Ingredients:
Cat's Claw *
Recipe Instructions: Tincture :

The healing alkaloids in cat's claw tinctures are released from tannins by the action of acid in the stomach. If they are absorbed through the tongue, they lose their effect. For this reason, you should always take cat's claw tincture with at least 6 ounces (3/4 cup) of water to avoid absorption through the tongue. You can add 1 tablespoon of lemon juice or 1 teaspoon of vinegar to the water to increase the acidity of the solution. When brewing Cat's claw as a tea, add lemon.
