Harpagophytum is a plant specific to the south of the African continent: savannas with sandy soils of the Kalahari (Namibia, Botswana and South Africa) where it is concentrated around water points, farms and roads. It is a perennial plant with radiating creeping stems, with opposite leaves remarkable for its large solitary flowers (4-6 m) whose tube, light yellow, widens into a lobed corolla of a deep purplish red and by its fruit , a woody capsule furnished with prickles terminated by a crown of curved and sharp hooks. The main root is an axis that goes vertically into the ground up to a meter deep. The secondary tubers can reach up to 6 cm in diameter and 25 cm in length and are covered with a light brown to reddish brown suber. The parts used in medicine are the secondary tubercles.
Harpagophytum is a plant from Namibia imported into Europe since 1953. The indigenous peoples of southern Africa use this plant to relieve many ailments, including rheumatic pain, digestive disorders, fever and to relieve parturients. The Latin name Harpagophytum, which means "vegetable harpoon", comes from the fact that the fruit has claws that seem specially designed to grip the paws, hair and skin of living things that rub against them. Its common name, "devil's claw" derives from the frantic agitation of animals when fruit has become encrusted in their hooves or fleece.
