The Amazon Rainforest is home to an estimated 10 percent of all of the Earth’s species, and it’s also home to a vast array of rainforest herbs that are studied extensively by medical and drug companies for their health and life-giving properties.
Consider the health benefits of the rainforest herb Una de Gato, aka Cat’s Claw, which has long been taken by native tribes for its anti-inflammatory, anti-viral, anti-bacterial and anti-cancer effects.
The herb is especially useful for people who smoke according to one study from the University of Milan in Italy,which found that the blood of smokers was essentially returned to normal (cleansed of mutagenic cancer-causing substances) after just two weeks of using Una de Gato.
The health benefits of Una de Gato are almost too many to count, but it’s safe to say that the secret is out among the native South American people who use it quite often for many, many ailments.
Some of the uses for this herb include:
-Immune system support; even may show promise against autoimmune disease (check with a doctor first, this article is for informational purposes only)
-Strong anti-viral and anti-microbial effects, much like many other Amazon Rainforest herbs
-Support for the digestive system, making it potentially strong against many modern digestive disorders including IBS, Crohn’s and others
-Possible anti-cancer effects
Una de Gato has a unique appearance as well, and shows all the signs of being a strong, thriving plant. It is actually an extremely long vine that climbs up and wraps around the Amazon Rainforest foliage, and has a small “claw” on the bottom of it that is useful for aiding this purpose.
Considering the incredibly strong profile of biodiversity in the Rainforest and all of the fighting for survival against invaders these plants must do each day, it’s no surprise that these plants like Una de Gato are some of the most widely studied and used natural medicines in the world.
And it’s especially useful for smokers and anyone else who wants to achieve better health through nature.
