The Maca root (botanical term "Lepidium meyenii") grows
on the Peruvian plateau of Junin and Pasco and belongs to
the family of cruciferous root vegetable.
This vegetable belongs to the same botanical family as the
cauliflower, Brussel sprouts, radish, cress and
mustard. This vegetable forms an onion like root beneath
the soil with long and strong mainroots and a few thinner
side roots. Above the ground it sprouts several short and
strong shoots, at the upper part it branches out into lilac
The Maca propagates by seeds. When it blooms, the plant
carries up to 20 strong and branched out flowery panicles.
After the pollination, which is partly carried out by flies and
partly through self-pollination, the blossoms develop into
little pods in which the seeds ripen off. (They are similar to
the buckwheat fruits).
In principal, Maca is an annual plant. However, vegetation
time, ripening and harvest depend strongly on the climatic
conditions. If the conditions are poor it may produce and
ripen fruits only in the second year of planting. This is not
really astonishing if you consider that this root grows under
harsh climatical conditions in a altitude of 4200 meters.
Historical sources attribute a strengthening and fertile
effect to this root (it has been cultivated over 3000 years).
There are many historical records about the conquest of
the Incan empire from 1530 by the Spanish under the
command of Pizarro.
The records tell of difficulties finding enough food for the
horses while venturing through the Andes. Therefore the
Spanish were astonished to meet a healthy and well
They soon found the reason for this - the Maca root which
served as a basic food in those harsh regions even in those
early days. They also fed it to their horses which made
them strong and fertile.
In the same way another legend tells about the Incan
empire. It says that the Incan leaders used to increase the
vitality and fighting strength of their warriors by serving
them a Macadish. After the battles the consumption of this
dish was immediately stopped and forbidden to prevent the
soldiers from too high spirits.
The significant health effect of the Maca isn’t only
restricted to fertility and libido, it reaches beyond these
thanks to its astonishing richness of nutritionphysiologicaly
The flour gained from the roots contain approx. 60 - 65%
carbonhydrate, 10 - 15 % protein, 1 - 2 % fat, 6 - 8 % fibre
and 10 - 15 % water.
The Maca also contains a richness of minerals such like
calcium, magnesium, phosphor, zinc and iron. It has a
remarkable content of easy resorbable iodine, which are
important for the thyroid glands and which there is a
shortage of in our latitude. The high portion of glykosidsteroids (which plays an
important part on the hormonal balance) deserves particular attention as well as the
considerate amount of amino acid.
In addition to this, there are the vitamins B1, B2, B12, C
and E. The small percentage of fat consists of 1/3 valuable
The Maca root is alkaline and therefore useful in reducing
the acid strain on our stomach.

centeries and has contributed to the flourishing of the
proud Incan people.
Still today the inhabitants of the Andes consider eating
Macadishes and they enjoy a long life in good
bodily and mental health.
In the regions of its origin, the Maca is prepared and
eaten in various different ways: cooked or roasted, dried
or pounded into flour.
This flour can be processed into various dishes. It is
remarkable that even after years of storage this root hardly
looses anything of its vital materials.
In the Andes there is also a well liked and widely
spread energy drink made from Maca, glutenfree Amaranth and
Quinoa cereal, as well as the local sugarcane.
To date, numerous clinical studies exist about the health
benefit of these roots. In the Andes it is consumed to
prevent an abundance of illnesses and indispositions
which can be avoided or minimized by regular consumption.
The Peruvian traditional medicine can look back upon a
broad horizon of experience to which the following
described areas of effect belong.
The Maca is used successfully for many purposes since

to the amino acids (apart from the steroids) and possibly
also to certain non researched polyphenolen.
The main focus of the administering (application) lays upon
mental and physical tiredness, lack of drive and determination,
memory and concentration problems as well as deficiency
of physical capability and endurance. People in the
growing area have for generations made many positive
experiences regarding this broad spectrum of activity.
There are several specific applications of Maca still awaiting
detailed examination and investigation. For example: the
prevention of thyroid problems / to stimulate the pancreas /
as accompanying measures in the alcohol and drug weaning
/ for the regeneration and greater elasticity of the skin /
to improve sleep patterns / increase visual performance
and visual acuity and as a general detoxification of the
The analysis indicates that the ingredients of Mac act
anti-allergic, antiinflammatory and as immunostimulants.

This modern food doesn’t lose its vital ingredients such as
vitamins and flavour compounds through crossing or gene
manipulation but only through destructive manufacturing
methods of industrial production.
The substitutional chemical additives often cause allergic
If the organism is overloaded with stress and strain over a
longer period of time it will inevitably lead to metabolic
disorders of the immune system. The consequence of this
result in the lack of defence against infection, heart/
circulation problems, rheumatism, diabetes and cancer.
Maca not only recharges the empty energy stores but
also restores the infectious and immune system with
anti-flammatory and antiallergic prophylactic substances.

a wide range of the most necessary defences and building
up substances, which help to prevent disease. Maca and
its ingredients (thanks to its origin) is a unique plant and
has been the study of more that 4’000 papers at German
