Maca-Composition


A treasure from the Andes Imperial Gold Maca™, (Lepidium Peruvianum Chacon) is a root vegetable, or tuber from a mat-like perennial that grows in the harshest, most difficult farmlands in the world. Native Peruvians have used Maca as a food and as a medicine since before the Incas. This relative of the potato and Mexican yam is cultivated high in the mountains of Peru in an environment of amazingly intense sunlight and fierce winds. It grows at elevations higher than any other crop in the world and it manages this existence in regions that are little more than barren rock with sub-freezing temperatures each night.

Perhaps the challenging native environment where it is grown gives Imperial Gold Maca™ its strength. Maca has been an important crop to the Andean Indians. Today, in spite of the labor intensive methods used to grow it, Maca is still a valuable commodity. The tenacity of this incredible plant makes agriculture possible in a region that otherwise would be relegated to grazing sheep and llamas only.


Enhances Fertility - One of the chief attributes of Maca, according to the Peruvian Indians who grow it, is its reported ability to enhance fertility. When the Spanish conquistadors first began to raise sheep in the higher regions the sheep were reproducing poorly. The Indians suggested Maca. The results were so amazing that the Spaniards noted them in colonial records. The records show that the Spanish began to demand Maca as payment from the colonies.


The reputed fertility enhancement of Imperial Gold Maca™ may be due to its high content of iodine and zinc, amino acids and vitamin C. Although the fertility enhancement of Imperial Gold Maca™ has not been substantiated scientifically it seems a reasonable choice for those wishing to conceive. Informal studies have been done by Dr. Gloria Chacon and others but we await conclusive positive findings shortly.


Maca is considered the super food of the Incas - In the difficult regions where it is cultivated, Maca has the highest nutritional values of any food crop grown there. Ironically, nourishing Maca today is often traded for less nutritious foods like rice, noodles, and sugar. Maca is a delicacy, with a sweet and nutty flavor and a butterscotch-like aroma. Its potato like tubers can be dried and stored for years with no appreciable loss of nutritional value. The roots are usually yellow or purple, or yellow with purple bands and resemble its relative the radish. The fresh roots are baked or roasted in ashes. The dried roots are usually boiled in milk or water to create a savory porridge. Maca boiled in water tastes sweeter than cocoa. Imperial Gold Maca™ is sun dried and shipped to the National University of Agriculture where it is warm air blown to further remove moisture so it can be made into a fine powder mesh for global distribution of this 100% natural product.    IGM GROWING FIELDS

IMPERIAL GOLD MACA The Only Maca That Can Be Called The Peruvian Miracle™

Balance and Energy - Imperial Gold Maca™ is an "adaptogen" meaning it helps to restore balance or homeostasis to the body. Rather than addressing a specific symptom, adaptogen's are used to improve the overall adaptability of the whole system. Other adaptogen herbs are ginseng and astragalus. Maca has been used traditionally to increase energy and to promote improvement in both stamina and endurance in athletes. Unlike caffeine, Maca is a healthy choice for increasing energy because it is not a stimulant. The steady enhancement of both physical and mental energy makes Imperial Gold Maca™ an ideal supplement for students, professionals, writers, athletes and anyone who needs a lift. The fact that Imperial Gold Maca™ contains no stimulants but obtains its benefit from vitamins and minerals makes it especially beneficial for individuals who suffer from chronic fatigue syndrome. Many people who use Imperial Gold Maca™ also report increased mental clarity.


The Peruvian Indians who first used Maca believed it to be a significant fertility aid for both animals and humans. This explains why Imperial Gold Maca™ is often described as an aphrodisiac. Aphrodisiac or not, it may be used to address hormonal imbalances in men and women quite effectively. Imperial Gold Maca™ offers a natural solution to symptoms of both PMS and menopause and erectile dysfunction for men. Calcium and magnesium are well known for their beneficial efforts on the female endocrine system. Imperial Gold Maca™ is a good source of both of these important minerals and is a very rich source of iodine which is also important for the endocrine system primarily due to its effect on the thyroid. Further reports indicate that Imperial Gold Maca™ may improve male impotence and general libido interests.

Fresh Imperial Gold Maca™ Crop Just Harvested And Ready To To The Drying Fields.Imperial Gold Maca™ is naturally a great source of iodine - One thing that is noteworthy is its rich iodine content. This suggests that Maca would be a good herbal therapy for those who have thyroid insufficiency. It has been suggested that some that suffer from symptoms such as dry skin, deep fatigue, insomnia, memory loss, or depression are actually suffering form hypothyroidism and that they improve when given either thyroid hormone alone, or a program that combines thyroid hormone with nutritional support. Along with selenium, magnesium, tyrosine, herbs like Imperial Gold Maca™ that are rich in iodine are sometimes able to restore normal thyroid function. The connection of thyroid insufficiencies to female reproductive issues can not be overlooked. Early medical textbooks and journal articles mention the effectiveness in thyroid supplementation in relieving gynecological disturbances. Normal thyroid function promotes conception, corrects disorders of menstrual flow and assists the body in producing better levels of follicle stimulating hormone. The thyroid supporting capacity of Imperial Gold Maca™ probably explains its ability to enhance fertility and bring relief to women who suffer with symptoms of menopause.


Imperial Gold Maca™ has no harmful stimulant activity such as that from caffeine or ephedra. Ideal for marathoners, martial arts enthusiasts, weary travelers, and those who maintain intense work schedules. This is truly a real powerhouse herb that is naturally grown and no chemicals or pesticides are ever used.
