Maca root is an herb that grows high in the Andes mountains in South America at elevations up to 15,000 feet. For more than two thousand years, native Peruvians have used it as food and medicine, to promote endurance and improve energy, vitality, sexual virility and fertility. Maca root contains adaptogenic qualities towards glucose and cortisol. It has been shown to reduce elevated glucose and stress-induced ulcers. Maca root can be helpful for Adrenal Fatigue syndrome when used with other supporting herbs.
