Turmeric extracts have shown considerable pharmacological activity, but the exact modes of its actions are not yet fully understood. Most researchers agree that the basic mechanism of action within Turmeric is its potent antioxidant action. Curcuminoids seem to scavenge for damaging particles in the body known as "free-radicals".
Devil's claw is a plant from South Africa long valued by the native people to support the inflammatory response, help manage the pain response, and tonify digestion.* Research has centered on a group of constituents called Harpoagosides that are classified as iridoid glycosides. The roots and tubers also contain plant sterols with small amounts of Beta Sitosterol contributing to those constituents. Recent data provide evidence that Harpagophytum extracts have a broad mechanism of action by interacting with both the cyclo?oxygenase? (COX) and lipoxygenase?mediated pathways of the arachidonic acid cascade as well as with the release of cytokines.*
