MACA ROOT THE APHRODISIAC FROM THE PERUVIAN ANDES
   
 
A BRIEF DESCRIPTION
For centuries, Maca root has grown wild in the Peruvian Andes. There is evidence that it was used by the local ancient incas, who accredited maca with aphrodisiac powers.

No other food plant exists in the world which will grow so high an altitude and survive. This nutritious root from the Peruvian, produces fruits without flowers and seeds, in its first year.

The Incas learned that as they grazed their herds in higher elevations, where Maca grows naturally, the herds became healthier, with more stamina and became much more sexually active, so the Incas included Maca in their diets, and found Maca could help promote increased energy and stamina.

The rich soil of this high plateaus where it is very cold and oxygen poor may account for the high levels of trace minerals found in maca root. Today, some Indians still grow it in the same traditional way without pesticides or chemicals.

The healing qualities of maca have helped the local native population thrive in this oxygen-poor plateau where they live. Maca root contains significant amounts of amino acids, complex carbohydrates, vitamins B1, B2, B12, C and E and minerals, including calcium, phosphorus, zinc, magnesium and iron.
This nutritious root from the Peruvian Andes, produces fruits with-out flowers and seeds, in its first year.
MACA WAS USED BY THE INCAS AS AN APHRODISIAC

In August of 2001, results of the first major clinical trial conducted on the effects of maca consumption were released.

This results were published:

-Important energizing effect, possibly due to a reaction cause increasing the serum levels of human growth hormone (HGH)
-Effects blood sugar energy reserves (hemoglucose) acting over body fat (promotes the use of glucose in the bloodstream for energy rather than being processed into fat storage).
-Produces a "general sense of well-being"
-DHEA level increase consumed regular base.
-Decrease anxiety results within two weeks
-Decreases stress
-Improve level of sexual desire (libido) by an average of 180%
-Increases seminal volume
-Increases adrenalin
