Pros: Protects your immune system.
I started taking Cat's Claw two years ago, when I had my last bout with pneumonia. A Holistic Pastor from California suggested it to me and even bought my first jar for me. This compound is made from the bark of the vine coming either from South or Central America. Cat's Claw they named it for the shape of the thorns on it looking like a cats clawed foot. The vine can grow up too a hundred feet and from this vine comes two different compounds from it, Uncaria tomentosa and Uncaria guianensis. The latter is for Osteoarthitis treatments.
Uncaria tomentosa has been proven to work with Cancer patients and HIV/AIDS treatments. How can I say this for you to understand. For me, when my red blood cells split and roam my body they are going to meet up with a infected red blood, This infected cell want to attack the clean red blood cell and what my Aids medications and this Cat's Claw serve as a underside protection wall so the infected cell bounces off. The absolute funny thing about these cancer and Aids drugs is that they fight and ward off cells that are in the open, but where these drugs can't fight and both diseases meet and cause most deaths now are in your lymph-nodes. Lymph-nodes are the best hiding place for both diseases and the least the doctors look for. By the time you feel the sharp pain in your groin area or under your arms it's way too late then. With Cat's Claw the Immune Modulation carries a bigger punch to the Lymph-node and now through clinical trails they suggest to the new HIV patients to use Cat's Claw with AZT (Aids Treatment Pill). With nothing being perfect in this world they are finding through clinical trails that it works in 80 percent of the cases, so the big bang theory is still going to have to wait. As a herbal treatment, Cat's Claw is used to treat intestinal ailments such as Crohn's disease, gastric ulcers and tumors, parasites, colitis, gastritis, diverticulitis and leaky bowel syndrome, the treatment and prevention of arthritis and rheumatism, diabetes, PMS, chronic fatigue syndrome, prostate conditions.
My positive case points for this Holistic Herbal pills are that they have brought my red bloods cell back from under 4.0 to 5.1 as of last blood test. Every month I saw the results getting better until this latest bout from Pneumonia. I had blood work done to either I was going to the hospital or not, my blood work was low except for my white blood cells they were hitting the roof trying to protect me from this bronchial infection.The brown chemical substance is placed into gel caps for easier and faster digestion in your stomach. It is best to take them at a meal so they absorb with your meal and slowly travel through-out the whole body. I also like that they are both a antioxidant and anti-bacterial fighting.
This Cat Claw supplement has brought back my blood to almost average levels in every aspect of a regular CBC blood test. They have also reduced the enzyme factors in my liver. Even though my liver is at Septa 3 Fibrosis/Cirrhosis my clinic doctor told me my liver is running clean and still giving the good fight. For a guy who has 5 different doctors, I get numb listening to all the medical mumbo jumbo they speak because with all the "never give up hope" speeches they give me when I'm in front of them they care..When I walk out their doors, I'm back to square one, just myself fighting this all by myself. The other reason I love this Cat's Claw that with all the improvements I've seen in my blood work, it all makes me feel better about myself. I take 2 pills in the morning with my breakfast, on the bottle it says to take one to three a day with meals so I feel I'm in the middle taking 2 in the morning.
Overall, I have seen and felt better circulation in my legs and hands. Two years ago I had about 70 percent circulation in my right arm when I started taking these pills. My two right fingers were numb most the day, but after a few weeks on this Cat's Claw I'll say I have almost all of it back. So I have seen great results from this supplement. The bottles I buy are 500 mg and 300 pills and I pay with shipping and handling $12.97 from Vitacost.com.
