Description - Research and Analysis

Name

Harpagophytum procumbens DC. (Pedaliaceae), commonly called Devil's Claw; in German, Sudafrikanische Teufelskrallenwurzel.

Source

Devil's claw comes from a plant native to the Kalahari and Namibian deserts. Its roots are said to resemble a claw. The active ingredients are found in the roots and tubers, with nearly twice as much active ingredient, harpagoside, in the secondary tubers as in the primary. Commercial producers buy dried slices of the tubers which are then converted to powder form or extracted.

History

Traditional herbalists have used devil's claw to help support everything from upset stomach to boils. At the turn of the century, German physicians began using devil's claw to help support symptoms of joint pain.

Traditional Support Uses

Devil's claw can be used as an anti-inflammatory, analgesic, and to help stimulate appetite and digestion.

Commission E Recommendations

Devil's claw can be used to help support dyspepsia (upset stomach), loss of appetite, and degenerative disorders of the locomotor system.

Possible Effects

Extracts injected into animals fight the swelling induced by trauma. They also appear to help support the pain induced by experimental injuries. The component thought to be responsible is called Harpagoside (members of the general class of Iridoid glycosides). The problem here is that Harpagoside both stimulates the release of, and is destroyed by, stomach acid. The highly variable rate of absorption may explain why clinical researchers have reported conflicting results. Some researchers have found that patients with joint pain find support; others have found that use of the herb produced no measurable benefits.

Dosage

Commission E recommends a dose of 1.5 grams per day to help stimulate appetite, and 4.5 grams per day for muscle sprains and upset stomach. Since it appears that most of the herb will be destroyed in the stomach, enteric coated formulations might be preferable. Barring that, taking the product with an antacid would also be a good idea.

Directions

Stir 1/4 of a teaspoon into a glass of water and consume 3 times daily, with meals.
 

Cautions

Do not use if suffering from gastrointestinal ulcers.

Consult a physician before use if you do suffer from gallstones.

Concerns

The evidence suggests that devil's claw stimulates acid secretion, and patients being treated for ulcer disease might find themselves feeling even worse. Also, there is some evidence that devil's claw works by altering the same enzyme systems that are effected by NSAIDs (nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs) such as AdvilTM (ibuprofen). Someone already taking an NSAID should probably not take devil's claw at the same time.

Warnings

Significant toxic side effects have never been reported, and devil's claw is not known to interact with any other medications.

Drug Testing

There are no reports of devil's claw products interfering with routine workplace urine drug screening tests.
