Lepidium meyenii

Maca (root) is a nutritive tonic and adaptogenic botanical which reduces the effects of stress on the body and supports balanced hormone levels. It optimizes energy and promotes a healthy mood. It also improves fertility in men and in some cases of women with infertility issues as well. It is used to enhance libido and it improves endurance and stamina. Maca root has been cultivated in the high plateaus of the central Andes in Peru for approximately 2000 years. It is traditionally consumed as a food, consisting of 10% protein and rich in a variety of minerals.
