It is said that when Spanish conquistadors landed in 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. This Maca is dried with the natural light of the sun. Maca (Lepidium meyenii
) is a durable physical and mental energizer. It is said that this superfood fights stress, regulates hormone dysfunction, and promotes pancreas function. Maca is high in proteins, fiber, potassium, calcium, phosphorus, and magnesium. Also, it has vitamins A, B1, B2, B6, B12, C, D, and E.
