Vilcacora is commonly known in traditional Peruvian medicine. Heals from digestive ailments, arthritis, wounds, and even cancer. Today, it’s one of the most popular herbs sold in the USA.
Vilcacory's research began in 1970 and has so far been carried out by scientists from Peru, Germany, Austria and England. The most attention is given to oxoindole alkaloids, which can be found in the bark and roots of Vilcacora (Cats Claw), which excite the immune system.
The most active immunologically alkaloid is Isomer A (Isopteropodin), which increases immunity in the body and acts as an antioxidant, removing free radicals. Compounds in Vilcacor can also kill viruses, bacteria, viruses and other microorganisms that cause illness. And also stop cancerous tumor cells. It’s suggested that the Vilcacora extract has a direct effect on the anti-proliferative activity in MCF-7 (breast cancer cell line).
