History and background
As you may have guessed thanks to its numerous nicknames, devil’s claw is a popular and widely used herbal remedy – not only for humans, but for animals too. Native to South Africa, the plant is so-called because of its fruit, which are covered in small ‘hooks.’
It didn’t reach Europe until the early 20th century, but word of its potential health benefits soon spread. French and German herbal practitioners in particular adopted devil’s claw, using it to treat a wide variety of aches and pains.
Despite lacking any perceptible odour, devil’s claw has a sharp, bitter taste.
How to use devil’s claw root
Devil’s claw started out as a traditional South African herbal remedy, mainly used for rheumatic conditions. Today, its benefits are much more widely understood, and the plant is used extensively to treat ailments in both humans and animals.
In humans, devil’s claw has been used to treat a variety of aches and pains, including back and neck pains, osteoarthritis and more. Studies have shown the extent of its anti-inflammatory effect. In one particular study, devil’s claw proved equally as effective as non-herbal medication at relieving pain caused by osteoarthritis.Contact Us
