Devil’s Claw can Help Ease Your Pain
We begin our study of nutraceutical extract by looking at one of the chief component of A&R, known as Devil’s claw. Let us get a good understandind of this extract to appreciate the supplement.
A plant native to the Kalahari desert in southern Africa, devil’s claw (Harpagophytum procumbens) was named for its long, tuberous roots that resemble claws. It has been used in traditional African medicine for centuries for concerns such as pain, arthritis, indigestion, and skin conditions.
Why Do People Use Devil’s Claw?
Devil’s claw contains harpagosides, part of a class of compounds known as iridoid glycosides. Harpagosides have been shown to possess anti-inflammatory properties. Since inflammation is linked to some forms of pain, some people use devil’s claw to decrease pain from the following conditions:
• Back pain
• Joint pain (such as knee pain)
• Rheumatoid arthritis
It has also been used for fibromyalgia, sciatica, nerve pain, gout, and for symptoms of lyme disease.

Health Benefits of Devil’s Claw
Although clinical trials on the use of devil’s claw for osteoarthritis is limited, several small studies indicate that the herb may be helpful. For example, a study published in the journal Joint Bone Spine in 2000 compared six 435 mg capsules of powdered devil’s claw extract a day (which provides about 60 mg per day of harpagosides) with 100 mg a day of a European osteoarthritis drug called diacerhein in 122 patients with osteoarthritis of the knee or hip.
After four months, devil’s claw was as effective as diacerhein at relieving pain, improving mobility, and reducing the need for back-up medication (such as anti-inflammatory and analgesic drugs).
A review published in the Cochrane Database of Systematic Reviews in 2014 examined previously published trials on the use of herbs for non-specific low back pain.For this report, researchers concluded that devil’s claw (standardized to 50 mg or 100 mg harpagosides) seem to reduce pain better than a placebo and may reduce the use of medication. The researchers noted, however, that the evidence was of moderate quality at best.
Keeping chronic pain under control is an ongoing challenge. If you live with pain, you may be searching for solutions and have heard about devil’s claw.
