Maca is a small turnip shaped tuber that grows only at altitudes of around 4000m. Maca has been used be the Andean people for generations not only to supplement their diet but also for a wide range of medicinal purposes. The first Western reference to Maca was by Gerhard Walpers in 1843 who gave it it’s latin name, Lepidium meyenii.

The nutritional value of dried maca root is high, typically comprising of 60-75% carbohydrates, 10-14% protein, 8.5% dietary fiber, and 2.2% fats. Maca is rich in the dietary minerals calcium and potassium (with low content of sodium), and contains the essential trace elements iron, iodine, copper, manganese, and zinc, as well as fatty acids including linolenic acid, palmitic acid, and oleic acids, and 19 amino acids.

In addition to sugars and proteins, maca contains uridine, malic acid, and its benzoyl derivative, and the glucosinolates, glucotropaeolin and m-methoxyglucotropaeolin. The methanol extract of maca tuber also contains (1R,3S)-1-methyltetrahydro-carboline-3-carboxylic acid, a molecule which is reported to exert many activities on the central nervous system. Many different alkamides were found in maca.

Maca also contains selenium and magnesium, and includes polysaccharides. Maca's reported beneficial effects for sexual function could be due to its high concentration of proteins and vital nutrients; maca contains a chemical called p-methoxybenzyl isothiocyanate, which reputedly has aphrodisiac properties. We would suggest you do your own research into the full benefits of Maca.
