Maca root (Lepidum Mayenil) is a tuber grown and originating in Peru, within the Andes mountains. Of growing popularity today, it was always considered a valuable resource, and was traded with other tropical foods and even considered a form of payment for the Spanish Imperial Taxes. Traditionally, the root was roasted fresh, though it can also be mashed or boiled, and was sometimes even used in the creation of a baking flour or a weak beer known as chichi de maca. Legends also speak of Inca warriors eating Maca before battle, using it to increase their strength and stamina. In more modern practice, Maca is considered by many herbalists to be a super food and herbal supplement, providing the benefit of numerous minerals, vitamins, and other nutrients, including amino acids, sterols, and fatty acids. It is also widely used for sexual dysfunction and infertility in men, herein the nutritional aspects of the root benefit the endocrine system. It is also said to generally increase stamina and mental concentration for both genders, and is even prescribed medicinally in Norway. This is a 1 oz packet of Maca Root.
