Quick Overview

Latin (botanical) name: Lepidum meyenii

Common names: Andean Ginseng, Peru Ginseng, Vegetal Viagra

Plant Description: Maca Root is a vegetable root or tuber, distantly related to the Mexican Wild Yam. The plant grows close to earth and produces a tuber approximately the size of an egg. The Maca root grows wild in the Peruvian Andes just below the glacial icecap. It only grows in areas of extreme weather conditions such as freezing, high winds, and intensive sunlight. The rich soil located at these high plateaus of Peru where it is very cold and oxygen poor may account for the high levels of trace minerals found in Maca Root. No other food plant exists in the world that will grow at so high an altitude and survive. Native shepherds learned quickly that at higher elevations where the Maca grew naturally, their grazing herds became healthier, their stamina increased, and they became much more sexually active. Soon, the Andean Herd People included Maca in their own diets, and found Maca could help promote increased energy and stamina for themselves.
