Annatto (scientific name Bixa Orellana) is a plant from which we derive the natural coloring extract called Annatto. In traditional medicine, the seed and leaves have been claimed to have diuretic, antibacterial and astringent properties. Annatto tea infusions are used to regulate the production of LDL cholesterol in the body. As well as to cure jaundice and help tone, balance, strengthen and reduce inflammation in the liver. Another advantage of the plant is linked to the strengthening of the kidneys and the extermination of certain types of worms. Among pregnant women, annatto tea should be prescribed by a doctor. This same professional will also need to oversee the use to minimize the risks of whatever the problem. The same should be done if the woman is breastfeeding. Even if it is a natural ingredient, your baby's health may be being put at risk by over-the-counter use. If the patient undergoes any surgery, urucum tea should be avoided. The plant causes the blood sugar level to be affected. This should only be ignored with medical advice.
