CHANCA PIEDRA (Kidney Stones)


Chanca Piedra is the Spanish name given to the herb Phyllanthus niruri that is native to the Amazonian region of South America. The term “Chanca Piedra” literally means “to break stone” which reflects its traditional use in treating kidney stones and gallstones.




Chanca Piedra, also known as “stone breaker,” has been traditionally used in Peru for its potential to dissolve kidney stones, alleviate pain, and promote urinary health. Its active compounds, including phyllanthin and hypophyllanthin, are believed to relax the ureter, making it easier for stones to pass. Additionally, it may inhibit the formation of new stones by preventing crystal aggregation. While clinical research is ongoing, preliminary studies suggest its effectiveness in reducing stone size and recurrence. Its historical use in Peru dates back centuries, where indigenous tribes utilized it as a natural remedy for various urinary tract issues, earning it a reputation as a potent herbal ally.
