... the Incas miraculous remedy for physical and mental fitness
Maca (lat. lepidium meyenii walp) is a small root tuber which is originated in the Peruvian Andes in a height of about 4000 m. It is distantly related to our well-known celery root and grows ever since in the rough hostile environment of the Andes under extreme climatic conditions. The natives of that region appreciate Maca as a valuable foodstuff because of its essential mineral substances. For centuries Maca has further proved being a reliable fertility remedy for human beings and animals. In the 16th century already Spanish Conquistadores brought the root over the sea to Europe. Maca in those times was so valuable to the colonists that they accepted it as means of payment.
