From what I understand, the samento is TOA free and because it's liquid there are properties that help it to be more effective. Other than that there are the studies specifically for samento that present a great outlook for positive outcome.

I agree with TaraT. I have Samento in my refridgerator, but I herxed on it, so I am not ready to take it again.

TOA?

What does that mean?

I am going to be better than my Doc if I will continue to be with you - and there is no reason why I should not be here.

Samento (Toa) Free Cat's Claw is the trade name for a variant form of the South American herb, una de gato. It is established that this variant form, which grows only in limited parts of Peru, is devoid of certain types of alkaloid (tetracyclic oxindole alkaloids), and that these alkaloids are normally antagonistic to the beneficial activity of una de gato. It is claimed that Samento is therefore considerably more effective than ordinary una de gato.

Oops ... I answered this in your PM didn't see the post. Oh well Wink

Still, cat's claw raw herb made me herx so it definitely does something ... I find I get relief sooner with the Samento, though. Two days and I start feeling better on it...

Stephen Buhner argues that Cat's Claw is actually more effective than Samento, probably because the spirochetes cannot adapt to the complexities of the thousands of constituents of an herb.

Interesting...I wonder if it would be good to alternate the two?
