|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.
Maca has been 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.

harmful stimulant activity such as that found in caffeine or

Imperial Gold Maca™ is
analyzed at the National University of Agriculture in La
Molina, Peru under the guidance and supervision of this
teaching University, the quality and potency are never
compromised from these hand picked pure 100% natural roots.
Because of enormous popularity,
Maca's origin has been compromised and is being grown in Argentina, Bolivia,
Chile, China, Japan and parts of the United States. Any Maca that is not from
the original growing areas of the Andean Mountains will not contain the full or
true medicinal, nutritional and healing qualities that this plant is truly known for.
Currently the Peruvian Government has established very
strict laws that does not permit the seeds to leave the
country nor can the whole root leave without being
pulverized first into a powder.

Maca™ is also available and is produced exclusively at The
National University Of Agriculture, At La Molina, Peru.
