what is caffeine and what does it do?

A bitter alkaloid C8H10N4O2 found especially in coffee, tea, cacao, and kola nuts and used medicinally as a stimulant and diuretic. Caffeine consumption is generally considered safe, although habit forming. Some side effects linked to excess intake include anxiety, restlessness, tremors, irregular heartbeat, and trouble sleeping.

does chanca piedra have caffeine?

The answer is NO. Chanca piedra itself does not have caffeine. However, the only warning we’d have in regards to having a chanca piedra tea with caffeine is if you’re buying a blend of chanca that may contain caffeine.

For example, in the past, we’ve blended black tea fruit-based tea with chanca piedra and that did contain caffeine. If you’re looking for chanca piedra free of caffeine, just make sure you are buying non-blended chanca with no other herbs or ingredients mixed in.

If you’re dealing with kidney stones or gallstones, you want to stay away from caffeine.

From a study, ‘Caffeine intake and the risk of kidney stones‘ “Caffeine intake has been shown to be associated with increased urinary calcium excretion (6) and, as such, could potentially increase the risk of developing kidney stones, although in our previous reports we consistently found an inverse association between consumption of caffeine-containing beverages, such as coffee.” So, what was the conclusion of the study?

Conclusion: Caffeine intake is independently associated with a lower risk of incident kidney stones.
