Przyroda Ameryki Południowej, w tym Peru, to prawdziwa naturalna apteka; uważa się, że ponad 80% rosnących tu roślin ma właściwości lecznicze. Rejonem Andów i dorzeczem Amazonki interesują się zarówno firmy farmaceutyczne jak i ośrodki akademickie na ca-łym świecie. Kilka roślin tego regionu zdobyło już rozgłos w Europie, należą do nich: Cat’s claw (Uncaria tomentosa), Maca (Lepidium meyenii) czy Dragon’s blood (Croton lechleri). Każda z nich ma bardzo długą tradycję stosowania przez Indian w Ameryce Południowej. Jednak popularyzacja tych roślin jako surowców farmaceutycznych czy też roślin uzupeł-niających dietę mieszkańców Europy wymaga przeprowadzenia badań fitochemicznych, biologicznych oraz farmakologicznych.
