Cat’s Claw, in Spanish called “Uña de Gato,” is the bark of a woody vine which grows in the Peruvian Amazon rainforest. Cat’s Claw has been used medicinally by the Asháninka, Cashibo, Conibo, and Shipibo tribes of Peru for at least 2,000 years.

Through Scientific Research, Cat’s Claw has been shown
The liquid extract of Royal Cat’s Claw™ is very strong (1:1 potency). Most companies have a 1:2 (only half the strength) or even 1:4 potency.
Most Potent Species
Royal Cat’s Claw™ is formulated from a species of Cat’s Claw known as Uncaria tomentosa, which grows in the Peruvian Amazon rainforest. Another species called Uncaria guianensis, also known as Uña de Gato, is a cheaper, more abundant species to collect and does not contain all of the immune system strengthening compounds of Uncaria tomentosa. Ultimately, the only ways to be sure you are getting the best Cat’s Claw is to know the manufacturer’s reputation and identify the botanical name.
Superior Processing and Testing
The plant material is collected in Peru and manufactured in the United States. Heavy metal content is undetectable in the Royal Cat’s Claw™ liquid extract. Each batch undergoes Fingerprint analysis (IRTLC) and Gas Chromatography (potency testing). How the raw materials are processed is also key to product potency. At Whole World Botanicals, we have complete control over collection, processing, and manufacturing, and bottling. We are committed to the highest standards.
Instead of purchasing raw materials from middle-men, Whole World Botanicals does hands-on sourcing in Peru. Ingredient companies are always looking for the cheapest sources, which means their raw materials change every time they buy and the purchaser has no knowledge of where or who the raw materials come from. Not so with Whole World Botanicals – we actually know the names of our growers and collectors. We know intimately the locations where our botanicals grow and, in some cases, own the land. We do what we can to support the indigenous people and attend to their financial, educational, and health needs.
