Maca is a tuber (root) that grows high in the Andes mountains. People indigenous to the area have eaten the roots and fed them to their livestock for thousands of years. Consuming them is reported to have a positive effect on mental acuity, energy levels, libido and fertility. Traditionally, the roots were cooked and eaten in soups or as part of other dishes.
