SAMENTO-MICROBIAL DEFENSE is a powerful medicinal plant, approved as a medicine in Ecuador in 2004. Government officials have allowed 3 drug claims to be used: anti-inflammatory, antimicrobial and immune system modulator. Some of the beneficial properties of Samento are attributed to the pentacyclic oxindole alkaloids (POAs) that are found in the Uncaria tomentosa (pentacyclic chemotype, TOA-free) plant and that act on the cellular immune system and demonstrate powerful immune system modulating properties. Samento does not contain the tetracyclic oxindole alkaloids (TOAs) that are found in traditional Cat's Claw. TOAs disrupt central nervous system function and greatly inhibit the effects of the POAs. Some researchers believe that Samento may be as much as 1,000 times more effective than Cat's Claw. One difference between Samento and Cat's Claw is that Cat's Claw is an immune system stimulant and Samento is an immune system modulator. Also, Samento can be used to treat all autoimmune disorders.
