Devil’s Claw is one of the best traditional herbal remedies for rheumatism
USES: Anti-inflammatory, Arthritis, Rheumatism, Autoimmune disorders, Allergies.
Devil’s Claw, also known as Harpagophytum is a traditional remedy for general joint pain.
HOW IT WORKS: Devil’s Claw contains a group of components known as Iridoids which possess anti-inflammatory, anti-rheumatic and pain killing properties. The anti-inflammatory action has been shown to be equivalent to that of Steroids, but the plant itself does not seem to contain this group of compounds.
Recent research has shown that the plant has an action in balancing the immune system, reducing the tendency for allergies and autoimmunity (where the body’s immune system attacks normal healthy body cells).
