Nutramedix Samento TOA-Free Cat's Claw
- Helps to maintain flexible joints
- Contributes to the immune system
- TOA-free and sustainably harvested
Samento is the trademark for a special variety of the Peruvian herb Cat's Claw (Uncaria tomentosa). Cat’s claw is a climbing vine, native to the Amazon rainforest. It has been used for over two thousand years by many rainforest tribes to support the immune system.
The Asháninka people, who have the longest recorded history of use of the herb, make a clear distinction between certain Uncaria tomentosa vines. The action of one of the main group of actives in Cat's Claw - the Pentacyclic Oxindole Alkaloids (POAs) - can be adversely affected by the presence of a further group - the Tetracyclic Oxindole Alkaloids (TOAs). Samento is only made with TOA-free plants.
Please note - the bark used in the preparation of Samento capsules is harvested in a sustainable way.
Must be taken on an empty stomach. Start with one drop twice daily, 30 minutes before meals, increasing slowly up to 20 drops 2-3 times a day. Wait one minute after adding to water before drinking.
Should not be used with immune-suppressant medication, or by those who have had transplant surgery such as bone marrow or skin grafts.
Should be avoided by pregnant women or those trying to fall pregnant, and cannot be used if pregnant or breastfeeding.
Samento can be taken in conjunction with some other medications but not simultaneously. It is best to take 30 minutes before meals and additional supplements/pharmaceuticals after meals. Check with your Health Practitioner.
