Can you explain the recommended use for Devil's Claw?
Question: I am a bit confused concerning the recommended use of Devil's claw root. Is it to be seen as a supplement that one can use for a horse in full training as support, or is it a painkiller that should only be used for a horse at rest/recovery? Thank you!
Dr. Kellon: That's an excellent question. On one hand, the antioxidant action of Devil's Claw can be viewed as a way to help prevent hard working tissues from damage: http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/23982320
