Increase Immunity With Cat’s Claw Supplements
Cat’s claw contributes to DNA repair and immune function. WBC (white blood cell) count was found to be significantly elevated in a human study when given 440mg of cat’s claw extract daily. WBC are responsible for fighting off infection and disease by attacking bacteria, viruses and germs. A low WBC count can help to detect unknown infections and undiagnosed medical conditions. Cat’s claw enhances the immune system by increasing the levels of key immune cells (T helper and B cells) and the activity of granulocytes
Enhancing the immune system can increase the symptoms of autoimmune disorders
Cat’s Claw is used in China and Korea as an antipyretic (fever reducer), anticonvulsant and antihypertensive (lower BP) given its properties for helping the immune system, however Cat’s Claw May Worsen Autoimmune Diseases because it enhances the immune response by increasing the activities of immune cells
