(Scientific name: Peumus Boldus)
Boldo is an evergreen tree, originally from Chile, being consumed since ancient times in traditional medicine. Its properties as a liver protector have been proven experimentally, these being the most outstanding:
Reduction of oxidative stress
Boldo (and its active component, boldin) is a potent antioxidant, free radical neutralizer. Several studies have proven its effectiveness in the treatment of conditions related to oxidative stress, such as inflammatory liver diseases.
Protects the liver and promotes liver function
Boldo, in different tests carried out, has shown interesting scholarly properties and colagogas . That is, it increases bile secretion (bile production), thereby improving the functioning of the body.
Prevents the onset of colic
Another very important advantage of boldo tea is that favoring the expulsion of retained bile in the gallbladder reduces the risk of colic.
In addition, boldo is also frequently used in the case of urinary system infections.

How to consume the boldo
The most common way to consume the boldo is in the form of an infusion, after the meal. If we also substitute coffee that has known harmful effects on the liver, the effect will be doubly beneficial.
Cinnamon and boldo
A good idea to make an infusion is to combine Boldo with Ceylon cinnamon. In this way we will take advantage of the soothing and muscle relaxant properties of both products, also regulating the intestinal rhythm and relieving flu and fever symptoms.
