Description

Devil's Claw Root Powder is an anti-inflammatory, analgesic and antioxidant that is used in horses. Devil's Claw Root Powder does not contain sugar so it is great choice for Insulin Resistant horses. Devil’s Claw has been widely used in human herbal medicine to treat both acute and chronic inflammation.

According to Andrea Baldwin of Holistichorse.com, "This plant is researched and used for osteoarthritis, bursitis, rheumatic pain, headaches, diabetes and to improve digestion. In horses it is useful when inflammation or pain is present due to arthritis or muscle pain. It can be useful as a tonic for older horses, and for horses who have suffered tendon or ligament damage in the past.

As with most herbs, Devil’s Claw works best when combined with other herbs such as Turmeric or Sarsaparilla.

Devil’s Claw has high concentrations of a chemical compound called harpogoside, which reduces inflammation in the joints. Other active constituents have analgesic properties. It also contains polyphenols and flavonoids, which are antioxidants.

At recommended dosages this herb has relatively little side effects. It is a bitter herb so it can increase gastric secretions and would not be suitable if gastric ulcers are suspected. There is some debate about this herb being safe for pregnancy so ask a qualified herbalist about your particular situation."
