It can reach to a height of 30m. Known to botany as Uncaria Tomentosa it is most prevalent in Peru, where it has been used as a tea for centuries.
Cat’s Claw has been known and studied in Europe since the 1960’s, and a large amount of research and analysis has been carried out. In 1994 the world health organisation sponsored the first International conference on Cat’s Claw in Geneva, and the special status for the plant in the field of ethnobotany was recognised. Material for further study is available on the Internet for those interested in a deeper understanding of Cat’s Claw use2.25Baldwins 1970-01-01
