Uncaria tomentosa is a woody vine known for its unique thorn structure, which enables it to climb trees and reach impressive heights exceeding 100 feet. This plant is naturally found in tropical regions of Central and South America and holds a significant role in the traditional healing practices of indigenous communities that span back thousands of years. The bark of this vine, commonly referred to as cat's claw, is utilized in various forms such as extractions, infusions, or decoctions to create cat's claw tea.

 

Cat's claw, also known as "una de gato" in Spanish, encompasses a diverse group of approximately 20 plants distinguished by their sharp and curved thorns. These plants are native to the lush tropical rainforests of South and Central America, with a majority of commercial production centered around a specific species called Uncaria tomentosa. The ethical harvesting of cat's claw bark serves as a significant source of income for numerous villages in Brazil and Peru, contributing to their economic sustenance. It's worth noting that this plant belongs to the Rubiaceae family.
