Frog juice.

 

This juice is made fromĀ frogs andĀ Andean plants and itā€™s this mixture of ingredients that makes a drink of frog juice so special in Peru. it considered to be anĀ spiritual beverage.

Why do they drink it ?

“I always come to drink frog juice here because it’s good for the children, For anemia, bronchitis and also good for older persons.”

People claim that it can be used to treat things like asthma, bronchitis and anaemia. It also apparently gives drinkers a natural energy boost and itā€™s considered to be an aphrodisiac that boosts sex drive.

But there’s a doctor who said “There is no scientific evidence confirming any medicinal benefits from frog juice”.Ā 

Personally, I don’t think that I’m going to take the risk and drinkĀ the frog juice, due to the fact that this frog died by beating his head on the table plus frogs eat bugs!Ā . There’s a lot of different ways and medications to heal and cure their disease. However, I understand the difference between the cultures and lifestyles and what it can possibly mean to them, but to me it’s one of the strangest cultures.
