Akua Life upped the game again in this category by getting 10 to 1 extract to make it more potent
The following is quoted from NootropicExpert.com with written authorization.
Cat’s Claw is a member of the plant family Rubiaceae, genus Uncariathat consists of at least 34 different species found in tropical forests of Southeast Asia, Africa, Central and South America.
When choosing a Cat’s Claw nootropic supplement, you need to know that at least 12 different and unrelated herbs have been marketed as Uña de Gato or Cat’s Claw.
The two South American species are Uncaria guanensis, a lower altitude shrub, and Uncaria tomentosa, a higher altitude woody vine found particularly in Peru.
The root and inner bark of the stalk of Uncaria tomentosa contains 30 known constituents including at least 17 alkaloids, along with a number of other compounds.
Researchers first thought it was the oxindole alkaloids that provided Cat’s Claw health benefits. More recently, a water soluble extract called C-Med-100® (AC-11®) was shown to possess strong antioxidant and anti-inflammatory effects.
When selecting a Cat’s Claw supplement for nootropic use, read the labels carefully. And choose only Uncaria tomentosa. We’ll have more about selecting the right supplement later in this post.
