Alright, alright I am not going to tease you any more. I will let out the secret root. I am talking about the superfood called Peruvian Maca in the form of organic raw maca powder.
Maca’s history dates back 200 years ago where the Inca civilization used it for energy and endurance. In today’s modern times it is traded as a medicine and energy giving herb in the villages and towns of Peru. It was an essential part of the diet and commerce of the high Andes region that when the Incas controlled the South American region, they discovered that due to maca’s powerful potency they restricted its use to their Royalty’s court. Then when the conquering Spaniards became aware of the plant’s value, they collected tribute in maca roots so they could export it to Spain. In Spain, the Spanish Royalty used maca as an energy enhancer and for nutrition as well. Eventually the knowledge of maca’s unique qualities were lost and only a few remote Peruvian communities preserved its secrets.
But now things have changed, The publication of a book entitled “The lost crop of the Andes” introduce maca again to the world as an organic raw superfood. In the mid 1980s, The Board of Genetic Plant Resource listed Maca as a plant in danger of extinction but now, it is eagerly sought for its extraordinary medicinal powers and attributes. Now it is traditionally use for fertility enhancement, maximizing sexual performance, promoting mental clarity and nutritional support for age related male impotence.
The dried maca root contains 59% carbohydrates, 10.2% protein, 8.5% fiber and 2.2% lipids. It also has got large amounts of amino acids, minerals and important fatty acids including linolenic, palmitic, oleic acids, sterole, alkaloids, tannins and saponins. Not to be forgotten it especially has biologically active aromatic isothiocyanates, p-methoxybenzyl isothiocyanates. An ingredient reputed for its aphrodisiac properties.
Raw maca powder is also unlike many herbs because it can be eaten in large amounts and be used over long periods of time without any harmful effects. You can start taking it with 1 tablespoon a day then gradually double the dosage without feeling no side effects.
