Maca is a Peruvian herb (also regarded as a root vegetable) which has been traditionally used for the following purposes: - • Combating fatigue and increasing stamina and stamina • Increase libido in both men and women • Increasing fertility in both men and women • Improving mood • Relieving symptoms of menopause • Supporting the adrenal glands • General balance of the hormonal system In traditional Andean culture, Maca has been used to combat fatigue and improve stamina, as well as for improving male AND female sexual health, fertility and treating hormonal disorders.- hence its nickname of ‘Peruvian ginseng’.

According to tradition, the ancient Inca gave Maca to their warriors before going into battle in order to increase their strength and energy. Many of Maca’s benefits must be attributable to the plants extremely high nutritional content – if any food could be considered a ‘super food’ it is Maca. Proteins make up around 11% of dry Maca root. Calcium makes up 10% of Maca’s mineral count - which also includes potassium, magnesium, iron, silica, and traces of iodine. Vitamins found in Maca comprise thiamin (B1), riboflavin (B2) and vitamin C. Maca is also a source of two alkaloids (Lepidiline A and B), plant sterols (ß-sitosterol, campesterol and stigmasterol) and some other important actives. The highest cultivated vegetable crop on the planet, Maca is a root vegetable that is grown at altitudes of over 10,000 feet above sea level in the harsh terrain of the upper Peruvian Andes.

Maca Powder has quite a pleasant flavour. Try adding it to porridge, hot chocolate, smoothies and yoghurts. It can also be taken in water or juices.
