Benefits of the uncaria tomentosa

Uncaria tomentosa is a grape commonly known as Una de Gato and is traditionally used in Peruvian medicine to treat a wide range of health problems, especially digestive disorders and arthritis, and to treat wounds, stomach problems, cancer and more.

It has recently attracted the attention of Western herbalists and researchers.

Today, mostly by word of mouth, it has become one of the best-selling herbs in the United States.

Since the 1970s, studies and research have been conducted by scientists in Peru, Germany, Austria, England and other countries, to learn more about the powerful healing properties of the uncaria tomentosa.

Today, mostly by word of mouth, it has become one of the best-selling herbs in the United States.

Not since quinine was discovered in the bark of a Peruvian tree during the seventeenth century, has no other rainforest plant ever attracted worldwide attention.

Most attention has been given to the oxindole alkaloids present in the bark and roots of the uncaria tomentosa, which have been documented to stimulate the immune system.

It is these seven different alkaloids that are credited with a variety of different medicinal and healing properties.

The most immunologically active alkaloid is believed to be Isopteropodin (Isomer A), which increases the immune response in the body and acts as an antioxidant to rid the body of free radicals.

The compounds found in the uncaria tomentosa may also work to kill viruses, bacteria, and other disease-causing microorganisms and work to inhibit healthy cells from becoming cancerous.

It has been suggested that uncaria extracts exert a direct anti-proliferative activity on MCF7 (a breast cancer cell line).

This has led to its use as an add-on treatment for cancer and AIDS, as well as other diseases that negatively impact the immune system.

In addition, the presence of glycosides, proanthocyanidins and beta sitosterol help provide anti-viral and anti-inflammatory support for the body.

These alkaloids also exert a beneficial effect on memory.

Uncaria is considered to be an extraordinarily potent inhibitor of TNF-alpha production.

The anti-inflammatory properties of this herb can help relieve arthritis, gout, and other inflammatory problems.

The main mechanism for the anti-inflammatory actions of the uncaria appears to be immunomodulation via suppression of TNF-alpha synthesis.

Uncaria tomentosa can help create support for the body's intestinal and immune systems, and it can also create intestinal support with its ability to cleanse the entire intestinal tract.

This cleansing helps create support for people suffering from various stomach and bowel ailments, including: colitis, Crohn's disease, irritable bowel syndrome, and leaky bowel syndrome.

In addition, in one study, human volunteers who took the unicaria for 8 weeks showed better DNA repair.

Uncaria tomentosa can often be found in combination with other "immune" herbs with similar healing properties such as echinacea and can:

 reduce the pain and inflammation of rheumatism, arthritis and other types of inflammatory problems.

 they have anti-tumor and anti-cancer properties that inhibit the formation of cancer cells.

 promote wound healing.

 be useful for the treatment of gastric ulcers and intestinal disorders

 helps relieve chronic pain.

 improve immunity by stimulating the immune system.

 helping people who have stomach and bowel problems, including colitis, Crohn's disease, irritable bowel syndrome, leaky bowel syndrome, gastritis and duodenal ulcers, intestinal inflammation.
