I am one of these people that can´t be bothered to have a sit down breakfast, so I like the fact that I can drink this on the fly. Three to 4 heaping tablespoons in 2 large cups of water usually holds me until lunch, and its good to get lots of liquid in early in the day. Other than general energy, the mix has also helped my digestive system a lot.
Everything I have mentioned has reputed health benefits (you know, if you are tense, it calms you down... if you are too relaxed, it perks you up), but at the end of the day, they are just generally nutritious and balanced.
The price is a bargain, btw. Bags of all the stuff mentioned sell for 5 soles (250 grams). Last time I was there, I even found dried ground Camu Camu, but found this to be too bitter, and it cost 12 soles a bag. Still, a huge bargain.
(drinking the stuff as I type, superman speed)
