Hando Maca

Lepidium peruvianum Chacón or Lepidium meyenii belongs to the cruciferous plant family and is related to both cress and mustard. Maca root grows at an altitude of 4,000 to 4,500 metres under extreme weather conditions: strong winds, intensive sun exposure and frost. Maca has a long history: cultures previous to the Incas already cultivated the Peruvian ginseng. The populations of the Peruvian highlands valued “Lepidium peruvianum Chacón“ due to its natural effectiveness as an alternative treatment to improve performance. Maca roots were considered holy by the Incas and were used as “fertility medicine”.

Maca is rich in ingredients such as carbohydrates and protein and is characterised by a high mineral content including phosphorous, calcium and iron. The natural Maca root has beneficial vitalising properties that positively influence the hormonal system, concentration and physical performance potential.

Maca – a natural aphrodisiac

What the ancient Incas already knew has been scientifically proven today: Maca root, the Peruvian ginseng, is a natural dietary supplement that has libido enhancing properties and boosts stamina.Maca is a natural remedy that has been shown to:

  • enhance sexual performance
  • improve the body’s hormonal balance
  • stimulate blood circulation in the pelvic area
  • increase vitality

The “Peruvian ginseng” increases sexual desire and is recognised as a natural, alternative treatment for erectile dysfunction or lack of libido.
