Peru has one of the largest bio diversities of the world. It is home to around 25,000 plant species, 10% of the world total. We believe some 2000 plants in Peru to have medical and pharmacological properties. Already ancient cultures in Peru used medicinal plants and herbs to prevent diseases and heal illnesses. They passed this traditional knowledge of the wide variety of natural products and their use on to modern times.
Today Peru offers a vast selection of natural medicines, nutritional supplements and cosmetics using only natural ingredients, giving you an excellent alternative to mainstream medicine. We can find products in supermarkets, pharmacies, shops specializing in natural medicine and care products and in many centers offering alternative and integrative medicine.
