Red Maca

Red maca is reportedly more beneficial than yellow maca for stabilizing certain medical conditions. This news is promising for men who wish to use maca for its health effects. The red maca also has a milder, creamy taste. The stimulant effects of maca are similar. The world's leading researcher on maca is Gloria Chacón de Popovici. She has written a book entitled Maca: The Peruvian Food Plant, With Highly Nutritional and Medicinal Properties. The book is partly translated into English (by the author); that is, pages 226-337 are in English (111 pages). This book does not appear to be available on, but I would like to read it. The book can be ordered from this Web site for about $25 USD: A species of maca was named after Dr. Chacón: Lepidium peruvianum Chacón (previously known as L. meyenii Walp.). It is a great honor to have a species named after you! (Dr. Gloria Chacón de Popovici [third from left] with her husband and two secretaries.)

Hi. Bob Barry from I'm old and looking for non-medical ways to improve my health. Could you elaborate a bit on your article, since my previous diet consisted of 3 BLTs(plus an occasional pastrami) a day? I'm sure I'm not alone here, although few would raise their hands.
Thanks. Good article.

Research indicates that maca fights cancer and specifically prostate cancer. It also balances hormones. You can simply type "maca" in our search box to be directed to all the good news.
