Abstract: This paper reports the current ethnobotanical knowledge of the oleaginous plant Sacha Inchi (Plukenetia volubilis L.) derived from 173 interviews conducted in the San Martín and Loreto regions of Perú, to which the plant is native. Sacha Inchi is well known in the regions and is attributed to its numerous health benefits, in particular, control of cholesterol and improvements to cardiovascular health.
