Maca has been cultivated by the native people of Peru for over 2,000 years. Inca warriors reportedly consumed it to energize themselves for battle.
Maca is a root plant that belongs to the radish family that is grown in the mountains of Peru, consumed as a food and for medicinal purposes. Maca is also known as "Peruvian ginseng" (despite the fact that it is not a member of the ginseng family) because it is used as a folk remedy to increase stamina, energy, and sexual function.
Maca is also a good source of iron, magnesium, calcium (more than milk), potassium and iodine. Maca is mostly known for its outstanding stamina enhancing properties. Maca is not a stimulant, rather, it is a stress-adaptor. It aids energy and endurance, helps to maintain a healthy immune system and re-mineralizes poorly nourished bodies.
