Overview of Chamberbitter

Botanical Name: Phyllanthus urinaria


Order: Malpighiales


Family: Phyllanthaceae


A species of Phyllanthus that is native to South and Southeast Asia. Chamberbitter is also known as gripeweed. The "urinaria" in its botanical name comes from its historical (and current) use to treat kidney and urinary stones. Similar to Phyllanthus amarus and Phyllanthus niruri, this plant is also being used to treat hepatitis B and other liver problems. However, do not confuse this plant with Phyllanthus amarus and Phyllanthus niruri.
