Maca and its Uses

This hardy plant from the Peruvian Highlands provides one of the most nutritious meals available on the planet.  Used by the indigenous peoples of Peru for 2000 years, it was discovered by western man in the mid 1800`s.  The root powder is reputed to increase energy and libido so it is very popular as a natural libido enhancer.  The nutritional profile shows it rich in amino acids (about 10%) and this may explain its reputation as amino-acids play an important role in sexual and fertility functions.

Rain-tree `s site provides very complete information (including excellent photographs) on maca  and many others herbs.
