SunFood Cat's Claw Tea-Cut Description
This is the pure dried, ground, alkaloid-rich bark of Cat's Claw (sometimes called Una Da Gato or Uncaria tomentosa).
Cat's claw is probably the most revered medicinal herb in all of the South American Amazonian rainforest. The alkaloids found in cat's claw have been documented to nutritionally support the immune system in various ways. Cat's Claw has often been noted for its impressive anti-viral capacity, as well as its ability to bring balance to an overstressed immune system.
Dosage: 1 Teaspoon makes 1-2 liters of tea. Adding lemon juice when heating will help extract more alkaloids and less tannins from the bark. Use about 1 tablespoon of lemon juice per liter of water. One may add 1 Tablespoon of Pau D'Arco to the cat's claw tea to make a traditional Shipibo Peruvian tea.
