Diabetes, age, kidney stones and bladder complications are all risk factors linked to urinary tract infections (UTIs). UTI symptoms can include pain in the lower abdomen, cramps, and burning sensations that affect daily activities. Sourced from Phyllanthus niruri plants of the Amazon rainforests, Chanca Piedra is traditionally used in Ayurveda as a diuretic to help relieve mild UTIs and expel kidney stones. Phyllanthus Niruri plants have also been shown to block pain receptors and properties associated with antimicrobial activities.
Naturally sourced from the whole plant and lab tested for potency, Organika’s vegetarian-friendly Chanca Piedra capsules provide effective relief from the burden of UTIs. By encouraging urine flow, Chanca Piedra relieves pressure around the lower abdomen and helps to dissolve kidney stones while building up an osmotic pressure to expel them. It also contains anti-microbial properties that have been proven in numerous scientific studies. It effectively reduces bacterial aggregation and inhibits bacterial growth by releasing hydroxycinnamic acid, a phytochemical with potential antioxidative characteristics. As suggested in multiple research studies, Chanca Piedra can help stimulate the production of bile that breaks up and expels gallstones.
