"Kitu ya kwanza inasafisha damu, inaosha figo na inakupea nguvu ya mwanaume kabisa.
"[First of all, it cleans your blood, it also cleans your kidney and it boosts your libido]," the vendor explained.
The vendor proceeded to detail the usage of his products. He mentioned that the powder could be blended with hot water, tea, coffee, or any other hot food.
Regarding the roots, he instructed Jalang'o that one should chew the root coverings and then swallow them for optimal effectiveness.
