Spring to autumn

Since the devil's claw chooses its own places, it is rarely found in mountain meadows and sparse deciduous forests.


Vitamins, minerals, enzymes


☕ Tea: Add 1 teaspoon of dried root to 1/4 liter of cold water, heat to a boil and let it steep for about 7 minutes. Several cups per day are possible.

The flowers that look like a claw give the devil's claw its name. In the kitchen you can use the roots as a vegetable and add the leaves to salads.

The devil's claw, which grows in our low mountain ranges, does not have as strong an effect as the devil's claw from South Africa and the Kalahari. This is what you should pay attention to when buying a product at the pharmacy.
