Harpagophytum is a small plant which grows in the wild on the African continent. It is traditionally used in phytotherapy for a number of indications. The Latin name Harpagophytum means 'plant harpoon', due to its small claws that allow it to grip on to everything which comes close and earns it the nickname 'devil’s claw'.
This plant extract, specifically the secondary tuber, has been selected by Sekoya to concentrate and preserve the maximum of active ingredients of the plant: harpagosides, titrated to 2% in this formula. Taken short-term to target the appearance of acute pain, harpagophytum contributes to the support of the musculoskeletal system and joint flexibility.
