Although the Devil\'s claw has been used for centuries by shamans and healers in South Africa , is a relatively recent discovery for Westerners . In 1904 , in South Africa during the race Hottentots revolt against the German protectorate , the casualties were numerous. A German doctor, Menhert, seeing that the Hottentots wounds heal with great speed , observed that magicians used the decoction of the root of a plant. He managed to get samples of the root which he sent to Germany for analysis : thus discovered the Harpagophytum procumbens.
The Roots of Devil\'s claw is rich glucoiridoïdes, arpagosidi and procumbide, which have undeniable anti-inflammatory and analgesic action . The value of devil\'s claw in the treatment of arthritis , rheumatism and other joint pain events is now universally recognized. Studies of several months in patients suffering from arthritis showed that the use of this plant significantly relieves the pain of joints. The mobility and flexibility of the joints showed apparent improvement without causing side effects , especially in the stomach.In fact, the mode of action of arpagofytou inflammation is different from that of non-steroidal antiinflammatory drugs (NSAIDs ) . They act by inhibiting the biosynthesis of prostaglandins and have many undesirable side effects, especially stomach pain . So the Devil\'s claw has many advantages and can be used instead of the classical anti-inflammatory therapies .
