Maca (Lepidium meyenii) is a vegetable shaped like a turnip, and is somewhat like a root. This plant is unique in that it is only grown in the Andes Mountains of Ecuador and Peru above 12,000 feet.

Maca root has been used by the indigenous peoples of Peru as a medicine and food source for over 2000 years. They also use it to support and turns infertility, enhance energy, sexual really and vitality.

How was maca discovered?

History tells us that the Spaniards overtook the Andes Mountains and took control. They began to suffer a loss of sex drive soon after they arrived. Both women and men alike suffered from sterility and their libido, too, suffered at that altitude Maca. Therefore, they could often not conceive and if they did, they could often not carry their pregnancies to term.

In addition, their animals, too, began to suffer reproductive difficulties. Horses, mules and dogs stopped having offspring. Even so, Spaniards soon realized that llamas, as well as other local animals, did not have any problems with their libido levels and reproduced successfully.

How did they differ? The native people ate a root that could only be found high on the mountains. Animals, too, dug this root up and ate it. Once cooked, it will be mashed into a powder, then consumed continuously.

The Spaniards began to take note of this and began to feed this root, maca, to their animals, and they began to consume it themselves, too. They learnt that native Peruvians are the experts in it.

The Spaniards’ sex drive came back dramatically; animals, too, began to engage in reproductive activities once again, and the women could both conceive and carry their infants to term. In short, they lived happily ever after, as the story goes.

How does this seemingly magical root operate?

This food is beneficial to the endocrine and granular systems, which include glands involved in hormonal balance (e.g. thyroid, adrenal, and pituitary). Maca can impact key hormones in both the men and women to their advantage, but it doesn’t contain hormones itself.

Maca helps nourish and stimulate the pituitary gland. It behaves like a tonic for hormonal regulation. When the pituitary gland is functioning optimally, the entire endocrine system, too, regains its balance, because pituitary gland is in control of the hormonal output of the other three glands involved.
