Boldo is a dietary supplement formulated to promote gallbladder, urinary system, and gastrointestinal health. Boldo is available in liquid form from Natura-Genics®.
How it Works
The origins of boldo can be traced back to South America, where this evergreen shrub has long been valued for its therapeutic properties. Its leaves are renowned for containing a diverse array of compounds, including volatile oils, flavonoids, alkaloids, and tannins.
Benefits of Boldo
- Promotes urinary system health
- Promotes diuretic effects
- Supports gallbladder health
- Supports gastrointestinal health
The body relies on the filtration of blood and the creation of urine for optimal health, which is the urinary system's main function. Boldo leaves contain a chemical called boldine, which has diuretic properties. Diuretics aid in the release of excess fluid and salt from the body. Studies have even shown that boldo may increase urine output by an impressive 50%! Additionally, it promotes the secretion of uric acid, which can provide support against urinary tract infections.
The gallbladder is a small organ located below the liver. It acts as a storage unit for bile, fluids, fats, and cholesterol. Its main function is to supply bile to the small intestine. Boldo is well known for promoting bile production. The primary alkaloid in boldo, known as boldine, is believed to be responsible for its choleretic and diuretic properties.
Supports Gastrointestinal Health
Boldo has a rich history of being used to support gastrointestinal health for countless generations. It is believed to promote gentle laxative effects and relief from gas in the intestines. The choleretic and hepatic properties of boldine are believed to support the health of vital organs in the gastrointestinal system, including the gallbladder and the liver.
