Cat’s Claw (Uña de Gato) is the centerpiece of this innovative immune-supportive formula, enhanced with plant-derived essential oils and extracts, Vitamin D, and the fatty acid monolaurin, all designed to maximally protect the immune system.
Cat’s Claw is a climbing vine that thrives in the Peruvian rainforest—stretching as tall as a thousand feet. Medicinal use of the inner bark dates back 2000 years to the Inca civilization. South American Ashaninka priests regard the plant as sacred, using it for healing and in religious ceremonies.
The most widely utilized strain of cat’s claw, Uncaria tomentosa, boasts a treasure trove of phytonutrients responsible for the vine’s reputed healing powers and ability to strengthen immune defenses.
The fatty acid monolaurin is derived from lauric acid and is formed naturally in the human body in small quantities. Monolaurin works by binding directly to the lipid-protein envelope of invaders, preventing them from attaching and entering cells. Vitamin D is added to aid normal immune system function and bone health.
Plants worldwide protect themselves from pests by developing volatile oils that permeate their leaves, bark, or peel. These can offer many benefits to humans. Essential oils derived from spearmint rose, and lemon balm (Melissa officinalis) round out and fortify this unique formula. The fragrant extract of lemon balm is added as well.
