The annatto powder is obtained through the process of grinding the annatto seed. It provides one of the purest and most natural shades of red color that exist. It is used in the coloring, gastronomic and medicinal industries.
Peru's Social Health Insurance (EsSalud) pointed out that annatto can act as a powerful anti-inflammatory for the prostate due to the presence of steroids in its composition. Likewise, it has flavonoids, so it would work as an effective diuretic acting on the urogenital system and would regulate renal function.
"The therapeutic, diuretic, and antibacterial benefits reinforce the beneficial action of annatto on the prostate and genitourinary tract," said Jorge Ysaac Villacres, head of the Quality Control Department of the Institute of Traditional Medicine of EsSalud - Loreto.
