It’s worth the extra effort to track down the secret ingredient for this recipe, Aguaje! Not only is it the most concentrated natural plant source of beta-carotene in the world, it also contains a considerable quantity of plant hormones, also known as Phytohormones. These phytohormones are the chemicals that regulate the growth of the plant. These are naturally occurring compounds, which have been said to mimic the female hormones such as estrogen in the human body.
