Devil's claw is known for its strong anti-inflammatory, pain relief, and anti-oxidant properties. This is the herbal form of phenylbutazone (bute). TriSana Nutrition Devil's Claw can be used in place of bute when long term use is required, but not possible due to the harmful side effects of prolonged bute administration. In fact, it works the same way as conventional NSAIDS, by disrupting the COX pathway like bute does. Devil's claw has been studied in horses and has been shown not to be a gastric irritant, even with extended use.
Devil's claw is known for its active ingredient harpogoside. This compound is responsible for the strong anti-inflammatory properites.
