Lepidium meyenii, known commonly as Peruvian Ginseng or maca, is an herbaceous biennial plant of the crucifer family native to the high Andes of Peru around Lake Junin. In addition to the many health benefits, maca is rapidly gaining a reputation for its ability to promote a healthy, radiant complexion and research has shown that it can structurally enhance the firmness of skin and boost its inherent protective abilities. Laboratory studies have demonstrated that maca root stimulates the proliferation of fibroblasts in vitro, resulting in visibly younger looking skin. The research also indicates that maca extract enhances keratinocyte production, which in turn increases collagen synthesis, improving the overall integrity of the skin’s structural matrix, leaving it firmer, smoother and free from unwelcome fine lines and wrinkles.
