Maca Root has been cultivated and grown high in the Andean Mountains of Peru for thousands of years. Recently, the many health benefits of Maca have been brought to the awareness of the developing world. Also known as “Peruvian Ginseng,” this hardy root grows where no other cultivated crops can survive. With small leaves that hover close to the ground, this plant flourishes at altitudes between 9,000 to 14,000 feet in the extreme climate of freezing cold winds and strong sunlight.
Maca root (Lepidium Meyenii) is a member of the cruciferous family, like broccoli and cabbage, but due to its unique properties it is considered one of the world’s natural “superfoods.”
It is also an Adaptogen, and this simply means that it is a nutritive substance that raises the body’s state of resistance to disease while remaining nontoxic to the recipient. Adaptogens increase immunity by improving the overall ability of the entire body to take on challenging and stressful situations.

Organic Yellow Maca Root
Sometimes referred to as “Yellow Maca”, qpproximately 60% of all the Maca roots harvested have a cream colour. Therefore, the Cream Maca is the most popular and inexpensive version of Maca.

The Health Benefits of Maca
Maca is powerfully abundant in amino acids, phytonutrients, healthy fatty acids, vitamins, and minerals. This superfood has the ability to increase energy and stamina, oxygenate the blood, support neurotransmitter production and enhance libido.
Scientists and doctors are now finding Maca to be one of the most optimal and natural ways to balance and support endocrine health by aiding in the regulation of healthy hormone production with its adaptogenic qualities.
While Maca contains no hormones itself, it provides a rare set of nutrients that nourish the endocrine system and supports the adrenal glands and the thyroid to produce vital hormones in the proper dosages determined by the bodily needs of the individual. This unique blend of nutrients found in the powdered Maca root can also contribute to regulating metabolism and to increasing energy levels, sexual development, and the sense of well-being and attitude.
Its ability to positively increase one’s mindset comes from the fact that Maca works directly on the hypothalamus and pituitary glands. In addition, it has the beneficial power of rejuvenating exhausted adrenal glands, which helps the body in its ability to handle stressful situations.
This medicinal root can provide relief from symptoms of menopause and andropause and can slow down the aging process by enhancing hormonal system function that supports ideal levels of estrogen, progesterone, testosterone, DHEA, and the human growth hormone.
