Red Maca is a superfood-food-herb with an outstanding ability to increase energy‚ endurance and strength. Maca is a favorite of raw-foodists‚ vegetarians‚ adventurers‚ extreme athletes‚ dessert chefs and food alchemists.

What is Maca?

Maca has traditionally been a staple superfood-food-herb in the harsh cold climates of the high Andes in Peru for thousands of years. Maca grows at an elevation of 11‚000-14‚000 feet making it likely the highest altitude food-herb crop in the world. The character and properties of maca have been developed by the extreme conditions under which it grows. This makes Maca an excellent food-herb choice for individuals living in cold climates and/or at high altitudes and/or with extreme lifestyles.

Maca is a member of the cruciferous family of plants. It is a distant relative of the common radish. The maca plant produces leaves that grow close to the ground and the plant produces a small‚ off-white flower typical to the cruciferous family. The main part of interest for this plant‚ however‚ is the radish-like tuberous root.

Why RED maca?

Red maca has the same nutritional profile and all of the same beneficial properties as regular (white‚ yellow or black) maca‚ but it appears that phytochemical analyses showed red maca to have greater amounts of the compounds responsible for antioxidant and antitumor activity than other types of maca.* This has implications for men and women of any age who are looking to maintain their vitality and energy.

Historical and Traditional Use of Maca.

Archeological evidence has been found‚ that maca was domesticated over 2‚000 years ago by the predecessors of the Incan people. Even today‚ for many indigenous inhabitants of the Andes‚ Maca is still one of the most vital and valuable of all commodities.

The maca root has been used over the ages for its nutritional and herbal qualities. Once harvested‚ the maca root was traditionally dried‚ then powdered. Once powdered it was either eaten or put into sacs and traded for other commodities. Oftentimes cacao nibs and beans (raw chocolate) would come up the Andes from the jungle and in exchange maca would go down from the Andes into the jungle. These two foods (maca and cacao) have a unique affinity and history which is evident when one tries eating them together. Both cacao and maca were used as money by ancient indigenous peoples.

Maca's Remarkable Reputation.

Maca's reputation as a powerful strength and stamina enhancer as well as libido-enhancing food-herb stretches back into prehistory. Maca‚ like goji berries and ginseng‚ is a powerful adaptogen‚ which means it has the ability to balance and stabilize the body's systems (cardiovascular system‚ nervous system‚ musculature‚ lymphatic system‚ etc.). As an adaptogen‚ maca can provide more energy if it is needed‚ but if it is not‚ it will not overstimulate. Adaptogens also boost immunity and increase the body's overall vitality by 10-15% according to most studies. Rather than addressing a specific symptom‚ adaptogens are used to improve the overall adaptability of the whole body to diverse and challenging situations and stress.

During the height of the Incan Empire‚ legend has it that Incan warriors would consume maca before entering into battle. This would make them fiercely strong. But after conquering a city the Incan soldiers were prohibited from using maca‚ to protect the women from excessive sexual impulses.

Ordered this powder for the benefits but I do not like the taste. Description and reviews did not allude to this at all. Very disappointed.

Excellent Herb/Food for Hormonal Health
February 23, 2014
Really good quality from this company. Maca tastes a bit like malt with a hint of bitter. I caution women who have fibroids and/or endometriosis though. In my 30's maca made my menstrual times a breeze, and heightened my erotic sensations. I took maca on and off through the years, until I got to my 40's I started experiencing pelvic discomforts each and every time I had a 1 teaspoon serving of Maca. Long story short...it aggravated the small fibroids I had...seems to contribute to their growth. My fibroid growths got to the point of causing bladder spasms (UTI-like symptoms, but no UTI). I didn't want it to be true about my beloved Maca, but after a process of elimination, it became clear that some chemical components was contributing to the growth and pain of my fibroids. If your in an estrogen dominant state, Maca might not be a good idea.
