The discovery of Harpagophytum
This plant from southern Africa owes its name to the claw-shaped protrusions on its fruits. Europeans discovered its properties in the early 1900s. They were German soldiers observing a member of the Khoïkhoïs tribe. A member of this tribe was wounded, European doctors thought he was doomed. This man was treated by a traditional healer with local plants. This man was saved thanks to harpagophytum.
Harpagophytum contains many active substances, including harpagosides (which play an important role in the anti-inflammatory and analgesic properties of the plant), but also flavonoids and glucosides. In addition, harpagophytum is a rich source of minerals and vitamins. This plant lowers the acidity of the body. The right quality and standardization of harpagoside is important.
