teaspoons dried herb per 1 cup of boiling water, 3 times a day.

1 teaspoon equals 1 gram (1 tsp = 1g)

Taking herbal remedies in a Tincture or Fluid extract preparation is simple and easy. The tincture can be measured out in a small ml measuring cup, medicine cup or spoon, and the tincture can be taken directly.

However some people do find the bitter tincture taste to be too strong, so it may be a good idea to dilute the drops in water or fruit juice. For children, the elderly, those with a sensitive constitution or those avoiding alcohol, the alcohol can be evaporated from the tincture. This can be done by putting the drops in boiling water and leaving for 10 minutes to evaporate. For full instructions go to our How to take Herbal Tincture page.

Cats Claw Tincture can be added to water or fruit juice.

 Serving:

Cats Claw Tincture:
Traditionally Taken: 2-3ml taken 2-3 times per day.
or as directed by a Herbal practitioner.

20 drops from the glass dropper equals approximately 1ml.

The greatest phytochemical properties of the Cat’s Claw vine lay in the bark of the plant. The plant must be at least 8 years old before it can be harvested for its bark. After careful selection and cleaning the plant material undergoes a process of cold percolation in order to extract the active constituents into tincture form. The cold percolation method employs a gradient circulation of the solution which keeps the plant ingredients in perpetual contact with the ethanol. This technique is faster and more efficient than maceration and ensures there is less waste of precious plant materials. This premium quality product is manufactured to GMP standards and Quality Assured by Indigo Herbs. It is 100% pure botanical ingredients, completely free of synthetic ingredients with absolutely nothing added.

Do not take Cat's Claw if on blood thinning medication. It is not recommended to take Cat’s Claw if you have scheduled surgery. 

Large quantities can cause stomach upset because of the large number of tannins in the bark. It is recommended to increase dose in increments to lessen the symptoms of detoxification. 

Always consult your healthcare professional if taking prescription medication.
