The latest super-food to emerge from Peru is said to re-invigorate from the inside out. Newly-deciphered writings dating back two thousand years have suggested that extracts from the chardle was used by healers to treat internal ailments and were highly valued by the Incas. Just as cattle in northern Argentina and Paraguay are known to seek out magic mushrooms when they emerge after a rain, small animals with a good sense of smell also seem attracted to chardle seeds. The Quechua name for the chardle plant, found mainly in cloud forests, is yura-panta.
Although this discovery comes exactly a year after that of a hybrid booby in the Galapagos, they are not believed to be related.
