Apparently, the bark extract from a plant called una de gato (or cat's claw) has anti-inflammatory properties... And I've seen a couple of studies that confirms that it does have anti-inflammatory properties... In the area where cat's claw is found, the indigenous people there use it as medicine to help with digestive disorders and arthritis...
 
It sounds interesting... Just wondering if anyone has heard of it or tried it... and how it works for them...
 
I'm doing good right now Crohn's-wise... but it's always good to know for future reference...
I think I am being picked on by life, sometimes. But's that okay. Life and I are good buddies... I know life doesn't mean no harm. It just is the way it is. I can accept that.

I tried it sometime in the 90's. I didn't feel any different on it, but it could have been a poor brand or something.
