herbs_skinmiteCats' Claw Tincture

cats_claw$10.67 for 1 oz.

This is the number one topical treatment for this fungus condition.
Herb Pharm is the ONLY brand that works because it is not just Cat's Claw but is combined with some form of Hydrochloric Acid which no other brands have. The combination is what makes it work. Do not waste time or money on any other brand.  Try local health food stores but if they do not carry this brand then buy it cheap on 

Herb Pharm Cat's Claw Extract


$38.30 for 4 oz.

This is where to buy the larger 4 oz bottle. 

Here is a description from the makers of this product explaining the care that goes into obtaining the quality which is critical for results.  

We prepare our Cat's Claw Extract from the inner bark of Uncaria tomentosa vines which are Custom Wildcrafted by the Asháninka Indians in their native wild habitat in the Amazonian highlands of Peru. To assure optimal extraction of Cat's Claw's bioactive compounds, we use only the inner bark which is hand-harvested, carefully sun-dried and cleaned of outer bark, and is then shipped directly to our laboratory for thorough extraction. Our Cat's Claw is never fumigated or irradiated.

Buy cheap from


samentoIf you want to take Cat's Claw internally you can use this or the above brand. The Samento does not work topically though so for skin treatment only buy the above brand.

From deep within the rainforest and refined by scientific knowledge, comes Samento. Samento is a proprietary extract of Uncaria tomentosa, also known as Cat’s Claw, in an easy-to-take, full-spectrum liquid extract. It’s the pentacyclic (POA) form of Cat’s Claw that has been shown to support immune function, and Samento delivers these pentacyclic constituents, certified free of TOA (tetracyclic oxindole alkaloids).*

What's more, Samento Extract contains a number of quinovic acid glycosides, which can have a direct immune supportive effect. Samento also contains a variety of triterpenes and polyphenols, which demonstrate powerful immune modulating and blood sugar-balancing abilities.

Last but not least, liquid Samento Extract has been proven to be an effective inflammation balancer in a number of studies. Research shows that it can protect cells against oxidative stress and block the activation of NFkappaB and TNF-alpha without damaging your intestinal lining. Cheapest place I found to purchase is linked here $35.50.  Buy on Amazon (from manufacturer it is $47)

Do not take Samento Extract if you are taking immunosuppressive drugs or if you are about to undergo an organ or bone marrow transplant. If you have an autoimmune condition or low blood pressure, hypoglycemia or other medical condition, or if you are pregnant or nursing, consult your health care professional before using Samento Extract.
