Supposed Effects: Peruvians use it to increase energy, stamina, virility, and vitality

It felt like 1982, I assume. I was getting more and more energetic and light-headed from the combination of the sexual tonic, the Bacopa herb, and now the maca. It smelled like bread-farts and burned my nose. I kept noticing little waves of pleasure every time my package brushed up against a solid object.
