The ancient Incans used maca root as far back as two thousand years ago, when it was revered not only as a staple crop, but as a potent medicinal herb. Folktales about this high nutrient food describe how Incan warriors consumed large quantities of the product before going into battle to increase energy and strength.
Today it is consumed throughout the world for it's ability to impart energy, to balance and assist the hormone system and is even known as a fantastic aphrodisiac, whilst containing a huge amount of nutrients, minerals and all the essential amino acids.
Rather than providing hormones to the body, Maca acts an an adaptogen, meaning it responds to each body differently. If a particular hormone is being produced too much, maca will regulate the body to produce less. And if the body is producing not enough, it bumps up production.
Maca stimulates and nurtures the hypothalamus and pituitary glands (named the master glands) of the body, which in turn regulate the adrenal, thyroid, pancreas, ovarian and testicular glands. Sexual development, tissue function, mood & growth are all dependent on a healthy hormonal balance, and Maca is incredible in it's ability to do achieve just that.
Maca has been traditionally used by herbalists to treat PMS problems, menopause, hot flushes, increasing energy & endurance and for the treatment of depression rather than using hormone replacement therapy.
This organic super food delivers a beneficial amount of plant-based protein and around 8% of maca is dietary fiber.

Maca also contains energy boosting and immune revatalising Vitamins B1, 2, and 3, along with small quantities of C, E, and B6.
Known as a great tool for men to enhance fertility and improve sexual function, Maca has become to be known as "nature's viagra". Several studies have shown Maca to have a positive effect on sexual dysfunction
