Lepidium Meyenii or 'Maca root’ is a small biennial plant native to the high altitudes of the Andes ranges, cultivated for millennia by the Incan empire and used as common barter throughout the region. Its value was so recognised as to be in demand from Spanish Royalty, after their conquisition of Peru, for its medicinal and nutritional qualities.
Its cultivation and usage was almost lost to the modern world, surviving only in remote Peruvian communities. Today, it is quickly becoming a valuable crop to Andean farmers as more knowledge of its nutritive benefits and aphrodisiac qualities are studied and proved effective.
