Maca root is a relative of the radish that is native to the Andes Mountains of Peru. Maca root has short, tough, stems that are trimmed with frayed leaves. The root comes in three colors: yellow, red, and black.
Maca root was grown for thousands of years by the Peruvian population as a food crop. As a food, Maca root is a good source of many different minerals. Historically, Maca root was incorporated into the diet as an ingredient in soups, roasted as a supper dish, or fermented into a hard drink. Maca root had also been used as an aphrodisiac throughout South America and Spain. During the 1990’s, Maca Root became a popular ingredient in ancient Chinese herbal remedies.
In recent years, the demand for Maca root has resulted in farming techniques that produce crops contaminated with harmful pesticides and unnatural fertilizers. Today, Cedar Bear™ manufactures 100% alcohol-free supplements with Maca root right here in the United States.
