The indigenous peoples of the Amazon rainforest have long histories of using Uncaria.
Uncaria Tomentosa has been used by the Aguaruna, Asháninka, Cashibo, Conibo, and Shipibo tribes of Peru for at least 2,000 years.
The Asháninka Indian tribe in central Peru has the longest recorded history of use of Uncaria. They are also the largest commercial source of Uncaria from Peru today.
With so many documented traditional uses of this important rainforest wine, it is not surprising that western researchers became interested.
Studies began in the early 1970s when Klaus Keplinger, a journalist and self-taught ethnologist from Innsbruck, Austria, organized the first definitive work on Uncaria.
Keplinger's work in the 1970s and 1980s led to several tinctures of Uncaria being sold in Austria and Germany, as well as the filing of four U.S. patents describing extraction procedures for the oxindole alkaloids.
These novel oxindole alkaloids fueled worldwide interest in this valuable wine of the rainforest. Other independent researchers in Spain, France, Japan, Germany, and Peru followed Keplinger, many of them confirming his research on alkaloids in the wine and root.
A good-quality, natural Uncaria wine bark with naturally occurring chemicals provides the best value. It contains all the natural chemicals that nature provides in the proper ratio, without synthetic intervention.
