Cat's claw is native to the Amazon rain forest and grows in tropical areas of South and Central America. Native Americans dating back to the Incan era have used the bark and root of this herb to treat a variety of health issues including arthritis, stomach ulcers, inflammation, dysentery, and fevers.
In vitro studies suggest that cat's claw may help stimulate the immune system, assist in relaxing the smooth muscles (such as the intestines), help dilate blood vessels, and may act as a diuretic.
