Originally from South Africa, devil’s claw is a plant that grows in the wild, in the Kalahari Desert. Its fruits are woody capsules crowned with a row of sharp anchor-shaped spikes, and unlike most other plants, it can withstand the harsh climate of this inhospitable corner of the earth.
This resistance capacity is precisely what won us over, and we had no doubt from the beginning that it would have to be included in our key plant group.
The root of the devil’s claw has been widely used in popular medicine thanks to its anti-inflammatory and analgesic properties, and the German Ministry of Health has approved its effectiveness against arthritis, among other painful joint conditions.
These properties, which have traditionally been associated with it, have been scientifically demonstrated through studies on back pain and bone and joint pain in the hips and knees.
