The magic power of the muña
Muña is an aromatic plant that treats small gastric disorders. And it really works!
The other day I was not well; I was sickened and had a gastritis principle. Then I remembered: a dear friend had brought me muña sachets from her trip to Peru.
I remembered that when he brought me that herbal tea, he said: "cure everything!"
Obviously, this is not the case, it does not cure "everything", but it certainly helps the stomach and intestines.
The muña (Minthostachys Mollis) is an aromatic plant belonging to the Lamiaceae family. This plant is endemic to the Andes, in the south of Peru and to the Andean departments of Junin, Ayacucho and Cusco.
The lack of knowledge of the properties of this product, with the depopulation of the Andean area, risk losing use of the muña and its traditional gastronomic and curative methods. That would be a pity.
Recent studies have revealed that muña facilitates the elimination from the body of Helicobacter, a bacterium responsible for stomach pain, vomiting, food poisoning, gastritis and gastroenteritis, and also for the majority of ulcers.
It is a diuretic plant, with all the benefits that derive from it.
Mixed with eucalyptus essential oils, it helps to breathe and decongests the respiratory tract.
If I hadn't tested it in person, I wouldn't talk about it, but I think it's worth a try. Obviously, I don't mean that it can replace medication, absolutely not. I'm just saying it can be a real natural help.
In Italy it is practically impossible to find it, also at the moment you can not expatriate (who knows why!), so I will have to keep in safe the little muña I have left in the safe.
