The benefits of chewing Chew Coca leaves. The three leaf offering sign to pachamama.

Despite their obvious qualities, que Escobar, and the fact it’s actually very difficult to get hold of them outside of Peru and Bolivia (although you can buy them in tea form elsewhere). There’s a reason the Incas and Peruvians chew these leaves like Europeans and Americans chew gum

White teeth
Chewing the leaves strengthens your gums and whitens your teeth. The same oxidization that is responsible for overcoming high-altitude sickness also keeps the teeth pearly white

Minerals and vitamins
jam packed full of minerals and vitamins including iron, calcium, and vitamins C, E, B1 and B2. They also contain minerals such as calcium, potassium, barium, copper and magnesium.

Pains
