Product Description Herbalists Comments Supplement Facts and Ingredients
Maca has been cultivated since pre-Incan times. This nutritious root is prized by indigenous peoples for its health-giving properties. It is an adaptogen, a substance which helps to promote endurance and vitality.

Maca has been cultivated since pre-Incan times in the inhospitable higher elevations of the Andes, where it is the only food source that will grow. This nutritious root is prized by indigenous peoples for its health-giving properties and has been critical for their survival. Soon after the Conquest, the Spanish found that their livestock were reproducing poorly in the highlands, and the Indigenous people recommended Maca. The results were so remarkable there are existing records from 200 years ago which indicate that in one area alone 9 tons of Maca was purchased.

Many researchers and authors describe its adaptogenic properties. Traditionally, Maca has also been used to relieve stress, as an aphrodisiac, and for fertility enhancement in both males and females. Recently, commercial Maca products have gained popularity in areas outside of South America, especially in Europe.
