You've heard of and possibly even tried frog legs, but would you be up for a sip of frog juice? Communities living high up in the Andean mountains of Peru are espousing the values of chucking frogs in a blender as an intervention to battle a wide variety of ailments.

From respiratory illnesses like asthma and bronchitis to other ailments like sluggishness and low sex drive, frog juice -- frogs blended with carrots, maca roots and honey -- is being promoted as an effective medicine. The juice is, expectedly, green in colour. It is served in glasses to customers of all ages, ranging from children to the elderly.

While there is no hard scientific evidence that frog juice is a cure for anything, that may be because it hasn't really been investigated as a medicine.
