Benefits of Devil’s Claw
or Harpagophytum Procumbens

Several years ago, a brochure (Alive Books) was published on devil’s claw, summing up the curative effects of this renowned plant.

In 1958, Dr Zorn conducted a very promising first experiment at the University of Jena in Germany. The ensuing study yielded excellent results concerning its anti-inflammatory and antiarthritic properties on 5 out of 350 patients. He was amongst the first to experiment on devil’s claw to determine its effects on arthritis problems. He observed that after 5 weeks of treatment, swelling was reduced and joints were more flexible. 

In 1974, another study (Leuschner, 1974) showed that devil’s claw roots seemed to be able to eliminate any excess water from the body, as well as toxins. Instead of showing side effects, the roots bring about an overall sense of well-being, all the while stimulating appetite and RELIEVING THE SYMPTOMS OF ARTHRITIS.

Another scientist, Dr Sigmund Schmidt, emphasizes the plant's relevance due to its detoxifying properties and its ability to help protect the body. He even came to the conclusion that even once the treatment has ceased, the healing process doesn't stop and that the inflammation does not reappear. He also notes that, in some cases, herbal tea containing devil's claw will help some people with liver or kidney related symptoms (detoxifying properties and stimulation of protective mechanisms).

Depurative properties of Devil's Claw

  1. Diuretic action provoking dehydration in the inflammation and in the swelling of the tissue. Normalization of collagenosis, IMPROVED MOBILITY AND PAIN RELIEF can then be observed. Its diuretic action is good for the heart.
  2. Devil’s claw acts on chronic inflammations affecting the urinary tract, mucous membranes, digestive tract (especially the stomach), liver and gallbladder.

Devil’s claw is recommended for various afflictions. The most common remains arthritis, in cases of osteoarthritis, of gout, or even of allergies in some cases (hay fever, etc.), which is no surprise considering its detoxifying mechanism and diuretic properties.

The exceptional properties of the root have long been acknowledged. Many people are enjoying the improvement of their joints after taking devil's claw for a few months.
