Description: Organic harpagophytum
Harpagophytum or devil's claw (Harpagophytum procumbens DC, Pedaliaceae family) is native to southern Africa. The plant is perennial and has a large network of tuberous roots that can extend as deep as 1 m1. It is traditionally used for the good function of joints2, in addition to contributing to support the digestion3 and appetite4.
Harpagophytum root helps to maintain joint health2 and good mobility6, in addition to help to maintain flexible joints and tendons6. There are scientific publications, such as the systematic review conducted by Chrubasik et al., in which it can be observed that the majority of studies carried out on harpagophytum appear to indicate that the root has anti-inflammatory and analgesic action for use in cases of acute and subacute inflammation7, 8.
This research has led to studies of the composition of harpagophytum root in which multiple compounds have been identified, such as harpagosides, flavonoids, phytosterols and phenolic acids5. Other studies conducted suggest that the anti-inflammatory action of the harpagophytum may be owed to interactions among these compounds in the plant9.
Anastore offers an ecological extract which guarantees the absence of pesticides, formulated using only harpagophytum root, yielding a minimum content of 2.7% harpagoside. Each batch of harpagophytum extract is analyzed using HPLC (High Performance Liquid Chromatography), offering the strictest guarantee of quality possible.
