Maca Organic Seeds (Lepidium meyenii) Aphrodisiac

Price for Package of 20 or 40 seeds.

Maca (Lepidium meyenii) is a hearty root vegetable grown in the high Andes of Bolivia and Peru. Cultivated since pre-Incan times, it is prized by indigenous peoples for its nutritional and medicinal properties along with its power as an aphrodisiac, energy enhancer, and hormonal balancer.

Nutritional Profile:

A dietary staple for the indigenous peoples of the Andes, Maca (L. meyenii) is rich in nutrients, containing 31 different minerals, amino acids, antioxidants, alkaloids, and sterols. Maca is an "adaptogen", a substance that brings the body to a heightened state of resistance to disease. Studies suggest that it has a balancing effect on the hypothalamus, which in turn balances other endocrine glands in the body.

Clinical Research:

Maca (L. meyenii) root has flourished for thousands of years in the high Andes at altitudes up to 14,000 feet, in extreme climatic conditions where few other plants can survive a single season. Scientists suggest that Maca's remarkable endurance may help to explain its energizing and adaptogenic properties. Peruvian and Chinese researchers have conducted clinical tests on both humans and animals, verifying Maca's capacity to strengthen the libido and increase sperm count.
