A treasure from the Andes Imperial Gold Maca™, (Lepidium
Peruvianum Chacon) is a root vegetable, or tuber from a
mat-like perennial that grows in the harshest, most difficult
farmlands in the world. Native Peruvians have used Maca as a
food and as a medicine since before the Incas. This relative
of the potato and Mexican yam is cultivated high in the
mountains of Peru in an environment of amazingly intense
sunlight and fierce winds. It grows at elevations higher than
any other crop in the world and it manages this existence in
regions that are little more than barren rock with
sub-freezing temperatures each night. View

Perhaps the challenging native environment where it is grown
gives Imperial Gold Maca™ its strength. Maca has been an
important crop to the Andean Indians. Today, in spite of the
labor intensive methods used to grow it, Maca is still a
valuable commodity. The tenacity of this incredible plant
makes agriculture possible in a region that otherwise would be
relegated to grazing sheep and llamas only.
Enhances Fertility - One of the chief attributes of Maca,
according to the Peruvian Indians who grow it, is its reported
ability to enhance fertility. When the Spanish conquistadors
first began to raise sheep in the higher regions the sheep
were reproducing poorly. The Indians suggested Maca. The
results were so amazing that the Spaniards noted them in
colonial records. The records show that the Spanish began to
demand Maca as payment from the colonies.
The reputed fertility enhancement of Maca may be due to its
high content of iodine and zinc, amino acids and vitamin C.
Although the fertility enhancement of Maca has not been
substantiated scientifically it seems a reasonable choice for
those wishing to conceive. Informal studies have been done by
Dr. Gloria Chacon and others but we await conclusive positive
Maca is considered the super food of the Incas - In the
difficult regions where it is cultivated, Maca has the highest
nutritional values of any food crop grown there.
Ironically, nourishing Maca today is often traded for less
nutritious foods like rice, noodles, and sugar. Maca is a
delicacy, with a sweet and nutty flavor and a
butterscotch-like aroma. Its potato like tubers can be dried
and stored for years with no appreciable loss of nutritional
value. The roots are usually yellow or purple, or yellow with
purple bands and resemble its relative the radish. The fresh
roots are baked or roasted in ashes. The dried roots are
usually boiled in milk or water to create a savory porridge.
Maca boiled in water tastes sweeter than cocoa. Imperial Gold

Maca is a nutritional powerhouse especially rich in iodine. It
is a reliable protein source containing significant amounts of
amino acids. The protein and calories in Maca are stable even
after years of storage. It is also rich in complex
carbohydrates and essential minerals such as calcium,
magnesium, phosphorus, zinc, and iron. It contains vitamins
B-1, B-2, B12, C and E and is a source of glycoside steroids.
Weight lifters and body builders are turning to Maca as a
natural and safe alternative to anabolic steroids. The rich
and diverse nutrient content of Maca explains its many
traditional uses and why it is sought after today.
Balance and Energy - Maca is an "adaptogen" meaning
it helps to restore balance or homeostasis to the body. Rather
than addressing a specific symptom, adaptogens are used to
improve the overall adaptability of the whole system. Other
adaptogen herbs are ginseng and astragalus. Maca has been used
traditionally to increase energy and to promote improvement in
both stamina and endurance in athletes. Unlike caffeine, Maca
is a healthy choice for increasing energy because it is not a
stimulant. The steady enhancement of both physical and mental
energy makes Maca an ideal supplement for students,
professionals, writers, athletes and anyone who needs a lift.
The fact that Maca contains no stimulants but obtains its
benefit from vitamins and minerals makes it especially
beneficial for individuals who suffer from chronic fatigue
syndrome. Many people who use Maca also report increased
The Peruvian Indians who first used Maca believed it to be a
significant fertility aid for both animals and humans. This
explains why Maca is often described as an aphrodisiac.
Aphrodisiac or not, it may be used to address hormonal
imbalances in men and women quite effectively. Maca offers a
natural solution to symptoms of both PMS and menopause and
erectile dysfunction for men. Calcium and magnesium are well
known for their beneficial efforts on the female endocrine
system. Maca is a good source of both of these important
minerals and is a very rich source of iodine which is also
important for the endocrine system primarily due to its effect
on the thyroid. Further reports indicate that Maca may improve

Maca is naturally a great source of iodine - One thing that is
noteworthy is its rich iodine content. This suggests that Maca
would be a good herbal therapy for those who have thyroid
insufficiency. It has been suggested that some that suffer
from symptoms such as dry skin, deep fatigue, insomnia, memory
loss, or depression are actually suffering form hypothyroidism
and that they improve when given either thyroid hormone alone,
or a program that combines thyroid hormone with nutritional
support. Along with selenium, magnesium, tyrosine, herbs like
Maca that are rich in iodine are sometimes able to restore
normal thyroid function. The connection of thyroid
insufficiencies to female reproductive issues can not be
overlooked. Early medical textbooks and journal articles
mention the effectiveness in thyroid supplementation in
relieving gynecological disturbances. Normal thyroid function
promotes conception, corrects disorders of menstrual flow and
assists the body in producing better levels of follicle
stimulating hormone. The thyroid supporting capacity of Maca
probably explains its ability to enhance fertility and bring
relief to women who suffer with symptoms of menopause.
Maca has no harmful stimulant activity such as that from
caffeine or ephedra. Ideal for marathoners, martial arts
enthusiasts, weary travelers, and those who maintain intense
work schedules. This is truly a real powerhouse herb.
