What is Maca?
Maca is also called Peruvian Ginseng. It is an herbaceous, Peruvian plant with a tuber root. The tubers or “hypocotyls” are grown in a variety of colors and they are used for restoring energy, vitality and fertility. Maca root is an adaptogen and a superfood that is high in protein and essential amino acids as well as fatty acids, sterols, vitamins and minerals. It is used to enhance general health, increase energy and stamina, and helps to promote hormonal balance in both men and women, which helps to boost libido and alleviate symptoms of menopause, chronic fatigue, depression and stress, as well as to boost fertility and promote longevity. The phytochemicals of the root combined with Maca’s full array of vitamins makes the Maca plant one of the most powerful medicinal plants on earth.

What is Maca?
Once hoarded by the rulers of the Incan Empire for the sole use of the Royal court and their warriors. It is grown at very high elevations of the Andes Mountains in mineral rich, chemical free soil. Maca is a staple of the indigenous people of Peru’s diet because of the high nutritional value of Maca that enables them to adapt to their harsh climate and altitude.
Maca is newly arrived in the United States from Peru, where it has been used for centuries for it’s energy and libido boosting properties. Because it nourishes your entire glandular system, Maca improves bone density, combats chronic fatigue, sharpens mental clarity, improves everyday energy, and enhances athletic ability. This applies to women and men alike, because Maca is an adaptogen which works in harmony with both sexes, from children to old folks.

MACA root only grows in on small region of the high Andes of central Peru, on bleak and barren plateaus at 15,000 feet, it is the highest cultivated crop in the world. It’s also the only true Cruciferous crop of the Americas. It has been used as a food source by the indigenous peoples for the past 5800 years. The Spanish Conquistadors noted it’s growth along side of potato by the India in the 16th century. The Spanish exported MACA Root 21 years before the potato. It may in part be responsible for the flourishing of the Inca empire, both nutritiously and as an altitude adaptogen.

Why Ours is the Best Maca Root
Our maca is grown in Peru by a collective of farmers with small maca farms in the high Andes. At the elevation between 13,000 and 15,000 feet, there are no insects, the air and water is pure, and the farmers do not use, nor could afford chemical fertilizers. (Maca thrives on a very spare soil) Our maca is sun dried, cleaned and then ground. In accordance with Peruvian law ( maca is considered a national treasure by the Peruvian government, and must pass purity standards before leaving the country.) The Maca is inspected at the University of Peru at Lima. It is then again tested for bacteria and contamination by U.S. customs when it enters the country in Miami. It is then shipped to our packaging facility here in Las Vegas. It is then tested again for purity, bacterial content and any contamination by an approved lab.
Our maca is just the ground, raw, maca. There is no fillers or any extenders in our maca. It is not gelitinized.
Maca is a functional food. That means that traditionally, it is used as a food in Peru. Soups, puddings even liquour is made of Maca. Maca, in Peru, is used as an adaptagen to overcome problems with fertility with people and animals that occur at high elevations. It is also used to promote longevity, increase energy, and is used by people of all ages.So, there is no “dose” it is not a medicine, it is a food that helps your body to function. Specifically, it helps us to adapt to the stressors of modern life here in America. One of the stressors that we may have is that our endocrine system is out of balance. This can happen due to the natural effects of aging, or environmental factors. (The way we eat, think, feel and live.)
Maca does not contain hormones, so you would not need to use maca in a cycle as you would with progesterone cream or steroids. Maca works by nourishing the endocrine system, and bringing about a better communication in the endocrine system. It also has been shown by recent studies, to cause the liver to release an enzyme that encourages the pituitary gland to produce human grown hormone.
I personally, use maca six days a week and rest one day, just because I think that the body pays better attention to any supplements if you let it rest once a week.
