A herbalist favorite,Chanca piedra is known by several names, including:

  • Seed-under-leaf.
  • Gale of the wind.
  • Stonebreaker.
  • Carry-me-seed.

We prefer to call it stone breaker, the  Stone Breaker has survived scientific scrutiny in the lab as a proven liver protective, diuretic and pain reliever

This herb has been used in India for problems of the stomach, spleen and urinary system

Dissolves kidney stones and gallstones
This herb lives up to its name- stone breaker, as it aids in the passage and expelling of stones and also prevents their formation.

Gallstones and kidney stones are caused by a build up of mineral salts (most commonly calcium), and can cause extreme pain and discomfort as they attempt to pass out of the body.

Scientific research backs up the traditional use (and name) of this herb for its ability to prevent and eliminate these painful stones. The conventional approach to removal of stones usually involves shattering the stone using ESWL (Extracorporeal Shockwave Lithotripsy), however this can leave residual fragments which often require another treatment.
New research, published in the medical journal "European Urology Supplements", assessed the benefit of taking an extract of Quebra Pedra following ESWL treatment. After six months the stone free rate in those treated with just ESWL was 80%, but for the patients taking Quebra Pedra during their recovery, the stone free rate was 97%. Concerning lower caliceal stones the stone free rate of those using the herb was 94.1% versus 64.28% among those who just had ESWL. The researchers concluded that its efficacy “together with the absolute lacking of side effects make this therapy suitable to improve overall outcomes of ureteral stones shock wave lithotripsy.”

The plant alkaloids in Quebra Pedra promote relaxation of the smooth muscle in the urinary and biliary tracts, making the task of eliminating the stones less painful. The same phytochemicals also impede the clumping together of calcium oxalate, preventing the formation of kidney stones altogether, making this herb an excellent preventative for people who are susceptible to them.

With natural diuretic properties, Quebra Pedra increases urine flow as well as creatine and sodium output. There is some evidence that creatine has a detrimental effect on the kidneys and that it can contribute to kidney stones in susceptible individuals.

Quebra Pedra has a similar effect on gallstones (although they are usually made of cholesterol). Gallstones are formed when too much cholesterol is stored in the gallbladder and not enough bile is produced to break it down. In a 2002 study, Indian researchers reported that Quebra Pedra increased bile acid secretion in the gallbladder and significantly lowered blood cholesterol levels in an animal model. The beneficial effect of lowering cholesterol and triglyceride levels and increased bile secretion is thought to be responsible for the ability of this herb to prevent and eliminate gallstones.

Although the literal translation of Chanca Piedra is “stone breaker”, it effectively softens both kidney stones and gallstones for easy passage out of the body.

Treats hepatitis B
Preliminary studies have shown that stonebreaker can stop this virus from replicating; when used as a mix with specific herbs; it can treat Hepatitis B

Prevents kidney stones
The stonebreaker prevents kidney stones from forming in the first place by stopping the crystals that form them from clumping together and hindering the formation of calcium oxalate crystals, the building blocks of most kidney stones

Improves liver health
Treats nonalcoholic fatty liver disease and atherosclerosis which may cause insulin resistance. It reduces insulin resistance and the amount of fatty acids in the liver

H.pylori Bacteria
A tricky one to treat but stonebreaker has antimicrobial abilities against H. pylori bacteria present in the digestive tract (can lead to peptic ulcers, abdominal pain, and nausea) without harming the beneficial strains of lactic acid bacteria

Blood sugar
Prevents glucose absorption and improve glucose storage Which can help maintain blood sugar levels
