Chanca Piedra, also known as “Stone Breaker,” is a small annual herb native to the rainforests of the Amazon.
Generations of Amazonian natives have used Chanca Piedra for its effective use in eliminating gallstones and kidney stones. It has also traditionally been used to help with colic, malaria, dysentery, fever, flu, constipation, jaundice and stomach aches. Overall, Chanca Piedra is thought to promote the liver’s normal function by aiding the detoxification efforts that purge harmful substances.
Chanca Piedra is a chemically rich plant that has been researched in scientific studies to have antihepatotoxic, antispasmodic, antiviral, bactericidal, febrifugal, and hypoglycemic activity.
Our bulk herb can be used to make the traditional method of use as a standard herb infusion or weak decoction.
