Maca, also called Maca-Maca, Ginseng Peruvian, , is a native plant of the Peruvian central cordillera, domesticated for 3.600 years.
This plant owes its fabulous properties to the richness of the ground of this area (Cerro of Pasco, Junin) out of minerals and oligoelements.
Maca is a plant with very short development. Its color is yellow or purple, the flowers are of ivory color.
Used as well for its culinary qualities as its curative, the maca is regarded as "food of the famine", paramount in the preparation of the meals in the event of food shortage.
Incas were large consumers of maca, bringing them a great resistance to the climate of high altitude and the rigorous cold air.

- NASA has, since 1996, used the MACA in the food of the ASTRONAUTS.

- Maca is IDEAL for the MODES, thanks to its low content of fat (less than 2%).
- The large quantity of proteins combined with iron and vitamins, make Maca a source of ENERGY and the B complex, in particular the vitamin B12, supports the nervous system, helps to fight against FATIGUE and STRESS.
- Its anti-asthenic properties of anabolisant type led the body-builders to use Maca successfully as a NATURAL ALTERNATIVE to the ANABOLISANTS.
- One can as well recommend Maca to stimulate the LIBIDO in men and women and to fight against STERILITY, due to nutritional deficiencies, in particular to the lack of zinc, iron, vitamin B12 and amino acids.
- The APHRODISIACS properties are due to its isothiocyanate of methoxybenzyl contents.
- For its properties against IMPOTENCY, Maca facilitates erection.
Dr. Gary F Gordon, ex President of the American College for the Advance of Medicine, tested Maca personally and noted a stimulation of the erectil tissues and said "Maca is the natural alternative to Viagra". He also added "Maca is a possibility to standardize the steroidal hormones like the testosterone, the progesterone and the estrogens." (sic).
- Maca can be recommended in the cases of OSTEOPOROSE thanks to its high calcium content and the boron, which facilitate the absorption of calcium.
- Thanks to the aromatic steroids and glucosinolates (hormonal regulators), one regards Maca as an important food to fight against the effects of MENOPAUSE.
- Maca acts as stimulation on the pituitary gland and the hypothalamus, modulating secretions of hormones LH, FSH, HCG and prolactin and consequently has an important role in the correct operation of other endocrine glands like the OVARIES, the TESTICLES, the SUPRARENAL GLANDS, the PANCREAS and THYROID GLAND.
- Maca allows an increase of 50% of the production of the hydroepiandriosterone hormone, known as the HORMONE of the YOUTH, which normally decreases with age.
- The proportion of Essential Fatty Acids, Omega 3, 6 C and 9 C is very important. These Omegas are necessary for the human life and health. According to certain studies, practically 90% of the people have a deficiency in at least one of them ("The Barron Report" - vol. 6, Issue 1 - January 1998).
The absence of these Essential Fatty Acids was related to many current diseases such as LOSS of the HAIR, LOSS of VITALITY, SKIN DISORDERS, CIRCULATION PROBLEMS and the HEART, and all immunological disorders and even the ARTHRITIS.

In the Sixties, an American pharmaceutical company discovered the immunostimulant characteristics in the sheet and the bark. In 1977, the researchers announced that the extracts of the alcohol of the bark had anti-inflammatory and analgesic properties and confirmed the traditional applications for the arthritic pains, confirmed by Italian researchers in 1980 and Japanese in 1993.
In the Seventies, the Italian researchers identified the antitumor characteristics of Chuchuhuasi and allotted the effects to the tingenone and pristimerine and also in 1999 to the sesquiterpens.
