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 said to increase libido, fertility, general energy and stamina and is also reputed to have powerful aphrodisiac effects for both men and women. It is claimed to be 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.
Traditionally, Maca roots are taken in powdered form, a little like flour. Make muffins or bread and replace a couple of tablespoons of flour with Maca. Maca can be sprinkled over cereal, porridge or muesli, mixed into yoghurts and smoothies or simply try stirring it into soups or drinks. Three or more grams of Maca root per day are usually recommended.
