Muña

Basic information

Since the period of the Incas, the men from the Andes used the muña root as a portable refrigerator because it has the property to preserve food for many days. Today we know that “this product”, which grows in the highest part of the mountains, has more calcium and phosphorus than the maca, the key for growing and maintaining bones and teeth. According to modern medicine, muña contributes to the function of the nervous system and prevents osteoporosis.
