Pariri tea – Benefits and properties

by Dianna Leon

With the scientific name of Arrabidaea Chica, the pariri is also known as Puçá Panga, Cipó Cruz, Paripari, Carajurú, Piranga, Crajiru and Cipó-Pau. It is a medicinal climbing plant with pink or purple flowers and green flowers. When fermented, its leaves provide a reddish dye that serves to pigment the cotton.

The benefits and properties of pariri

Pariri has anti-inflammatory, antimicrobial, healing, antifungal, anti anemic, fortifying, astringent, and aphrodisiac properties. It is an excellent option to help treat bleeding, anemia, diarrhea – with or without blood – vaginal discharge, gynecological inflammation, intestinal pain, and jaundice.

Its most important benefit is fighting some types of cancer, such as uterus, mouth, and leukemia. This happens because when someone undergoes chemotherapy or radiotherapy, the body suffers from the shedding of red blood cells. Pariri tea is responsible for increasing the hemoglobin in the blood. So much so that in 1995 a boy from the town of Mateus Leme in Belo Horizonte claims to have been cured of leukemia after constantly drinking tea made from pariri leaves. After this emblematic event, the plant became widespread in the city, and studies on it began.

how to use pariri

For each type of problem, pariri must be used differently. For example, if the person is suffering from intestinal cramps, inflammation, or anemia, pariri tea can be made by infusing the plant’s flowers and leaves. Just use 3 or 4 large pariri leaves and at least 2 flowers. Place them submerged in a kettle with 1 liter of boiling water and smother it for at least 5 minutes. When the tea has cooled, consume it within 24 hours of preparation.

In skin sores or vaginal discharge, crush the leaves, chop them and blend them in a blender with a little water. Then go to the place needed or, in case of vaginal problems, make a sitz bath with the water still reasonably hot.

Heads up

Although no side effects have been recorded for the use of pariri, it should be noted that it is not advisable to start any type of medicinal treatment – ​​natural or not – without medical advice. And as good as the medicinal plant may be, none should be consumed in excess.

The use of pariri is not indicated for people who suffer from hypersensitivity to conjuring, tannins, saponin, bixin, anisic acid, cyanocobalamin, and assimilable iron, substances that are found in its composition.
