There is so much to say about Maca! The fact that one of the many names for it is "Peruvian Ginseng" gives a clue about its nature. Eaten as a traditional food for thousands of years, the Maca root has been used by traditional peoples to enhance libido, energy, as well as numerous therapeutic uses.

We have a lot of respect for Maca because it does something that is fairly rare - it supports the regeneration and optimal functioning of the endocrine system, including the pancreas, thyroid, adrenals, ovaries, and testes. It is an adaptogen, meaning that it helps the body deal with stress. Because endocrine gland balance and immune system function are so interrelated, it often notably enhances immune system functioning.

The Maca root is a hardy cruciferous vegetable cultivated in an inhospitable region of the Andean Mountains at altitudes from approximately 12,500-14,500 feet. The part of the plant used for medicinal purposes is the root. Maca is rich in essential minerals, especially selenium, calcium, magnesium, and iron, and includes fatty acids including linolenic, palmitic and oleic acids, and polysaccharides.

Available in powder and capsule form, this is the highest grade of Maca available. Make a warm tea out of it, sprinkle it on foods, mix it into smoothies; add Maca to your life and put on your seatbelt!

Q. Can foods that contain phytoestrogens such as soy, beans and pomegranates be eaten when also taking Royal Maca?
A. The general answer is yes. However, isoflavones of soy which is the phytoestrogenic part of the soy bean, isolated, concentrated and sold as a supplement cannot be combined with Royal Maca. Neither can bioidentical hormones, regular HRT, estrogenic vaginal suppositories or patches, nor any phytoestrogenic herbs such as black cohosh, mother wort, red clover, licorice root, etc.
