Cat’s Claw: a medicinal plant with long tradition
What is slowly being discovered as a medicinal plant in this country has a long tradition in many parts of Latin America: the cat's claw. The Liana-like tropical plant bears the botanical name Uncaria tomentosa.
The Indians of the Peruvian rainforest have been appreciating the cat's claw for centuries and have been mainly using it as a versatile medicinal plant. With its help, they have always cured many different kinds of health problems - both external and internal - and also used it preventively, as a protective measure against diseases.
Where does its name come from?
In Peru, the cat's claw is called Una de Gato, which means freely translated "cat’s claw" or "cat’s thorn". The cat's claw owes its name to the conspicuous, claw-like thorns, with whose help they like to climp on the trees of the rainforest - sometimes this happens up to high heights of over 60 meters. Moreover, the plant is found especially in the moist, rather shady parts of the rainforest.
Valuable extract directly from the bark
In contrast to many other plants, whose healing effect is contained in the leaves, the flowers or sometimes in the stems, the cat's claw hides its most valuable ingredient exceptionally well: Only in the inner root cortex, those hidden parts can be exploited. The extract from the inside of this bark is ground to a fine, light brown powder – and this powder is the basis for all further processing and dosage forms.
But what makes the bark of the cat's claw so extraordinary? The answer lies in their ingredients: Both the bark and the extracted extract are packed with valuable alkaloids, quinovinyl glycosides, terpenoids and flavonoids. Alkaloids are natural, regulating plant substances that occur in nature in a remarkable variety; it is estimated that there are well over 10,000 different subspecies.
As natural anti-inflammatory agents, the quinovinyl acid glycosides appear. The terpenoids are said to have a protective effect on the mitochondria - the human cells of strength. Flavonoids belong to the so-called phytochemicals and can only be produced in a certain cell type. Flavonoids are used today in many common medicines, especially those intended to regulate the activity of the stomach, digestive tract and intestines.
The tea as the most traditional form of use
The cat's claw can be used in many different dosage forms. The possibilities range from ointments and soaked fomentations to capsules. However, the original native form of use was initiated in South America itself: the freshly prepared tea.
Especially Indians made use of the tea from cat's claw in order to cure various ailments - both internal and external. The special feature of the tea from cat's claw lies in its own special form of preparation: It is not only brewed, as it is usual, but it is regularly boiled. After a cooking time of about five minutes, the tea has to be boiled for another fifteen minutes in order to develop its full potential.

Absolutely harmless raw materials
Of course, the extract of the cat's claw is microbiologically examined before the further process begins. Only if the raw material is classified as absolutely harmless, it will be approved for production.

Because, unlike to other products that often rely on animal gelatin in their production chain, ZeinPharma renounces 100% with animal ingredients.

Celluose is an optimal alternative to gelatin: it is extracted from the walls of plan stems, is well tolerated and does not provoke allergies caused by foods.
