Root from Peru is a hardy perennial plant cultivated
high in the Andean Mountain at altitudes from 11,000-14,500
feet. It has one of the highest frost tolerances among
native cultivated species. It has a low-growing, mat-like
stem system which at times goes unnoticed in a farmer's
field. Its scalloped leaves lie close to the ground and it
produces self-fertile small off-white flowers typical to the
mustard family which it belongs to.

The part used is the
tuberous root which is pear shaped, up to 8 cm in diameter
and off-white in color. Unlike many other tuberous plants,
Imperial Gold Maca™ is propagated by seeds. Although it is a perennial, it
is grown as an annual, and 7-9 months from planting are
required to produce the correct harvested roots. The area where
Imperial Gold Maca™
is found is very high in the Andean Mountains and is
an inhospitable region of intense sunlight, violent winds
and below freezing weather. With its extreme temperatures
and poor rocky soil, the area rates among the world's worst
farmland, yet over the centuries, Maca Root learned to
flourish under these conditions. Maca Root was domesticated
about 2000 years ago by the Inca Indians and primitive
cultivators of Maca Root have been found in
archaeological sites dating as far back as 1600 B.C.

little else grows in the region, Maca Root is often traded with
communities at lower elevations for other staples like rice,
corn, and beans to further nourish there families. The dried
roots can be stored for up to five years. Native Peruvians have traditionally utilized
Maca since before the time of the Incas for both nutritional
and medicinal purposes. Maca Root is an important staple in the
diets of the people indigenous to the region since it has
the highest nutritional value of any food crop grown there.
It is rich in sugars, protein, starches, and essential
minerals, especially iodine and iron.
SEE NUTRITIONAL INFO This tuber is consumed
fresh or dried, the fresh roots are considered a treat and
are baked or roasted in ashes much like sweet potatoes are. The
dried roots are stored and later boiled in water or milk to
make a porridge mixture. In addition, they are often made into a
popular sweet, fragrant, fermented drink called Maca Chicha.
In Huancayo, Peru, even Maca Root jam and puddings are popular.
These tuberous roots have a tangy taste and an aroma similar
to butterscotch. The fresh potent aroma is quite delicious
to the senses.
And Nutritional Properties
Root has been used medicinally for centuries in South America to
enhance fertility in humans and animals. Soon after the
Spanish Conquest the Spanish found that their livestock were
reproducing poorly in the highlands. The local Indians
recommended feeding the animals Maca Root and so remarkable were
the results that Spanish chroniclers gave in-depth reports.
Even Colonial records of some 200 years ago indicate that
payments of roughly 9 tons of Maca Roots were demanded from one
Andean area alone for this purpose. Its fertility enhancing
properties were supported clinically as early as 1961, when
researchers discovered it increased the fertility of rats.
This energizing plant is also referred to as Peruvian
ginseng, although Maca Root is not in the same family as ginseng.
Today ongoing studies are being performed to scientifically
prove the benefits for fertility in men and women.
nutritional value of dried Maca
Root is high, resembling
cereal grains such as maize, rice and wheat. It has 59%
carbohydrates, 10.2% protein, 8.5% fibre and 2.2% lipids. It
has a large amount of essential amino acids and higher
levels of iron and calcium than potatoes. Maca Root contains
important amounts of fatty acids including linolenic,
palmitic and oleic acids. It is rich in sterols and has a
high mineral content as well. In addition to its rich supply
of essential nutrients, Maca Root contains alkaloids, tannins and saponins.
A chemical analysis conducted as far back as 1981 showed the
presence of biologically active aromatic isothiocyanates,
especially p-methoxybenzyl isothiocyanate, which have
reputed aphrodisiac properties. Initial analysis of Maca
Root indicates that the effects on fertility are a result of the glucosinolates.
Alkaloids are also present, but have not yet been

chronic fatigue syndrome. It is used as an alternative to
anabolic steroids by bodybuilders due to its richness in
sterols. Today, dried Maca roots are ground to powder and
sold in drug stores in capsules as a medicine and food
supplement to increase stamina and fertility. In Peruvian
herbal medicine, Maca Root is also used as an immuno-stimulant,
for anemia, tuberculosis, menstrual disorders, menopause
symptoms, stomach cancer, sterility and other reproductive
and sexual disorders as well as to enhance memory.

Medical Practitioners with regard to this herb plant.
Root has become increasingly popular, its use has spread to
medical practices. In the November, 1988 Townsend Letter for
Doctors, physicians commented on the therapeutic uses of
Maca Root. Hugo Malaspina, M.D., a cardiologist practicing
complementary medicine in Lima, Peru, has been using Maca
his practice for ten years. He commonly recommends Maca Root to
women experiencing premenstrual discomfort or menopausal
symptoms. "There are different medicinal plants that work on
the ovaries by stimulating them," he says. "With
though, we should say that it regulates the ovarian
function." Dr. Malaspina further notes that "Maca

Doctors Have Said About Maca
Malaspina first found out about Maca Root through a group of
sexually active older men who were taking the herb with good
results. "One of this group started taking Maca and found he
was able to perform satisfactorily in a sexual relationship
with a lady friend. Soon everyone in the group began
drinking the powdered Maca Root as a beverage and enjoying the
boost that the root was giving their hormonal functions. I
have several of these men as patients, and their improvement
prompted me to find out more about Maca Root and begin
recommending it to my other patients."

Calderon, M.D., is the former Dean of the Faculty of Human
Medicine at the National University of Federico Villarreal
in Lima. He says, "Maca Root has a lot of easily absorbable
calcium, plus magnesium and a fair amount of silica. We are
finding it very useful in treating the decalcification of
bones in children and adults." In his practice, Dr. Calderon
uses Maca Root for male impotence, erectile dysfunction,
menopausal symptoms, and general fatigue.
SEE LIBIDO ENHANCEMENT
physician Gary F. Gordon, former President of the American
College for Advancement in Medicine, is also a Maca Root
supporter. "We all hear rumors about various products like
Maca Root," he says. "But using this Peruvian root myself, I
personally experienced a significant improvement in erectile
tissue response. I call it nature's answer to Viagra. What I
see in Maca Root is a means of normalizing our steroid hormones
like testosterone, progesterone, and estrogen. Therefore it
has the facility to forestall the hormonal changes of aging.
It acts on men to restore them to a healthy functional
status in which they experience a more active libido."
