Samento Defense Against Microbes
Samento Microbial Defense by Nutramedix is an herbal liquid that contains samento.
Samento Microbial Defense is
- TOA (tetracyclic oxindole alkaloids) free
Samento's beneficial properties are often attributed to the pentacyclic oxindole alkaloids (POAs) found in the cat's claw plant from which it originates.
What makes samento different from cat's claw is that it does not contain TOAs, which may inhibit the benefits of the POAs.
Some research suggests samento may be as much as 1,000 times more useful than cat's claw.
