Cat's claw, commonly known as Una de Gato, is a large vine that gets its name from the hooked thorns that look similar to the claws of a cat. These vines can grow upwards of 100 feet in length and are native to the Amazon Rainforest and other tropical areas of Central and South America . It had been used traditionally by several Peruvian tribes and the Inca civilization, dating as far back as 2,000 years ago. Modern studies of Cat’s Claw began in the early 1970’s and it has rapidly grown in popularity from the 1990’s through today .
