Does Cats Claw Fight Cancer?

Cats Claw - Una da Gato, Echinacea and Astagalus

by: Kathy Deane

The ingredients in NSP Cats Claw Combination are Cats Claw, Astragalus, and Echinacea making it a powerful combination that supports the immune system, cleanses the digestive tract and supports joint strength and promotes the functions of white blood cells and macro-phages.

Cats Claw known as Uña de Gato is grown in the rainforests of South America. The cats claw - uña de gato vine contains six alkaloids that have been isolated by scientists. Research suggests that four of these found in Cats Claw promote the functions of white blood cells and macro-phages.

NSP Cats Claw not only contains the Uncaria tomentosa but is combined with Astragalus and Echinacea to make it a product of highest standards.   Astragalus also known as Huang ch'i, may help fight cancer by stimulating the immune system.  Researchers at the University of Texas Medical Center mixed Astragalus with the blood of cancer patients in a test tube and found that the function of cancer-killing cells called T lymphocytes improved by 260 percent.  And Astragalus is said to help enhance the body’s production of immunoglobulin and stimulates macro-phages.  In addition Astragalus  supports the production of stem cells in bone marrow and lymph tissue and encourages their development into active immune cells.  Echinacea purpurea is also found in the NSP Combination making it one powerhouse combination working synergistically together.

Let’s take a closer in-depth look at Cats Claw.  Cat’s Claw - Uña de Gato is known to fight inflammation. Scientific studies tell us that inflammation is said to be one of the main causes of disease.  The Ashaninka tribe of Peru have known this for 2000 years. They did not have scientific studies but ‘Success Stories’ that confirmed its healing qualities including reducing inflammation. In fact the Asháninka tribe of Peru hold the longest recorded history of using this herb. They use Cat's Claw to treat not just inflammations but also to treat asthma, for arthritis, rheumatism, inflammations of the urinary tract; to recover from childbirth; as a kidney cleanser; to cure deep wounds, and bone pain.  They even record that Cats Claw is used for gastric ulcers; for cancer; and to support cellular health.

Cat’s claw became popular by the German natural scientist Arturo Brell. In 1926 Asturi Brell migrated from Munich to Pozuzo, a small town founded by German colonists in the Peruvian rainforest. This is where Dr. Brell learned to use Cat’s Claw to treat his rheumatic pain. He later treated Luis Schuler another German colonist, who had been diagnosed with terminal lung cancer. One year later Luis Schuler was apparently free of cancer.  Research studies have shown the herb to be very powerful with not just cancer but with AIDS and in decreasing the size of some tumours. Research now even indicates that Cat´s Claw may reduce the damaging side effects from radiotherapy and chemotherapy, as it seems to offer protection to healthy cells and enhances the attacking and removal of cancer cells and studies show that Cat’s Claw exerts anticancer effects against several cancer cell lines.

There are more than 30 plants that go by the name Cat's Claw, and some that are not Uncaria tomentosa end up in herbal remedies. They can cause gastric bleeding and other side effects, and won't deliver the mild benefits patients are seeking. Be sure you know the company you are buying from, their quality control standard and that it is the Uncaria tomentosa herb.

I am proud to be a part of a company with the highest standard of'Quality Contro'l. This is where I get my Cats Claw Combination from and ‘Success Stories’ continue to grow and add to the Ashaninka tribe of Peru ‘Success Stories’.
