CNN's Elizabeth Cohen traveled to the Peruvian Highlands with Zoe Helene and her husband, ethnobotanist Chris Kilham, to investigate Maca, an aphrodisiac in Peru that is known as a powerful natural aphrodisiac. Chris is widely known for his sustainability work with maca and the native people of the Peruvian Highlands, where maca is grown. Maca has been cultivated as a life-sustaining substance in the Andes for 2000 years. It is legendary for delivering energy, mental clarity, and enhancing libido. Producer, John Bonifield, is in the photo in the background (left).
