1 pound bag of 100% Devil's Claw Root, cut and sifted pieces. The shiny silver colored pouch has a sealable zip-lock style top. Devil's claw root, or Harpagophytum procumbens, originates in South Africa. Commonly known as Grapple plant or wood spider, these herbs are members of the same plant family as sesame. The name Devil's claw root comes from the fact that the fruit of these herbs have an unusual, hooked or horned shape. There are other herbs known commonly as Devil's club, but they are not the same herbs.
