Hercampuri has been used for hundreds of years for various medicinal purposes by the Incas. The main uses include treatments for the treatments of weight loss and cholesterol. It is also used to treat hepatic problems and as a natural blood purifier.
A clinical study carried out concluded that hercampuri indeed have an amazing effect of dissolving fat in cells and reducing cholesterol. It accelerate metabolism and help with many liver problems and high blood pressure. The liver plays an important role in the metabolism of fats, in the production of the lipo proteins (molecules associated with protein and fatty acids) and in the burning of fats for energy. The liver also convert excess food and calories into fat, which is then stored as fat in the body.
Saponines, found in Hercampuri, can act on cholesterol at level of the intestinal tract, forming an insoluble compound and restricting the absorption of cholesterol into the blood stream.

This compound can also increase the speed of transit of stool.
