      The structural bioinformatics approaches led to identification of three bioactive compounds of Uncaria tomentosa (speciophylline, cadambine, and proanthocyanidin B2) with potential therapeutic effects by strong interaction with 3CLpro. Additionally, in silico drug-likeness indices for these components were calculated and showed good predicted therapeutic profiles of these phytochemicals. Our findings suggest the potential effectiveness of Cat’s claw as complementary and/or alternative medicine for COVID-19 treatment.

      I took it for several years, right through the beginning of the COVID-19 epidemic. I took a break from it a few months after, because I take a lot of other supplements, so I’m always looking to rotate some out of what I take every day. I had no idea it could be useful against COVID-19.

      I have some, have not been taking it.

      Everything I post is just my opinion, and, honestly, I would love to be wrong.

      Even making the disease somewhat less lethal would be worth it IMO.
