Devil’s claw is the common name of the plant Harpagophytum procumbens. The herb is found only in the wild, only in the Kalahari desert of Southern Africa; and even now it is a difficult plant to cultivate. The root of Devil’s claw is used in herbal remedies for the treatment of muscle and joint pains, backache and rheumatism. Atrosan® Devil’s Claw is a licensed herbal rheumatism product made from extracts of cultivated Devil’s Claw, rather than the endangered wild harvested herb.
