is a hearty plant cultivated high in the Andean Mountains at
altitudes from 11,000-14,500 feet. The only area where this particular
species of MACA is found is a region of intense sunlight, winds, and
below freezing weather. With its extreme temperatures this Peruvian
mountain area rates among the worst farmland, yet over the centuries
MACA learned to flourish under these harsh growing conditions. MACA was
domesticated about 2,000 years ago by Peruvian Indians and primitive
cultivars of MACA have been found in archaeological sites dating back as
far as 1600 B.C.
To the Andean
Indians, MACA is a valuable commodity. Because so little else grows in
the region, MACA is often traded with communities at lower elevations
for other staples like rice, corn, and beans. The dried roots can be
stored for up to seven years. Native Peruvians have used MACA since
before the time of the Inca's for both nutritional and medicinal
has been used medicinally for centuries to enhance fertility in humans
and animals. Soon after the Spanish Conquest in South America, the
Spanish found that their livestock were reproducing poorly in the
highlands. The local Indians recommended feeding the animals Maca and
the results were so remarkable that the Spanish chroniclers wrote
in-depth reports about Maca. Even Colonial records of some 200 years ago
indicate that payments of about 9 tons of MACA were demanded from one
Andean area for this purpose. In 1961, Dr. Gloria Chacon de Popovici, a
biological researcher, published her studies when her research clearly
demonstrated the increased fertility in animals using MACA. To date her
work on MACA is unmatched!
Dr. Chacon's work
answered important scientific questions about MACA, which contains
important amounts of fatty acids including linoleic, palmitic and oleic
acids. MACA is rich in sterols and has a high mineral content as well.
In addition to its rich supply of essential nutrients, MACA contains
alkaloids, tannins and saponins. A chemical analysis shows the presence
of biologically active aromatic isothiocyanates, especially
p-methoxbenzyl isothiocyanate, which have reputed aphrodisiac
properties. Analysis of MACA indicates that the effects on fertility are
a result of glucosinolates. Dr. Chacon discovered the four alkaloids
present in MACA that are responsible for MACA's reputed positive effect
on hormonal issues such as hot flashes, memory problems, fatigue, and
male impotence more than forty years ago as a 20 year old student at the
University of San Marcos, in Lima, Peru. She continues her lectures
and symposiums on a regular basis to the medical world.
is growing in world popularity due to its energizing effects, fertility
enhancement, and aphrodisiac qualities. Other traditional uses include
increasing energy levels, stamina and endurance in athletes, promoting
mental clarity, treating male impotence, helping with menstrual
irregularities and female hormonal imbalances including hot flashes,
fatigue, mood swings, and other pre ands post menopausal
cultivation of MACA is increasing in the highlands of the Andes to meet
the growing demand world wide for Maca's medicinal uses. In this
severely economically depressed region, the market for Maca is creating
new and important sources of income for the peoples of the Andes.

Any Doctors In The United States Using MACA ?
Gordon, M.D., former president of the American College for the
Advancement of Medicine, now Founder and President of the International
College of Advanced Longevity Medicine, located in Chicago, Illinois,
bases his appreciation of MACA on his own experience of it and states
that MACA improves the quality of life in the area of sexuality.
M.D., of St. Petersburg, Florida states that his first menopausal
patient "started to feel better four days after she began taking
Maca", and finds that it promotes energy unlike any other herb he
Dr. John Lichtenstein, M.D.
acupuncturist and Family Medicine practitioner, agrees that Maca is an
herb that is of great benefit.
Dr. Richard Brown, M.D. author of
STOP DEPRESSION NOW, says that Maca holds great promise for the health
and well being of men and women.
Dr.Mark Smith ,
M.D. has said "I have noticed a significant level of more balanced
energy, stamina & endurance markedly during cardio vascular workouts
Hugo Malaspina, a cardiologist practicing complementary medicine
in Lima, Peru, has been using Maca in his practice for more than ten
years. Dr. Malaspina first found out about Maca through a group of
sexually active older men who were taking the herb with good results.
"One of these individuals in our group started taking Maca and
found he was able to perform satisfactorily in a sexual relationship
with a lady friend". Soon everyone in the group began drinking the
powdered Maca as a beverage and enjoying the boost that the root was
giving their hormonal functions. I have several of these men as
patients, and their improvement prompted me to find out more about Maca
and begin recommending it to my other patients on a regular basis."
Malaspina also frequently prescribes Maca to women experiencing
premenstrual discomfort or menopausal symptoms. "There are
different medicinal plants that work on the ovaries by stimulating
them," he says. "With Maca though, we should say that it
regulates the ovarian function." Dr. Malaspina further notes that
"Maca regulates the organs of internal secretion, such as the
pituitary, the adrenal glands, and the pancreas. I have had perhaps two
hundred female patients whose perimenopausal and menopausal symptoms
have been alleviated by taking Maca."
benefits of MACA are not limited to older adults. The herb may support
hormonal functioning in younger adults as well, and athletes have been

may also benefit from it's effects on hormone-balancing and acne. Athletes
may have a much greater endurance when using

