CHANCA PIEDRA HERB - Kidney stones dissolving support.
Chanca Piedra (or scientifically: “Phyllanthus niruri”), a whole plant herb, is translated in English as the “stone crusher.” And we are going to take a closer look to see if it lives up to its name.
Kidney stones are hard mineral deposits formed within your urinary tract.
They begin to form when your urine has an over abundance of “crystal-forming substances.” The most common of these is calcium (remember calcium for later as we talk about how Chanca Piedra works!), but uric acid can be responsible too.
While these substances can normally be found in your urine at any time, a healthy urinary tract can dilute and flush them out…if they are at a manageable level.
Here is where the problem arrives: when there is simply too much calcium (or uric acid) for that dilution/flush to work properly, these “crystal-forming substances” start sticking together – and before you know it, you have a kidney stone.
As most people already know, once a kidney stone is formed, its elimination can be a long and excruciating process. Many people are looking for a solution to not only help aid in the elimination, but also to prevent kidney stones in the first place.
- Some German and Brazilian researchers believe that Chanca Piedra is not only a fabulous “stone breaker,” but also a “stone preventer.” Showing that the herb can “keep calcium crystals, especially crystals of calcium oxalate, from entering the kidney cells” in the first place.
