HOW IT WORKS
Uña de Gato, or Cat’s Claw, is found in the lush rain forests of Peru. Native Ashaninka Indians have relied upon the benefits of Uña de Gato for centuries for a wide variety of health concerns. Current research indicates that it may play a valuable role in supporting the body’s immune system. Echinacea and astragalus are also beneficial for immune system support.
WHY UÑA DE GATO?
This herbal combination features Chinese astragalus root grown in the perfectly cool climate of north central China. The long, straight roots can grow a foot or more in length and are never harvested the first year, but after two or three years to ensure size. We have been working with our astragalus partner for more than 10 years and are proud to help provide income for families located in remote villages of this region.
THE STORY BEHIND UNA DE GATO (CAT'S CLAW)
Uña?de gato has been used by indigenous people in Central and South America for 2,000 years to help ward off disease. Astragalus?is native to China, Mongolia and North Korea and is known as?huang qi or yellow leader. This root has been used for more than 2,000 years and is still considered one of the 50 fundamental herbs of Traditional Chinese Medicine. Centuries ago, Native Americans turned to the healing power of echinacea, using it traditionally for respiratory support and discomfort. More recently, herbal practitioners have embraced echinacea to support the body’s natural defenses. After it became the most popular herbal remedy in the US in the early 1900s, echinacea’s cultivation spread to Europe. In the last few decades, we have discovered the many constituents that power this amazing plant’s benefits.
