maca, the medicinal root

Grown in central Peru, maca root has been cultivated as a medicinal crop in Central and South America for over 3000 years. The plant itself is closely related to the radish. It has an odor similar to butterscotch and has been used in cultures around the world as a powerful healing ingredient and often used to make medicine.


Maca is one of the most well known superfoods. It is an incredible source of clean energy for the body and has been used for thousands of years to boost stamina, and improve athletic performance and memory.


Although Maca is not only a great source of energy and stamina, it also has been used medicinally for many other treatments and as a preventative medicinal herb. People take maca for “tired blood” (anemia); chronic fatigue syndrome(CFS); female hormone imbalance, menstrual problems, symptoms of menopause, improving fertility, and sexual dysfunction caused by antidepressants, weak bones (osteoporosis), depression, stomach cancer, leukemia, HIV/AIDS,tuberculosis, erectile dysfunction (ED), to arouse sexual desire, and to boost the immune system.
