Maca (Lepidium peruvuanum) or Lepidium meyeni has been an important traditional food and plant in Peru for the last 2000 years. The plant grows between 13,000 and 14,500 feet above the sea level on the high Andean plateaus of Peru. This plant can only survive in extremely cold areas with a relatively poor soil.

Although it has been cultivated outside the Andes it is not yet clear whether these roots have the same constitution and effects as the original Andes maca root.

Maca root is an extremely nutritious food. The plant is high in minerals (calcium, potassium, iron, magnesium, phosphorus, and zinc), sterols (6 found), and contains up to 20 essential fatty acids, lipids, fibre, carbohydrates, protein, and amino acids. Maca is an energizer and potency enhancer. The sweet, spicy dried maca root is considered a delicacy. The Peruvian government has done great investments in scientific research to prove positive effects.

Effects

The nutritional value of dried maca root is high, similar to cereal grains such as rice and wheat. Positive effects of the plant such as stimulating and increasing sexual performance could be due to this high concentration of proteins and nutrients.

Reports from Peruvian educational and scientific institutions have showed significant (120-200%) increases in sexual endurance, physical stamina, adaptability to stressful situations and an increase in both the number and activity of spermatazoids (sperm). Although, this information has not yet been thoroughly reviewed or studied much outside of Peru.

Usage

Maca powder can be excellently used in smoothies, nut milks, malts, cakes, juices, chai tea, or baked goods. But to benefit from its qualities, mixing maca with hot or cold water is just as fine. In the Andes, as much as a pound of fresh and/or dried maca root is eaten as food on a single day. In herbal medicine; powders are generally recommended at dosages of 5 - 20 g daily.

Store in a cool and dry place and avoid excessive exposure to heat, moisture and direct sunlight.

9.400 a 10.200 metros de altitude acima do mar no Perú?
Vê-se que não são bons em geografia!
Como confiar num produto que nem a origem está correta?

9400 to 10200 meters above sea level in Peru?
It is seen that aren't good at geography!
How to trust a product that not the source is correct?

Azarius:
You are right, it should be FEET instead of METRES. Our writer has clearly never visited the Andes region. Thanks for the info!

molto buono,ricorda davvero il sapore del tubero,mi sembra quasi di essere a casa mia,è un po difficile da sciogliere nell'acqua,io preferisco metterla sotto la lingua e farla sciogliere piano piano,un ottima bevanda comunque se mescolata con acqua.
da davvero un senso di sazietà e aiuta a svegliarsi meglio che il caffe,senza pero rendere nervosi

Makes me feel strong and awake.

I used it with Chai tea, the taste is good, however it doesn't seem to really dissolve completely in boiling water.

Any other tips which makes taking this stuff a bit more pleasant?

Ik ben nu ruim een week bezig met elke dag ongeveer 5 a 10 gram te consumeren, voornamelijk 's ochtends door de thee. Ik ben wel erg tevreden met het resultaat. Heb veel meer energie, is niet te vergelijken met hoe dat eerst was, ook de nachtrust is enorm verbeterd en ja, je libido neemt goed toe, zacht uitgedrukt. Je voelt je gewoon zoveel fitter. Ik denk dat dit permanent in mijn dieet blijft!

Vooralsnog beloofd het waarvoor ik het gekocht heb. Ik heb meer 'zin' in sex én de erectie is ouderwets hard zonder rare bijverschijnselen zoals viagra dat wel heeft (bonzend hart, hoofdpijn, blozen) Dus ik ben dik tevreden en mijn vriendinnen ook.
Groet van een man van 48 jaar.
