Cat’s Claw is a woody vine native to the tropical jungles of South and Central America which gets its name from the shape of its thorns. The vine’s bark has been traditionally used to support healthy joint function, and is a soothing tonic for the GI tract. It has anti-inflammatory properties and may help stimulate the immune system.
