WHAT IS MACA? The maca plant is a herbaceous annual, a hardy cruciferous vegetable, from the carrot, radish and parsnip family. The root is a tuber, similar in appearance to a small turnip. It is either cream-coloured or purple when harvested. Similarly to Ginseng, it is used for its health benefits, to increase strength, energy, stamina, libido and sexual function. Maca is said to be a "legendary sex-enhancing root, passed down from the Inca". It is often referred to as "Peruvian Ginseng", even though it is unrelated botanically.
