CHANCA PIEDRA–STONE BREAKER is an extract produced from the leaves and stems of the Chanca Piedra (Phyllanthus niruri) plant that is found in South America. Chanca Piedra has been used for generations by the indigenous population of South America in eliminating gallstones and kidney stones, reducing pain and spasms associated with these stones and treating malaria, colds, flu and certain other infections. Anecdotal reports in humans suggest Chanca Piedra also has anti-Babesia and anti-OCD properties.
Phyllanthus niruri has been found to exhibit marked inhibitory effect on hepatitis B virus evidenced by its exhaustive utility in cases of chronic jaundice and a published study verified this in woodchucks with hepatitis virus. Venkateswaran PS, et.al, "Effects of an extract from Phyllanthus niruri on hepatitis B and woodchuck hepatitis viruses: in vitro and in vivo studies." Proc Natl Acad Sci U S A. 1987; 84(1):274–8.
One study also examined the anti-HIV effects of the alkaloidal extract of Phyllanthus niruri in human cell lines. This alkaloidal extract suppressed activity of HIV-1 and was found to exhibit sensitive inhibitory response on cytopathic effects induced by both the strains of human immunodeficiency virus on human MT-4 cells in the tested concentrations.

In several in vitro and animal studies, daily intake of this herb helped to prevent the formation of kidney stones. The growth of the matrix calculus, as well as the stone satellites, was greatly reduced in the animals treated with Phyllanthus niruri. In addition, the calculi were eliminated or dissolved in some of the treated animals.

"My daughter was turning 37 and wound up in the hospital on her birthday with a kidney stone. The ER doctor told her that it was small so she'd have to pass it. She was in so much pain. She was so upset that she went home and started researching passing stones on the internet. Chanca Piedra had just been released on the NutraMedix website so she placed her order and it arrived the next day. She started feeling better IMMEDIATELY and was totally out of pain within 3 hours."-T.M.
