At Inca Health we manufacture natural botanical extracts from herbs found in the Peruvian Rainforest and Andes Mountains.

Boldo is an evergreen shrubby tree that grows between 6 to 8 meters in height. It is found in the Andean regions of Peru and Chile. .The use of Boldo or Peumus Boldus by Indigenous people of the Andes has been widely documented. For many years the fruit has been eaten as a spice, also used as an anthelmintic against worms.

In parts of Peru the leaves are used by indigenous tribes against liver diseases, for gallstones treatments and as a diuretic. Early researchers verified that the use of Boldo leaves by the indigenous people had diuretic effects, somatic, and cholagogic properties. Boldo has primarily been used as a form of herbal medicine, mainly in the cure of gallbladder ailments.

Rich in phytochemicals, Peumus Boldo has at least 17 known alkaloids. A total of at least 38 phytochemical compounds have been identified. The Choleretic activity of the plant has been attributed to the aporphine alkaloid, boldine uric acid excretory, antipyretic, and anti-inflammatory shown to stimulate digestion and specifically to stimulate the production of bile and its secretion from the gall bladder and the secretion of gastric juice.
