Cats Claw- Today, this botanical is promoted as a dietary supplement for a variety of health conditions, including viral infections (such as herpes, human papilloma virus, and HIV), Alzheimer’s disease, cancer, arthritis, diverticulitis, peptic ulcers, colitis, gastritis, hemorrhoids, parasites, and leaky bowel syndrome. It is a tropical vine used for centuries as a traditional medicine. Today, it’s commonly consumed as a supplement due to its alleged health benefits. This botanical, also known by its Spanish name Uña de Gato, is sometimes referred to as the “life-giving vine of Peru.” Its name is derived from the hook-like thorns that resemble the claws of a feline. It should not be confused with cat’s claw acacia, which contains a potentially poisonous cyanide compound. This product can also slow blood clotting, leading to easy bruising and bleeding (particularly in people on anticoagulants). Because of this, you should stop taking cat’s claw at least two weeks before surgery to avoid excessive bleeding.
