  • Maca: Ancient Peruvian Super Food!

    Maca is a superfood-food-herb with an outstanding ability to increase energy‚ endurance and strength. Maca is a favorite of raw-foodists‚ vegetarians‚ adventurers‚ extreme athletes‚ dessert chefs and food alchemists.

    What is Maca?

    Maca has traditionally been a staple superfood-food-herb in the harsh cold climates of the high Andes in Peru for thousands of years. Maca grows at an elevation of 11‚000-14‚000 feet making it likely the highest altitude food-herb crop in the world. The character and properties of maca have been developed by the extreme conditions under which it grows. This makes Maca an excellent food-herb choice for individuals living in cold climates and/or at high altitudes and/or with extreme lifestyles.

    Maca is a member of the cruciferous family of plants. It is a distant relative of the common radish. The maca plant produces leaves that grow close to the ground and the plant produces a small‚ off-white flower typical to the cruciferous family. The main part of interest for this plant‚ however‚ is the radish-like tuberous root.

    Historical and Traditional Use of Maca.

    Archeological evidence has been found‚ that maca was domesticated over 2‚000 years ago by the predecessors of the Incan people. Even today‚ for many indigenous inhabitants of the Andes‚ Maca is still one of the most vital and valuable of all commodities.

    The maca root has been used over the ages for its nutritional and herbal qualities. Once harvested‚ the maca root was traditionally dried‚ then powdered. Once powdered it was either eaten or put into sacs and traded for other commodities. Oftentimes cacao nibs and beans (raw chocolate) would come up the Andes from the jungle and in exchange maca would go down from the Andes into the jungle. These two foods (maca and cacao) have a unique affinity and history which is evident when one tries eating them together. Both cacao and maca were used as money by ancient indigenous peoples.

    Maca's Remarkable Reputation.

    Maca's reputation as a powerful strength and stamina enhancer as well as libido-enhancing food-herb stretches back into prehistory. Maca‚ like goji berries and ginseng‚ is a powerful adaptogen‚ which means it has the ability to balance and stabilize the body's systems (cardiovascular system‚ nervous system‚ musculature‚ lymphatic system‚ etc.). As an adaptogen‚ maca can provide more energy if it is needed‚ but if it is not‚ it will not overstimulate. Adaptogens also boost immunity and increase the body's overall vitality by 10-15% according to most studies. Rather than addressing a specific symptom‚ adaptogens are used to improve the overall adaptability of the whole body to diverse and challenging situations and stress.

    During the height of the Incan Empire‚ legend has it that Incan warriors would consume maca before entering into battle.

    I bought it because it is nutrition dense but I didnt enjoy the taste. It was easy to digest. I used it in oatmeal and protein shakes. Maybe I just need to use it in different foods.

    Pros

    Cons

      Taste

    I would recommend this item to a friend.
