Hercampuri (Gentianella alborosea (Gilg.)Fabris)
Uses: Stomach, liver, and gallbladder conditions as well as ulcers, gastritis, high cholesterol and diabetes. Regulates obesity

Hercampuri is native of the Peruvian Andes in high altitudes between 3500 to 4300 metres above sea level. It is a small flowery plant up to 15 cm in height. The word Hjircanpureek, from the quenchua "who walks from village to village", refers to the medicine person who travelled with medicinal herbs to treat the sick

The traditional uses of Hercampuri include stomach, liver, and gallbladder conditions as well as ulcers, gastritis, obesity, high cholesterol and diabetes. Most probably Hercampuri acts as a cholagogic agent (it facilitates the secretion of bile), choleretic (secretion and excretion of bile), hypocholesterolemic (reduces cholesterol), diuretic (increases the excretion of urine).

According to scientists from San Marcos University in Peru (Rojas L., 1999), the brew of the whole Gentianella alborosea (hercampuri) pulverized plant produces a body weight decrease in rats. The larger the dose, the greater the weight loss. It was also determined that the brew of the whole pulverized plant produces a moderate diuresis at a dose of 6 mg/kg BW. This has been confirmed with the histological changes found after the administration of doses that were three, six and nine times the diuretic dose in the renal tissue
