Rio Amazon Cat's Claw Tea

Helps to maintain flexible joints

Contributes to a healthy immune system

The tea has a pleasant, warming taste

Cat’s Claw or ‘Uña de gato’ is a climbing vine that is native to the Peruvian Amazon and gains its name from the barbed ‘claws’ with which it climbs the jungle canopy.

Cat’s Claw has been used by rainforest tribes to contribute to the immune system and helps to maintain flexible joints, and it is still well known for these benefits today.

There are many actives in Cat's Claw - including alkaloids thought to contribute to the immune system, and a group of chemicals called quinovic acid glycosides. Other actives are carboxyl alkyl esters, sterols (beta-sitosterol, stigmasterol and campesterol) and antioxidants.

Cat’s Claw is a bitter herb, which is why Rio Trading Cat’s Claw tea bags contain added Cinnamon, Ginger, Cardamon and Orange peel, giving the tea a pleasant, warming taste. The loose tea contains no additives, but spices can be added.

Rio Trading use only well-identified botanical material from sustainable sources.
