Maca, a member of the Brassica family, is a robust root plant indigenous to the plateaus of the Andean mountains in Peru. Grown at altitudes of 14,000 feet, the maca plant can survive an extreme climate of freezing cold, fierce winds and intense sun, a climate that other crops simply cannot thrive in. Herbalists believe that plants with resilience are the most valuable, and maca is the most resilient of all the herbs.

Despite the harsh climatic conditions, and the fact that it grows in volcanic soil, maca is rich in amino acids, phytonutrients and important vitamins and minerals. Ancient Peruvians used maca for millenia as a food and tonic. They believed it to increase energy and stamina, improve fertility, and enhance libido.

Maca, also known as Peruvian ginseng, is a cruciferous vegetable that demonstrates high antioxidant acitivity. The phytochemicals, flavanols, glucosinates and isothiocyanates found in its structure can quench and scavenge free radicals. Exclusively found in the plant, maca contains unique secondary metabolites thought to be responsible for some of the health benefits it provides. It is said to have “adaptogenic potential” which could account for the balancing, energizing and stress-reducing effects reported by some. Some studies also suggest that maca has a “revitalizing effect”, likely from the abundance of protein, unsaturated fatty acids, and mineral content. Maca is also an excellent plant-based source of Vitamin B12, containing 70% of your Daily Value of the nutrient in each serving.

Each 2,500 mg dose of maca has an incredible mineral content, including significant quantities of minerals such as:

  • 37% DV Manganese
  • 30% DV Calcium
  • 14% DV Iron
  • 10% DV Potassium
