What Is Maca?
Maca is a plant closely related to radishes that supply the body with necessary vitamins and nutrients and is used to prevent cardiovascular disease and anemia.
It is native to the high mountainous areas of the Peruvian Andes, particularly the area close to Lake Junin, but it is also cultivated in Bolivia and some parts of Brazil. It is grown organically, with very little use of pesticides or unnatural fertilizers, since the plant is not typically attacked by predators, insects, or disease. It is not clear whether the health benefits of maca are the same when grown or cultivated outside of its’ natural habitat, so the majority of the world’s supply comes from South America.
The root of maca is formed from the hypocotyl and the taproot, giving it its unique inverted pear-shape. It also comes in a number of varieties, separated by the color of the root; cream, gold, red, black, purple, blue, or green. These variations are chosen based on the medicinal need of the user.
Maca Nutrition Facts
Maca is an unassuming plant, and the most beneficial part of the plant is actually the fleshy hypocotyl, classifying it as a “root vegetable”. The organic composition of maca is what makes it such a valuable and beneficial plant that continues to grow in popularity around the world.
By adding maca to your diet, you can balance your vitamin and mineral intake, because it is a great source of B12 vitamins, along with B1, B2, C, and E. The plant is also a rich source of protein, a beneficial attribute for vegetarians and vegans, and it contains the ever-important trace elements of iron, calcium, zinc, and magnesium. It is itself composed of approximately 60-75% carbohydrates, and 10-14% proteins, along with fiber and a small amount of fat. The high content of proteins and important nutrients may explain its’ connection to higher energy, clearer thinking, an increase in sexual libido, and many other interconnected benefits of this small South American plant.
