Karuah ChancaPlus™ is a delicious, easy-drinking alternative to the occasional coffee or tealeaf tea and is a rich source of phytonutrients that may support a healthy calcium-magnesium balance.
Enjoy one serve a day (1-2g in a cup of warm water with a slice of lemon if you like) as an occasional tea. There is no real need to take it every day for more than a week although it may be a good idea to repeat this 7-day daily drink every two or three months and part of a sensible health plan. This is particularly true if you tend to drink lots of coffee throughout the day, do not drink water regularly each day and eat a lot of the food sources of calcium (see below).
However, if you are looking for more of a ‘clean up’ because you found us searching Google for a solution to a very painful situation that might be felt just behind the lower ribs in your back, then a cup every 6 to 8 hours is a good idea. You might need to maintain this for up to a day and a half. Feel free to contact us for more information. Drink lots of water too as ChancaPlus™ tea has a diuretic effect.
Scientific research tells us that calcium salts which include calcium oxalate, calcium urate, calcium phosphate and calcium cholesterol are commonly deposited in our soft tissues and blood vessels. This is due to our modern diet as we rely on fewer and fewer food species, on food fragments and almost daily consumption of lots of calcium from pharmaceuticals, bakery preservatives, dairy products, sesame seed products (eg tahini) and high oxalate leafy greens (spinach, silverbeet), miso soup, French fries, sweet potatoes … the list goes on.
By way of academic interest only, chanca piedra has a long history of use among a range of traditional cultures from Ayurvedic Indians on the subcontinent to Peruvian Indians in the Amazon. The herb appears to offer many applications for health maintenance but its ability to gelatinize calcium deposits makes it a sort of a soft tissue rust remover.
The main ingredient in ChancaPlus™ is the focus in this short history of uses of Chanca piedra.
