About Maca

The maca root (Lepidium meyenii) referred to by many as the ‘miracle root’ is one of its kind. It is the plant that is grown at the highest altitudes in the world i.e. 7,000-11,000 feet above sea level; at such latitudes it is extremely cold and the supply of oxygen is limited. The origin of its earliest use is traced back to Peru, specifically in the Andes Mountains. Native Indians in Peru cultivated the plant in their farms and explored it in various ways. The locals referred to it as a super food due to the countless benefits they reaped from it. They made sure to include it in their diet as it served as both food and a supplement. The maca root has quite a pleasant smell therefore most people do not have a hard time including it in their diet. Its odour resembles that of butterscotch. Before people discovered its miraculous benefits, they gave the maca root to their beat and seemingly old horses; afterwards, the horses would record massive progress especially in regard to fertility and overall body strength. Also, the powerful plant is referred to as Peruvian Ginseng, especially by the Peruvians. This is because of its resemblance to ginseng, not in looks, but in the benefits reaped from consuming it.

According to history, the Inca warriors took the roots before they went to engage in war. It was believed that it improved their sex drive alongside boosting of endurance and grit during a somewhat challenging period. The maca root is still used by modern day athletes to increase fortitude and stamina as they engage in strenuous activities. The maca root was held in high regard as some societies attached monetary value to it and used it as exchange currency in different circumstances. The Chinchayochas Indians were the most common group of people who used the maca root for barter trade. At some point, the Spanish who took over and colonised South America preferred the maca root as payment of tax instead of gold. Also, a Spanish explorer who visited Peru and helped the locals improve their animal husbandry methods was gifted with the same.

A special attribute of the maca root which makes it special is its constituents. Maca contains nutrients of different kinds, with the major proportion being proteins, carbs, minerals and vitamins. The minerals in context include iron, magnesium and calcium, phosphorus and zinc. The vitamins contained in the root, which resembles radish, include B1, B2, B12, C & E. With the rich composition of nutrients, the root plays different roles in different body systems. Its superior attributes are also linked to the fact that it can be stored for as long as 7 years without losing its efficacy. There is no worry, therefore, to get rid of it fast.
Among the many roles played by the maca root is, it impacts positively on hormones and the different processes that the control. Through impacting on hormonal regulation, such processes as brain function, sexual performance, digestion and fertility are boosted. Also, the roots has efficient adaptogenic properties. It is therefore able to sync and keep various body processes in check: lymphatic, nervous, and circulatory systems, among others. The roots enhances all the aforementioned processes while still making sure that the body maintains normal endocrine function. Being an adaptogen, it ensures that the body is fortified against various different physical and mental weaknesses.
