Benefits of Boldo
• Promotes Urinary Health
The urinary system’s function is to filter blood and create urine. The chemical boldine, found in boldo leaves, promotes diuretic effects in the body. Diuretics help the body release any extra fluid or salt. Some research has found that boldo may increase urine output by 50%. It may also promote the secretion of uric acid, which may support a healthy urinary tract against infections.
• Promotes Gallbladder Health
The gallbladder is a small organ located under the liver that stores bile, fluids, fats, and cholesterol. It helps deliver bile to the small intestine. Boldo is well known for its ability to promote the production of bile. Boldine, the major alkaloid found in boldo, may be responsible for promoting its choleretic and diuretic properties.
• Supports Gastrointestinal Health
Boldo has traditionally been used to support gastrointestinal health for thousands of years. It is believed to have mild laxative effects and may also promote the relief of gas in the intestines. The choleretic and hepatic properties of boldine support the health of organs found in the gastrointestinal system such as the gallbladder and the liver.
