It is also revered as a general tonic to help with heart function and circulation.
Wound healing is said to be helped with direct application of Cha de Bugre.
What does Cha de Bugre do? Many people believe Cha de Bugre decreases appetite, but there has been no scientific documentation about that. Cha de Bugre needs further study to see if it has any direct medical uses.
