Devils Claw

Devil's claw (Harpagophytum procumbens) is a traditional southern African herb used to treat pain and upset stomachs. Its name comes from its clawlike fruit, which resemble the feet of birds. Ten clinical studies conducted between 1982 and 2000 have found that devil's claw can benefit people with rheumatoid arthritis, low back pain, and various other rheumatic complaints.

In the June 2000 issue of Phytomedicine, French researchers reported using devil's claw to successfully treat ninety-two people with os-teoarthritis. The subjects were given either 435 mg of powdered devil's claw or conventional drug treatment daily. By the end of the four-month studies, people taking devil's claw had significantly less pain and greater mobility. They were also relying on fewer anti-inflammatory drugs and painkillers. Similar results were noted in a broader study, which included 122 patients with either hip or knee osteoarthritis or both.
