Our organic maca powder is made from maca roots grown in the high altitude regions of Peru, which due to their unique properties are considered one of the world's natural superfoods. The Peruvians have been eating maca for thousands of years and its reputation and enduring popularity today speaks for itself. As an adaptogen and tonic, maca may boost your overall health in a number of ways. It’s packed with iron and vitamin C and contains all the essential amino acids that we require to thrive. Iron helps restore red blood cells, which aids in avoiding anaemia and cardiovascular diseases.
Maca is also believed to promote prostate health. The nutrients in maca have also long been valued for keeping bones and teeth healthy and helping wounds to heal more quickly. Other benefits include increased fertility in both men and women, hormone balance, strengthening of the immune system, and increased energy, stamina, memory and focus. Maca’s ability to balance hormones is often credited to its stimulation of the hypothalamus and pituitary glands due to the large quantity of phytonutrients it contains.
Try adding maca powder to smoothies or including it in baking recipes to benefit from the natural mineral content of this “lost crop of the Incas”.
