Product Description


Maca is a small herbaceous plant that grows close to the soil,with a tuberous, bushing root in the form of a turnip.


Scientific Name:

  • Lepidium meyenii chacon

Parts Used:

  • Root

Botanical Aspects:

Root: The root is swollen and has a conic shape; it is the plants subterraneous storage organ. It can grow up to 18 cm. long and have a diameter of 6.5 cm. It is also called a hypocotyl. However, the maca root is not a tuber; it just receives this floral formulation.

Ecotypes: Different ecotypes of maca exist, according to the color of the root, which can vary from light yellow to dark red, purple or black. The most frequent ecotype is yellow; the second most frequent type is red-white.

Origin And Distribution: Maca is an Andean crop cultivated in a very limited zone of the Central
Andes Sierra in Peru (Cerro de Pasco, Junín, Tarma, Jauja, Concepción and Huancayo). This
crop was domesticated approximately 2000 years ago in a climate of low temperatures and strong winds. Due to its elevation (4000 and 5500 meters above sea level) and the rough climate, few other crops can be cultivated on this soil with sediments of limestone and dark clay.


 Properties :

  • Increases fertility with men because it enhances the functioning of the prostate and increases the quantity and motility of spermatozoids. Many women also see improvement or regularization in their  hormonal cycle (menstruation).
  • Enhances sexuality, many patients notice an increase in their sexual power (with men) and an improvement of vaginal dryness or lack of feminine desire. Due to its content of the amino acid L-Arginine, maca widens the blood vessels (allowing more blood to flow to the pelvic zone). This may explain the sexual "improvement" with patients. Another explication is that maca helps us to feel less tired, which may also promote the regulation of testosterone levels.
  • Maca seems  to have  an influence on the pituitary  and  hypothalamus,  while  these glands, in turn, activate the ovaries, testicles, adrenal glands, thyroids and pancreas, making them function better. This could be an explanation as to why many people notice its benefits.
  • It heightens our level of mental and physical energy thanks to its many nutrients; this could also be due to the effect the plant seems to have on the suprarrenal glands. Some doctors also recommend maca in case of chronic fatigue.
  • Maca is a good weapon to fight osteoporosis (it contains calcium, silicium, Phosphor, etc.).  It  mineralizes  and  increases  hormonal  balance.  It  can  be  an  alternative  to hormonal therapies during the menopause (consult your gynecologist).
  • Patients    who    take   or   need    medication    for   thyroid    disorders    (hypo -   and hyperthyroidism) can consult their specialist in order to see whether the consump tion of maca may be beneficial, as it has traditionally been used to treat thyroid disorders.

The maca root is an extraordinary food, an unequaled source of amino acids and it contains a complex of carbohydrates, vitamins and minerals. Maca also contains an impressive collection of bio-active compounds, many of which, if not all, count for its numerous benefits such as glucosinolates, alkaloids and sterols. It has high nutritional value due to its proteins e.g. polypeptids that make 11% of the dry Maca root and 14% of all of the Maca paste. It also contains  10% calcium,  and  significative  amounts  of  Magnesium  and  Potassium  and  other minerals such as iron, silicium, iodine, manganese, zinc, Sodium, Copper.

The main vitamins found in maca are thiamin, riboflavin and ascorbic acid. Its carbohydrates come from the cellulose and the lignin (polyholosids).

Maca  contains  amino  acid  proteins  such  as  aspartic  acid,  glutamic  acid,  serine,  histidine, glycine, threonine, cysteine, alanine, arginine, tyrosine, phenylalanine, valine, methionine, isoleucine and lysine.
