Cat's Claw has been used in Peru and Europe since the early 1990s to help recover from diseases that target the immune system. In herbal healing today, Cat's Claw is employed around the world for many different conditions.[2]

The inner bark of Cat's Claw is used to make liquid extracts, capsules, and teas. Preparations of Cat's Claw can also be applied to the skin.[3]

Cat's Claw is indigenous to the Amazon rainforest, with its habitat being restricted primarily to the tropical areas of South and Central America.[5]

Pregnant women, organ transplant recipients, and individuals who have autoimmune conditions should avoid taking cat’s claw.[4] Individuals allergic to plants in the Rubiaceae family and different species of Uncaria may be more likely to have allergic reactions to Cat's Claw.

There are other plants which are known as Cat's Claw (or Uña de Gato) in Mexico and Latin America; however, they are entirely different plants, belonging to neither the Uncaria genus, nor to the Rubiaceae family. Some of the Mexican Uña de Gato varieties are known to have toxic properties.[5]
