It is said that when Spanish conquistadors landed on the Inca empire, few animals resisted the expedition and they couldn't breed with normality. They were victims of the high temperatures of the Highlands, so they were dying one by one without giving legacy. The Indigenous of the zone recognized Maca as a great aphrodisiac, so they told the conquerors to feed their animals with it. The results were amazing since the animals could breed again. From that time to the present, Maca is known to be a millenary superfood from the Peruvian Highlands. Maca (Lepidium meyenii walp
) has a high quantity of phytochemicals, being macaina—1, 2, 3, and 4 (alkaloids)—the most important one. This alkaloid balances our organism and works, mostly, on the endocrine system. Maca is an Andean tuber that grows in the Central Highlands regions of Peru (Cerro de Pasco, Junin, Tarma, Jauja, Concepcion, and Huancayo). Organic Gelatinized Maca Capsules are obtained through the selection of sun-dried maca roots. After that, they are washed, disinfected (following an organic process), extruded, dried, ground, sieved, capsulized, and packaged in a way that all its biological properties aren’t lost. Maca has been cultivated for more than 2000 years. The ideal climate for this tuber is low temperatures and strong winds that are located at 4 000 and 5 000 masl in sedimentary and lime-filled lands with a dark clay-color.
