Product Description

Devils Claw Root C/S, Certified Organic 

Also Known As - Harpagophytum procumbens

Origin: Africa

Medicinal Uses - Internally,  Devils claw is used for rheumatoid arthritis, osteoarthritis, bone cancer, neuralgia and ailments of the pancreas and gall bladder. Some people find it effective for low back pain and digestive issues like loss of appetite, constipation, diarrhea and flatulence. Some women find it works well to ease the pain of childbirth and the resulting afterpains. Traditionally, the herb has been taken to remedy allergies, thin the blood, to reduce inflammation, as an antioxidant and to relieve arteriosclerosis. It has also been prescribed for diseases of the blood, coronary artery disease, diabetes, menstrual problems, swelling, fever, fibromyalgia, menopausal symptoms, migraines, as a sedative and pain reliever, tendonitis and for urinary tract infections. Externally, Devils claw can be applied topically to arthritic joints, sores, skin ulcers and boils. Historically, it has been chosen to help heal wounds, skin injuries and skin cancer.

Parts Used - The roots are harvested, sliced and dried to use medicinally.

Precautions - If you have ulcers in the digestive system, do not take this herb. Devils claw should not be combined with blood thinning drugs like warfarin. This can increase your risk of bleeding. Likewise this herb should not be combined with drugs to treat hyperglycemia and diabetes like metformin. Avoid taking this herb if you take medications to control heart rhythm. It may also interact with other herbs that affect these same problems. Devil's claw is not recommended during pregnancy since it causes contractions of the uterus.
