The highest cultivated vegetable crop on the planet, Maca is a root vegetable that is grown at altitudes of over 10,000 feet above sea level in the harsh terrain of the upper Peruvian Andes.
In traditional Andean culture, Maca has long been used as a souce of energy and to help maintain an optimum stamina. It may also contribute to a healthy male sexual function. Maca also helps you to maintain optimal feelings of vitality and is a souce of energy for both men and women - hence its nickname of ‘Peruvian ginseng’ .
Maca has a high nutritional content. Proteins make up around 11% of dry Maca root. Calcium makes up 10% of Maca’s mineral count - which also includes potassium, magnesium, iron, silica, and traces of iodine. Vitamins found in Maca comprise thiamin (B1), riboflavin (B2) and vitamin C. Maca is also a source of two alkaloids (Lepidiline A and B), plant sterols (β-sitosterol, campesterol and stigmasterol) and some other actives.
