Its distinctive name comes from its peculiar appearance, referring to the inner capsule of the fruit which splits open at one end. This takes on the appearance of two curved horns or claws. The roots of devil's claw are used medicinally after they are chopped and allowed to dry in the sun for at least 3 days. Devil's claw is one of the bitterest of all herbs, making a very good digestive stimulant.
