Cat's Claw / Vilcacora

Introducing Vilcacora tea, a powerful and nutritious herbal tea that has been used for centuries in traditional medicine.

Vilcacora, also known as cat's claw, is a woody vine native to the Amazon rainforest. It has been used by indigenous tribes for centuries to support overall health and well-being. The plant contains a variety of bioactive compounds, including alkaloids, flavonoids, and tannins, that have been shown to have antioxidant, anti-inflammatory, and immune-boosting properties.

Vilcacora tea is made by steeping the dried bark of the Vilcacora vine in hot water. The resulting tea has a deep, earthy flavor with a slight bitterness. It can be enjoyed on its own or with a bit of honey or lemon to taste.

Vilcacora tea is believed to have a variety of health benefits. It is often used to support the immune system, reduce inflammation, and relieve pain. It may also have antibacterial and antiviral properties, making it a popular choice during cold and flu season.

In addition to its health benefits, Vilcacora tea is also a great source of nutrients. It contains vitamins C, E, and K, as well as minerals such as calcium, magnesium, and potassium.

To make Vilcacora tea, simply steep 1-2 teaspoons of the dried bark in hot water for 5-10 minutes. Strain and enjoy! Vilcacora tea can be enjoyed any time of day, either on its own or as a part of a healthy diet and lifestyle.
