Devil's claw (Harpagophytum procumbens) is a plant that grows in southern Africa. It gets its name from the tiny hooks that cover its fruit. Devil's claw has been used in the past to treat pain, problems with the liver and kidneys, fever, and malaria. It has also been used to treat wounds, boils, and other skin problems with ointments.
Devil's claw was brought to Europe in the early 1900s. The dried roots have been used to improve hunger, ease heartburn, and reduce pain and inflammation.
Today, a lot of people in Germany and France use devil's claw to treat inflammation or pain from arthritis, headaches, and low back pain. Studies on animals and in test tubes show that devil's claw might help fight inflammation.
Because it contains iridoid glycosides, notably the compound harpagoside, devil's claw has garnered interest as a possible treatment for inflammatory diseases. Harpagoside has been shown to reduce inflammation in animal and cell culture tests.
◉ May Improve Osteoarthritis:- Recent studies have shown that devil's claw may be just as efficient as the painkiller diacerein in alleviating the aches and discomfort of osteoarthritic joints.
◉ May Ease Symptoms of Gout:- Some preliminary evidence suggests that devil's claw may help lower uric acid levels and alleviate gout pain by acting as an anti-inflammatory.
◉ May Relieve Back Pain:- Potential exists for devil's claw as a pain reliever, especially for lumbar discomfort. This is due, according to the studies, to the harpagoside found in devil's claw. However, further studies are required to verify these results.
◉ May Promote Weight Loss:- The hormone ghrelin stimulates hunger and sends a signal to the brain that it's time to eat; devil's claw may block this process. However, there is no data available from studies involving humans.