Will I Have
To Take MACA For The Rest of My Life?
since MACA is not replacing hormones it is fine to start using the herb
at any time and to stop without any danger to the body. It is advisable
not to use it continuously but to alternate periods of taking the herb
with periods of rest from the herb to maximize the body's response to
MACA. For example, stay on 90 - 120 days and off 30 days might be a good
rest period for the body.
MACA Compare to Other Menopausal Herbs Like Black Cohosh or Other
provides the ingredients that may support menopausal health. The herb works
through the hypothalamus and pituitary to help insure balanced and
healthy hormone levels in the body. Many men and women notice the
difference within a week! MACA may help promote sexual functioning, insures
vaginal lubrication, and, in general, brings about all the benefits of
healthy, balanced hormone levels in the body.
Black Cohosh, licorice
root, and soy products all contain weak plant estrogens and have not
been satisfying to most women. Many women do not feel a difference when
they take these herbs or the effect is not lasting. For this
reason we feel Imperial Gold Maca™
is a better choice and the results are quick.
Effect on Sports Performance:
head trainer of a major league U.S. baseball team ordered MACA for the
entire team as an integral part of their sports nutrition program after
using it himself and experiencing that it supported his energy. Men who
work out have begun to use MACA to promote stamina and personal trainers
are recommending it to their clients. Athletes notice a difference
within an hour and excel with greater endurance.

generally had the same positive effects without the use of the hormone,
Is MACA As An Aphrodisiac?
ability to act as an aphrodisiac is well known. Ask almost any South
American if they have ever heard of MACA and they will probably smile
back and say "Oh, yes, Spanish Viagra™".
MACA is not Viagra™, but it does nurture the hormonal system
of men and women so well that a healthy hormonal balance is restored and
the body can operate at optimum conditions. Some studies have recently
indicated that the reason for the libido enhancing effect of MACA is due
to isocyanothides and fatty acids. Further research is needed.
How Does MACA
Balance Hormones In Men & Women?
is an adaptogen herb. This means the herb will work in the body
according to the needs, age and gender of the person using MACA. If
a woman is entering menopause and is perimenopausal, begins having
symptoms related to a change in hormone production such as fatigue,
night sweats, dizziness or palpitations, it is very likely her hormones
are no longer being produced in amounts that can work in concert with
each other. For example, her estrogen production may be normal but her
progesterone production is unable to keep up with it. Or, as she begins
menopause, her estrogen production may drop off leaving her with too
much progesterone. Or the production of both these hormones could be too
low for her to maintain a good quality of life before and after
menopause. MACA has been shown to promote the body's production of the
proper amounts of hormones to maintain health. Even in men testosterone
levels will increase, sexual potency will be maintained throughout a

Testimonials From User's Of MACA?
there are thousand's of men and women who have used MACA (Lepidium
peruvianum Chacon) Here is what some of them are saying.
Do Maca User's Say?
How Effective is
MACA For Fertility?
has been known to increase a women's ability to conceive rather
dramatically. This happens because of MACA's ability to promote the
production of the Luteneinizing Hormone (LH). The LH causes ovulation.
MACA has also been shown to increase sperm counts in men. Research
studies on animals were conducted by Dr. Gloria Chacon and Dr. with
extremely successful results in almost all cases! (These studies will be
published later on this year.)
Are There Any Side
thousands of years of use as a food in South America and the recent
extensive increase in the consumption of MACA in this country there are
no known side effects. However, ongoing concerns exist about the species
and purity of MACA being sold. For this reason Imperial Gold Maca™ is
certified by Dr. Gloria Chacon as the species and purity of MACA (Lepidium
peruvianum Chacon) and as having been grown in accordance with
her discoveries 40 years ago.

Difference Between Other MACA And Yours?

Bolivia, Argentina and Peru. The MACA like plants are then harvested
under less than optimal conditions with flowers and weeds that grow at
these lower altitudes. Not all Maca
