Cat's Claw is probably the
most revered medicinal herb in all of the South American Amazonian
rainforest and has been used by South Americans for centuries to treat health problems including arthritis, stomach ulcers, inflammation, dysentery, and fevers. It was also used as a form of birth control.Test tube studies indicate that cat's claw may stimulate the immune system, help relax the smooth muscles (such as the intestines), dilate blood vessels (helping lower blood pressure), and act as a diuretic (helping the body get rid of excess water).
Cat’s claw also has antioxidant properties, helping the body get rid of particles known as free radicals that damage cells. Scientists believe free radicals can contribute to health problems, including heart disease and cancer. Antioxidants can help neutralize free radicals and may reduce or even help prevent some of the damage they cause.
The alkaloids found in cat's claw have been documented to
nutritionally support the immune system in numerous ways.
Our Cat's Claw is ethically harvested (without killing the plant) and
the sale of this product supports indigenous peoples in Peru and helps
protect the Peruvian/Amazonian rainforest from being cut down for cattle
Suma is the root of a vine that grows in the tropical rainforest of South America. It contains "allantoin", a substance which assists in healing wounds. Suma contains significant amounts of Germanium, a trace mineral which stimulates the immune system and helps promote oxygen flow to cells. Suma is used as an “adaptogen” to help the body adapt to stress by improving the immune system. Suma is also used as a treatment for cancer and tumors, diabetes, and as a hormonal balancer.
Elderberry contains natural substances called flavonoids. They seem to help reduce swelling, fight inflammation, and boost the immune system. Studies have found that elderberry eases flu symptoms like fever, headache, sore throat, fatigue, cough, and body aches. The benefits seem to be greatest when started within 24 to 48 hours after the symptoms begin. One study found that elderberry could cut the duration of flu symptoms by more than 50%.
