|Maca (Lepidium meyenii), a Peruvian vegetable, is one of our planet’s most unique natural food sources. It is native to the harsh, barren plateaus of the central Andes Mountains, and thrives at elevations that very few plants could ever survive. For thousands of years it has provided the regions’ indigenous dwellers with a key source of both food and nutrients. With an appearance that resembles the common turnip and an unusually pungent aroma, locals cultivate Maca in order to acquire the nutrients and medicinal compounds residing deep within its thick, fleshy roots. |
Throughout the ages, Maca has been consumed to address many areas of wellness. Early Peruvian warriors found it to be so highly energizing, they routinely consumed it raw, boiled, or as a tonic before going into battle. Traditional native healers believed that Maca could increase fertility, and many were known to incorporate it into their sacred fertility ceremonies. In some circles Maca is still used to increase fertility and libido. It is also one of the earliest known “Adaptogenic” and periodically referred to as Peruvian Ginseng.
Today, a number of Maca’s most primitive applications have been validated through the use of modern science. Researchers now know that Maca contains a significant amount of naturally occurring saponins, specialized glycoside compounds known for their potent energizing and revitalizing properties. Its ability to promote increased stamina and vitality has make it increasingly popular with individuals who struggle with fatigue and lethargy. It has also been shown to help provide hormonal balance in both men and women. Now Organic Maca contains pure Lepidium meyenii root extract and is available in a 6:1 concentration powder.
