Maca is indigenous to the mountains (Central Andes) of Peru, where it has been a highly reputed food since the time of the ancient Incas. It is known to increase libido, fertility, general energy and stamina. It has been called Peruvian Ginseng and Natural Viagra due to its powerful aphrodisiac effects for both men and women. It can also be used as a natural hormone balancer for women and can be used to reduce insomnia and acne for both sexes. Maca has high levels of many nutrients, particularly potassium and calcium. It also contains EFAs (essential fatty acids) supporting the cardiovascular, reproductive, immune, and nervous systems.
