Potent tincture derived from dried, wild harvested Harpagphytum procumbens root
Devil’s Claw Root – Liquid Extract from Blessed Herbs is made from high-quality Harpagphytum procumbens roots, a low-growing plant native to South Africa whose unique and somewhat perturbing name stems from the red, claw-shaped appearance of its fruit. The large, tuberous roots of the Devil’s Claw plant have been used for medicinal purposes by both South African native peoples as well as European settlers, who brought Devil’s Claw back to Europe where it was utilized as a treatment for arthritis. The anti-inflammatory effects associated with Devil’s Claw are thought to stem from several plant sterols in conjunction with a compound called Harpagoside. Devil’s Claw may promote relief from symptoms of rheumatoid arthritis and joint pain over time, as well as encourage liver and gall bladder functions. Devil’s Claw may also improve digestion overall, however because it can stimulate stomach acid production, care should be taken by those with pre-existing stomach conditions.
Devil’s Claw – Devil’s Claw (Harpagphytum procumbens) derives its name from its red, claw-like fruit and its anti-inflammatory potential from an iridoid glycoside called Harpagoside. Devil’s Claw root may promote arthritis and joint pain relief when taken over time and can promote liver, gall bladder and digestive health – although care with the later should be taken as Devil’s Claw can encourage stomach acid production as well.
