SCIENTIFIC PROPERTIES OF CAT'S CLAW UNCARIA TOMENTOSA WILLD DC
Prestigious world renown research have proven some properties of the natural Cat's Claw.
In the first Italian-Peruvian Traditional Medicine Congress held in Italy in 1992, Dr. M. Warner discussed the immune system stimulants and anti-inflammatory properties of the Cat's Claw, Uncaria Tomentosa Willd DC. Dr. Livia Bianchi from the University of Pavia, Italy showed evidence of the antimutant and antioxidant properties in Cat's Claw. Dr. Gianfranco Puloso presented its antiviral and antitumor properties.
Dr. Klaus Keplinger of the University of Innsbruck, Austria, patented in the United States the discovery of Cat's Claw Uncaria Tomentosa Willd DC, as a stimulant to the immune system. Patent #4,884,901
In 1993, Doctors Rizzi, Aquino, Simonone Vincieri and Pizza of the Universities of Milan and Naples researched and presented evidence that suggested that Uncaria, Tomentosa Willd DC may benefit in the treatment of cancer, due to its intense antimutant action as well as antiviral properties.
The highly acclaimed book, Vibrational Healing by Dr. Richard Gerber, claims that Cat's Claw is promising in the treatment of arthritis and may benefit people with artery problems; it also suggests that Cat's Claw may help in the reduction of secondary effects of radiation and chemotherapy associated with cancer treatments.
Dr. Brent W. Davis who has worked with Cat's Claw for several years informs us of an extraordinary property which cleans the entire intestinal tract and also helps with illnesses such as Crohn's disease, diverticulitis, colitis, hemorrhoids, ulcers and helps balance the intestinal flora. In Dr. Davis's words, "Cat's Claw is worldly classified as a plant that has the power to stop and reverse chronic illnesses, allowing for rapid recovery."
Cat's Claw has all the right properties to help prevent and treat distinct illnesses.
