Uña de gato (cat’s claw) is rich in the region. This so-called „water liana“ contains
drinkable and very tasty water. Indigenous peoples in Amazon drink it while travelling
long distances. Decoction of bark is used for cleaning of digestive track and intestines,
problems with kidneys or venereal diseases such as gonorrhea or syphilis.
The plant is constantly exploited at Abujao river by harvesters from Pucallpa who do not
respect property rights or season for natural dispersion.
