It has in recent decades become one of the best selling herbs in the USA. Not since quinine was discovered in the bark of a Peruvian tree during the seventeenth century had any other rainforest plant ever prompted global attention.
Lots of attention has been given to the oxindole alkaloids found in the bark and roots of Cats Claw.
Tastes great in tea especially with herbs like Pau d’arco and Chuchuhuas. Also such teas go well blended with raw chocolate and other super foods.
Use approximately 2 tablespoons per serving and brew as a tea for 5-10 minutes.
