Maca, a root vegetable, is an ancient superfood of the Incas rich in calcium, potassium, iron, essential fatty acids, and protein. This is a raw blend of yellow, red and black maca. Each Maca colour has different properties.
Maca is a perennial tuber that is native to the Peruvian Andes. It is typically grown in harsh weather conditions at high altitudes. Maca is sometimes referred to as “Peruvian ginseng” and was highly revered by the Inca as a nutrient-dense superfood. Maca is an adaptogen, known for its ability to increase energy, build physical strength, improve mood, reduce anxiety and heighten libido. It is rich in essential minerals, EFAs, amino acids and polysaccharides. Maca root contains over 55 naturally occurring, beneficial phyto-chemicals that work in tandem with the body’s natural rhythms. Maca root helps rebuild weak immune systems, re-mineralize poorly nourished bodies and increase energy and endurance.
