PURE PERUVIAN MACA ROOT!
Maca is a root vegetable native to the Peruvian Andes. These radish-like vegetables are related to potatoes and are grown at an altitude of 7,000 to 11,000 feet, thus making them the highest altitude growing plant in the world. The native people of Peru have been using the Maca root for its’ natural healing properties since approximately 3800 B.C. In 1549, Maca root was given as a gift to a Spanish explorer for his help with improving animal husbandry in the area. By 1572, the benefits of Maca root had become so well known that the native people would use it as barter. In 1843, scientists started to do research on Maca root and it was then given a botanical name: Lepidium meyenii.

Maca root is packed with carbohydrates, amino acids, phosphorus, calcium, magnesium, zinc, iron, vitamins B1, B2, B12, C and E and a number of glycosides. Maca has a generalized therapeutic effect on the biochemical functioning of the body. In particular, it enhances the endocrine system. This system includes all of the glands in the body that control digestion, sexual function, fertility, energy levels and brain and nervous system physiology. Maca root has been said to help the body defend itself both mentally and physically. This is said to be possible because Maca supports adrenal and pituitary gland health, both of which are dependent on proper endocrine function.
