Certified Organic Devil’s Claw Summary

Devil’s claw gets its distinctive name from its quite interesting appearance, which is an inner capsule part of the fruit that splits open at one end and looks like two curved horns. Devil’s claw’s roots are medicinally used after they are chopped and dried in the sun for at least 3 days. Devil’s claw is one of the most bitter of all herbs, which makes it an extremely good digestive stimulant.

The German Commission E has actually approved devil’s claw for supporting a healthy appetite and healthy digestion. Devil’s claw has also been used to rid joint pain, as well a way to support healthy joints. It can also be used to rid muscle pain and muscle tightness.
