Scientific studies by the National Cancer Institute have verified both anticancer and immune stimulating properties of Cat's Claw. Cat’s Claw, like most plants, is extremely complex in its composition and is very rich in phytochemical actives. Research has uncovered a host of chemical components that may very well explain its folkloric uses. The active constituents that appear to be the most important are a group of alkaloids called oxindole alkaloids. These oxindoles include sopteropodine, pteropodine, isomitraphylline, rhynchophylline, isorynchophylline, and mytraphylline. Four of these components have been found to have profound immunostimulating properties.
Quercetin is considered the most diffused and known nature-derived flavonol there is, showing strong effects on immunity and inflammation caused by leukocytes and other intracellular signals. Quercetin plays a role in regulating the immune system’s response to outside stressors through cell signaling pathways called kinases and phosphatases, two types of enzyme and membrane proteins needed for proper cellular function.
Mushrooms are known for their immune-modulating and anti-tumour properties. The polysaccharide fraction, mainly ?-glucans, is responsible for the immune-modulating effects. Fungal ?-glucans have been shown to activate leukocytes, which depend on structural characteristics of ?-glucans. Natural products with fungal ?-glucans have been consumed for thousands of years and they have long been considered to improve general health. ?-glucans are not synthesized by humans and they are not recognized by human immune systems as self-molecules; as a result they induce both innate and adaptive immune responses. Fungal ?-glucans are notably beneficial to humans; they markedly stimulate the human immune system and protect from pathogenic microbes and from harmful effects of environmental toxins and carcinogens that impaired immune systems.
