I was drinking una de gato (cats claw) every day when I was in Peru recently. It was given as a tea as part of a special diet which I was on whilst participating in sacred Ayahuasca ceremonies.
While in Peru doing this my overall health felt amazing. I also experienced significant improvement in my breathing and my digestion. I have an auto-immune condition called sarcoidosis which causes inflammation in my airways with chest pains and shortness of breath.
I felt the cats claw might have something to do with this improvement, so ordered some from Happy Herb shop. I've been drinking the tea daily for around 4 weeks and have noticed a marked improvement in digestion. Previously I would quite often go 2 days (sometimes 3) without needing a 'Number 2'. This cats claw has me going at least once, sometimes twice a day. This feels a lot more normal, and there's a sense it has flushed my digestive system.
My levels of airway inflammation also seem to be reduced as my breathing has been very good since starting the tea.
I have 1 or 2 cups a day. It's very easy to make and I really like the taste. The bark/root shavings of the cats claw just sit at the bottom of your mug, so no need to filter or strain it. Just add boiling water to a large pinch of the cats claw, allow to sit for 5-10 mins and drink.
I 100% recommend this. From what I've read this cats claw is reported to have a ton of other medical benefits, so who knows what other positive effects I'm getting! I will drink this for the rest of my life now. :o)
