Coca Leaves

The leaf that is the raw ingredient for cocaine bears very little relation to the toxic drug that it produces. Coca has been used for medicinal purposes by Andean indigenous people for centuries and has a number of great health benefits. It contains a great many essential minerals such as calcium, potassium, and phosphorus, as well as vitamins B1, B2, C and E. Best consumed as a tea, coca is only legal in a few countries, including Colombia, so make sure to drink plenty of it when you visit.
