Muna (Minthostachys setosa) is used as an infusion for its carminative and stomachic properties. It is an excellent digestive after heavy meals. It has a slight mint flavor that makes it very pleasant when served as a tea. Due to its high calcium content (4.7 times more than Maca) it can be a good supplement in the diet since it favors the growth and maintenance of bones and teeth. 

 

It favors the proper functioning of the nervous system and prevents osteoporosis, in addition to recovering bone fractures. Avoid decalcification of bones and teeth. Calcium deficiency causes tooth decay and rickets. It also has a high phosphorus content that strengthens the hardness of bones and teeth, in addition to intervening in coagulation. Avoid osteomalacia or softening of the bones. 

 

Its iron content favors the formation of red blood cells and prevents anemia. Due to its high content of essential oils, its use is contraindicated in pregnancy, lactation and neonates. It is not recommended to use it in overdose or for a long time because it has side effects, such as liver dysfunction.

  • What is Muna Tea (Andean Mint)?

    Muna is high in calcium, iron, and phosphorus, making it beneficial for strong bones and teeth. It is said to be good for digestion, so you’ll often encounter Peruvians sipping a cup of muña tea after a big dinner. The herb is also believed to help ease altitude symptoms, especially if you experience stomach pain at high altitudes.

     

    In Andean communities, muña has also traditionally been used in Peruvian plant medicine to boost the immune system. It’s also been used as a remedy for health ailments like arthritis, pain, and flu, though people are advised to use it in moderation. The Inca were even believed to drink muña tea to ease sore throats, so it’s been used as a Peruvian medicinal plant for quite a long time.

     

    It has as chemical constituents various essences (menthol, geraniol, linalol, isoamyl alcohol, limonene, cñelo), vitamin B1, calcium and phosphorus.
