Lepidium meyenii, known as maca or Peruvian ginseng, is an edible herbaceous biennial plant of the family Brassicaceae that is native to South America in the high Andes mountains of Peru. It was found exclusively at the Meseta de Bombón plateau close to Lake Junin in the late 1980s.
Maca has traditionally been used as a sexual enhancer. It has been used all over the world and is reported to affect both men and women. The effect is not understood to be hormonal, as it has no effect on estrogen or testosterone.
Maca is starting to be investigated for its use as a mild “nootropic” with some users reporting improved cognitive ability, as well as others suggesting it can have an effect on bone health.
Meadowsweet has a long and distinguished history of medicinal use and is mentioned in some of the most famous literary works of the middle ages. It was one of the three herbs held to be most sacred by the Celtic druids and was used to flavour mead – hence the name.
