In a study of Cat’s Claw, no adverse toxicological effects were noted even when rodents received 120,000 times the equivalent human dose.

What it Does/How it Works:

Similar to garlic, Cat’s Claw was culturally endowed with talismanic virtues of repelling evil spirits.

Today we know Samento to be a very broad spectrum antimicrobial.  Most well-known for treating Lyme disease ii, it is also used as an antifungal, antiviral, antibacterial, as well against parasitic infections.

In 2004 the Ecuadorian government allowed 3 drug claims for Samento. These were as an antimicrobial, as an immune system modulator, and as an anti-inflammatory.

Pentacyclic oxindole alkaloids (POAs) and tetracyclic oxindole alkaloids (TOAs) are both found in Cat’s Claw. Pentacyclic oxindole alkaloids (POAs) have profound immune modulating properties. (TOAs), however, inhibit the effectiveness of the POAs, and disrupt the nervous system. Tetracyclic oxindole alkaloids Samento does not contain the TOAs that are found in regular Cat’s Claw, making it more effective.

At Alchemist Lab we prescribe Samento for any Lyme infection accompanied by joint pain. We also prescribe Samento for rheumatic complaints as well as lupus.
