Our ultra-pure cat's claw tincture is made from the finely ground bark of Uncaria tomentosa. We source the bark from an indigenous terroir in the Peruvian rainforest, where non-GMO cat's claw is sustainably cultivated without pesticides. Careful processing takes place directly after harvest in order to preserve the highest quantity of valuable ingredients.
Invariably, the extraction agents alcohol or glycerine (glycerol) are used for the production of tinctures. We have chosen to use an alcohol extraction, as extractions using vegetable glycerin produce tinctures which are unsuitable for individuals with diabetes and can cause flatulence. Additionally, these tinctures vary in quality, and often use low-grade glycerine from monocultures, genetically modified plants or from biodiesel production, as it is a by-product of the industry.
The food grade ethanol used for the extraction process is produced from non-GMO, pesticide-free beetroot molasses. Unlike conventional tinctures, which contain up to 70% ABV, our tincture is produced exclusively for us with an alcohol content of only 45% ABV.
The tincture is produced by a family business located in the heart of Italy which has operated for generations. The manufacturer attaches great importance to the use of high-quality raw materials and gentle processing methods.
We use environmentally-friendly amber glass jars for the packaging of this product.
