The cat's claw (Unaria tomentosa) is a liana from the rain forests of the Peruvian Amazon and belongs to the genus of the Rötegewäcks. In the Latin American countries the plant is called "Uña de Gato" which freely translates as "cat claw" or "cat thorn". The plant is also called "cat's claw" because of the characteristic spines that resemble the shape of a cat's claw.
The liana-like plant has a long tradition as a cultivated plant among the indigenous Peruvians. They have been protecting the cat's claw for centuries because it contains antioxidants such as polyphenols and triterpenes.
