Lepidium meyenii, known commonly as maca, is a plant and root vegetable native to the high Andes of Peru and Bolivia. It is the root which is used in Food Supplements.
The rich soil located at these high plateaus of Peru where it is very cold and oxygen poor may account for the high levels of trace minerals found in maca root. The healing qualities of maca have helped the local native population thrive in this oxygen-poor plateau where they live.
The nutritional value of dried maca root is high, similar to cereal grains such as rice and wheat. The average composition is 60%carbohydrates, 10% protein, 8.5% dietary fiber, and 2.2% fats.
Maca’s high concentration of proteins and vital nutrients,including a chemical called p-methoxybenzyl isothiocyanate, may help to maintain healthy sexual function.
